Manufacturing Process of Basmati Rice

Basmati rice suppliers India bring you the premium quality grains that are characteristically longer compared to other forms of rice. This rice variety has a unique aroma due to the presence of a chemical compound called 2-acetyl-1-pyrroline. While this chemical compound is found in various types of rice varieties, organic white and organic brown basmati rice comprises about 12 times of this compound than any other rice type. The basmati rice manufacturers prepare rice quite similar to other rice varieties. However, there are certain differences in the manufacturing process.

Let us have a look at the complete Basmati Rice manufacturing process:


In this stage, ripe rice plants are around 3 months when they’re ready to harvest. The rice fields are harvested either by hands or machines – depending on the field size and the operation process. The brown basmati rice can be obtained just after harvested, after undergoing only cleaning and hulling processes.


Basmati Rice contains around 20% moisture content during the time of harvesting. The moisture content needs to be removed for further processing. Therefore, the harvested rice is completely dried out with the help of artificially heated air or just by a simple air drying method in the sunshine. But the latter method is quite time-consuming.


It is a process where rice is dried out and rolled on within the hulling machines. With the help of the rolling action, the hull from the rice is removed easily. The hulled grains are further separated from the unhulled grains using shaking kernels technique. The unhulled grains are heavier than the hulled grains, so it is easier to separate them.


Brown rice is quite prone to spoiling, so that’s why it is often converted into white rice. Milling process includes two stages of hulling. In the first stage, the bran layer is removed from the hulled rice. And, in the next stage, the rice is further polished to make it appear whiter and shiner.


The polished rice loses all essential nutrients and vitamins when undergoing different processes. But these are further replenished with some necessary nutrients and vitamin, making them more suitable for consumption. After the final processing, the rice is packed into batches and further supplied to basmati rice distributors to transport them all across the country or other parts of the world.

Export of basmati rice from India to other countries has seen a major rise in recent years, due to the huge demand for basmati. While white basmati is loved by many people around the globe, brown basmati rice has become famous due to its higher nutritional values. No matter which type of rice variety you prefer, you need to store them in a dry place in an airtight container for longer shelf life.
