What is Rice Bran Oil?
Rice Bran: The Golden By-Product
Rice Bran Oil (RBO) is extracted from the middle layer of the husk and the grain. During the milling process, the bran is removed and thrown away to obtain white rice. Unfortunately, the bran is considered to be the most nutritious part of the rice grain since it is loaded with natural antioxidants such as vitamin E, phytosterols and Gamma-oryzanol. Using the finest extraction and refinement process, Grande Rice Bran Oil is produced with best quality and guaranteed to have natural nutrients in the oil.
What makes Grande Rice Bran Oil a breed apart?
All the health benefits, without compromising quality
Almost all cooking oils go through a chemical refinement process to remove any unwanted compounds like free fatty acids. While the oil becomes more refined to become edible, it also strips it of any natural antioxidants and nutrients. Grande Rice Bran Oil is refined physically so that no caustics are used, thus retaining all natural nutrients within the oil – no need for nutritional additives.
Cook to your heart’s content
The smoke point of cooking oils is the temperature when it begins to burn and its nutritional value starts to degrade. When you heat oil past its smoke point, the oil becomes rancid, making the food inedible. Even when you use extra virgin olive oil (EVOO), it loses all its health boosting values once it begins to smoke. Unlike most cooking oils, rice bran oil’s high smoke point means that you can fry, sear and sauté food without compromising taste and its nutritional value. Moreover, rice bran oil is less viscous compared to other oils, not only making your food less oily but also preserving its natural flavor.
Nature’s gift to the heart
A unique natural antioxidant only present in rice bran oil, Oryzanol, helps improve blood cholesterol and triglyceride levels and has other health benefits . Grande Rice Bran Oil only uses the best physical refinement process to maintain the high levels of Oryzanol, vitamin E (tocopherol and tocotrienol) and phytosterols found in rice bran so you can maintain an active lifestyle.
Maintaining a Balanced Diet
In line with the joint consultation of Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and World Health Organization (WHO) in 2008, rice bran oil’s fat profile is closest to their fat intake recommended for adults. There is no need to change the oil regularly to keep up with fast changing diet restrictions.
Certified by International Standards
Grande Rice Bran Oil is certified with international standards like Halal Food by Halal Food Agency and HACCP Food Safety Management issued by British Standard Institution (BSI) in Vietnam.
