Production of edible rice bran oil as a means of reducing the shortage of edible oils in India is discussed. Good reasons for utilizing rice bran in this way are: large quantity of rice bran is available; rice bran oil is a high quality edible oil; it has good keeping qualities; has been reported in the literature as having advantageous effects in respect of blood cholesterol; and the extracted bran is nutritionally better than raw bran and could therefore be used in cattlefeeds. It is suggested that huller rice mills should be banned as they produce bran unsuitable for edible oil production and that the government should impose restrictions on the moisture content of parboiled bran so that it can be properly utilized and be free from aflatoxins. Rice bran should either be heat treated or used within 24 h of milling to limit the action of lipases which give undesirable high free fatty acid levels in the edible oil produced.
