ABSTRACT Rice bran contains high amounts of beneficial antioxidants including tocopherols, tocotrienols, and oryzanols. Current rice milling technology produces rice bran from different layers of the kernel caryopsis. Under current practices, these layers are combined and then steam-extruded to form a stabilized rice bran pellet that is storage-safe prior to oil extraction. Each of these rice bran intermediates can vary in antioxidant content. The objective of this study was to investigate the…

Bioactive Phytochemicals in Rice Bran: Processing and Functional Properties.

Rice bran is a by-product of rice milling industry and constitutes around 10% of the total weight of rough rice. It is primarily composed of aleurone, pericarp, subaleurone layer and germ. Rice bran

Antioxidant Properties of Milled-Rice Co-Products and Their Effects on Lipid Oxidation in Ground Beef

Antioxidant properties were analyzed for methanolic extracts of rice seeds, milled-rice co-products, and other selected plant seeds, including cottonseed, soybean, and corn. Values of antioxidant

Influence of Kernel Maturity, Milling Degree, and Milling Quality on Rice Bran Phytochemical Concentrations

ABSTRACT Rice bran is a rich source of phytochemicals including tocopherols (T), tocotrienols (T3), and γ-oryzanol that have purported positive effects on human health. The screening of germplasm to

Studies on Rice Bran and its benefits-A Review

Rice bran, a by-product of rice milling industry is rich in micronutrients like oryzanols, tocopherols, tocotrienols, phytosterols and dietary fibers. The high nutritional profile of rice bran has


Antioxidant properties of rice bran oil from different rice bran varieties; Rice Bran-Bario (RB-Bario), Rice bran-Lowland (RB-Low) and Rice Bran- Upland rice (RB-Up), collected from different

Effect of Drying Technique and Rice Variety to the Content of Antioxidant, Fiber, and Nutrient Composition of Rice Bran

Rice bran is a natural healthy food, as a source of antioxidants, and dietary fiber. The nutrient components of rice bran is depending upon the rice variety that influence the chemical composition of

Nutritional Composition and Stabilization of Local Variety Rice Bran BRRI-28

Rice bran is a valuable by-product of the rice milling industry, a good natural source of many vital nutrients but has some limitations in food application. It is highly susceptible to rancidity



Cholesterol-Lowering Effects of Rice Bran and Rice Bran Oil Fractions in Hypercholesterolemic Hamsters

Cereal Chem. 69(5):485-489 The effects of temperature of extraction and fractionation of rice bran significantly lower plasma and liver cholesterol and triglycerides were oil were evaluated alone or

Rice bran: Composition and potential food uses

Abstract Qualitative and quantitative aspects of proteins, carbohydrates, lipids, vitamins, minerals, and antinutritional factors in rice bran and its subfractions are described. The nutritional

Comparison of isopropanol and hexane for extraction of vitamin E and oryzanols from stabilized rice bran

The effects of solvent-to-bran ratio (2∶1 and 3∶1, w/w), extraction temperature (40 and 60°C), and time (5, 10, 15, 20, and 30 min) were studied for hexane and isopropanol extraction. Increasing the

Identification and quantitation of γ-oryzanol components and simultaneous assessment of tocols in rice bran oil

A reverse-phase high-performance liquid chromatography method was developed for the simultaneous separation and quantitation of tocopherols, tocotrienols and oryzanols present in rice bran oil.

Separation of vitamin E and γ-oryzanols from rice bran by normal-phase chromatography

Five commercial silicas [Nova-Pak, μPorasil (Waters, Milford, MA), Kromasil (Eka Nobel, Bohus, Sweden) Spherisorb (Sigma, St. Louis, MO) and Select-KP (Biotage, Charlottesville, VA)] were tested for

Quantitative analysis of fatty acids and sterols in Malagasy rice bran oils

The fatty acid and sterol compositions of six Malagasy rice bran oils were evaluated. Investigation by gas liquid chromatography (GLC) using Carbowax 20 M revealed 10 fatty acids, mainly palmitic

Oryzanol decreases cholesterol absorption and aortic fatty streaks in hamsters

It is concluded that a constituent of the nonsaponifiable lipids of R BO, oryzanol, is at least partially responsible for the cholesterol-lowering action of RBO and was associated with significant reductions in aortic fatty streak formation.

Lowering of serum cholesterol in hypercholesterolemic humans by tocotrienols (palmvitee).

Serum cholesterol concentrations of seven hypercholesterolemic subjects (greater than 7.84 mmol/L) decreased 31% during a 4-wk period in which they were given 200 mg gamma-tocotrienol/d, indicating that gamma-ptyrienol may be the most potent cholesterol inhibitor in palmvitee capsules.

Antitumor and Antioxidant Activity of Tocotrienols

In in vitro studies, α-, γ- and δ-tocotrienols were found to possess direct cytotoxicity on various mammalian cells, and the IC50 values were 4–135 μg/ml when the cells were exposed to these agents for 72 hours.

Tocotrienols inhibit the growth of human breast cancer cells irrespective of estrogen receptor status

It is shown that tocotrienols do not act via an estrogen receptor-mediated pathway and must therefore act differently from estrogen antagonists, and can exert direct inhibitory effects on the growth of breast cancer cells.
