Feature: Grande Rice Bran Oil

Friday, July 28, 2017

     Healthy eating habits start in the kitchen that's why choosing the right ingredient is beneficial in achieving overall wellness. My husband cooks our food. He knows that a healthy meal is made of fresh and natural ingredients. As much as possible, he buys fresh meat and vegetables in the supermarket and uses cooking oil that's low in cholesterol.

     Speaking of cooking oil, we use palm and corn oil alternately. My mother-in-law supplies us with corn oil that she buys in Saudi Arabia. If our stocks run out, then palm oil is what we use in frying our food. Aside from these, there are also other cooking oils that have healthier benefits like extra virgin olive, coconut, and vegetable oil but the latter two are chemically processed. There's a new player in town- Rice Bran Oil. Know more about RBO and the brand Grande that's already available in leading supermarkets nationwide after the jump :)

      Rice Bran Oil (RBO) is extracted from the middle layer of the husk and the grain. During the milling process, the bran is removed and thrown away to obtain white rice. Unfortunately, the bran is considered to be the most nutritious part of the rice grain since it is loaded with natural antioxidants.

  • High smoke point so you can cook at high temperatures without compromising taste.
  • Neutral taste and low viscosity to retain the natural flavor of the food.
  • Rich in antioxidants - Vitamin E, Phytosterols and Oryzanol which may help improve cholesterol levels.
  • Balanced fat profile to help balance your diet with the right amount fat.
  • 100% physically refined, no need for additives - you get all natural nutrients in the oil.

The Great Grande Cook-Off

     Grande Rice Bran Oil was launched in a cooking event called The Great Grande Cook Off led by Chef Miko Aspiras. He taught us how to cook healthy meals using Grande Rice Bran Oil. He also gave cooking tips that will make cooking at home a breeze.

     For the appetizer, he prepared Sesame Tuna Aburi Tataki Salad. It's basically tuna salad with a twist because the dressing was sesame mayonnaise, made using fresh ingredients like eggs, sesame seeds, and Grande Rice Bran Oil

     Our main course was super crunchy, yummy, but not oily Pork and Beans. Craving for this dish while writing this post, ugh! This is pork belly deep fried in Grande Rice Bran Oil. Looks sinful but healthy because it's not pork and fat at all. Look at the side dish, it's vegetables and the dressing was also made with Grande Rice Bran Oil. Rice, please?!

     There's always room for dessert and we had Pili Donuts and Cream. This one is for the books! Made with simple ingredients but full of flavor. The donuts were deep-fried using Grande Rice Bran Oil. What made this dessert truly special was the Pili Butter Glaze. Imagine peanut butter but this one's made from Pili Nuts.

         Yay! That was an afternoon of learning and great food. I was a convert of Rice Bran Oil already because of the neutral taste and the food doesn't taste oily even if most were cooked deep-fried. I highly recommend Grande Rice Bran Oil for all your cooking and baking needs. Grande Rice Bran Oil is available in Rustan's Supermarket, Cash & Carry Supermarket, Restaurant Depot, Makati Supermarket Alabang, Pioneer Centre Supermarket, The Green Company, Jackson Fruit Store, Little Store, and Unimart Greenhills. It's available in 1L for P185 and 2L for P365.
