Rice Bran Oil was a chance discovery for me. One of my neighbours was mentioning about rice bran oil. She was using this as her father-in-law’s doctor prescribed this oil for him. I wanted to try this and I liked the oil (okay, actually……..I did not find any difference between this oil and the previous oil I was using! :) ). It is almost two years now and I have been using only rice bran oil as the cooking oil for the entire family. While I could not find any difference in the taste of the food cooked using rice bran oil, it gives me great satisfaction that I am using a healthy oil.
Rice bran oil is rich in vitamin E and has antioxidants and helps in cholesterol control. In south of India, we get multiple brands of rice bran oil in most of the retail shops. I use Akshath rice bran oil which is available in retails like Nilgris, Spencers, Reliance and Food world.
Also, the cost of rice bran oil is comparatively very less than the regular sunflower oil. TRY IT!!!
