The traditional rice processing leads to loss of nutrional elements in the rice. Rice and rice by-products can be used to produce novel foods with additional value by extrusion cooking. For this process, mainly broken rice and rice bran are being used. Process for making reconstituted rice grains, comprising cooking a mixture of rice flour, water and hydrogenated oil in a cooker-extruder, to produce a partly gelatinized mixture, forming the partly gelatinized mixture into rice-grain shaped pieces and drying and cooling the pieces to room temperature to provide the reconstituted rice grains. Some nutrition factors can be nozzled in this process to make it enriched rice.
