This is the gross paddy outlet produced during brown rice processing. It is rich in fiber and silicone and is used as a source of energy to stove and feed families. In poultry farms, it is often used as a litter.
The rice husk, also called rice hull, is the coating on a seed or grain of rice. It is formed from hard materials, including silica and lignin, to protect the seed during the growing season. Each kg of milled white rice results in roughly 0.28 kg of rice husk as a by-product of rice production during milling.
