On February 27, Natalie Sexenian, the marketing manager for Bellucci Premium, responds to an article posted by India Health describing how to choose a type of oil for cooking.
According to India Health, oil is usually the first ingredient you use to cook with. Almost all meals have some kind of oil in them, for moisture or taste and most people don’t know how to determine what type of oil to use for each dish reports India Health.
India Health reports that oils contain fatty acids with different types of cholesterol which can be good or bad for your body. Oils also have a smoke point, meaning the temperature at which it can burn, and contain variations of omega fatty acids. These three factors are the major variables in deciding what type of oil to use for cooking.
Sexenian said olive oil is an extremely healthy oil to cook with. “Olive oil has a high amount of monosaturated and polysaturated fats,” he said. “That’s one of the reasons why it’s so healthy for your heart. It reduces the amount of bad cholesterol in the body and cuts the risk to heart disease. While it has a medium smoking point, it might not be suitable to cook things at high temperatures. However, olive oil can be used for salads, sautéing, making pasta or lasagna, grilling frittata, and other dishes.”
As marketing manager of Tuscan olive oil company Bellucci Premium, Sexenian said there are many recipes that can be adapted to use olive oil if you want to remain heart healthy. “If you want to make a change in your eating habits, start using olive oil to cook,” she said. “There are so many options!”
