Rice is a staple and widely grown crop endowed with rich genetic diversity. As it is difficult to differentiate seeds of various rice varieties based on visual observation accurately, the harvested seeds and subsequent processed products are highly prone to adulteration with look-alike and low quality seeds by the dishonest traders. To protect the interests of importing countries and consumers, several methods have been employed over the last few decades for unambiguous discrimination of cultivars, accurate quantification of the adulterants, and for determination of cultivated geographical area. With recent advances in biotechnology, DNA based techniques evolved rapidly and proved successful over conventional non-DNA based methods to purge the problem of adulteration at commercial level. In the current review, we made an attempt to summarize the existing methods of adulteration detection and quantification in a comprehensive manner by providing Basmati as a case study to enable the traders to arrive at a quick resolution in choosing the apt method to eliminate the adulteration practice in the global rice industry.
