Essential Pantry Rice Bran Oil - 1/2 gallon - Non-GMO/Brazil

As seen in Bon Apettit

Could this be the miracle fat that helps us get skinny? Dr Oz thinks so.

Delicate yet not very flavorful, rice bran oil just may be the world's healthiest edible oil. Rice bran oil comes from the most nutritious part of the rice grain, loaded with monounsaturated fats & polyunsaturated fats, as well as vitamin E. These are the good fats that help your body lose weight.

Which means that rice bran oil is not only nutritious, but a superior salad, cooking, baking and frying oil that leaves no lingering aftertaste.

Usage Suggestions
Extremely versatile, rice bran oil is an excellent choice for baking as well as just about any cooking method, from deep-frying to pan-frying, sautéing to stir-frying, baking to grilling.


High Smoke Point: At 485 degrees, it is higher than either peanut oil or grapeseed oil, preventing fatty acid breakdown at high temperatures. Its light viscosity allows less oil to be absorbed in cooking, thereby reducing overall calories - many of our chefs have reported using about half the cooking oil they used to use, due to the fact that Rice Bran oil is so thin.)

It mixes better in salad dressings and improves the taste of baked goods, providing cholesterol reduction, nutritional and anti-oxidant value.
Almost no flavor: Which means it mixes well with others.  Will not impart flavor to foods, letting all the other ingredients shine though.
Excellent Shelf Life: Rice bran oil has a long shelf life compared to other cooking oils, partly because of these antioxidants. (Note that most of the commercially produced cooking oils don't have the same level of anti-oxidant protection - which means many of the commerical oils (vegitable oil. canola oil, corn oil and safflower oil, to name a few) have already gone racid when you buy them in the grocery store.  Yuck!)
Non-GMO (Unlike almost all commercially produced cooking oils): The highest quality from Brazil, most of the crop goes to Japan. (Rice bran oil is the prefered frying oil for tempura.)

Health Benefits of Rice Bran Oil:
* Excellent source of vitamin E complex, antioxidants and other micro-nutrients to help fight free radicals and oxidation (otherwise known as racidity)

* Source of many other anti-oxidants, including tocopherols and tocotrienols, a unique antioxidant known as gamma oryzanol (known to decrease the symptoms of menopause), phytosterols, polyphenols and squalene.

* Excellent balance of saturated, monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, as recommended by such organizations as the American Heart Association and the World Health Organization. Approx lipid breakdown: 0-2% Omega 3's, 34-39% Omega 6's*, 38-42% Omega 9's, 0-3% Stearic Acid, and approx 18-21% Omega 7's (Palmitic Acid), know to help decrease C-reactive protein (CRP), as well as triglycerides and LDL cholesterol, and increase HDL cholesterol**


*As compared to Sunflower and Safflower oils, which contain approx 65% ad 75% Omega 6's respectively.
