Components of rice bran oil have been assessed for their effect on refining losses. Rice bran oil used in the study had the following (percent) analysis: free fatty acids, 6.8; phosphatides, 1.25; wax, 2.85; monoglycerides, 1.67; diglycerides, 4.84, and oryzanol, 1.85; the rest (80.74) was mostly triglycerides. The phosphatides and mono- and diglycerides had no noticeable effect on refining losses at levels of up to 2% in the oil. Waxes and oryzanol increased the refining losses substantially… CONTINUE READING
