These studies were conducted at Oilseeds Research Institute, AARI, Faisalabad during 2004-05. Rice bran was taken from the Pattoki Rice Mills, Jaranwala and was stabilized to inactivate lipase activity. The oil was extracted through solvent extraction. The extracted oil was subjected to refining process. Different physico-chemical parameters were characterized. The refractive index, peroxide value, iodine value, and free fatty acid value were recorded as 1.4792, 0.92 meq/kg, 105 cgI2/g, and 0.07 percent ( as oleic acid), respectively. The fatty acid profile showed palmitic acid (16.74%), stearic acid (1.9%), oleic acid (42.79%), linoleic acid (34.65%) and linolenic acid (0.19%) as major fatty acids.
