Rice Bran Oil

Oil

Characteristics:

Rice bran oil is the oil extracted from the germ and inner husk of rice. It is an excellent source of gamma oryzanol with antioxidant properties and has a high content of Vitamin E, which contributes to defend body cells from oxidation. Rice bran oil is rich in monosaturated fatty acids which, if the standard nutrition guidelines are respected, help control cholesterol level.

It is notable for its smoke point making it suitable for high-temperature cooking methods such as stir frying and deep frying. Its pale straw yellow hues do not affect the golden colour of your fried food.

Serving suggestions

Rice bran oil has a particularly delicate taste and fragrance which makes it ideal to use for frying, sautéing, baking and grilling.
