  • National Priority: RIC-Optimised genetic improvement


This research will investigate the effect of industrial-scale thermal processing on the starch digestibility of Australian medium and long grain rice varieties. The total starch, resistant starch and in vitro starch digestibility of processed samples will be measured. Textural, cooking and physicochemical properties of the samples will also determined by DSC, RVA and NMR spectroscopy measurements.
