In Reply to: BEST OILS FOR COOKING !! posted by Chris1 on November 09, 2000 at 12:44:12:
Thanks for the info, I needed that! I read that one of the things I should limit for acne is saturated fat - olive oil has usually I think between 5-10% per serving - I'm just curious if you know anything at all about that, because its something I've tried to limit & only recently started to relax a bit on it (no problems yet). Do you know what % to go for as far as on a daily basis, or how bad it is, anything like that? I also do a lot of fiber which is supposed to counteract the fact absorption I think. Any info would help me out - thanks!!
: Hi all:
: For those of you that have ever wondered on what are the best oils for cooking here is the info.
: Most experts now agree that the best oils for cooking are canola and olive oil. These oils are composed chiefly of oleic acid, a monounsaturated oil that is more resistance to the damaging effects of heat compared to highly polyunsaturated oils like corn, safflower and soy. When polyunsaturated oils are exposed to heat, the chemical structure of the essential fatty acids are changed to toxic derivatives known as lipid peroxides.
: Take care.
