Microbial starter called koji in Japanese was made with fungal strain Amylomyces rouxii YTH3 isolated from Thai microbial starter, loog pang. Koji made with A. rouxii YTH3 was applicable for saccharifying agent for ethanol fermentation. Novel alcoholic beverage was made from various cereal grains and this koji, and analyzed. Ethanol concentration, pH and acidity were 8.2 to 10.8% (v/v), 3.5 to 4.4 and 3.0 to 5.2 ml. An alcoholic beverage made from black rice (Oryza sativa var. Japonica cv. Shiun) having anthocyanin showed brilliant red color. An alcoholic beverage made from black rice showed rather a higher antioxidant activity comparing other alcoholic beverage. The DPPH radical scavenging activity of the alcoholic beverage made from black rice was around 1800μM Trolox equivalent, while other alcoholic beverages were 300 to 600 μM Trolox equivalent.
