Rice bran oil is extracted from the husks and germ of rice grains. In Indian and Asian cooking oil, rice is appreciated for its neutral, nutty flavor and high temperature which can be fried, which makes the oil ideal for stir-frying, stir frying, roasting and frying.
Throughout the world, rice oil known as an oil which fits into a healthy diet. This is because the oil is free of trans fatty acids, has a high content of monounsaturated fatty acids and is rich in potent antioxidants. It is rice oil hypoallergenic.
The fats in rice oil consist approximately of 20% of saturated fatty acids, 40% of monounsaturated fatty acids and 40% polyunsaturated fatty acids .1 Rice Bran Oil, compared with other oils, in addition to fats a very high content of other components, including vitamin E, gamma -oryzanol, phytosterols and polyphenols. Rice oil distinguishes itself from other oils due to the high content of tocotrienols and gamma-oryzanol.
Good for heart and blood vessels
Several compounds which are present in significant amounts in the oil, are responsible for this:
Alpha-tocopherol in rice oil inhibits the oxidation of LDL cholesterol, arteriosclerosis reduces the incentive effects of saturated fats and goes against ischemic heart disease;
Tocotrienols are powerful antioxidants, inhibiting the oxidation of LDL cholesterol, reduce the cholesterol biosynthesis, reduce the level of apolipoprotein B and Lp in blood, go arteriosclerosis and thrombosis against and presumably have a blood pressure lowering effect through the promotion of the renal excretion of sodium and water;
Gamma-oxyzanol is a powerful antioxidant and captures oxygen radicals, inhibits the aggregation of blood platelets, lowers the levels of triglycerides and LDL-cholesterol levels, the HDL-cholesterol level increases, has an anti-inflammatory activity, and goes against arteriosclerosis;
Phytosterols inhibit cholesterol absorption from the gastrointestinal tract and promote the excretion of bile acids, have an anti-inflammatory activity, and support immune function.
In two groups of experimental animals for 8 weeks were fed a cholesterol-rich diet or low-cholesterol by 10% of rice oil, the totaalcholesterol-, LDL-cholesterol and VLDL-cholesterol levels decreased significantly. The triglyceride levels also decreased and HDL cholesterol levels increased; also increased fecal excretion of cholesterol and bile acids. Animal studies have shown that rice oil atherogenesis significantly counteract, in part by inhibiting the accumulation of cholesterol in the vessel wall.
Rice oil supposedly has health effects that have not been properly investigated. Rice oil as possible to promote healing of gastric ulcers, may contribute to the prevention of cancer and benign prostatic hyperplasia and the reduction of symptoms of menopause and the brains may protect against damage from neurotoxins and increased oxidative stress.
