|Characteristics, Benefits & Risks||
Rice bran oil contains a nearly equal balance of saturated, monounsaturated, and polyunsaturated fats. It’s also high in antioxidants such as Vitamin E. As with any fat source, moderating your daily intake may help avoid potential health risks.
Prasada’s 100% premium rice bran oil is obtained from the outer layer (“bran”) of the rice grain using a mechanical process without the use of hexane or other chemicals. This method of extraction produces an oil that’s free of toxic residues, mild and flavorful, and with much of its nutritional value intact.
Following extraction, rice bran oil is processed in a four-part “RBDW” sequence: refined to remove impurities and excess acidity; bleached to impart consistent color; deodorized to neutralize taste and smell; and winterized using a cooling process that removes crystals in the oil, leaving it bright and clear at lower temperatures. Rice bran oil’s high smoke point (490˚F) makes it an excellent choice for a wide variety of cooking applications.
A higher smoke point means a better performing oil. And for high-heat applications such as deep frying, rice bran oil functions like a pro. Yet its neutral flavor and light texture can expand its repertoire into an all-around cooking oil, one that easily pairs with other flavors without overpowering them.
