Physical Properties on Waxy Black Rice and Waxy Rice

찰흑미와 일반찰벼의 물리적 특성

  • Published : 2002.04.01


This study was comparised physical properties of waxy black rice and waxy rice. In case of physical properties of kernels, weight, length, length/width ratio and volume of waxy black rice were higher than those of waxy rice but width and density were very similar. Moisture gain of kernels of waxy black rices was increased continuously to 40 min. at various soaking temperatures ($20{\sim}50^{\circ}C$) and the water uptake rate constants ($k_0$) of waxy black rices during storage at $20{\sim}50^{\circ}C$ were also increased. The water uptake rate constant ($k_0$) of waxy rice ($0.058\;min^{-1/2}$) was the more fast than that of waxy black rice ($0.033\;min^{-1/2}$) during storage at $4^{\circ}C$. Also hardness reduced rate constant($-k_0$) of waxy rice ($0.048\;min^{-1}$) were the more fast than that of waxy black rice ($0.022\;min^{-1}$) about two times.
