Health Benefits of Mustard Oil

Created On : February 24, 2015

Hello all,

One of my friend thinks that there are no health benefits of using Mustard Oil, except for gaining fat. Is it true? Can anyone let me know if there are any health benefits of Mustard oil?

Hi Minnie, Mustard oil is one of the best oils to cook your food in. Mustard seeds naturally contain properties which help to heal any bronchial infections, if present. Also, it is one of the most excellent ways to prevent wheezing in patients. I would completely give Mustard Oil a good go!

Hey Minnie, At 5%, it has the lowest saturated fat in edible oils. Mustard oil does have erucic acid, which is considered noxious and not fit for consumption in the west, but the style of cooking in India too involves heating it up to almost smoking that reduces its noxiousness and smell. It is considered great for massages and is supposed to give strength to body according to Ayurveda, which also disputes the toxicity of erucic acid as it is being used in North India for ages. This is the mustard oil from pressed seeds, traditionally used in North India.
