Rice Bran is obtained from the granular coating between the rice kernel and the rice husk, known as the hull. Tocopherols and Tocotrienols Rich Fraction (TRF), are components of Vitamin E, have effective cholesterol lowering properties. It has been reported the best form of TRF comes from Rice Bran Oil. The Physical Refining Process adopted in the production of Suriny Rice Bran Oil has enabled high retention of antioxidants, Gamma-Oryzanol, Vitamin E (Tocotrienols & Tocopherols), and plant sterols (phytosterol).
There are two types of fats we consume in our daily diets. One is invisible fat, which comes from all natural fat present in vegetables, fruits, cereals, poultry, meat, fish and other foods. The other one is visible fat, which is the cooking medium. We have no control over the invisible fat intake. However, the quantity and quality of visible fat intake can be controlled to maintain better health. The fatty acid profile of rice bran oil is closest to the American Heart Association (AHA) recommendations compared to the profile of other vegetable oils. Another component of fats and oils is the unsaponifiable fraction (unsap), a percentage value regarding the antioxidants and micronutrients contents of oil. Rice bran oil has 4.2% of unsap, whereas all other oils have unsap less than 1-2%. It is the combination of an excellent essential fatty acid profile and a high unsaponifiable fraction that brings about cholesterol reduction. Furthermore, rice bran oil does not produce any allergenic reactions when ingested, as does several oils. Rice bran oil is known for its high levels of bioactive phytochemicals, such as oryzanol, tocols, and sterols. Our Physically Refined process retains more than 80% of these micronutrients in the end product. Rice bran oil has the highest cholesterol reduction capacity of any other oil.
