The function of your cooking oil is to cook your food. That’s why it is often referred to as a “cooking medium”. It is the medium that absorbs heat and slowly cooks your food. But is that all it does?
Well, if your cooking oil is Mustard Oil, the answer is “No!” Mustard Oil does a whole lot more than just cooking your food.
For starters, Mustard Oil is an extremely healthy ingredient that offers a mind-boggling array of benefits. It is proven to significantly reduce the risks associated with cardiovascular disease, hypertension and cancer. Mustard Oil also has some really unique attributes: it has antibacterial, antimicrobial, antiviral, antifungal and anti-inflammatory properties. These give Mustard Oil the power to fight infections in all parts of the body, and also to act as an effective pain reliever.
There’s more – Mustard Oil has a very positive effect on blood lipids. It boosts good cholesterol (HDL) and reduces bad cholesterol (LDL). In the process, it rectifies the body’s Triglyceride balance.
Moving on, Mustard Oil has excellent preservative properties. That’s why it is widely used in making pickles. Moreover, the antibacterial and antifungal properties we mentioned earlier prevent mould from forming on the vegetables and fruits being pickled.
Mustard Oil is also a very popular taste agent. Certain dishes like Bengali curries, Wazwan cuisine and Punjabi food derive their characteristic flavours from the Mustard Oil they are cooked in.
So ask yourself: Can my cooking oil do all this? Only Mustard Oil users can reply with a resounding “Yes!”
