Rice Bran Facts
Among all the super foods available today, some are quite well known such as acai and spirulina, but others are lesser known even though they offer remarkable nutritional density.
One of these "little known" super foods is rice bran solubles -- it's a super delicious and highly nutritious super food that delivers a powerhouse of health supporting nutrients. But to understand why it's so nutritious, you have to first check out the structure of a grain of rice.
A grain of rice has four parts: First, there is the white/brown rice contained within the rice hull. Second, there's the rice hull, the outer container or skin known as the energy compartment which is made mostly of carbohydrates. This is what gives the rice seed its calories to grow into a plant. Third, there is the rice bran, the inner container of the rice seed which contains all the natural mineral and nutrients which causes the rice to grow and flourish. Then there's the rice germ. This contains the miniature plant embryo which sprouts a tiny plant when the seed germinates and it is included in the rice bran when rice is processed.
The rice bran is the real nutritional powerhouse of the rice grain —the bran contains proteins, minerals, vitamins and healthy plant-based fats. This is the "nutritional storehouse" of the rice grain, providing the most important nutrients the sprouting rice plant needs to power its immune system, root system, circulatory system and other important plant metabolic functions.
The Rice Bran Issue
However, there is a natural enzyme called lipase in the rice bran that causes the oil to become rancid. When the rice is growing, the lipase and the oil are isolated from each other, in separate types of cells. However, as soon as any mechanical processing occurs - such as when the rice is hulled or when the bran is removed from the kernel in the process of "polishing" white rice - the cell walls are ruptured and lipase meets rice bran oil. From there it only takes a few hours for the fragile components of the oil to become oxidized and rancid.
The problem with rice is that the brown part (the bran) contains oil which is very prone to rancidity, occurring within a few hours. The stabilization process deactivates lipase, the enzyme found in rice bran that causes the fat to spoil and stops this rancidity from happening.
Stabilized Rice Bran
Through NutraCea's technological innovation that first surfaced in the late 1990's, we were able to stabilize rice bran, giving it a long shelf life while maintaining its powerful nutrients. This gave rise to a new super food called "stabilized rice bran."
NutraCea holds many patents and a proprietary process that no other competing rice bran manufacturers have. This simply means that in order to get the highest quality rice bran, make sure it is from NutraCea (the original manufacturers of stabilized rice bran).
NutraCea's patented stabilization process and proprietary technology enables rice bran to be made into a various number of natural health products for you.
Rice Bran Has Been Wasted
- Rice is a staple food for approximately 70 percent of the world's population
- Over 600 million tons of rice is harvested annually on a global basis
- Much of the nutritional value lies in the bran and germ, which has traditionally been discarded during milling processes
- Its bran —all 60 million metric tons of it— is either thrown away or used for low-level animal feed each year
- NutraCea knows all about rice bran and believes that the benefits of stabilized rice bran, being rich in vital nutrients & antioxidants were too hard to ignore.
Of all the brans available on the market today, only rice bran contains all the essential amino acids your body requires for total health!
