From the article of Rodel M. Bulatao et al. (2016), p. 135–141.

Grains of Ominio (background), a traditional pigmented rice cultivar from the Philippines, and bran of traditional rice cultivars: Chor-chor-os (left), Dikdik (upper middle), Kalinayan (lower middle), and Ominio (right), with their high phytochemical content and antioxidant activity, may be a significant source of dietary nutrients and natural antioxidants that can be used as ingredient for rice-bran based foods and pharmaceutical products with therapeutic property.
