5 Incredible Benefits of Refined Oil

Refined vegetable oil has been a cornerstone of Indian cooking for generations, and there are good reasons for its enduring popularity. Over the years, the demand has been exceptionally stable for sunflower and soybean refined oils as unlike other imported edible oils like palm, these are locally sourced, processed and packaged – making them more aligned with local eating and lifestyle habits of Indians as well as more affordable.

Here is a look at some of the proven health benefits of refined cooking oil

1. No contaminants

The biggest and most apparent benefit of refined sunflower or soybean oil is that the refining process removes various contaminants present in the crude oil (raw material) such as gums, color pigments, waxes, and toxins that remain in the oil after the initial extraction. Most of the refined sunflower oil or soya bean oil manufacturers in India use a combination of processing methods to remove soluble and insoluble contaminants to make oil safe for human consumption. Kriti has the world’s best oil refining technology designed to remove not only the contaminants from the raw material, but also ensure that there is no toxin formation in the product due to processing.

2. Fortification with essential nutrients

Some refined oil manufacturers in India, such as Kriti Refined Oil, ensure that the final product is enriched with added essential nutrients. While refined oils such as Soybean and Sunflower are naturally high in various nutrients like Vitamin E, omega 3 and 6 fatty acids. Kriti’s refining process ensures that the naturally present nutrients remain available in the refined oil. Additionally, vitamin A & D are added to make the whole package more Healthy & nutritive.

3. Long shelf life

The refining process also has the added benefit of extending the life of the cooking oil by removing the contaminants and impurities. Refined oil remains in its original form for much longer than unrefined or natural pressed oils.

4. Heart Healthy

Another critical health benefit of refined sunflower and soybean oil is cholesterol management. For example, refined sunflower oil has a high amount of Linoleic Acid, which is a polyunsaturated fatty acid that is proven to be good for health. Refined sunflower oil manufacturers in India also regulate PUFA (Poly-Unsaturated Fatty Acid) limit; for example, Kriti refined sunflower oil has 60% PUFA, which tends to lower LDL (bad cholesterol) and Total/HDL Cholesterol ratio and reduces the risk of Coronary Heart Diseases.

Kriti soybean refined oil is made with a unique method, which makes it expand upon heating; this means that you can cook more in less oil! This property is called ‘Lescon’ and keeps food cooked in it light and healthy.

5. Smoke point

Several refined oils such as sunflower or soya bean refined oil have a high smoke point, which is essential for Indian cooking that requires high heat sautéing, deep-frying, or tadkas. If the oil is heated beyond its smoke point, it loses its flavour and can even turn toxic, which makes refined oils extremely flexible in the kitchen. Due to its validated oil refining process, Kriti’s refined oils have higher smoke points as compared to other available brands.

There is absolutely no doubt that refined vegetable oils have a permanent place in Indian kitchens! You don’t have to wonder whether you need it or not, instead the crucial decision is to find the right type of oil from the right brand to suit our family’s needs and budget.
