brown rice Brown rice is not a rice variety. It is just a rough rice (palay) without the hull, with the bran (darak) and germ intact. It does not undergo polishing and whitening during the milling process. Brown rice is sometimes called unpolished rice.

Eliminating polishing and whitening on rice milling can save 50-65% on fuel. It can also result to 10% increase in milling recovery. For example, a 10 kg regularly milled paddy rice will produce a 6.5 kg of polished rice. However, the same amount of paddy will produce 7.5 kg when milled into brown or unpolished rice.
