Rice Bran Oil is extracted from the protective bran and germ of the rice grain after all the husk has been removed from it. The clear liquid oil is produced as an effect of a careful refining process to give you only the purest oil through Riso.
A diet is never wholesome unless every element of it holds its promise. Riso encourages you to follow a truly wholesome lifestyle. And there is not just a single reason, but many things that contribute to making Riso one of the best cooking oils.
Riso is a 100% physically refined rice bran oil. Unlike chemically refined oils that lose 85-95% of their natural nutrients, physically refined oils retain most of their nutrients which helps to make the oil wholesome.
Since Riso is a physically refined oil, Riso is rich in natural nutrients. Unique to rice bran oil is an anti-oxidant called Oryzanol along with another natural anti-oxidant, vitamin E. Besides this, Riso contains natural omega 3 & 6 and is also fortified with vitamin A & D.
WHO & AHA (American Heart Association) recommend using an oil which has a fat profile of SFA:MUFA:PUFA in the ratio 1:1.5:1. Our oil has a balanced fat profile that comes closest to this ratio, thus, making it one of the healthiest cooking oils to use. So, you also get the best of all these elements without having to change your oil regularly.
Smoke point is that temperature beyond which an oil starts to burn. Rice bran oil has a very high smoke point of around 180 degree Celsius, which is higher than most cooking oils. This high smoke point of Riso ensures that all the rich natural nutrients & anti-oxidants aren’t burnt. It also means that less oil is absorbed while cooking, making your food less oily.
Riso works towards your overall health. It is a nutrient-packed oil that goes beyond just protecting you from one health condition but instead offers a gamut of health benefits through the Goodness of Oryzanol – vitamins – omega 3:
