Rice bran supplementation modulates environmental enteric dysfunction markers and serum metabolites in weaning Nicaraguan infants
Rice bran (RB) is an agricultural byproduct from whole grain rice processing. It is an accessible, underutilized food ingredient that merits global health research attention to improve nutritional security, reduce childhood malnutrition, and mitigate environmental enteric dysfunction (EED). The objective was to analyze the effects of dietary RB supplementation on growth, EED biomarkers, and serum metabolites in healthy, weaning infants from six-to-twelve months old residing in León, Nicaragua.
