Rice bran is an important source of nutrients that have many good bioactive compounds. This study examined the extraction of bran rice oil using supercritical carbon dioxide. Free fatty acids contained in bran rice were stabilized at 5.25% for 8 months by fluid bed dryer equipment. Supercritical carbon dioxide extraction of rice bran oil at pressure of 400 bar, temperature of 60 oC, CO2 flow rate of 20 g/min for 120 minutes yielded 14.84% oil. The concentration of γ-oryzanol in rice bran oil extracted by supercritical carbon dioxide (0.50%) was higher than in rice bran oil derived from hexane Soxhlet extraction (0.42%). The effect of pressure and temperature on extraction yield and the concentration of γ-oryzanol contained in rice bran oil was observed.
