Abstract: ABSTRACT. Drying and milling of the paddy are known as the most important process influencing the rice grain breakage. Therefore in this study, influence of tempering period and the reduced atmospheric pressure (vacuum) on the crack formation of two rice varieties (Nemat and Pajouhesh) during the tempering stage is presented. Four different level of drying temperature (40, 50, 60 and 70°C) were used in this study. After drying, paddies have been transferred to a vacuum chamber ranging from 0.4 at to 1 atm (am…
