It is one of the healthiest. Sesame oil and olive oil have less saturated fatty acids than rice bran oil and they are also rich in antioxidant and contain oryzanol . Sesame oil (filtered) is the best oil in Indian condition. Rice bran oil, corn oil, custard oil , sunflower oil and ground nut oil come next.

A medically significant component of rice bran oil is the antioxidant -oryzanol, at around 2% of crude oil content. Thought to be a single compound when initially isolated, it is now known to be a mixture of steryl and other triterpenyl esters of ferulic acids. Also significant is the relatively high fractions of tocopherols and tocotrienols, taken together as vitamin E. Rice bran oil is also rich in other phytosterols which may provide health benefits.

Rice Bran oil could be the solution to the ever increasing metabolic syndrome cases in the world. This oil is a unique edible oil; with many nutritional benefits, as compared to other edible oils. In a recent seminar organised by Nutrition Quest under the aegis of Wellness Quotient, various benefits of Rice Bran Oil and why it is rightly known as an Indian version of Olive Oil was discussed. Experts like Dr. Meena Mehta; Vice President of the Indian Dietetic Association, Mumbai Chapter highlighted the role of Rice Bran Oil in reducing cholesterol and insulin resistance.
