The EnRiCh Project

The EnRiCh project is focusing on designing healthier and nutritious rice by improving dietary fibre content (dietary fibre and resistant starch) and lowering glycemic index (GI). Using the existence of intraspecific variation of GI and also trying to fill in the gaps in understanding of genetic basis of lowering GI. Part of the project is to explore the consumers attributes to improved rice.
