OLIVE OIL FOR INDIAN COOKING
There are two properties of cooking oils that matter most:
Smoke point: The temperature at which the fats begin to break down and turn into smoke.
Oxidative stability: How resistant the fats are to reacting with oxygen.
Olive oil performs well in both categories.
Fat Content: It is important to choose cooking fats that are stable when heated, as some oils can form carcinogenic compounds during cooking. Olive oil is 73% monounsaturated, 11% polyunsaturated and 14% saturated. In other words, the heat-resistant monounsaturated and saturated fats make up 87% of olive oil.
Antioxidants: High in Antioxidants and Vitamin E.
Oxidative Damage: When an oil oxidizes, it reacts with oxygen and forms various harmful compounds. Olive oil holds up well during heating due to its high antioxidant and low polyunsaturated fat content.
Smoke Point : Extra virgin olive oil’s smoke point is between 374–405°F (190–207°C). This makes it a safe
choice for most cooking methods, including most Indian pan frying.
Nutrient Loss: The loss of healthy nutrients in Olive Oil due to overheating is also very minimal.
In conclusion it’s not only an excellent cooking oil, but it is also one of the healthiest. So! try for yourself to use this healthy oil in as many ways as possible and share your wonderful experiences with it.
