Dublin, April 15, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Rice Bran Oil Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2021-2026" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The global rice bran oil market reached a volume of 453.6 Million Tons in 2020. Rice bran oil is an edible vegetable oil which is extracted from the outer brown layer of rice. Characterized by a mild flavor and neutral taste, it is rich in vitamin E, antioxidants, and natural bioactive phytoceuticals such as oryzanol, tocopherols, tocotrienols, and lecithin. It is exceptionally versatile and light in texture, offers delicate flavors, is suitable for high-temperature cooking, and can easily be blended with other less stable oils. Consequently, it is widely employed in various cooking methods including stir and deep-frying, sauteing, and grilling. It is also associated with reducing the risk of cancer, lowering cholesterol levels, increasing immunity, and improving the nervous system.

Rising awareness about the multiple health benefits offered by rice bran oil has escalated its consumption. This, in confluence with the high demand for food and beverages with low fat and high nutritional content, is strengthening the growth of the market. Moreover, the World Health Organization (WHO) and the American Heart Association have approved the use of rice bran oil, stating that its composition of monounsaturated, polyunsaturated, and saturated fats is much safer as compared to the composition of most other vegetable oils.
