Issued by National Bureau of Standards of the People's Republic of China
(Standardization Administration of the People’s Repuli of China SAC at present)


This standard applies to inspection of commercial rice, yellow-colored rice and
cracked brown rice.

China.
The standards drafted by the Department of Commerce Bureau of Grain Storage and

The main drafters are Xiuwu Gao, Haoran Yang, Yanxia Wu, Guifen Lv.

1. Inspection of yellow-colored rice in paddy
1.1 Apparatus and Tools
1.1.1 Scale: accurate to 0.01 g;
1.1.2 Laboratory rice polisher;
1.1.3 Analytical scale, tweezers, etc.
1.2 Procedure
After husked rice yield of grain is detected, mill the husked rice in a laboratory rice
polisher into Grade 2 rice with its processed degree similar to the indicator
requirement specified in relevant standard. Weigh (W) the husked rice as test sample
after removing the husk powder. Sort out the yellow-colored rice according to
relevant requirement and weigh (W
1
).
1.3 Calculation of Result
Calculate the percentage of yellow-colored rice in paddy according to formula (1) :
yellow−coloured rice % =
1

× ……………………
Where:
 W
1
is the weight of the yellow-colored rice, in the unit of gram.
 W is the weight of the sample, in the unit of gram.

The acceptable difference of two testing results is no more than 0.3%. Average two
results as the final inspection result. The figure of the final result is rounded to the
first decimal place.


2 Inspection of yellow-colored rice in rice
2.1 Procedure
Weigh 50 g rice as test sample or sort out the yellow-colored rice during inspection
of broken rice, weigh as W
1。
2.2 Calculation and Result
Calculate the percentage of yellow-colored rice in rice according to formula (2):
yellow−coloured rice % =
1

× ……………………

Where:
 W1 is the weight of the yellow-colored rice, in the unit of gram.
 W is the weight of the sample, in the unit of gram.
The acceptable difference of two testing results is no more than 0.3%. Average two
results as the final inspection result. The figure of the final result is rounded to the
first decimal place.

3 Inspection of cracked kernels
Husked rice with crack named cracked kernel or crackle rice.
Procedure: After husked rice yield of grain is detected, sort out 100 rice kernels
randomly, pick out rice with crack with magnifier. Calculate the percentage of cracked
kernels based on the number of rice with crack in 100 rice kernels identified.
