Milling by-products

The main by-products of rice are rice husk or hull, rice bran, and brewer’s rice.

  • Rice husks or hullsare generated during the first stage of rice milling, when rough rice or paddy rice is husked.
  • Rice bran is generated when brown rice moves through the whiteners and polishers. When paddy is hand-pounded or milled in a one-pass Engleberg steel huller, rice bran is not produced separately but mixed with rice hulls.
  • Brewer’s rice is separated produced when milled rice is sifted.
