Broken rice is used in a large variety of products across multiple industries. There are two basic classifications used for broken rice, Second-heads and Brewers. Second-heads are defined as measuring from ½ to ¾ the length of whole kernel rice. They are the highest quality of the two types and as a result carry the highest value. They are primarily used in making rice flour and as a fermentation agent for alcoholic beverages, such as beer. Brewers are defined as measuring less than ½ the length of a whole kernel. They are most commonly used for making pet food in multiple forms. The hypo-allergenic properties and neutral taste of rice make them an excellent ingredient to use as a source of carbohydrates to compliment the other ingredients used in these products. Both Second-heads and Brewers contain the same nutritional properties as whole kernel rice, whether milled or brown.
