I used to hear that olive oil is healthy so I was using it for frying, baking etc. What I didn’t know is that it’s healthy but for salads and dressing (cold). I’ve learnt so much during my health journey. In today’s world, it’s difficult to stay on truck with what’s healthy and what’s not. There’re hundreds of researches and studies done every month. I always try to stay on top of the game. Today I’d like to share the information I’ve collected on oils.
|Canola oil||Expeller Press||240°C|
|Olive oil||Extra Virgin||191°C|
|Hemp seed oil||165°C|
|Sunflower oil, high oleic||Unrefined||160°C|
In my house, you can find healthy oils like: coconut, flaxseed, olive, avocado and lots of others when I see a good deal J . I use them for different purposes. But remember, for high temperature cooking, select oils with a high smoke point. My favourite one is avocado oil J. For salad dressings or any other cold dishes, chose oils with a higher Omega-3 fatty acids (flaxseed oil), since they promote healthy cells and decrease stroke and heart attack risk.
Also, remember to buy organic, cold- pressed whenever possible.
HAVE A GOOD DAY ALL!!!
