Eating cheap and bad oils only causes harm to our bodies in the short or even long run.
That’s why eating outside should not be done so often, as restaurants buy and use oil in bulk (mainly the unhealthier ones)
Fact: Different oils actually change their taste, colour, texture and nutrition when exposed to heat and the benefits of the oil can be lost if over cooked.
Which ones to use then?
- Coconut oil –Full of saturated fat, it can help HDL (good) cholesterol. Nicer cooked with seafood and veggies. Coconut oil is very healthy and it can sustain its benefits at high temperature!
- Rice Bran Oil- Claims to be the healthiest oil out there! Very good types of fat, works well at high temperatures and also helps cholesterol.
- Sesame Oil- It comes in a light or dark colour depending on if the seeds were toasted or not pre pressing. Has a high smoking point. Mostly used in Asian cooking and marinades.
- Almond oil – Works well for very high temperatures, it’s normally pressed and refined for a smooth healthy oil.
That’s all friends
