PURE MUSTARD OIL
Mustard Oil comes from mustard seed and we commonly use it for cooking. Also used in different kinds of mesh, used as ingredient of puffed rice. Locally it called “Sorisar tel” or “Sorser tel” or “Sharisha tel”. This oil enriched with monounsaturated fatty acids, which reduce the cardiovascular disease. It consists of a compound having anti-inflammatory properties.
The compound of horseradish and wasabi gives the strong teste to Mustard Oil.
Now a days people are using Mustard Oil instead of Soybean Oil, because this Oil having healthy benefits over Soybean Oil.
Why Mustard Oil using as cooking oil now a days?
According to the University of California Riverside, UCR:
University of California – Riverside (UCR) research shows soybean oil not only leads to obesity and diabetes, but could also affect neurological conditions like autism, Alzheimer’s disease, anxiety, and depression.
֎ The same UCR research team found in 2015 that soybean oil induces obesity, diabetes, insulin resistance, and fatty liver in mice. Then in a 2017 study, the same group learned that if soybean oil is engineered to be low in linoleic acid and it induces less obesity and insulin resistance.
֎ Specifically, the scientists found pronounced effects of the oil on the hypothalamus, where a number of critical processes take place. Hypothalamus regulates body weight via your metabolism, maintains body temperature, is critical for reproduction and physical growth as well as your response to stress,” said Margarita Curras-Collazo, a UCR associate professor of neuroscience and lead author on the study.
The research team discovered roughly 100 other genes also affected by the soybean oil diet.
“If there’s one message I want people to take away, it’s this: reduce consumption of soybean oil,” Deol said about the most recent study.
Now scientists have considered this as the ‘friendliest oil’. Mustard seed oil has the lowest saturated fat content amongst edible oils. Scientific research has discovered its excellence.
According to a survey by American Heart Association, Mustard Oil is better than Olive oil from the health point of view. It is not only good for healthy people but is also good for heart patients. The reason behind the fact is that Mustard Oil comprises of 12% Omega-3 (Alpha Linolenic Fatty Acid) as compared to Olive oil (only 0.6%).
According to the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, Mustard Oil reduces heart attacks by nearly 70%. Another study, conducted by the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) and the St John’s Medical College, Bangalore, confirms that the consumption of Mustard Oil reduces the risk of coronary heart diseases by almost 70%. This could be attributed to its healthy fatty acid profile. Some believe that this oil also helps reducing blood fat — ‘triglycerides’ and lowers the tendency of blood clotting. Also known for its anti-inflammatory properties, it is useful in the treatment of conditions such as asthma and arthritis. Eating food cooked in Mustard Oil can also help lower blood pressure in those who suffer from hypertension. The fats in Mustard Oil also help in treating patients with depression. They are also known to boost brain function in general.
This oil is found to have very low levels of artery clogging saturated fatty acid and high levels of good Omega 3 fatty acid and mono-unsaturated fatty acid and thus scores over other cooking mediums including refined oils, olive oil and soybean oil.
Benefits of Mustard Oil:
- Reduces the cardiovascular disease for its monounsaturated fatty acids .
- It contains compound of ally isothiocyanate could decrease inflammation and pain.
- Developing of ischemic as a result heart disease risk will be half.
- It has cancer-fighting properties
- Having powerful antimicrobial properties might block microbial growth.
- I’s high monounsaturated fatty acids keeps our heart health.
- Down bad “cholesterol”.
- In 100 grams (g) of Mustard Oil, there are:
- 59 g of monosaturated fatty acids
- 21 g polyunsaturated fatty acids
- 11 g saturated fatty acids
- It’s allyl isothiocyanate gives strong taste.
- It consist of horseradish and wasabi.
- It’s enriched by omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids
֎ Nutritional information:
According to the USDA, 100 grams of Mustard Oil contains:
– 884 calories of food energy
– 11% saturated fat
– 59% monounsaturated fat,
– 21% polyunsaturated fat.
Where Mustard Oil are used:
- cooking food instead of Soybean oil
- also used Used in several types of mesh (like potato, bean, fishes etc.)
- used in mixture of pupped rice
- more hygienic for frying having high smoking point 249 deg. C
- used in Salad
- widely used as preservative in Pickle
- used in Skin
- used in Hair
Nothing can beat Mustard Oil in cooking; if it comes from red (Bangladeshi) mustard seed, extracted by Cold Press Extraction.
Way to get best Mustard Oil:
1. Seed Selection:
- You could get best Oil only from red small native (Bangladeshi) seed
- You should not mix red seed with white seed.
- improper dried seed should be avoided. If you extract partially wet seed, oil smell and quality will be deteriorated.
- To get satisfactory smell, you should not mix up native seed with foreign seeds even it downsize your expense.
2. Extraction Process Selection:
There are two traditional process for extraction:
A) Cold Press Extraction:
This type extraction uses either Wooden Ghani or Metal Ghani (inside covered by wood). Only Ghani produce not only pure and also healthy/hygienic oil. Cold Press Extraction does not produce high heat while extracting oil from seed. Another name of Cold Presse Oil is “Ghani Oil”.
About 70% of the total oil in seed are extracted by cold press/ghani. Rest 30% oil remains into the husk and taken to Hot Press Extraction process/expeller press.
B) Hot Press Extraction:
Husk (having about 30% oil) produced in cold process are taken to the expeller pressing machine. Sometimes mustard seed directly pour to expeller.
Household application uses small expeller press which us
Why called hot press?
Expeller Press (either commercial or small type uses at home) is called hot press. Expeller produces huge heat while extraction of oil from seed. This high heat changes Oil properties. As a result, hot press oil becoming pure oil are not recommended as healthy/hygienic edible oil (cooking oil).
Cold Pressed Oil or Hot Pressed Oil and why?
It is obvious that considering health issues we should use Cold Press Oil.
Heat produced hot pressed changes characteristics oil which is not good health. That’s why everybody should avoid hot press oil even is pure.
Should follow should not follow to get healthy/hygienic Mustard Oil:
You should follow:
√ Selection should be Red Bangladeshi seed.
√ Extraction process will be Cold Presse only.
You should not follow:
× Mixing of Bangladeshi red seed with foreign red seed and white seeds
× Extraction of hot process even by household machine (small machine uses in home)
Best Healthy/Hygienic Mustard Oil:
You will get pure and healthy/hygienic “Mustard Oil”/”Ghani Oil” form Pick Plus Bd. Because we are assuring you:
֎ We use deshi seed and do not mix red & white together.
֎ we extract oil only by ghani (inside wood and outside metal) and do not mix Cold & Hot pressed oil together.
