Viscosities of dispersions of raw and various processed rice flours in water were examined with a coaxial cylinder viscometer. Viscosity increased with increasing degree of processing and with a reduced level of apparent starch reassociation in processed rice. Measurement of apparent viscosity of cold slurries could thus be a simple practical test of processed, including parboiled, rice and of the degree of processing. The system showed time-dependent thinning and a typical loop in the shear rate-viscosity curve, showing that it was thixotropic in nature. Viscosities were proportional to hydration power and slurry-sedimentation behaviour of the samples.
