Perilla oil

Why do You Say that Perilla is Indeed Full of Treasures?

Perilla is indeed a treasure all over the body. The active substances of perilla are extracted and made into medicines or health care products, which can achieve anti-oxidation, anti-depression, anti-allergy and other effects, but the amount of perilla we eat every day cannot achieve the desired effect. Why do I say that, let me prove it below.

Taking perilla leaves and perilla stalks as an example, their nutritional components (referring to the content in 100 grams of edible food) are: perilla leaves, crude protein 27.8 grams, crude fat 7.6 grams, crude 34.2 grams of fiber, 5.7 mg of β-carotene, 3.6 mg of vitamin C, 2150 mg of calcium, 3.9 mg of iron, etc.; perilla stem, 15.3 grams of crude protein, 4.7 grams of crude fat, 56.3 grams of crude fiber, 1.54 mg of β-carotene , vitamin C 1.25 mg, calcium 910 mg, iron 8.6 mg, etc.
In the daily diet, perilla leaves and stems contain high content of crude protein, β-carotene, Fe, Ca and other components, which have good nutritional value and can be matched with other ingredients to season, color and increase nutrients role.
In addition, perilla leaves and perilla stalks contain active ingredients such as perillone, rosmarinic acid, lutein, and β-carotene. The active substances contained in perilla are extracted by steam distillation, organic solvent extraction, ultrasonic extraction and other methods, and concentrated to make medicines or health care products, which can achieve anti-oxidation, anti-depression, anti-allergy and other effects.
For example, using mice with allergic asthma as experimental subjects, the experimental results show that: rosmarinic acid in perilla extract has a good healing effect on allergic asthma, and promotes cytokines and anti-allergic antibodies in mice. generation.

However, it is worth noting that the content of active substances ingested by eating perilla leaves is low and cannot reach the clinical dose, so the desired effect cannot be achieved.
Another treasure of perilla is perilla seeds.
Perilla seeds are rich in oil, with an oil content of 40% to 50%, which is equivalent to rapeseed. Perilla seeds can be pressed to obtain perilla seed oil. Perilla seed oil is rich in α-linolenic acid, with a content of 55% to 65%, much higher than other major edible oils (peanut oil 0.74%, rapeseed oil 7.21%). It is harmless and has no smell of fish oil. There are fewer bonds, the stability is stronger than fish oil and the cholesterol is low. Long-term consumption can prevent the occurrence of cardiovascular diseases and is beneficial to health. It is a recommended edible health oil for hypertensive patients. Perilla oil is not only an ideal edible health oil, but also can extract α-linolenic acid from it to be processed into health products. There are many types of perilla oil on the market now, and consumers can buy branded perilla oil through regular sales channels and eat it with confidence.

Which is Better, Perilla Oil or Linseed Oil

After the general linseed oil is placed at a temperature below zero for six hours, a cotton-like suspension appears; this substance is “wax”. Contains “waxy” linseed oil

Pure and pollution-free healthy oil.

1. To promote the intelligence and vision development of fetuses and infants, the main function is to metabolize a-linolenic acid into DHA, because the content of a-linolenic acid in perilla seed oil is higher than that of flax
Seed oil is high, so perilla oil is better than flaxseed oil.

2. If you buy it for infants to eat orally, it is recommended to buy a bottle of perilla oil for a try. If the baby does not accept it, you can change it to linseed oil, because the baby’s sense of taste is weakening
development, so the earlier it is given to the baby, the easier it is for the baby to accept the taste of this oil.

3. The difference in taste: The taste of linseed oil is slightly bitter, but most people can accept it. Some people think that the taste of perilla seed oil is a very strong fragrance of perilla seeds.
Some people think that the taste of perilla seed oil is a bit fishy. If you don’t take it directly, you can use any one.

4. The effects of linseed oil and perilla seed oil are the same in most aspects, but linseed oil has good anti-inflammatory and anti-allergic effects, and perilla seed oil has
