Although rice is highly nutritious, a lot of the quality is lost during processing. This results in poor quality rice on the market. So consumers turn to imported rice. In this video you will learn about parboiling, a way to improve the quality of rice by treating paddy with warm water and steam.

There are many good reasons for parboiling rice. The market for quality rice is growing. Food vendors and restaurant owners start to use parboiled rice because it is already clean and easy to cook. Most importantly, parboiled rice is more nutritious than non-parboiled rice
