Mustard Oil & Soybean Oil

Do not mix oil or water. But there is no way to mix them without cooking. This Michelle has been around since time immemorial. In the old days, mustard was the main cooking oil. Kalur’s balod (Oil producer from raw mustard) have been released. It is now rare to find that pure bitter liquid broken in the grinder. However, mustard oil did not fall into the category of extinct ingredients. Its use in cooking has been greatly reduced though. The cooks now use mustard oil in the cooking of minor and some hobbies like bhaji, bharta, pickle, chutney etc.

The day changes. People’s behavior, tastes and habits also change. What is modern today, tomorrow is so dirty, old, old-fashioned. Mustard oil has been a lot like that. Not only did it have a share in its monopoly, it can be said that soybean oil has been removed by pushing the mustard oil properly. There are many reasons for not getting mustard oil. Many people have grown in the country. Mustard production has not increased to meet the demand. To fill that gap, soybeans have been introduced little by little since the seventies of the last century. At that time its price was also cheap.

This is also one of the reasons for the rapid popularity of soybeans. However, soybean oil is still half the price of mustard oil in the market. As a result, it is certain that there is no possibility of holding the lost seat of mustard oil.

Rice bran Oil & Sunflower Oil

Will the soybean seat survive in the first place? It’s been a long time. Palm oil was a bit of a threat to soybeans in the middle, but soybeans could not be removed from the top of the edible oil list in the end. Soybean prices sometimes go up. Then many people raised their hands towards the palm oil. Otherwise, as soybean oil became popular as an alternative to mustard oil, palm oil did not become as popular as an alternative to soybean.

Another new edible oil has already appeared in the market. It can be called fancy. Rice bran oil. The husk that has been used as fuel and fodder for so long is being extracted for the sake of technological advancement. That oil has come to the open market in a beautiful bottle. The color is close to mustard oil. Affordable in price. Almost like soybean oil. It’s been a couple of years since this ‘Rice Bran Oil’ came on the market. This oil is being produced in the country in almost a dozen companies. Speaking to vendors, it was learned that about one-third of the edible oil market has been taken over by the new oil. That is why it seems that this time, it seems to be true that the bran oil is going to become a strong competitor of the soybean oil. Even the number one seat in the near future is unlikely to be ruled out.

There are two other types of oil in the edible oil market. But in a limited form. Sunflower oil and olive oil. These two oils come from abroad.
