Essential Pantry Non-GMO Rice Bran Oil

1/2 gallon

As seen in Bon Apettit

Delicate without adding a flavor, 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 Non-GMO 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.

Non-GMO rice bran oil 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. Most of the commercially produced cooking oils don't have the same level of anti-oxidant protection - which means many of the commerical oils (vegetable 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 Rice Bran Oil comes from Brazil, and most of the finished product goes to Japan. (Rice bran oil is the prefered frying oil for tempura.)

Health Benefits of Non-GMO 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.

Best high heat oil around
I can't swear to the health benefits included in the product's description, but it is definitely the best oil for use in high heat cooking I've ever seen. I've used peanut oil, avocado oil, almond oil, etc. and nothing has a higher smoke point than this rice bran oil. It's neutral in flavor and has a very long shelf life. I love it.

Love this Stuff
This is a great option for stir-frying and use in baked goods etc. I often use coconut oil, which is great healthwise, but has a strong flavor that isn't always appropriate for what I am cooking. I was tired of using vegetable oil for my pan frying and cakes due to the negative health benefits. This has become my go-to oil for these tasks as it is pretty affordable and works wonderfully. I highly recommend you try it!

Great for High Heat Cooking
This is now my go-to oil for high heat cooking. I’ve also been using it in salad dressings. Great!

Great for cooking and baking
I bought this oil on a whim based on a recipe featured at Chef Shop's webpage. Now it is all I use for high heat cooking when I don't use olive oil and it's amazing for baking. My favorite lately is in zucchini bread and chocolate cake. I highly recommend if you're looking for an alternative to canola or vegetable oil.
