BACKGROUND: γ -Oryzanol from rice bran has lately gained potential importance because of its proven health benefits. Thus the extractability of γ -oryzanol from the soapstock of crude rice bran oil is important from the perspective of future large-scale production, which would give value addition to this by-product obtained from the rice bran oil industry. The aim of the present study was to investigate the extraction of γ -oryzanol from the drum-dried soapstock of rice bran oil using various solvents. RESULTS: Itwasfoundthat γ -oryzanol couldbe extractedmost effectively usingethyl acetate, followedbydichloromethaneand ethyl methyl ketone. All components of γ -oryzanol have an alcohol group in the ferulate portion giving rise to relatively high polarity, thereby increasing the extraction in more polar solvents efficiently. Ethyl acetate showed maximum extractability of γ -oryzanol by the Soxhletmethod. To quantify γ -oryzanol, reverse phase high-performance liquid chromatography (RP-HPLC) was used for fingerprinting the γ -oryzanol analogues with respect to standard γ -oryzanol. CONCLUSION: A new RP-HPLC method for determining the individual components of γ -oryzanol has been reported that can be used for performing an online characterisation of γ -oryzanol analogues by liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry.
