These are not only capable of reducing oil absorption in fried cooking up to 85 percent but also minimize the risks of getting cardiovascular diseases.

"Extracts from Rutaceaea herb serve as a natural antioxidant that prevents cooking oil from damage. Besides, wastage can be avoided through the use of cooking oil for 80 times, without affecting one's health," said lead researcher Suhaila Mohamed in a university statement.

The oil product is rich in high antioxidant, has antibacterial properties and antihistamine to enhance crunchiness, taste and quality of fried foods to prevent damage to the oil whether in cooking or keeping and poses less health risks, she said.

Besides, only a small quantity of 15 ml would suffice for normal cooking, she added. The main feature of "AFDHAL" cooking oil enabled it to be accorded with patent rights from all over the world and it has been commercialized now.
