Parboiled Rice Hulls | RMBA


RMBA Rice Hulls, or rice husks, are the outer sheath of rice seeds. They are separated from the seed, steamed (parboiled), and dried  to ensure there is no viable seed or contaminants; rice hulls are a natural waste product of milling rice seed into usable grain. Rice hulls for gardening support soil structure, aiding in drainage and aeration, as well as providing habitat and nutrition for soil microbes. Rice is naturally high in bio-available silica, so RMBA Parboiled Rice Hulls make a great addition to composting programs to boost the silica content of the finished product.
