Using palm oil and Rutaceae herb, researchers at University of Putra Malaysia (UPM) have developed cooking oil that can be used 80 times.

Mohamed has invented AFDHAL cooking oil which was formulated using natural herbal extracts, capable of reducing oil absorption in cooking and can be used repeatedly for at least 80 times.

Prof Suhaila said AFDHA cooking oil was scientifically defined using the main ingredients, palm oil and Rutaceae herb, which are not only capable of reducing oil absorption in fried cooking up to 85 per cent but also minimise the risks of getting cardiovascular and cancer.

"Extracts from Rutaceaea herb serve as a natural antioxidant that prevents cooking oil from damage.

"Besides, wastage can be avoided through the use of cooking oil for 80 times, without affecting one's health.

"Another plus point of this product is that it is rich in high antioxidant, has antibacterial properties and antihistamine to enhance crunchiness, taste and quality of fried foods to prevent damage to the oil whether in cooking or keeping and poses less health risks.

"AFDHAL oil can be used for all types of cooking oils by applying 15 millimetre (ml) or one big spoonful to 150 ml or half a cup of cooking oil," she said.

She said the main feature of AFDHAL cooking oil enabled it to be accorded with patent rights from all over the world and it has been commercialised in the Lazada sale and purchase website.

The creation of AFDHAL cooking oil was based on five main concepts of oil production, namely Antioxidant (powerful) natural edible herbs extract, Free of trans-fats, synthetics or cholesterol, Decrease wastage, spoilage and allergy, Have health benefits, Anti -oil absorbed in food and Lengthen oil life and usage.
