|Abstract:||© 2016 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved. Since the nutrition value of rice is diminished during rice processing, technology that can preserve and sustain functional compounds is necessary. In this study, supercritical carbon dioxide (SC-CO2) extraction was optimized for operational conditions (time, temperature, pressure and modifier) to extract Vitamin E, γ-oryzanols and xanthophylls from rice bran. The simultaneous quantification of the compounds was developed using high-performance liquid chromatography with diode array and fluorescence detectors. Central composite design and respond surface methodology were applied to achieve optimum extraction conditions. The optimized conditions were 60 min, 43 °C, 5420 psi with 10% ethanol as a modifier. Pigmented rice bran extracts contained greater amounts of functional phytochemicals than non-pigmented rice bran extracts (0.68, 1410, and non-detectable μg/g compared with 16.65, 2480, and 0.10 μg/g of Vitamin E, γ-oryzanols and xanthophylls in pigmented and non-pigmented ones, respectively). SC-CO2extraction with modifier would be promising for preparation of phytochemical essences for therapeutic purpose.|
