Nutritional Benefits of Rice Bran (Darak)
« on: June 22, 2010, 08:44:40 PM »
Rice bran is considered to be a "super food." Not only does it contain high amounts of fiber, vitamins and minerals, but it also contains antioxidants that might improve your health when eaten regularly. Mixed into cereals or baked goods or blended into smoothies, rice bran is a way to add more nutrition to your diet without adding too many calories
An ounce of rice bran contains 88 calories. It isn't a low-fat food, even though it is a healthy food. A 1-oz. serving of rice bran contains 6 g of fat, or 9 percent of the recommended daily allowance, including 1 g of saturated fat . It contains 14 g of carbohydrates, with 6 g of fiber---or nearly one-quarter of the recommended daily allowance---and 4 g of protein. Rice bran is also a good source of iron, vitamin B6, potassium, thiamine, niacin, manganese and phosphorus

Raw vs. Cooked
Rice bran retains its nutrients best when it's eaten raw rather than cooked, and it is more nutrient-dense when it's cooked briefly than when it's cooked for a long time. This is also why rice bran rather than rice itself has a higher nutritional profile. Though rice bran is present in brown rice, eating the rice won't give you the full health benefits of the bran because the long cooking time necessary to making brown rice digestible destroys many of the nutrients present in raw rice bran.
