The • calcuring' process as a method of fortification of rice with calcium has been found to be uneconomical. Among other possible methods of fortification, spraying the rice with calcium acetate solution in the presence of sodium or ferric phosphate solution increases the retention of calcium to about 45 per cent. Further steam treatment of the above samples increases the retention to about 70 per cent. A calcium-rich preparation containing 34 per cent calcium could be prepared from a mixture of calcium carbonate (85 per cent) and wheat flour (15 per cent) and mixed with the rice. Eighty per cent of the calcium thus added was retained in the cooked rice.
