What are Rice Husks?

So, what are rice husks? Also commonly referred to as rice hulls, they’re the outer protective layers of a rice grain that are removed during the rice milling process to reveal the edible inner grain. Rice husks are often thrown away once the grain has been milled, but they can also serve a wide variety of purposes around a farm.
