Effects of milling, germination temperature and time on nutrients, bioactive compounds and pasting properties of FARO 44 brown rice (UBR) were evaluated. Germinated brown rice (GBR) samples were obtained by germinating UBR at 30 and 40 °C for 12 and 36 h. Nutrients, bioactive compounds and pasting properties of the GBR were analyzed and compared to the controls which comprised its counterparts from UBR and non-germinated parboiled milled rice (UMR).
