Milled rice

After the rice is grown and harvested from rice paddies, it undergoes a process to prepare it for human consumption, known as milling. Milling removes the rice husk and bran layers, and the end product is the rice that can be found in your local grocery store or supermarket. The total volume of milled rice produced worldwide reached 495.9 million metric tons in the 2018/2019 crop year.

The top rice consuming countries are China, India, and Indonesia in that order. In 2018/2019, China’s rice consumption amounted to 143.79 million metric tons. The per capita consumption of rice worldwide has remained remarkably stable since the year 2000, and amounted to about 53.9 kilograms per year in 2018/2019.
