Abstract

A study was made of the parboiled rice market in Sri Lanka. Rice was obtained from commercial processors, objectively assessed for quality, then evaluated by wholesale traders. Statistical analysis showed that the objective measurement of colour was significant in pricing, together with foreign matter, moisture content and damaged grain. The study will provide information for processors wishing to raise the quality of their products.
