Nutrition in Cooking Oils
  • All cooking oils are derived from plant sources
    and are hence healthy.
  • Cooking oils contain MUFA PUFA, which are
    healthy fats. Butter is saturated fat that can
    raise blood cholesterol levels.
  • PUFA containing oils provide essential fatty
    acids, called linoleic acid alpha-linolenic
    acid which must be supplied by the diet as the
    body cannot make them.

    Walnut, Mustard, Avocado, and Almond oils top the
    list.

Which Oil to Select?
  • Heating oil over a certain temperature alters
    its nutritional properties.
  • The "smoke point" refers to the temperature at
    which a cooking oil starts to break down and
    burn.
  • Safflower, Sunflower, Canola, Corn, Grapeseed,
    Peanut, Almond, Avocado, and Refined Olive oils
    have a higher smoke point and are well suited for
    high heat cooking.

Which Oil to Select?
  • Unrefined oils such as Extra Virgin and Virgin
    Olive oil have a lower smoke point and are best
    used for salad dressings and marinades.
  • Flaxseed, Walnut and Hemp oils should not be used
    for cooking since heat destroys their essential
    fatty acids, use them as a condiment or in salad
    dressings.
  • It is advisable to use a mix of all oils in
    different types of cooking to obtain complete
    health benefits from these oils.
