Rice Bran oil has become popular here, Rice Bran Oil, The World's Healthiest Oil
They like to promote themselves and as Andy M says, they like to bag each others product.
In our fish and chip business I used Palm oil, it was the most economical
[I bought from these people]
I love fish and chips and can eat it daily, which I virtually did for the eight years we were in the shop. My weight suffered from eating so much battered fish but my bad cholesterol count is 4 while my good cholesterol count is 6.5 but my sugar is a bit high at 6. So I am living proof the some oils are not that
bad for you.
For an experiment I ran a 25 litre vat of Palm oil beside a 25 litre vat of Rice Bran oil at 185C. The Palm oil darkened quicker, but not excessively, whereas the Rice oil foamed quicker and became a bit of a problem. Both oils lasted the seven days that oils should.
Very few, if anybody, uses Peanut oil here commercially for fear of litigation due to so many people now being allergic to peanuts.
For home use I prefer the Rice oil because it is nice and clean in smell and flavour, and it is also nice and light to use compared to canola etc.
