Rapid visco-analyzer (RVA) and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) were used to study the effect of rice bran dietary fiber extract on gelatinization and retrogradation of wheat flour. The addition of rice bran dietary fiber extracts from various heat treated bran into wheat flour caused to increase the pasting temperature, peak viscosity and final viscosity of RVA measurements. For gelatinization measured with DSC, mixtures of wheat flour and rice bran dietary fiber extract had slightly higher To (onset temperature) and Tp (peak temperature) values than those of control (wheat flour), and wheat flour/defatted rice bran dietary fiber extract mixture had the lowest enthalpy value. In comparison with gelatinization, the retrogradation endotherm of mixtures stored at $4^{\circ}C$ up to 4 weeks occurred at about $20^{\circ}C$ lower temperatures than gelatinization endotherm with broader shape and well-defined thermograms with storage time. The retrogradation of wheat flour was retarded greatly by addition of rice bran dietary fiber extract, and there was no big difference between 5% and 10% additions.
