Pretreatment to increase yield and antioxidant activity of γ-oryzanol in rice bran oil


Duangkamol˙Ruen-Ngama,*, Chitti˙Thawaia, Sujitra˙Sukonthamutb

 
ABSTRACT:     Six pretreatment processes to extract oil from Khao Dok Mali 105 rice bran were tested to assess the effect of the processes on the γ-oryzanol content and DPPH scavenging activity of the extract. The pretreatment processes consisted of the following: microwave heating (60–110˙°C), hot air heating (70–180˙°C), roasting (60–80˙°C), parboiling (70˙°C), autoclaving (121˙°C), and enzyme (amylase) treatment (50˙°C). The highest amount of oil was obtained by hot air heating (70˙°C) of 0.27˙g/g of dried rice bran, whereas the highest γ-oryzanol yield was obtained by parboiling 9.8˙mg/g of dried rice bran. The highest γ-oryzanol concentration obtained with a roasting pretreatment (60˙°C) was 46.9˙mg/ml of rice bran oil.
