Hi,

 

I'm currently reviewing raw rice specifications and wanted advice on acceptable raw milled rice micro limits? Or material which would help.

 

We produce: Basmati, Long grain, Jasmine, Parboiled and Brown rice.

 

We currently have a ACC limit of 10,000 CFU/G which I think is a little high given the product. 

 

Thanks

I wouldn't worry about the CFU/g number as much as the coliforms number.

The kill step is the consumer cooking the rice. :shades:

Unless perhaps followed by excessively slow cooling.
