Re: An Interesting Perspective on Fiber and Gut Flora

 Thanks, last batch of questions here...

Does it make a difference if rice bran/oat bran is taken with meals or away from meals?

With food would be best.  Although I like eating the rice bran as a snack.  It has a nutty flavor.

What sort of daily dosage will keep your flora thriving?

A tablespoon with meals would be fine.

Should rice bran/oat bran be taken separately from supplements?

That would be hard to do since most supplements are also taken with food.  But the phytic acid in the bran is not really an issue since it would have to give up the minerals it is already bound to in order to take anything from the body.  So the phytic acid is not the big, bad anti-nutrient  some people claim it is unless it is isolated and purified.  Even then phytic acid has a higher affinity for dangerous free iron and heavy metals than it does beneficial minerals.
