FRK Manufacturing Process

Updated: Jan 1, 2022

Base Technology - Extrusion Technology

Major Steps - Milling, Mixing, Extrusion, Drying, Cooling.


In extrusion technology, milled rice is pulverized and mixed with a premix containing vitamins and minerals. Fortified rice kernels (FRK) are produced from this mixture using an extruder machine. The kernels resemble rice grains. FRK is added to non-fortified rice in ratio ranging from 1:50 to 1: 200 (ideal being 1:100) resulting in fortified rice nearly identical to traditional rice in aroma, taste, and texture. It is then distributed for regular consumption.
