For those who start a diet, there are a lot of information that say we should eat boiled food only and should not eat fried foods at all. Should it be like that?
Reduction of cooking oil will reduce the calories into our bodies because 1 gram of fat = 9 calories. High enough and can make us fat. But that does not mean we should not consume cooking oil at all.
Our body actually needs fat in moderation which can be obtained from cooking oil, but there are many kinds of cooking oil. Which is healthier for our bodies?
Fats are categorized into two main sections.
The first is bad fat. Saturated Fat and Trans Fat are bad fats.
Saturated Fat increases total blood cholesterol and especially increase LDL. Trans Fat increases LDL and lower HDL.
The second is good fat. Monounsaturated Fat and Polyunsaturated Fat are good fats.
Monounsaturated Fat: lowering total blood cholesterol, especially LDL and increase HDL
Polyunsaturated Fat: lower total blood cholesterol, especially LDL
After seeing the above, we know that we have to choose oils with monounsaturated and polyunsaturated content of more than a group of bad fat.
Here I provide a comparison chart listing the various kinds of oil that we can use so that we can choose more wisely.
From this table we can see canola oil for frying is the best. But do not cook the oil too hot, and do not use cooking oil repeatedly to prevent its damage.
