Rice Bran Oil - Heart Friendly Oil :
Choice of healthy cooking oil is an important subject. The ideas keep on changing as new evidence accumulates. It was generally believed earlier that oils rich in polyunsaturated fats (PUFA) oxidize very fast. Therefore, the excessive intake of these oils could lead to production of free radicals in the human system and thereby enhance the risk of certain cancers, cataracts, rheum fold arthritis, Parkinson’s disease and contribute to the aging process besides causing lipid per oxidation which now a days is considered as the root cause for Initiation of Coronary Heart Disease (C.H.D). All these findings have led to a change with respect to the earlier recommendations and a delicate balance between cholesterol balancing (instead of cholesterol lowering) properties and the oxidation stability has become an important concern now-a-days.
The American Heart Association now recommends use of oils or their blends having an equal proportion of saturated, mono-unsaturated and poly-unsaturated fatty acids. Some other recommendations allow even higher content of non-unsaturated fatty acids (MUFA) than that suggested above as mono-unsaturated fatty acids higher oxidation stability and unlike poly unsaturated fatty acids; these fatty acids do not adversely affect the good cholesterols.
Although, higher intake of polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA) content is no longer recommended but even the present day recommendations do suggest that about 33% of the fatal intake of fat should be derived from polyunsaturated fatty acids as polyunsaturated fatty acids are the only source of essential fatty acids commonly known as Omega 6 & Omega 3. These essential fatty acids play a key role in regulating many physiological processes in the body, such as controlling blood pressure, vascular damages in the brain and the heart, preventing blood clot in the arteries, lowering cholesterol, inflammation and other conditions. The World Health Organization (WHO) suggests that the ratio of Omega 6 and Omega 3 in the diet should be 5 – 10.
Rice Bran Oil - The most Ideal Cooking medium :
Rice Bran Oil is the only cooking medium which besides having an ideal SFA/MUFA/PUFA ratio and EFA ratio quite closer to the recommended levels, contain three types of natural anti-oxidants as against only one category found in most of the other vegetable oils, leading to comparatively better oxidation stability desirable for promotion of overall health. A number of scientific studies have confirmed that using Rice Bran Oil as a cooking medium could significantly reduce bad cholesterol without adversely affecting the good cholesterol due to presence of a unique component in this oil known as “ORYZANOL’ which is not found in any other vegetable oil.
Human trials conducted by the National Institute of Nutrition, Hyderabad have confirmed significant reduction in total cholesterol particularly the triglycerides levels by using Rice Bran Oil as compared to conventional cooking oils.
Studies conducted in Japan have shown that Rice Bran Oil has better cholesterol lowering power than Sunflower Oil, Corn Oil and Safflower Oil.
Similar studies conducted by Human Nutrition Research Centre, Washington ST., have confirmed that Rice Bran Oil provides better protection against coronary heart disease than Canola Oil.
