Thais develop instant rice products
BANGKOK, Jan 23 (TNA) - Thai researchers are using innovative technologies to add value to Thai rice by making it more healthful and easier to cook quickly.

Two rice product development projects entitled "O-Rice" and "Instant Rice" -- conducted by the Federation of Thai Industries (FTI) with financial and technological support by the National Innovation Agency (NIA) -- are pilot projects paving the way for the launch of a new "One Province one Agricultural Product" scheme, aimed at developing Thai agricultural products throughout the country, said NIA Director Supachai Lorlohakarn.

The new product called "O-Rice", produced by Phetchabun Innovation Co. Ltd., is a result of a new technology using a process called "orisination" to help rice absorb and retain all the nutritional value in the grain, making the rice more healthful than general white rice since it contains all nutrient vitamins.

The "instant rice" produced by Asian Superior Foods Co Ltd. in Thailand's central Ratchaburi province can be cooked in just three-five minutes, as quickly as instant noodles. The technology used to develop the new instant rice was invented by Kasetsat University researchers.

Also, two other new products have been the focus of a quality upgrade by innovative technologies are "bai miang" or 'rice wrapper' and Japanese-style "Udon" noodles.

The new value-added rice products are an attempt to upgrade Thai rice in terms of price and quality and to strengthen Thailand's bargaining power as the world's biggest rice-exporting country, according to Mr. Supachai.

He said the development of new rice products with new technology will lead to similar developments regarding other agricultural products and will be expanded throughout the country to fulfil the "One Province One Agricultural Product" plan.
