Principles and processes of rice chalkiness quantification. a Principles and processes of rice chalkiness quantification in traditional methods. Chalkiness analysis includes glume removing and milling, following by naked-eye observing and then the area-based chalky rice rate calculation. The chalkiness degree was evaluated by the projected area rate between chalkiness area and milled rice area in an image processing software. b Principles of X-ray ray scanning by micro-CT system. SkyScan 1172 Micro-CT was employed to scan living rice seeds or milled rice. c Principles of chalkiness separation/segmentation. Chalkiness part was separated according to the grayscale degree. After 3D reconstruction, the cubic parameters were analyzed
