Changes in Fatty Acid Profile of Basmati and Non Basmati Rice Genotypes during Storage
AbstractRice (Oryza sativa.L.) is an important stapie crop of the world and mainly consumed in the form of whole grains. The rice obtained from freshly harvested paddy is less suitable for processing and culinary utilization. The cooking and eating properties of rice change dramatically with its storage after harvest and this phenomenon is called ageing of rice. It is a common practice to age the freshly harvested rice at least for six months before consumption. Basmati rice is valued highly in many parts of the world and is preferred over non-basmati, because after cooking, they are soft, non sticky, possess pleasant exauisite aroma, elongate extremely lengthwise with least breadth-wise swelling on cooking.
