Rice Bran

Recommended Posts

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! :)


Self diagnosed gluten intolerant, gluten free since 12/09.

Diagnosed with fibromyalgia about 15 years ago. Fibro symptoms have improved but not gone away with gluten free living.

Osteoarthritis, mostly in hands and neck and lumbar spine. Not sure if going gluten-free has helped that problem, but it certainly can't hurt. (Am very grateful that so far no sign of the RA that is devastating my mother lately.)

Considering a dairy free trial. Considering.

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.
