Antimicrobial potential of the citrus peel extract is directly concerned with the components that they have. The studies showed that essential oils, protopine and corydaline alkaloids, lactons, polyacetylene, acyclic sesquiterpenes, hypericin and pseudohypericin compounds effective on different bacteria. (Keles et al., 2001).
Current rice drying uses a lot of drying passes by eliminating small amount of moisture (2% - 3%) in each pass by placing the rice to low heated air temperature up to 54°C for 15 to 20 min to minimize the moisture gradient during drying process. (Kunze and Calderwood, 1985).
The research results have shown that rice dried with high air temperature (60°C) can eliminate a huge amount of moisture in single pass without reducing the head rice yield. (Cnossen et al., 2000; Cnossen et al., 2003).
Knudson (1924) mentioned that during the process of flaring the mineral content is converted to metallic oxides which also possess individual
