CookingSchools.com, an online directory of culinary schools in New York, discusses the three best oils to use when cooking.
According to a February 17th article posted on The Health Site titled “5 Common Cooking Oils — The Right Way of Using Them,” there are a wide variety of cooking oils, and some are better than others. However, there are a few that are the best to use because they offer a better taste and various health benefits as well.
The article lists five of the most popular cooking oils to use when cooking. However, there are three that stick out. CookingSchools.com discusses its three favorites.
1. Olive Oil- Olive oil is used in many Mediterranean dishes. It has a great taste and it is loaded with healthy monosaturated fats, which can help lower blood pressure and unclog arteries.
2. Sunflower Oil- Like olive oil, sunflower oil is extremely healthy. Sunflower oil helps to lower “bad” LDL cholesterol levels and can be used at all temperatures because it has a high smoking point. This makes it ideal for cooking.
3. Coconut Oil- Coconut oil contains the good fats, such as monosaturated fats and polysaturated fats. It also contains omega 3 fats, which decrease the risk of getting cancer and other disorders. Like sunflower oil it has a high smoking point and can be used in all styles of cooking.
Andrew Girard, a representative from CookingSchools.com, a directory of culinary schools in New York, says that using these cooking oils is important. “These oils can be a more healthy alternative to using butter,” he says. “Unlike other types of oil products, these oils contain healthy fats that protect you from heart problems and cancers. Using oil for cooking cannot only lower the unhealthy calorie count, but it can provide your body with nutrients necessary to live a healthy life. When first starting out, learning to cook with these oils is essential.”
Girard says that the best way to learn how to use these cooking oils is to take a culinary class. “CookingSchools.com is a directory that highlights the best cooking programs in the country,” he says. “Whether you just want to take a few classes or begin a new career in culinary arts, CookingSchools.com is your No. 1 destination.”
