    while Vietnam exported 1.4 million tonnes, Pakistan 1.3 million tonnes and 820,000 tonnes by

    the United States.However, Vietnamese customs data released on Wednesday showed the

    world's No.3 rice exporter shipped 1.55 million tonnes. The country said it expects second-

    quarter exports to top 1.6 million tonnes.

    India's export volume was estimated to have risen 2% in the quarter, while that of Vietnam rose

    by 58% and 4% by the US. Pakistan's export volume dropped 9%.In the first quarter, the five

    biggest buyers of Thai rice were Indonesia (317,100 tonnes, an 877% annual increase), Ivory

    Coast (272,354 tonnes, up 86%), Benin (266,246 tonnes, up 426%), China (257,708 tonnes, up

    86%) and Cameroon (191,846 tonnes, up 251%).In March alone, the country exported 990,864

    tonnes of rice worth 15.2 billion baht, rising 26% by volume and 17% by value year-on-year. In

    the month, exporters delivered white rice to governments in China, Indonesia and the Philippines

    and broken rice to African nations.The association estimated the rice export at 700,000-750,000

    tonnes in April due to the Songkran holidays.Without government-to-government rice deals, rice

    sales in traditional markets did not increase much because the purchasing power of African

    countries remains low, the association said.

    UK Promotion a Big Success for U.S. Rice

    By Eszter Somogyi

    LONDON, UK -- Earlier this month, U.S. rice brand Peacock Easy Cook Rice, from S&B Herba Foods,

    was featured at a Trade Day promotion conducted at Wanis, one of the UK's largest international foods

    wholesalers that caters to the country's growing Afro-Caribbean market. Trade Day is a special event at

    the store where hundreds of customers have the opportunity to sample the many new and different

    products being promoted.Trade Day shoppers lined up to try a range of dishes featuring Peacock Easy

    Cook Rice prepared on-site by Chef Gayle Love. Gayle's flamboyant personality and enthusiasm proved

    to be the perfect combination to demonstrate the compatibility of U.S. rice with Afro-Caribbean cooking

    styles.

    "Chef Gayle cooked a number of different dishes featuring Peacock Easy Cook Rice and everyone was

    impressed at how well our rice worked with that cuisine," said S&B Herba Foods Sales Director Peter

    Walker. "Chef Gayle was a big hit and really brought the Trade Day to life.""This year's Wanis Trade

    Day was so successful we had to re-order stock to cover the orders taken," Walker said. "We had orders

    for over 50MT making it one of the most successful promotions we've had."

    Should You Be Eating Black Rice? By Virginia Pelley

    Theres a new superfood in town: black rice, aka forbidden rice." Now even Walmart carries the stuff, which first made a spash in 2010 when a studysuggested that it packs as many antioxidants

    as blueberries. But is it worth the hype?

    To find an answer, youll need to compare it to other grains, starting with brown rice: Black has a nutrition profile thats very similar to brown rice, says nutritionist Jessica Cording. They both provide fiber and some iron, but black rice has more vitamin E in it, which is an important

    fat-soluble vitamin. (Meaning you need to pair it with a source of fat like avocados or olive oil in order for your body to absorb it.)

    Antioxidant vitamin E helps prevent cell damage in the body, protects eyesight, and boosts the

    immune system, some research suggests. In addition, a study on mice suggests black rice might

    have anti-inflammatory benefits, and it has a similar fiber content but fewer calories than brown

    rice, roughly 160 per serving compared to a little over 200 in brown, Cording says.But where

    black rice really stands out is its anthocyanin content. In case you didnt know, thats one of the most powerful types of antioxidants, that may play a role in promoting good health.

    The bran hull of black rice contains one of the highest levels of anthocyanin, found in food, says Wesley Delbridge, a nutritionist and spokesman for the Academy of Nutrition and

    Dietetics. This pigment is the same stuff that gives blueberries its color and black rice its rich,

    deep hue. What sets it apart from brown rice is this high concentration of anthocyanin pigments, which are fantastic antioxidants. Not everyone agrees what it does and how it does it. These compounds are also the possible mechanism behind black rices apparent ability to reduce cholesterol levels, according to a 2013 studypublished in Food & Function.

    Black rice, along with red and purple rice, have significantly more antioxidants than white rice and have been shown to improve cholesterol profiles, says nutritionist Julieanna Hever, author of The Vegiterranean Diet. However, these studies have been done in a lab and havent yet been tested in humans.Experts say that even in terms of antioxidants, many of those compounds work differently in the body, so its best to get a wide variety, as it is for food in general.Overall, black rice, like brown, has a higher fiber content than white rice, which means it is digested

    slower and adds more soluble fiber to the diet, which can lower cholesterol, Delbridge says. It has a little more protein and iron than brown rice.

    It's worth noting that like brown rice, black rice will have higher arsenic levels than white if

    they're grown in contaminated soils. To be safe, be sure to cook it with a higher water-to-rice

    ratio (arsenic is water soluble) and avoid rice grown in Arkansas, Texas, Louisiana, and China.

    Fresh vegetables and delicious meat cooked to juicy tenderness already sounds like a great deal,

    and there are some places willing to let you use those wonderful ingredients to create your own

    perfect dish.One such restaurant is Shawarma Co. in the Forest Village shopping center near the

    junction of Carolina Forest Boulevard and River Oaks Drive.Mediterranean-based and relatively

    young, this eatery has been working hard to provide quality food in a flexible manner while also

    hoping to encourage healthy eating. For the people who love this cuisine, healthy eating really

    doesnt seem bad at all.Shawarma Co. does offer specialties for guests to choose from, such as lamb shish kabob, combination platters, and a vegetarian plate. Each meal comes with basmati

    rice, a house salad, pita bread, and an additional side to select, so there is more than enough food

    to enjoy.

    However, those who prefer Mediterranean food a certain way will find its easy to create a dish all their own. There are four steps in this process, starting with a base either pita, basmati rice, or a salad bowl.Next, guests can pick what kind of protein theyd like, such as chicken, beef, or falafel. Then there is a selection of fresh toppings, including the restaurants homemade tzatziki sauce. Finally, customers decide on a side to go with the unique meal, like stuffed grape leaves

    or cucumber salad.

    There are a few more sides that cost extra, but if youre a fan of hummus or spanakopita then be sure to at least review the options. Homemade sweets like baklava and rice pudding are available

    if there is someone who still has some room to satisfy their sweet tooth.The shawarma carved off

    the slab is delightfully tender, as is the lamb shank that falls of the bone as advertised. Just like

    most of their food, the falafel and stuffed grape leaves are made in house and with all the flavor

    one would expect.Even some of the drinks are freshly made, such as their lemonade and Turkish

    coffee. The coffee comes the size of an espresso shot but the finely ground beans are simmered

    with sugar which keeps this little glass of energy from being too bitter.Shawarma Co. is a

    diligent and productive restaurant doing its best to provide healthy and fresh food for its

    clientele, no matter if they are dining in, utilizing the drive-thru, or having their meals delivered.

    These dedicated and friendly workers also provide catering services for any type of

    event.Mediterranean cuisine is a combination of food from different countries that all have

    deliciousness in common. Shawarma Co. adds to this already amazing culture fantastic service,

    fresh ingredients, and the chance for customers to craft a meal to suit their tastes, all-in-all

    Soaring youth appetite triples demand for rice

    By Kirera Mwiti

    Date: April 29, 2016

    The countrys rice production has tripled in the last seven years and outstripped demand thanks to increased consumption by the youth. Despite the rise in production, which stands at close to 150,000

    metric tonnes annually, the country is yet to meet its demand of an estimated 540,000 metric tonnes

    annually.According to the Agriculture ministry Principal secretary Dr Richard Lesiyampe, rice production

    rose from 50,000 metric tonnes in 2008 to 149,661 tonnes last year. He, however, said free market

    policies had allowed the flooding of cheap rice imports in the market to the detriment of local

    farmers.The government is committed to increasing rice production to reduce pressure on maize which is the countrys staple food, he said.

    This was contained in a speech read on his behalf by Kenya Agricultural and Livestock Research

    Organisation (Kalro) deputy director Felister Makini during the national rice stakeholders forum held in Naivasha today.During the function, the revised national rice development strategy was launched.

    Lesiyampe said the government through the National Irrigation Board (NIB) is committed to reviving

    collapsed irrigation schemes. The PS praised the Nerica rice variety because of high stress tolerance and

    produced exemplary yields with minimal irrigation.Currently, there are 260.8 metric tonnes of Nerica variety and 520 metirc tonnes of irrigated varieties with Kenya Seed Company and NIB respectively, he said. Lesiyampe said inadequate irrigation infrastructure, low mechanisation, inadequate skills and low

    access to market are some of the challenges facing the sub-sector.

    Despite the challenges experienced by farmers, the rice sub-sector is on a dynamic growth path courtesy of the many interventions by the government, he said. On his part, Kazuhiro Tambara from Japan International Co-operation Agency (JICA) said the country has the potential to produce more rice and

    avoid importation.We are currently supporting the country in efficient ways of cultivation, research and improvement of infrastructure in rice growing regions, he said. Coalition for African Rice Development (Card) general coordinator Takanori Satoyama called for more involvement of private sector in rice

    growing.He said that the coalition, which was working in 23 countries including Kenya is committed to

    doubling rice production between 2008 and 2018. Kenya has high potential of rice production mainly in Mwea and Ahero areas but what is lacking is technological support, he said. http://www.mediamaxnetwork.co.ke/people-daily/217111/soaring-youth-appetite-triples-demand-for-rice/

    Rice Comment Rice ended the week on a positive note, but did not challenge the highs set earlier in the week. May failed

    at the 62% retracement objective of $11.16 on Tuesday. Weekly exports were only 31,700 metric tons

    this week, down from 121,300 metric tons last week. The market will be watching crop progress closely.

    If farmers plant what they reported to USDA in the survey, the large crop will limit the upside potential.

    Currently, USDA says 62% of the crop in the ground and 38% emerged. In Arkansas, the totals are 75%

    planted and 40% emerged, so Arkansas farmers made lots of progress in a weeks time.

    Chinese know-how contributes to better rice in

    Namibia

    WINDHOEK, (Xinhua) -- The only national rice research center in Namibia was facing

    challenges but a team of Chinese experts has brought them solutions they needed.The Kalimbeza

    Rice Research and Production Station, in the northeast, had wanted to improve the quality of rice

    in the country but was constrained by a lack of equipment and know-how.The situation has

    drastically changed since the Chinese agricultural experts came here in April, 2015 to conduct a

    two-year know-how transfer program, said farm manager of Kalimbeza rice project, Patrick

    Kompeli.The Chinese have assisted workers at the project in some areas where we lacked

    knowledge and experience, and so far four counterparts have benefited from this program, of

    which they will later impart their acquired knowledge onto other Namibians, Kompeli said.

    In the past, all field operations in the center were done manually, such as transplanting,

    harvesting and sorting of rice.The government first addressed the lack of equipment shortly

    before the experts arrived.The government managed to acquire some machinery such as rice

    combine harvester, rice processing machine, rice trans-planters, Kompeli said.Then it turned to

    the Chinese experts to address the expertise problems.The experts have shared knowledge with

    us, on how to prepare the rice nursery, how to treat seeds with chlorine to control diseases, and

    how seeds are pre-germinated before being sowed in the seedling trays, as well as how to prepare

    the seedlings for mechanical transplanting, Kompeli said.He further said the experts had

    imparted their knowledge on how to level the paddy with the wooden pole to distribute water

    equally in the field and how to prepare land for seed broadcast, which is vital in rice

    production.With the equipment and the Chinese expertise, rice production in the center has

    soured from four hectares in 2007 to 70 hectares in 2015.The Kalimbeza Rice has become

    popular and is being sold commercially across the country.
