Hi. I enquired about a product that had rice bran extract listed as an ingredient. Below is the response I got. I was wondering if this basically means alcohol? Thanks.

You must be seriously bored to firstly read the ingredients list on the box of a fibre flakes and secondly to write to the company.

Nah, I'm just mindful of alcohol. And I read ingredients list on everything I consume.

Doesn’t look like alcohol is mentioned to me.

I think what they elaborated on (fermentation process) means alcohol in layman's terms. But I'm not sure.
Below are some definitions of fermentation. They range from informal, general usages to more scientific definitions.

Preservation methods for food via microorganisms (general use).
Any process that produces alcoholic beverages or acidic dairy products (general use).
Any large-scale microbial process occurring with or without air (common definition used in industry).
Any energy-releasing metabolic process that takes place only under anaerobic conditions (becoming more scientific).
Any metabolic process that releases energy from a sugar or other organic molecule, does not require oxygen or an electron transport system, and uses an organic molecule as the final electron acceptor (most scientific).

In their response they say "the liquid produced from this (fermentation) process is then pasteurised and spray dried to form the rice bran extract powder."
This means that any liquid present, including any alcohol, is evaporated off, leaving just a dry bran powder behind, so there can't be any alcohol left in it (and there may not have been to start with).
