Which cooking oil is best for healthy living?

This question remains in each of our minds when we go for our monthly grocery purchase. With plenty of brands of cooking oil being available at the market, the process of choosing becomes confusing.

Do you know what the recent researches suggest, I bet you will be shocked. For sure at least few of you who have been to the dietician should have heard the benefits of using different kinds of cooking oils for cooking.

Yes, never use the same cooking oil every month, keep changing the cooking oil out of the whole bunch of choices available in the market. The reason being that different cooking oils have different composition of essential fatty acids (EFA), no single cooking oil will have all the EFAs. It is important that our body recieve all kinds of EFA.

What can you do?

Keep changing the cooking oil each month. The choice should be among the ones which are high in monounsaturated fatty acids, polyunsaturated fatty acid, and the one with high smoke point as smoke point is the temperature to which an oil can be heated before it smokes and discolours — indications of decomposition. At the smoke point, the oil begins to emit an unpleasant odor and impart an unsavory flavor to the food.

CHOICES INCLUDE:

1. Refined Oil.
2. Gingely Oil.
3. Groundnut Oil.
4. Olive OIl.

So keep changing the cooking oil each month to recieve all kind of essential fatty acids and remain healthy.
