Men at the supermarket confuse on what oil is the best for cooking

​Simple Guide to Oil

Choosing a healthy oil to use for cooking has become a hard decision to make. Studies have revealed that heating up vegetable oil leads to the release of high concentrations of chemicals called aldehydes, which have been linked to illnesses including cancer, heart disease, and dementia. Studies have also revealed that coconut oil is a much healthier option than sunflower/safflower oil.


 Because all cooking oils have their own benefits and adverse effects, choosing an oil depends upon the type of food being cooked. The most sensible thing to do is to keep a range of oils; coconut or a similar saturated fat for heavy frying, olive and grape seed oils for light frying and salads. Pumpkin and avocado oils for dressings and dips.

Keep also in mind that Baking and Grilling are better alternatives than cooking in oil.​ ​​​​
