3 cooking oils that help you stay healthy like nothing else can!

A necessary item for cooking and baking, oil is a classic staple in any kitchen. But which oils are best for handling the heat? You know you can sprinkle extra-virgin olive oil on bread or a salad, but is it the best cooking oil? With a dizzying array of options now on store shelves, choosing the best oil to sizzle your food in can seem like a more daunting task than perfecting the clean and jerk. It turns out that some oils are better for cooking than others. Instead of making you play a long game of "hot or not," this quick guide will help you with the three healthiest cooking oils.

Mustard oil is highly recommended for the reason that it is full of monounsaturated fatty acids which are very essential for our health - good for the heart, lighten skin, help in hair growth, prevent premature graying of hair, etc. According to a study done by the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, including mustard oil in your regular diet could prove to be beneficial to your heart health, keeping a check on blood fat levels and helping in circulation.
Kachchi ghani refers to cold press extraction process for taking out oil from seeds. Traditionally, oil from seeds were extracted in kohlus (a wooden cold press used with the help of a cow). In this process, seeds are crushed at low temperature so natural properties, antioxidants and essential oils are retain in the oil. Raishakti is pressed Mustard Oil used for cooking.
Pitambari Rai Shakti mustard oil is made from the first press of mustard seeds in the traditional way, in which the best mustard seeds are slowly crushed in a temperature-controlled environment to retain pungency and natural properties enhancing the taste of the food. Its high pungency levels also help stimulate your appetite.

Sesame seeds are full of high quality protein and contain magnesium and other nutrients that help prevent diabetes & control blood pressure. Sesame helps lower cholesterol levels, because it contains phytosterols that block cholesterol production. Black sesame seeds are especially high in phytosterols. The high fiber content of sesame seeds helps the intestines with elimination.
Pitambari Saptashakti Sesame oil is extracted under low-temperature conditions using an expeller press in a process called cold pressing. This extraction method is popular among raw food adherents because it avoids exposing the oil to chemical solvents or high temperatures during extraction.

Rice Bran Oil (RBO) is obtained from the most nutritious part of rice – the golden brown layer which covers the white rice. With a very neutral taste, it is very stable at higher temperatures and has a prolonged shelf life. However, its most notable feature is its high level of components with nutraceutical value such as Gamma-oryzanol, tocopherol and tocotrienol. It also contains vitamins, antioxidants, nutrients and is trans-fat free. Perhaps the only oil that helps lower cholesterol LDL (bad cholesterol) and increase HDL (good cholesterol), RBO helps the body fight diseases, enhance the immune system and fight free radicals. And yes, it is easier to clean up the dishes if the food is cooked in rice bran oil!
