This article has reviewed 54 articles comparing refined and whole grain rice and categorized into production cost, bioactive compound, and pesticide/residue contamination as well as consumer perception. The result shown that milling processing as one of value chain contributes the significant impact on nutritional properties of rice. If the organic rice using the conventional “milling processing principle” it will resulted the equal feature of nutritional properties both organic rice and conventional, thus expectation of consumer for healthier properties of organic rice may not be suitable anymore.Keywords- Organic food system, milling processing, organic rice, whole grain
