Do you cook with olive oil thinking that it is health?
Did you know that it saturates when heated to its smoke point?
Have you heard about high heat and low heat oils?
Heart-healthy fats are derived primarily from plant oils, and a single oil cannot be used for all your cooking (salads, dressings, cooking, frying etc) Instead, fill your pantry with a variety of oils
*olive oil : low heat , best for salads and dressings
*coconut oil: high heat, best for cooking
*grape seed oil: high heat, best for frying or cooking
*avocado oil: high heat, best for frying or cooking
Because of their chemical makeup, some oils are better suited for lower-heat cooking than others. This is important because heating oil in its smoke point — the temperature at which the oil begins to smoke — produces toxic fumes and harmful free radicals .
