Food Valley, Jasmine rice, Northeast Thailand, Nutritional value, Tung Samrit area


The nutrition values of jasmine rice, i.e., Khao Dowk Mali (KDM) 105, from the Tung Samrit area covering 14 districts of Nakhon Ratchasima province of Thailand, were analyzed during the production seasons in 2015 and 2016. The analyzed values involved moisture, carbohydrate, protein, fat, energy, ash, vitamin E, vitamin B1, niacin B3, iron, zinc, and 2-acetyl-1-pyrroline (2-AP) contents. One of the values, 2-AP, a major aroma compound, showed significantly higher the other kinds of rice (2.71±0.05 (mg/100 g)). The comparison to the literature suggests that the rice product from the Tung Samrit area is up to the national standard. In addition to the use in the documentation for the geographical indication (GI) registration, the collaborated plans and policy were derived with the participation of farmers, dealers, and government agencies to promote sustainable “Tung Samrit jasmine rice”.


  • Estimation of nutrition values of jasmine rice collected from the Tung Samrit area covering
  • 14 districts of Nakhon Ratchasima province of Thailand
  • Highly accumulation of 2-AP in Tung Samrit jasmine rice
  • Tung Samrit jasmine rice is promote to Thailand geographical indication
