According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Parboiled and White Rice Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2023-2028,” the global parboiled and white rice market size reached 497.6 Million Tons in 2022. Parboiled rice undergoes a unique pre-cooking process called parboiling, wherein the rice is soaked, steamed, and then dried before the outer husk is removed. It is commonly used in various cooked dishes, such as biryani, pilaf, and fried rice, wherein individual grains and a firmer texture are required. It maintains its shape and texture when cooked longer, making it easier to achieve the desired doneness. It gelatinizes the starches in the rice, making it easier to digest. Additionally, it reduces the risk of discomfort and bloating in individuals with sensitive stomachs or digestive issues. On the other hand, white rice is a commonly consumed staple food characterized by its neutral flavor, soft texture, and shorter cooking time compared to other rice varieties. It exhibits a longer shelf life, which makes it convenient for storage and consumption. It is easily digestible for individuals with sensitive stomachs due to the removal of the bran and germ during processing. Parboiled and white rice is extensively used in soups, stews, and casseroles, adding texture and bulk to the dish.
