View Full Version : olive oil turning into a bad fat!
I have heard this a few times - when it's cooked it turns into sat. fat as it's not that stable when heated. Apparently we'd be far better cooking with a more stable unsat fat such as sunflower. I've been cooking with olive oil for so long that I don't know if I could break the habit though!
Thoughts on this anyone?
:no: :no: :no: :no:
Yes, I've seen this a few times.
That's why cold pressed olive oil is so much better for you.
any other nice unsat fats to cook with which don't break the bank? Is ground nut unsat? I don't fancy everything with sunflower oil (maybe that's a snob thing again though)
Oh effing hell! That has really added to my rubbish day :angry:
but i thought it was sooooo good for you, been cooking with it for years. noooooooooooooo! is this definatly true?
Here, its a bit American...
The fatty acid chains in coconut and olive oil are medium-chain fatty acids (MCT's) and they promote weight loss by increasing the body's metabolism to create energy. Coconut oil has become popular lately, because it has been discovered that coconut oil is nature's richest source of MTC's. If you decide to add coconut oil to your diet, it is recommended that you purchase virgin coconut oil (VCO), usually found in health food stores, because it from the best part of the coconut and has not been chemically bleached and heat processed. It is better for cooking than olive oil, because olive oil can be damaged by the heat of cooking, making it similar to the other vegetable oils in the body when cooked.
If it's not one thing it's another.............:no:
I don't mind sunflower oil to cook with but I love OO.
Well that doesn't make it saturated, just no better than any other vegetable oil when it's cooked.
hmmm... jury is still out on this one. we need proof!
oh this is SO depressing if it's true :no: ... will await proof with interest...
