This discovery is a novel method to treat rice bran and enhance its quality as it exits the rice mill. By treating rice bran at this stage, the flavor loss and nutritional quality degradation associated with rice bran processing are minimized. The process specifically protects the essential fatty acids and several types of vitamin E, including tocopherols and tocotrienols, in any extracted rice bran oil, which can be further processed into supplements and pharmaceuticals.
