Bran is the hard outer layer of grain and can be milled from any cereal grain, including rice. Bran is particularly rich in dietary fiber and omegas, and contains significant quanitities of starch, protein, vitamins and dietary minerals.
Rice bran is a by-product of rice milling and it’s known to contain antioxidants.
