Milling characteristics of 11 varieties of rice were investigated. Brown rice yield was inversely related to the opening size of slotted perforation sieve and to grain width and/or thickness. Percentage of white broken rice was correlated to the grain length of brown rice. Whiteness of milled rice at the same milling degree could not be used for the measure of the degree of milling, because each variety has its color appearance.
