Brown rice was milled to (i) very low, (ii) low and (iii) medium degree of milling (corresponding to 2, 3 and 5% degree of milling resp.) and the tocopherol content was studied in 4 var. of paddy. The % oil removed from brown rice was 11-19 in (i) 27-31 in (ii) and 43-49 in (iii). The total tocopherol content ranged from 3000 to 5000 mug/100 g of brown rice. Tocopherol constituted about 1/3 of total tocopherols. Varietal difference was also found in total and alpha-tocopherol contents and it increased with the increase in the degree of milling. The germ accounted for greater than 95% of the total tocopherols and nearly 1/3 of the oil content of the rice grain.
