To investigate physicochemical and cooking properties of parboiled rice, choochung paddy processed to parboiled rice by three methods (PL, PT, PA) milled and examined hydration, cooking qualities and firming rate of cooked parboiled rice. The results were obtained as follows. The longer the steaming time during parboiling the larger EMC of soaked parboiled rice. Water uptake rate constants (k) of all the parboiled rice during soaking except for PT rice were generally increased than those of raw rice. The longer the steaming time during parboiling the greater volume increase rate constants ( $k_{v}$) of parboiled rice samples. The glelatinization temperature of parboiled rice flour by DSC was more increased than that of raw rice flour. Gelatinized entalpy was decreased and gelatinization content (%SG: degree of starch gelatinization) was increased by parboiling process. In cooking tests, parboiled rices were harder than raw rice and softness (reciprocal of hardness) was greater PT30, PA, PL30 in turns the cooking time of the parboiled rice took longer 3-10 min than that of raw rice, PL30 took longer time than anyother rices. Cooking water of parboiled rices could be observed lighter turbidities than that of raw rice. Firming rate constants of cooked rice during storage 24 hours were generally decreased by parboiling-processing. The time constants, reciprocal of firming constants of cooked PL30 rice were 2 times slower than those of cooked raw rice.e.
