Malnutrition and micro-nutrient deficiency are a major problem in developing countries where rice is the staple diet
This technique uses ultrasound to produce micro cracks on rice grains immersed in a water bath. The rice is then air-dried following which it is soaked in a nutrient solution containing Iron, Folic Acid and Vitamin B12. The process requires low capital expenditure and operating costs and offers a higher rate of nutrient retention than previous systems.
