Rice Bran
0

3 posts in this topic

I need rice bran for a muffin recipe, but can't find it. :unsure: Haven't looked online or at Whole Foods yet. (Whole Foods is not convenient for me to get to.) Any suggestions where to find it?

What does rice bran do in a recipe? Can I substitute something else?

Thank you! :)

Rice bran would add fiber and fat. It has become fashionable as a fat supplement for horse feed - some horses in the winter, or endurance horses, benefit from fat supplements for their hair coats and for energy. (yes, there are also carbohydrate intolerant horses, who end up eating special horse diets.... ) I've seen it for sale at farm stores but a health food store might have it also, and I'm seeing a lot of it online for mail order.

Another "brown, whole grain type" gluten free flour or meal could be substituted, instead of the white, fluffy types like potato starch, but the liquids may have to be adjusted or the baking time changed because each acts differently.

You could try grinding nuts in a blender, for example.

sorry to tell u this- but i got mine at whole foods... i wanna say that "Ener G" company made it (dont know if that's their name)... maybe u could find it online?

im GUESSING that rice bran might give the mix a LITTLE "stick" MAYBE... because some recipes call for Flax Meal and the flax meal gives it a little stick... but again- i am guessing.

if you're making muffins (and NOT cupcakes)... you may be able to get away with it??? idk.
