Boiled Rice

Rice is a popular staple all around the world and it is available in different textures, sizes, colors, and flavors. The textural attributes of rice determine how certain rice varieties are used. For example, rice which is soft, sweet, and sticky is commonly used in desert applications or sushi. Firm, savory, large grain rice is often mixed with proteins to create filling meals. Rice firmness can be difficult to measure. This application study presents a boiled rice firmness test method using the TA.XTPlus Texture Analyzer, Exponent Software, and TA-93WST Mini Wire Screen Extrusion fixture.
