According to the April 1, 2008 article by Laura Crowley, “Rice bran offers health benefits over wheat flour,” if you buy stabilized rice bran (SRB), it’s healthier than using wheat flour. Stabilized rice bran cuts fats, calories, salt content, according to the latest studies. Also, some people don’t want gluten in their grain products.

Also, according to a November 3, 2009 press release, Vegetarianism Gets a Voice on Progressive Radio Network, “Because of this, they often tie the hands of media outlets when it comes to speaking out against the negatives that accompany each cheap combo meal they push. Now there is a radio program that is not afraid to discuss such issues, and more. The Progressive Radio Network (PRN) has given the vegetarian movement a voice, by offering a weekly show all about vegetarianism.”
According to the media release, Vegetarianism Gets a Voice on Progressive Radio Network, “Vegetarianism is a forward-thinking idea, and a lot of media outlets cannot even talk about it because they are afraid they will offend their advertisers,” explains Gary Null, an award-winning talk show host, notable author and the founder of PRN. “At PRN, we proudly give vegetarianism a voice because we know that people are starving for this information and a chance to talk about the issues.”
The show, called “It’s All About Food,” airs each Wednesday at 3:00 p.m. EST and can be accessed online at www.progressiveradionetwork.com. Hosted by Caryn Hartglass, who is the executive director of EarthSave International, the show is all about vegetarianism and covers a wide range of vegetarian issues, including raw foods, overall wellness, healthy school lunches, factory farming, global warming, and dairy-free desserts.
The show also interviews special vegetarian-related guests, including such previous guests as Allison Rivers Samson of Allison’s Gourmet, and Ruby Roth of the new children’s book “That’s Why We Don’t Eat Animals” (North Atlantic Books, May 2009).
Hartglass, who has worked in different ways over the years to promote a plant-based diet, has been a vegetarian for over 35 years. She first became a vegetarian as a child because she found it unnecessary to be a part of such a cruel industry. Today, she takes her mission of promoting vegetarianism to the air waves, where no related topic is off limits.
PRN also offers shows that cover natural living, the environment, autism, cultural affairs, women’s health, mindful living, the economy, animals and pets, and progressive politics. Because they are supported by listeners, they are not limited in their speech when it comes to controversial topics.
“When you take a look at the store shelves in grocery stores around the country, it is clear that vegetarianism is here to stay,” adds Null. “Whether people choose vegetarian meals out of compassion for the animals, for a cleaner planet, or for their own health, our show can provide a platform for discussing it, without having to worry about companies pulling their advertisements.” Listeners can listen to PRN and find a list of all shows, hosts, and events on the site.

One study was conducted by American independent research firm Ingredient Technologies and sponsored by NutraCea, a manufacturer and distributor of products and food ingredients made from rice bran through its proprietary technology. Basically, the results of the study noted that stabilized rice bran “can play a significant role in the reduction of fat in battered and fried foods.” Rice bran also provides a reduction in cost to manufacturers. But if you’re eating rice bran for health purposes, don’t heat it. Just pour a spoonful into your smoothie or on your cereal or other food.
The study presents the benefits of the ingredient amid growing demands for healthy products as well as for cost-cutting initiatives on the back of climbing commodity costs.
According to the article, “Rice bran offers health benefits over wheat flour,” in the new study, researchers replaced 20 percent of the wheat flour used in a batter preparation with standardized rice bran, resulting in a finished product that contained 32 per cent less fat, 26 per cent fewer calories and 5 per cent lower sodium.
Researchers noted that the results indicated that the replacement of wheat flour with standardized rice bran did not effect on the color, taste or texture of the finished product. For specific foods, using standardized rice bran in place of some of the wheat flour meant an 11 per cent lower production cost.
If you’re buying rice bran, do your research with comparative reviews of different types of rice bran to make sure what you’re buying is standardized. Some types of rice bran are higher in arsenic than others. So you know what to avoid. See the article by Lorraine Heller, 26-Aug-2008, “Rice bran contains high arsenic levels, study.” A 2008 study found that rice bran contains high levels of arsenic.
Should you be using it? The findings revealed that rice bran and rice bran solubles contain inorganic arsenic levels of around 1mg/kg dry weight, which is around 10-20 times the concentration found in bulk grain. Maybe you should use the whole grain, such as soaked and cooked brown rice.
The findings revealed that rice bran and rice bran solubles contain inorganic arsenic levels of around 1mg/kg dry weight, which is around 10-20 times the concentration found in bulk grain, according to that article.
Currently, China is the only country to have modern levels of how much arsenic is permitted in food, and has set the limit at 0.15mg of inorganic arsenic per kg of food. The US and EU have no standards for arsenic levels in food, but the US has a 0.01mg/liter limit in drinking water.
According to the recent findings, none of the rice bran samples tested would pass the more stringent and modern Chinese limits, and only two out of the nine samples would pass the 50 year-old UK standards. The tests were conducted on four bran solubles, one defatted bran, one riceo-ex and three bran products.
Here, in the USA, what about the various brands of rice bran? The tests were conducted on four bran solubles, one defatted bran, one riceo-ex and three bran products.
Out of the bran solubles, two years ago, the 2008 testing and study found the highest inorganic arsenic level of 0.86mg/kg in a sample from Holistic Enterprises, Santa Ana, USA. A sample from NutraCea, USA was found to contain 0.82mg/kg. A sample from Pure Planet Products, Long Beach, CA, USA, contained 0.71mg/kg and one from Integris, RiSO Triene, USA, contained 0.61mg/kg.
The rice bran products tested were from: General Dietary, UK & Eire; The Barry Farm, Ohio, USA; and Tsuno Rice Fine Chemicals Co, Japan. They contained levels of 0.48, 0.64 and 1.65mg/kg respectively. The defatted bran and the riceo-ex products were again sourced from Japan’s Tsuno Rice, and contained 1.16 and 1.88mg/kg respectively, according to the article, “Rice bran contains high arsenic levels, study.” Of course, the industry has fought back. See the article by Lorraine Heller, published on Sept. 2, 2008, “NutraCea bites back at rice bran arsenic claims.”
In response to an inquiry from NutraIngredients-USA.com, NutraCea took issue with the methodologies employed for the study, and re-iterated its position that “there is no credible scientific evidence linking consumption of rice products with cancer or any health risk.”
How would you like to eat your brown rice? And what can you do about rice bran put in processed food products to cut manufacturing costs? Remember that the problem isn’t rice. It’s the use of rice products that actually have high levels of arsenic. That’s why novel products need to be tested for safety.
NutraCea emphasized in the 2008 article that its rice products are tested regularly for heavy metal content and have consistently met the requirements of its customers. As a consumer, you want to know whether products comply with regulatory requirements around the world and to make sure any type of company provides safe, nutritious products to customers.
So every time you get a study with any given results, any given industry being studied, whatever that industry might be, usually will assure customers of the safety of its products. That’s why you need to look at both sides, the research and the company’s assurances for its customers that are its bread and butter so to speak.
That’s a company’s goal, to make sure there’s a market for its products. What can you do as a consumer? Look at all the research and make up your own mind. In the meantime, you might enjoy Sacramento’s radio show, the Wide World of Health, with many guests talking about health. Your job is to do your research and look beyond marketing to what studies are telling you about any health product or whole foods health benefits.
