Produk OryGOLD dilancarkan sempena Ekspo Pertanian dan Pesta Konvokesyen UPM

SERDANG, 12 Okt – Sekumpulan penyelidik Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM) telah menghasilkan produk berasaskan beras perang cambah yang mampu mengurangkan risiko kencing manis, penyakit Alzheimer dan sakit jantung.

Ketua penyelidik, Profersor Dr. Maznah Ismail berkata, penyelidikan di bawah Institut Biosains UPM itu telah dimulakan sejak 2006 melibatkan produk beras perang cambah yang baik untuk kesihatan dikenali sebagai OryGOLD dan minuman kesihatan OryGOLD Drink.

“Beras tersebut mampu mengurangkan masalah Alzheimer serta mencegah penyakit seperti kencing manis dan kolestrol tinggi malah beras ini juga berpotensi sebagai bahan asas kepada penghasilan bahan makanan berasaskan bijirin seperti bubur segera, makanan bertenaga dan emping,”

Germinated Brown Rice And Bioactive Rich Fraction: On Going Journey From R&D To Commercialisation

Germinated brown rice (GBR) is unpolished brown rice that has been allowed to germinate to improve the flavor and texture, and to increase levels of bioactives such as γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA), acylated steryl glucoside (ASG) and ferulates.

GBR has many functional effects, including antidiabetic, cardiovascular diseases (CVD), antioxidant, weight reducing, hypocholesterolemic, antidepressant, cognitive-enhancing, hepatoprotective, immunomodulatory properties, menopause-related problems and Alzheimer’s disease.

GBR may serve as an efficient alternative to white rice, and as an adjuvant for the management of many chronic diseases, especially when consumed on a long term to provide continuous supply of bioactives.

Bioactive-rich fractions claimed that food and not nutrients is the fundamental unit in nutrition. Through synergy of bioactive compounds in food, better nutritive value is derived than what individual nutrients would provide. Lead bioactive compounds in the presence of other metabolites, even in small compound, will produce more beneficial effects.
