The first group were given 10g soluble rice bran twice daily (morning and before sleeping) and the second group took placebos. Blood glucose and plasma lipids levels were measured before and after the study. Data were analyzed using t-test and t SPSS and Food processor software. Results: Fasting serum glucose levels reduced significantly from 177± 69 mg/dL to 142±42 mg/dL (P<0.001). Triglyceride levles reduced and HDL levels increased significantly (P<0.001) and (P<0.01). LDL and chlesterol also reduced, though not significantly. Conclusion: While rice bran had a significant reducing effect on blood glucose and triglyceride levels it increased HDL levels.
