Rice is one of the most important food crops around the world and feeds over half of the global population. Hence, the study of rice productivity is vital to assuring an adequate food supply for all. In this book, the authors present topical research in the study of the production, consumption and health benefits of rice. Topics discussed in this compilation include the pharmacology and toxicology of rice bran and its potential efficacy in reducing cardiovascular disease; arsenic in rice and its health emergency in South and South-East Asia; the quality of rice as affected by paddy drying and kernel storage; plant architecture in rice and grasses and its relevance to crop improvement; rice allelopathy as an environmentally friendly weed control strategy; rice bran as a byproduct for the production of bioactive compounds and nutraceuticals and rice flour as a prospective gluten-free cereal-based food product.
