ARS researchers studied five color classes of rice bran: white, light brown, brown, red, and purple/black. The team analyzed the phytochemicals and vitamin E concentrations in each class of rice. They discovered that the red and purple rice brans have higher phenolic and flavonoid concentrations than the lighter brans. Vitamin E concentration differed among rice brans but was not associated with bran color.
