China is a big country in the production and consumption of rice in the world. However, for a long time, China's rice processing is only in the primary processing state that meets people's demand for rations, and the level of comprehensive utilization of deep processing and its by-products is low. This paper reviews the main raw and by-products of rice, such as rice protein, rice starch and by-products of rice processing (including broken rice, rice bran and rice husk), aiming to further improve the comprehensive utilization of rice resources and increase the added value of rice and its by-products to create more economic and social benefits. The vigorously developing and promoting the deep processing technology of rice and its by-products will extend the rice industry chain and greatly increasing the added value of rice, make full use of resources to supplement the shortage of high-quality edible oil, protein, starch and other products.
