Buhler food technology
The Buhler Technology Group awarded the renowned European food technology
innovation award for a process that revolutionizes rice processing.
Buhler AG, headquartered in Uzwil, Switzerland, was presented the European
FoodTec Award in Gold in early April. The European FoodTec Award is the
most renowned innovation award in the field of European food technology.
It distinguishes innovative concepts in the food processing industry that
have been successfully put into practice. Buhler received the coveted
award for a process which on the one hand minimizes losses during rice
processing and on the other hand restores the nutrients to the milled
rice that it originally contained.

High-vitamin rice from the extruder
The traditional rice whitening and polishing process, which transforms
paddy (rough rice) into white rice, is associated with losses of component
substances. When rice is used as a staple food, this may give rise to
nutritional deficiencies. To correct this situation, the specialists from
Buhler have developed a cooking extrusion process enabling material obtained
during rice milling to be transformed into a product resembling natural
rice in terms of visual appearance and contents – so-called reconstituted
rice. Appropriate product formulation and process design allow products
to be made with a defined composition and tailormade features in terms
of color, shape, and texture. As the ingredients added in this process
are encapsulated in the granular rice product, they possess above-average
process and storage stability. This feature can be utilized, for example,
in the production of functional foods. A special focus is set on the production
of reconstituted rice that is enriched with vitamins and minerals. It
can be added to white rice in the desired proportions in order to ensure
an adequate supply of nutrients in countries where rice is a staple (especially
developing and emerging economies).

Innovation leader of the industry
“This innovation ranks the company among the innovation leaders
of its industry,” said Carl-Albrecht Bartmer, the President of the
German Society of Agriculture (Deutsche Landwirtschafts-Gesellschaft,
DLG e.V.), during the award presentation ceremony. “This distinction
is not only a reward for an outstanding technological development, but
also an encouragement for companies honored to continue their research
efforts.” The award was presented during the Anuga FoodTec, the
international trade show for food and beverage technology held in Cologne.
It is sponsored by DLG e.V. together with various trade journals.
