Dr Oz: What Is Rice Bran Oil?
Too often when it comes to dieting, the problems we have aren’t with the foods we’re choosing, but how they are prepared. That’s why it’s important to pay attention to ingredients and additives, including the oils in which your foods are prepared. There’s a new oil gaining popularity among chefs: Rice Bran Oil.
Rice Bran Oil Swap
One audience member, Kimberly, said that she likes Rice Bran Oil because it’s easy to substitute in the kitchen without anyone telling the difference. You can use it in any recipe that calls for vegetable oil or other popular cooking oils. Another woman who tested out Rice Bran Oil said it has “a light and unique taste.” If you’re curious about the consistency, she reported that it’s even lighter than Olive Oil.

Dr Oz: Rice Bran Oil Review
Kimberly shared her Citrus Chicken Dish with Dr Oz. It was sauteed in a frying pan containing Rice Bran Oil. Dr Oz definitely enjoyed his sample.
Nicole said she used to cook with butter, but when she found out even her picky son can’t tell the difference, she committed fully to the Rice Bran Oil switch. She even started using it in her Chocolate Cake recipe, which sounds like a winner to me. Anything you can do to justify eating cake sounds like the right health plan for me.
Would you try Chicken & Veggies stir fried in Rice Bran Oil? This could be just the ticket for bringing a lighter and subtly healthier touch to your favorite Asian meals.
Dr Oz: Rice Bran Oil Chocolate Cake Review
Nicole shared a slice of her Chocolate Cake (made with Rice Bran Oil) with Dr Oz. He said that it was great, and Nicole liked that the oil doesn’t have a strong rice flavor on its own or in other dishes.
Dr Oz: Cold Pressed Rice Bran Oil
Rice Bran Oil typically sells for about $8, and if you can’t find it at your grocery store, try a specialty or health food store near you. Dr Oz recommended the Cold Pressed version of Rice Bran Oil. I found a 4-pack of Rice Bran Oil that has good reviews. Have you made the switch? Share your Rice Bran Oil experiences in the comments.
