EXPLANATION: Milling degree is one of several inspection criteria used to determine the quality of milled rice. To ensure consistency in the application/characterization of milling degree, a series of
Visual Reference Images (VRI) were established to assist inspectors in differentiating between the various milling degrees referenced in the standards. Milled rice whose appearance does not meet this minimum milling degree requirement is considered “reasonably well milled” or “undermilled”. Consult the
VRI depiction for “reasonably well milled” to determine which of these milling degree descriptions apply.
