What is Rice Bran Oil?

Rice bran oil is an increasingly popular vegetable oil that offers many advantages over standard vegetable oils that millions of people commonly cook with all over the world. [1] Rice is one of the most widely available and popular foodstuffs on the planet, and rice bran oil is extracted from the germ and the husk of rice kernels. [2]

It has a very high smoke point, which is why it is commonly used in high-temperature cooking methods, such as stir-frying and deep frying. In terms of similarity to other vegetable oils, it has a similar composition to that of peanut oil and is healthier than many oils.

Rice bran oil is most commonly used in Asian cultures, including Japan and China, primarily because rice is already a staple food in their cuisines. However, rice bran oil is becoming increasingly popular in other parts of the world because of its relatively low price point and the many health benefits that come from using it in food preparation. [3]

It is most widely praised for its content of vitamin E, ideal fatty acid balance, antioxidant capacity, and cholesterol-lowering abilities. Let’s look a bit closer at some of the health benefits that you can get from rice bran oil.

 

 

sunburn . Vitamin E also helps boost the protective quality of skin cells, keeping foreign toxins and pathogens from entering through the skin.

 

 

 

 

Rice Bran Oil

A fairly new kid on the block and a fast rising favourite amongst the manufacturers, rice bran oil is made from the outer layer (bran) of the grain of rice. Health experts claim that it's the healthiest oil on the planet. While I cannot vouch for that, I do know that while trying it out on my food show series, called Guilt Free, the taste did not clash with Indian food and it worked pretty well in cookies and cakes.

Apparently, rice bran oil has a chemical called oryzanol which is good for your cholesterol. It is high in monounsaturated fats and has a fair amount of polyunsaturated fats too, both the good type of fats. Since it has a high smoking point, it works well for deep frying chips and all.

10 Health Benefits of Rice Bran Oil

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A good cooking oil doesn't just add life to the most common foods, but also plays a pivotal role in your health. It could affect your cholesterol levels, alter your metabolic syndrome and if you're using the right kind of oil, it could also reduce inflammation. That's what makes it all the more important to pick the right one.

In the last few years, ghee (clarified butter) and refined oil have earned a bad reputation due to the cholesterol and heart disease scare. For such health reasons, people have become more open to experiment with new types of oil. On such variety that has slowly been creeping up on health charts is Rice Bran Oil.

According to Dr. Ritika Samaddar, Chief Dietician at Max Healthcare, "Rice bran oil is a relatively new entrant in the category of cooking oils and perhaps the healthiest. This is for a number of reasons: for one, it's got an ideal balance of polyunsaturated fats (PUFA) and monounsaturated fats (MUFA). To be precise, rice bran oil has 37 percent polyunsaturated fats and 45 percent monounsaturated fats, almost a 1:1 ratio. Your usual cooking oils are all rich in polyunsaturated fats and are now looking to create an ideal balance of polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats. In fact Saffola has recently launched a new product which claims to contain a unique balance of polyunsaturated fats and monounsaturated fats making it healthier than the rest."

She added, "Rice bran oil is made from bran which makes it rich in Vitamin E that is essentially an antioxidant. What's also interesting is that rice bran oil is relatively cheap and more of it can be produced right here in India."

Different oils have different compositions of fats and they behave differently when heated. So before you hop onto the bandwagon, it is very important to know your oil.

1. The outer layer of the rice grain is called bran and the oil is extracted from this brown husk. It has a mild flavour and is neutral in taste. The taste does not clash with Indian food and you can even use it in cookies and cakes. It may lend a mild nutty flavor. It can be used for sautéing, grilling, marinades and is great in salad dressings. It's light and quite versatile.

2. The National Institute of Nutrition and The Indian Council of Medical Research recommend oils that have an equal proportion of saturated fatty acids, monounsaturated fats and polyunsaturated fats. Rice bran oil has an almost balanced fatty acid composition that is close to this ratio. Rice bran oil is rich in monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats and free of trans-fats.

3. It is known as the heart-friendly oil. "Rice bran might help lower cholesterol because it contains the right amount of oryzanol which is an antioxidant. It helps decrease cholesterol absorption and increasecholesterol elimination," says Gargi Sharma, Nutritionist & Weight-Management Expert. Indians are genetically prone to heart disease and therefore one should to take precautions to have a healthy heart.

 


4. The American Heart Association and The World Health Organization (WHO) recommend rice bran oil as the best choice for improving serum cholesterol levels.

5. Rice bran oil has a high smoke-point, which is pitched at 254C or 490F, which makes it perfect for stir frying or deep frying. It can maintain its nutritive quality even at high temperatures. Also, it has been seen that food cooked at high temperatures absorbs less oil.


6. Rice bran oil is less viscous which means that it does not stick to food. It absorbs less oil which is why you also need to be careful of the quantity you use. In fact, it tends to feel less oily on the tongue.

7.  "It is rich in Vitamin E which is powerful antioxidant and has antimutagenic properties which prevent from cancer.Vitamin E also helps in boosting your immunity," says Gargi.

8. "It contains high levels of natural antioxidants which boost your metabolic rate and may help with weight loss," adds Gargi.  The high level of antioxidants not only makes this oil healthy but also makes it resist rancidity and spoilage. It has a long shelf life.

9. Squalene is a compound present in Rice Bran Oil which is easily absorbed by the skin and keeps it soft, supple and smooth.

10. It is an anti-inflammatory and some studies have shown that its consumption can reduce the effects of menopause like hot flashes.

New Food Ingredient from Rice Bran Oil May Help Make Foods’ Fat Profile More Healthful

Taste testers report that a new, butterlike extract from rice bran oil—used as a partial butter replacement in a standard recipe for white bread—didn't detract from bread taste or texture: Click here for photo caption.
Taste testers report that a new, butterlike extract from rice bran oil—used as a partial butter replacement in a standard recipe for white bread—didn't detract from bread taste or texture.
(D3130-1)


If you enjoy cooking with a variety of different oils, you’ve probably worked with rice bran oil, perhaps for stir-frying or sautéing. A staple at Asian food markets or other specialty or gourmet grocery stores, this mild-flavored oil is high in vitamin E—an advantage that many other well-known cooking oils can’t offer. The oil comes from the outer layers of the rice kernel that are removed when the grain is milled and polished to produce white rice.

At the Agricultural Research Service’s National Center for Agricultural Utilization Research in Peoria, Illinois, chemist Erica Bakota and colleagues have shown how to extract natural compounds from the oil to make an interesting new food ingredient. Bakota says the product “looks something like a nut butter” and “shows promise for several uses,” including as a replacement for some of the butter, margarine, or shortening currently used in popular baked goods.

The product, or “extract,” consists primarily of unrefined rice bran oil and rice bran’s natural wax, used in confections. It also contains minor amounts of such compounds as vitamin E; plant sterols, including some that are of interest to medical and nutrition researchers because of their potentially health-imparting properties; and gamma-oryzanol, shown to lower levels of “bad” LDL cholesterol in humans.

Unlike some shortenings and margarines, the extract is free of trans fats, which contribute to increased risk of heart disease. Another plus: The extract is shelf-stable: It resists oxidation that could otherwise result in off-flavors and unpleasant odors.

In preliminary experiments, Bakota and co-workers have substituted the extract in place of some of the butter called for in conventional recipes for white bread and granola. Feedback from taste testers (technically speaking, sensory panelists) indicates that the substitutions didn’t detract from either the taste or the texture of the bread or granola.

The idea of making a butterlike product from rice bran oil isn’t new, nor is the team’s choice of solvent (acetone, which is already approved for extracting edible oils). However, Bakota’s extraction or fractionation procedure apparently differs from others in that it uses very low temperatures to keep the mixture of acetone and unrefined rice bran oil chilled while the compounds that make up the new extract are separated from the oil.

The result?

“The texture and composition of our product are unique,” Bakota says.

Bakota and Peoria teammates Michael J. Bowman, Hong-Sik Hwang, Sean X. Liu, Debra L. Palmquist, and Jill K. Winkler-Moser described the research in a 2013 scientific article published in the European Journal of Lipid Science and Technology and also in an article recently accepted for publication in that journal.

ARS is seeking a patent for the extraction procedure, and Bakota, in the meantime, is looking for collaborators interested in exploring applications of the extract. She explains, “We think our product can make the fat profile of many familiar foods much more healthful—and still get high ratings from taste testers.”—By Marcia Wood, Agricultural Research Service Information Staff.

This research is part of Quality and Utilization of Agricultural Products, an ARS national program (#306) described at www.nps.ars.usda.gov.

Good Fat and Bad Fat comparison for 13.6 grams of Oil, rice bran
Polyunsaturated Fats: Polyunsaturated fat can be found mostly in nuts, seeds, fish, algae, leafy greens, and krill. Whole food sources are always best, as processing and heating may damage polyunsaturated fats.

Monounsaturated Fats: Foods containing monounsaturated fats reduce LDL (bad) cholesterol, while possibly increasing HDL (good) cholesterol. ["You Can Control Your Cholesterol: A Guide to Low-Cholesterol Living". Merck & Co. Inc.]


Trans Fatty Acids: The National Academy of Sciences has concluded there is no safe level of trans fat consumption. This is because any incremental increase in trans fat intake increases the risk of coronary heart disease. [Dietary Reference Intakes for Energy, Carbohydrate, Fiber, Fat, Fatty Acids, Cholesterol, Protein, and Amino Acids (Macronutrients). National Academies Press. p. 504]

Saturated Fats: Consumption of saturated fat is a risk factor for cardiovascular disease in the view of the Canadian Heart and Stroke Foundation, the American Heart Association, the British Heart Foundation, the National Heart Foundation of Australia, the National Heart Foundation of New Zealand and the World Heart Federation.

In children, consumption of monounsaturated oils is associated with healthier serum lipid profiles (a group of tests that are often ordered together to determine risk of coronary heart disease.). ["A cross-sectional study of dietary habits and lipid profiles. The Rivas-Vaciamadrid study". Eur. J. Pediatr.].

Omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil, fish and seafood have been shown to lower the risk of heart attacks. [National Institute of Health (August 1, 2005). "Omega-3 fatty acids, fish oil, alfa-linolenic acid"].

Omega-6 fatty acids in sunflower oil and safflower oil may also reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. [Willett WC (September 2007). "The role of dietary n-6 fatty acids in the prevention of cardiovascular disease". Journal of Cardiovascular Medicine].

In one study, Omega-3 fatty acids reduced prostate tumor growth, slowed histopathological progression, and increased survival. [Mihelin M, Trontelj JV, Stålberg E (August 1991). "Muscle fiber recovery functions studied with double pulse stimulation". Muscle & Nerve 1].

A study published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute showed that High levels of docosahexaenoic acid were associated with a reduced risk of breast cancer. [Pala V, Krogh V, Muti P, et al. (July 2001). "Erythrocyte membrane fatty acids and subsequent breast cancer: a prospective Italian study". Journal of the National Cancer Institute 93]

Rice Bran Oil vs. Sunflower Oil

ALEXANDRA VAIRO

The plethora of plant-based cooking oils on the market today often make it difficult to determine when to use which one during meal preparation. Two of these oils, rice bran oil and sunflower oil, have similar nutrient profiles at 120 calories and about 13 grams of fat per tablespoon. Both oils deserve a place in a healthy diet, but they do differ in their nutritional value.

Saturated vs. Unsaturated Fatty Acids

Both sunflower and rice bran oils are naturally free of cholesterol. According to 2005 University of Rochester research, a natural component of rice bran oil has been found to lower cholesterol in rats. Sunflower oil offers more heart-healthy monounsaturated fat per serving -- 7.8 grams per tablespoon, compared to sunflower oil's 5.3 grams. Both sunflower and rice bran oils are low in saturated fat -- 1.3 and 2.7 grams per serving, respectively.

All About Omegas

You've likely heard of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, the main essential fatty acids in the human diet. While both oils contain high amounts of omega-6 fatty acids, neither contain many omega-3 fatty acids. While this doesn't cross them off the list as effective cooking oils, it does warrant that you monitor how often -- and how much -- you're eating, because most Americans already consume too much omega-6 relative to their intake of omega-3. Use omega-6-rich oils in moderation, and get some of your dietary fat from nuts, seeds and fish in order to achieve a lower omega-6-to-omega-3 ratio in your diet.

Vitamin E in the Oils

Both oils contain vitamin E. Sunflower oil is higher in vitamin E than rice bran oil -- 5.6 milligrams per tablespoon, or 37 percent of the recommended daily intake. To compare, rice bran oil contains 29 percent of the recommended daily value of vitamin E in one tablespoon..

Cooking With the Oils

Both oils are better for cooking at higher temperatures via methods like stir-frying or searing. With a smoke point of 450 degrees F, sunflower oil's light flavor makes it a favorite for frying and baking -- but not for drizzling. Additionally, it can be part of margarine and salad dressings. Rice bran oil is also useful for high-heat cooking, but it is slightly more versatile in that it can be used for drizzling and other cooking applications.
