Cooking with oil

Over time there have been so many debates about which oil is best for you when it comes to cooking. Some people will state that olive oil is better for you than vegetable or sunflower oil when cooking with it, but this simply isn’t the case. Olive oil is great on salads and for dipping bread but not as good for you when cooking so it is at a higher heat.

Coconut oil is a big one to recently hit the headlines. Coconut oil boosts several advantages of sunflower and veg oil and is being seen as the new healthy option. Still there is a lot of research that needs doing in to coconut oil but one of the big advantages is that the liver can break it down and convert it straight in to energy and not fat. It is also said to improve your immunity system plus other benefits.
