What is a Paddy Parboiling Plant and Why You Need One


A paddy parboiling plant is a specialized facility designed for the processing of raw paddy into parboiled rice. This plant utilizes a series of carefully controlled processes to enhance the nutritional value, taste, and texture of rice while also improving its shelf life. The parboiling process involves soaking, steaming, and drying of paddy before milling. In this article, we will tell you what a paddy parboiling plant is and why you need one.

Benefits of Paddy Parboiling Plant

A paddy parboiling plant can bring you many benefits, such as:

  • Higher nutritional value: Parboiling of paddy moves micro nutrients contained in the bran, which is usually removed in the whitening process in the rice mill, to the endosperm. Parboiled rice is therefore more nutritious than white rice.
  • Better cooking quality: Parboiling of paddy causes a gelatinization of the starch during the boiling and during cooling the amylose molecules re-associate with each other and form a tightly packed structure. The kernels are harder and appear glassier after the parboiling process. Parboiled rice takes less time to cook and is firmer and less sticky when cooked.
  • Higher milling yield: Parboiling of paddy mends little cracks that might have developed in the endosperm during post-harvest processing and therefore head rice recoveries of parboiled rice are higher. Parboiled rice also has less breakage and chalkiness than white rice.
  • Longer shelf life: Parboiling of paddy reduces the moisture content and microbial load of the grains, making them more resistant to insect infestation and fungal growth. Parboiled rice can be stored for longer periods without deterioration.

How to Set Up a Plant

If you want to set up a paddy parboiling plant, you need to consider some factors, such as:

  • Capacity: The capacity of the plant refers to how much paddy it can process per hour or per day. The higher the capacity, the higher the investment and operating costs. You need to choose the capacity according to your production needs and demand.
  • Technology: The technology of the plant refers to what methods and equipment it uses for parboiling. There are different types of parboiling technologies, such as batch type, continuous type, pressure type, vacuum type, etc. You need to choose the technology according to your quality standards and preferences.
  • Supplier: The supplier of the plant refers to who manufactures and sells it. The different suppliers may have different prices and services for their products. You need to choose the supplier according to their reputation, experience, warranty, etc.

A paddy parboiling plant is a great facility that can improve your rice quality and profitability. However, you need to set up a suitable one for your needs. By following these factors, you can set up a paddy parboiling plant that meets your expectations.
