    Rice Bran Oil - The World's Healthiest Oil

    Been trying this stuff for several months now and can give it the thumbs up. A bit more expensive than ordinary cooking oil but not as much as olive oil. Also, it does have a bit of a flavour and adds to the taste of any dish.








    The American Heart Association (AHA) recommends the average intake of fat should be 30% of your total caloric intake. This fat intake should consist of balanced fat, which provides nutrients that are essential to sustain life. A Balanced fat intake should contain approximately 30% saturated fat, 33% poly-unsaturated fat, (containing Essential Fatty Acids) and 37% mono-unsaturated fat.


    Olive Oil: High mono fat, able to lower cholesterol but deficient in poly fat, which contains Essential Fatty Acids (EFA). EFA’s are truly essential to life as every metabolic process in your body depends on them. A low smoke point makes it a poor choice for frying, and its heavy taste makes it undesirable in many baked goods. Traditionally a good salad oil.

    Canola Oil: High mono fat with cholesterol lowering ability but there are concerns about the origin. “Canola oil” is a term coined by Canada to change the name of “rapeseed oil”. The rapeseed plant contains erucic acid making it toxic and is used as an industrial lubricant. It has been genetically modified and hybrid to produce a low erucic acid version. Commonly hydrogenated, it is extensively used in the food industry because of its low price. The hybrid plant would be the best choice.

    Peanut Oil: A good balanced oil. This oil has good cholesterol lowering ability and a high smoke point, making it a good frying oil. It imparts a slightly earthy, nutty flavor. It lacks the anti-oxidants and micronutrients of Rice Bran Oil. A small percentage of people are allergic to nut oils.

    Soybean Oil: This oil is a high poly fat. As recommended by the AHA your poly fat intake should be around 33% of your total fat intake. A high poly percentage is, an aid to tumors and cancer and should be carefully watched. Up to 80% of the oil consumed in the U.S.A. today comes from soybeans. Soybean oil is commonly hydrogenated and used in many processed foods.

    Grape Seed Oil: A good frying and salad oil, but again high in poly fat. It does lower cholesterol because of the high unsaturated fat content but is way over the recommended 33% poly-unsaturated fat.





    Rice Bran Oil: The most balanced and versatile oil on the market and closest to the AHA recommendations. Rice bran oil is a superior salad, cooking, and frying oil which leaves no lingering after taste. The high smoke point prevents fatty acid breakdown at high temperatures. Its light viscosity, allows less oil to be absorbed in cooking, reducing overall calories. It mixes better in salad dressings and improves the taste of baked goods, providing cholesterol reduction, nutritional and anti-oxidant value.
    Comparison of natural antioxidants in edible oils
    Naturally Rich in Vitamin E (Tocopherol and Tocotrienol). Both Types of Vitamin E are natural antioxidants that help fight free radicals, a major cause of cancer. Tocotrienol is believed to vastly out perform Tocopherol in fighting free radicals and in preventing oxidation, it also helps lower cholesterol levels in the blood. Tocotrienol is a difficult nutrient to find but is abundant in California Rice Oil Company’s Rice Bran Oil.

    High in Oyzanol. Oryzanol is a powerful antioxidant only found in rice bran oil. It is more active than Vitamin E in fighting free radicals. Oryzanol is effective in lowering cholesterol levels in the blood, reducing liver cholesterol synthesis and treating menopausal disorders.

    Phytosterols (not shown in the antioxidant chart) are nutrients with many health benefits and are more abundant in Rice Bran Oil than any other oil. Scientific research suggest that Phytosterols reduce cholesterol, provide anti-inflammatory effects, inhibit the growth of cancer cells, improve the immune system and have other health benefits. There are 27 different phytosterols in Rice Bran Oil.

    Being globally recognized as the true “Health Oil” California Rice Oil company’s Rice Bran Oil stands in a class by itself because of its surprisingly good performance and health benefits.

    "There is no evidence that too much animal fat and Cholesteral in the diet promotes atherosclerosis or heart attacks". Google myths about "Cholesterol". The only sure way of lowering Cholesterol is with drugs.

    Exactly what I say, We were unable to find peanut oil here in the land of the grinning nut so looked around the stores, and then the web and decided on filling our new deep fryer with Rice Bran Oil and have been a addict for about 5 years now, and it has lowered my wifes colesterol,, I guess because we are addicts.
    Use a filling or 2 a month.

    and except for Leaf Lard For pan frying I will use nothing else.

    Damn been a long time since I saw this thread,,,sorry

    You use kidney fat,,you can buy it in the wet markets here from the pork sellers
    they call it "man payo",, grind it fine or chop it up small and add a cup of water to a heavy pot and heat slowly and render it a long time at a mild heat, when done strain it and it makes the flakiest pie crusts and best biscuits you ever made.
    Teriffic for frying too. has the same nutritional values as butter, and is prefered in some parts of Europe to butter..
