The potential applications of stabilized quality rice bran in aquacultureUpdate: 3/22/2013
Stabilized rice bran is produced with strict technical rules to maintain and maximize nutritional values of products.
Fresh bran is first grinded, with no impurities and low free fatty acid, and then taken into a heat process and compress to remove factors affecting quality such as lipase enzyme, mold ......
Bran is then oil extracted to bring out stabilized rice bran products with advantages of quality nutritional values: high protein, rich of vitamins and minerals, rich of natural antioxidants, especially storage time up to 6 months, which overcomes the biggest drawback of fresh bran ( get rancid quickly).
Additional carbon source
Using too much food makes up a class of potential toxic mud. Nitrogen rate in ponds is usually high, especially in the end of harvest season, when there is lack of carbon source for bacterials growth.
It is considered a solution for sustainable development. Thus, farmers can use stabilized quality rice bran as a suitable carbon source added in the pond.
