We are going to show you the best oils that you should use in your kitchen for cooking your meals
1. Rice Bran Oil
This oil is especially recommended to the ones that enjoy of tossing meat in a wok or frying pan. It is maybe not easy to find, but it is really worth searching for it in the markets. This oil is part of numerous Japanese kitchens and the oil is harvested from germ of rice and inner husk. It is a great choice to fry your food with it because the smoking point of this oil is at 500 degrees Fahrenheit.
2. Extra virgin olive oil
This is maybe the best cooking oil ever due to the fact that it contains monounsaturated fats that can lower the ‘’bad’’ cholesterol in the body while increasing the levels of the ‘’good’’ cholesterol. It is also known as EVOO and it is really healthy for our health due to the fact that it can boost the health of your heart because it contains polyphenols and antioxidants.
3. Avocado oil
You should buy avocado oil if you want to splurge on your cooking oil. Extracted from the flesh of the fruit and not the seeds, this oil has burning point of 520 degrees Fahrenheit and because of that it is really good option to use it for preparing your meals not matter what method you are using. As we mentioned previously, monounsaturated fats are really healthy for us, and this oil contains them. Also it contains antioxidant known as lutein that can help to improve the health of your heart. Avocado oil is extremely effective when it comes to speeding up the ability of your body to absorb nutrients from the food you consume. You are not going to miss anything from your meals thanks to the avocado oil. Keep it on a dark and cool place in order to prolong the efficacy of the oil.
4. Canola oil
When cooked, this oil is not going to alter the taste of your meals and it comes with light texture which means that it can withstand heat. Canola oil is great option because it contains healthy ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 (2 to 1) and that is really good if you compare the vegetable oils that are being sold today in the markets.
5. Refined coconut oil
You might get the feeling of the tropics when you use unrefined coconut oil for preparing your meals but make sure you use refined coconut oil because of course it is a healthier option. It might not give you the same aroma to your meal but it has higher hearting point and because of that it is better for sauté and stir-fry. Another reason why you should use refined coconut oil in your kitchen is the fact that the refined coconut oil contains more MCTs or medium-chain triglycerides and they are being ‘transformed’ into energy instead of being ‘transformed’ into fat.
