Rice Bran

Rice Bran

Rice (Oryza sativa) is native to China and India. Today, it is cultivated widely in wet areas in the tropics and subtopics. Rice bran come from the outer hull of the rice. It contains fiber, lipids, amino acids, and a variety of vitamins and minerals. Most of the the fiber in rice bran is insoluble. It also contains inositol and IP-6. Rice bran contains a high percentage of oil compared to other brans. Rice bran oil is considered responsible for the pharmological activities of rice bran even though the whole rice bran can be used. Rice bran has antihypercholesterolemic properties. The oil contains beta-sitosterol and other phytosterols that are used to reduce cholesterol absorption. It also contains alpha-linolenic acid, which might increase the concentration of fatty acids such as eicosapentaenoic and docosahexaenoic acid.

Rice bran also contains lipase; the oil has gamma oryzanol and tocotrienols. Rice bran is used for weight loss, strengthening the immune system, increasing energy, aiding liver function, and as an antioxidant. Diets high in fiber have resulted in lower insulin levels, less weight gain, and a reduction in cardiovascular risk factors such as hypertension.
