Rice Bran Oil

June 22, 2018 by Food

Rice bran oil is a product from Thailand.

We decided to use rice bran oil for our frying because of its health benefits, less greasy composition, and lack of flavour. The viscosity of this oil ensures that the food absorbs only about 20% of the oil. When less oil is absorbed, the food still retains the flavour, and gets the health benefits of the rice bran oil, but the total caloric intake is less than other vegetable oils.

It makes for great fish and chips and it leaves the food dry and not too oily, or greasy.

It is a clear odourless oil, with very little flavour. Therefore it is excellent for allowing the true taste of the food to be thoroughly enjoyed .

It is great for using as a salad dressing , for frying, and for roasting. It has a very high top temperature. It’s smoking point is  around 230 degrees. Hence great chips fish and even roast potatoes!

It has the ability to help to lower cholesterol, boost the immune system, prevent cancer, improve skin health, promote weight loss, relieve menopausal symptoms, protect heart health and even lower allergic reactions.

Crazy I know! All those benefits! 

Research has been conducted on a extract of rice bran oil, in terms of how it affects menopausal women.  More than 90% of the women who took the supplement reported a reduction in hot flushes, and other irritation symptoms of menopause that all women suffer from.

It is also a rich source of antioxidants, and vitamin E.

The world health organization and american heart association have both stated that rice bran oil has the best possible composition of mono unsaturated, polyunsaturated, and saturated fats compared to all other vegetable oils. The balance of fatty acids means that the cholesterol levels in your body can actually be reduced because the beneficial forms of cholesterol actually inhibit the “bad” forms of cholesterol from bonding.

Up until now, it is unavailable to buy in France,  but in England it is in all the shops and easy to find to buy.

We sell the small 500ml bottles  for our customers to buy if they would like to use for cooking at home.ice bran oil
