Good and Bad Cooking Oils
Oils are in a lot of packaged food products - so you should know exactly what you are putting into your body.
With today’s Standard American Diet and "fat is bad" messaging; our consumption of low quality, high PUFA oils (vegetable and seed oils) has skyrocketed.
PUFA oils can be dangerous as they are unstable. They can become highly inflammatory, which contributes to just about every chronic disease especially when you over consume them, which is far too easy in today's packaged food. High PUFA Oils are used in almost every packaged food in the grocery store.
There are good oils and bad oils.
To get less total PUFA,
- Avoid high PUFA industrial oils: canola oil, grapeseed oil, corn oil, soybean oil, vegetable oil, cottonseed oil, margarine, flaxseed oil, sesame oil, and sunflower oil.
- Look for low PUFA, less processed oils: coconut oil, avocado oil, grass-fed ghee, olive oil, and grass-fed animal fats.
