As moms, serving good food and seeing our kids and spouses delighted with how they taste is usually the highlight of our days. But with the onset of so many food-related diseases (e.g. heart diseases, diabetes, obesity), it will always be wise to be informed if we are really using the healthiest ingredients in our everyday dishes. This includes the humble but one of the most basic of them all – the cooking oil.
Grande Rice Bran Oil is unlike the rest of the cooking oil types most home cooks use. Why? It’s because the oil is extracted from the middle layer of the husk and the grain of rice. Remember why most healthy cooking books try to tell us to prefer unprocessed rice where the husk are retained rather than white rice? It’s because most of the vitamins like Vitamin E, phystosterols and what they call Gamma-oryzanol are in there.
Grande Rice Bran Oil is called “the Olive Oil of the East” and it is healthy to use in all kinds of cooking (frying, searing and sauteeing). It can also be used as a healthy dressing, as dip, or as base for baking. We’ve tried using Grande Rice Bran Oil in frying with intense heat and true, the oil doesn’t burn easily. The consistency of the oil is not that thick nor thin and yet, we didn’t taste any kind of greasiness in our food.
