Rice bran oil is the oil extracted from the oily layer in between the paddy husk and the white rice(polished rice). It is nutritionally superior edible oil providing immense benefits for the heart and general health which is one reason why the Japanese call it the 'heart oil', Diabetic Living India magazine reported.

According to human clinical studies conducted in the University of Lowell, the oil has significantly better cholesterol lowering properties compared to other popular oils. Scientists have attributed this to presence of Oryzanol in the oil.

Thank you for this very helpful information. While researching online about the best cooking oil, I found this post. I also found that Saffola Total is one of the best oils in the market. My LDL cholesterol is high which is supposed to be the reason for many health problems. Saffola Total is supposed to have double the amount of antioxidants which protects the heart and its Losorb technology makes the food less oily. I hope posts like this benefit more people!
