Despite what you might read, all fats are not bad for you. And that goes for the ones we cook with as well. Unsaturated fats( plant-based) have many health benefits, including heart health and blood pressure reduction. Saturated fats ( animal based) can do just the opposite. And Transfats are a man-made substance that the body can’t even recognize!! So when cooking, try these oils for better health and better taste.
EVOO- Extra virgin olive oil has a great taste, good for heart health and decreasing cholesterol.it also has a LOW smoke point, so its not good for frying, Better for sauteing.
COCONUT-Even though this is a plant, it’s a saturated oil. It can be pricey and its health benefits have not been substantiated.
GHEE- Also saturated fat made from butter with a MEDIUM smoke point. It is lactose-free but still not great for your heart.
CANOLA-This has no real taste, but a HIGH smoke point. Also has the highest amount of omega 3’s of all the oils. Pay attention to the brand, some are very over processed.
VEGETABLE- Has a HIGH smoke point so its good for frying. But its highly processed and high in omega 6’s which cause internal inflammation.
Eating good fats can be satiating and good for you. You just have to know the right one to choose
