Lipid content and fatty acid composition of non-glutinous Korean brown rice were evaluted using (a) 15 japonica type cultivars and (b) 14 indica-japonica hybrid cultivars. Lipid content (percentage DW, tabulated) ranges were (a) 2.2-2.79 and (b) 2.10-2.77. Oleic:linoleic acid ratios (tabulated) ranges were (a) 1.07-1.40 and (b) 1.24-1.60. Linoleic acid was dominant in (a) at 34.98% and oleic acid was dominant in (b) at 43.79%.
