Rice is one of the leading cereals that sustains humankind. Whole grain rice is markedly higher in many nutritional components compared to polished rice due to inclusion of the bran. In rice, bran can possess several pigmentation classes, including white, light brown, red, and purple. Bett-Garber and colleagues studied the impact of bran color and amylose content on sensory characteristics of ten rice varieties. Red and purple rice was higher in phenols and flavonoids, which correlated strongly with flavor. Sweet taste was negatively correlated with amylose content. These results advance our understanding of the physical-chemical basis of rice grain quality.
