The article presents a scientific review of rice bran arabinoxylan compound (RBAC), a health-promoting product with profound immunological effects. The study reviews animal and human research work which suggests that RBAC reduces the toxicity of certain chemotherapeutic agents. Studies also show that RBAC sensitizes cancer cells making them more receptive to the therapeutic effect of the agents. The article reveals that RBAC also protects normal healthy cells against the potentially damaging and toxic effects of chemotherapy.

    A two-step method was developed for the preparation of food-grade wax. The first step involved the solvent-defatting of crude wax, which gave a dark brown, dry, powdered wax with a m.p. of 75-79°C. The major impurity in the defatted wax was the dark brown resinous matter. In the second step,...

    Rice bran with FFA levels above 0.1% cannot be used as a food ingredient due to oxidative off-flavor formation. However, extracting high FFA oil from bran by in situ methanolic esterification of rice bran oil to produce methyl ester biodiesel produces greater yields relative to low-FFA rice bran...
