The Therapeutic Properties of Coloured Rice-derived Polyphenols

Global obesity rates are of epidemic proportion. With limited treatments available there is a large demand for therapeutic alternatives. Polyphenols derived from coloured rice varieties may serve as a potential functional food alternative in combating obesity and obesity-related diseases. This project will investigate if polyphenols derived from coloured rice can alleviate oxidative stress and inflammation in biological invitro, exvivo and invitro models of obesity.
