Rice bran oil is popular in Asian cuisine, mostly, because of its suitability for high-temperature cooking methods such as deep-frying and stir-frying. It is extracted from the germ and inner husk of rice.
Rice bran oil has a heavy edge over the apparently healthier Olive oil. Rice bran oil also contains components of vitamin E that may benefit health.
A study showed that rice bran oil may be useful for cholesterol control.
It has also been concluded from the same study that Rice Bran Oil can help in reducing the risk of cancer by a noticeably significant percentage.
For household use, it doesn’t measure up to olive oil in terms of monounsaturated fat. Its higher smoke point would make it more suitable for high temperature cooking, which is recommended.
