Note on the Effect of Bran Lipids on Cookie Quality.

Lipids extracted with hexane from the bran of soft red winter or eastern soft white winter wheats increased the cookie-spread potential of test cookies to the same degree as did lipids extracted from flour. In baking tests, addition of bran lipids to the flour as a hexane solution, followed by solvent evaporation, was more effective than adding them as solids to the shortening phase. Because it yields a greater amount of lipids and is less costly than flour, bran is an attractive source of lipids for improving cookie quality.
