Why is rice bran oil healthier than olive oil

Olive oil is famous for its health benefits, but now rice bran oil seems to be in the spotlight & ndash here are its properties and why it is even healthier than olive oil.

Rice bran oil is obtained from germs, but also from the husk of rice grains. It is used mainly in Asian cuisine, for fried dishes.

Why rice bran oil is healthier than olive oil

Contains a higher amount of vitamin E & ndash Rice bran oil contains a higher concentration of vitamin E than olive oil.

It contains two special compounds, which are not found in olive oil & ndash Orgyianols and tocotrienols are compounds found in rice bran oil. The former prevent the absorption of "LDL" cholesterol into the bloodstream, while tocotrienols are converted to vitamin E once they reach the body. The antioxidant properties of this vitamin combat the effects of free radicals, thus delaying the aging process.

It is a better option for cooking & ndash rice bran oil has a higher burning point than olive oil. Specifically, its burning point is 255 degrees Celsius, and that of olive oil is 180 degrees Celsius. If the burning point of an oil is exceeded during the cooking process, it becomes toxic.

Fights menopausal symptoms & ndash Rice bran oil reduces the manifestations of menopause, from hot flashes to nervousness.

Prevents allergic reactions & ndash due to its hypoallergenic nature, rice bran oil does not favor allergic reactions and also has a calming effect on existing allergies.

It has a longer shelf life than olive oil & ndash olive oil deteriorates quite quickly, losing its flavor and even some properties. On the other hand, rice has a longer shelf life than many oils on the market.

Contributes to weight loss & ndash Although it is rich in calories, the viscosity of this oil means that the body does not absorb more than 20% of the amount consumed. Since oils are a high-calorie food, they should always be eaten in moderation.

The conclusion would be that rice bran oil has many advantages that olive oil does not have, but also olive oil should not be neglected, because it has some properties that rice does not have. For example, being obtained by cold pressing, olive oil has more nutrients and more vitamins than rice.

Nutritionists advise us to use, in decent quantities, both types of oil. Rice oil should be used to cook sauteed or fried foods, while olive oil should be used more in salads or for seasoning pre-cooked dishes: cream soups, grilled vegetables and more.

Other uses of rice bran oil:

  • It can be used both by ingestion and by skin application, to accelerate the wound healing process, by stimulating cell regeneration.
  • Protects the skin from UV radiation and reduces the appearance of wrinkles, if applied to the skin.
  • It can be used as an ingredient in moisturizing hair masks.

Contraindications to rice bran oil

People with gastrointestinal sensitivity may have gastric discomfort when introducing rice bran oil into their diet. Flatulence, bloating, cramps and diarrhea may occur.

Patients suffering from gastrointestinal diseases such as celiac disease, ulcerative colitis or Crohn's disease should avoid eating rice oil.
