Abstract

Natural levels of dimethyl sulfide (DMS) in rough rice and its products (polished rice, brown rice, and broken rice) were determined by a gas chromatograph equipped with a flame photometric detector and sulfur mode, after extraction with 25% KBr solution in a sealed system. DMS was found to occur naturally in nine newly harvested and stored Australian varieties of rough rice and its products and decreased during storage after harvesting. Natural levels of DMS in rough rice and its products varied with variety, fraction, and period of storage. The order of levels of DMS was rough rice = brown rice > polished rice = broken rice. The range of values was 0.002-30 mg kg-1 (ppm, w/w).
