fermentation, germinated brown rice, black rice, GABA
The purpose of this study was to investigate the fermentation process of rice two types (germinated brown rice and KKU URL0381 cultivar black rice) on GABA content and chemical composition (i.e. moisture, protein, fat, ash and crude fiber) of by-product and fermented rice juice. The results indicated that the fermented-germinated brown rice has more protein content than fermented black rice. The fermentation process increased the amount of Gamma-aminobutylic acid (GABA) in germinated brown rice to approximately 4–6 times, whereas, approx. one time in KKU URL0381 cultivar black rice. Results from this study were used for the development production of probiotic supplemental products.
