For an Indian householder, the search for the perfect oil is never-ending! Just when you settle on one brand or a type of oil, out comes more information on why it’s not good for health! The market is full of competing advertising messages, which make even the most careful buyers second-guess themselves.
As a leading soya bean oil manufacturer in India, we would like to help bring some clarity to the selection process by adding some information on why soybean refined oil should be a part of your daily cooking routine –
1. Switch to Soybean oil for a healthier heart
Soybean oil is rich in unsaturated fatty acids and plant starch. It is also full of vitamins E, and K. Soybean oil is composed of phytochemicals, such as isoflavones, saponins, phytosterols, and phenolic acids. These play a crucial role in inhibiting cardiovascular diseases and cancers.
2. It has a whole range of other health benefits too
Apart from health diseases, using soybean oil for cooking offers a host of health benefits such as the isoflavones present in soybean oil stimulates healthy bone growth and reduces menopausal symptoms in older women, Omega-3 fatty acids help vision, Vitamin E is excellent for hair and skin, Vitamin K has proved to help reduce the symptoms of Alzheimer’s and the list just goes on.
3. Versatile in the kitchen
Refined soybean oil has a high smoke point, which is highly useful for Indian cooking processes. But it has many other uses as well – it is used as salad dressing, in baked goods, as an emulsifying agent, in icings and fillings for bakery products and is mixed in sauces like mayonnaise and is also used for deep frying. Keeping soybean oil in your kitchen cupboard will take care of all your cooking needs.
4. Refined = safe
Refined soya bean oil is also a safe edible option. The refining process removes all types of contamination (chemical or natural) and ensures that the oil that reaches your kitchen shelf meets all the health and regulatory benchmarks.
India is a net importer of soybean oil, but the Government’s help and a glut in the global soybean oil supply ensure that the price remains affordable and stable. In fact, the prices have dropped by 35% since 2012. This makes sunflower oil an affordable consumer item of good quality – it is healthy but reasonable for a family’s monthly food consumption.
