Rice bran and germ are the polishings that are removed when brown rice is milled into white rice. Rice has been cultivated in Asia for over 7000 years and has been a traditional food source for many cultures around the world. In milling the rice and removing the hull and the bran, leaving only the white kernel, the best nutrition is thrown away. Although the bran and germ only take up 8% of the kernel, they contain 65% of the nutritional value. A low glycemic, nutrient dense superfood, Rice Bran and Germ contains vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids and amino acids. There are over 110 known antioxidants in this amazing superfood, giving it an ORAC value of 5,740 per ¼ cup 28 gram serving. The ORAC value is a measurement of the antioxidant capacity of different foods. A unique mechanical stabilization process has been used to deactivate the lipase in the Rice Bran and Germ in order to ensure optimal stability of the delicate compounds and antioxidants. Natural Traditions Rice Bran and Germ has a delicious, naturally sweet and nutty taste that can be added to everything you eat.
