Abstract:

Rice is one of the most important food crops in the world. Grain quality determines consumer acceptance. Various physical and chemical tests exist to assess the quality of rice. A study was conducted to evaluate the physico-chemical properties of ten rice varieties on germination. The physical properties like length, breadth, L/B ratio, 1000 kernel weight, 1000 kernel volume, bulk density, specific gravity and chemical properties like amylose content (AC), alkali spread value (ASV), gel consistency (GC) were studied. Results showed that there was significant difference in length (P≤0.05) but there was no significant difference in breadth and L/B ratio between raw and germinated rice varieties. The mean thousand kernel volume of rice varieties ranged from 13.00 to 32.66 ml. There was significant difference in bulk density and specific gravity (P≤0.01) between raw and germinated rice varieties. All the chemical properties determined in the study significantly differed between raw and germinated rice varieties (P≤0.01).
