Think about it. Oil has been one of the most basic cooking ingredients in history. Preparing food using oil has been a part of the human landscape for so long and used among so many races that trying to identify an inventor is utterly impossible. All of the oldest examples of oil presses are located in the Mediterranean basin, the Middle East, and South Asia. Per the Smithsonian’s website, The Oldest Olive Oil ever Found Is 8,000 Years Old, which means that oil pressing predates written history by a wide margin.
Not all fats are bad for the body.
Generally, oils and fats with a high proportion of saturated fat are less healthy than those with higher poly and mono unsaturated fats. Polyunsaturated fats can help lower cholesterol, omega-3 polyunsaturates may help protect against heart disease and omega-6 fatty acids may help with growth and brain function. Monounsaturated fats can also help lower cholesterol if they replace saturated fats. Monounsaturated fats may also help decrease the risk of breast cancer and rheumatoid arthritis pain.
Another factor in considering which kind of cooking oil to use is it’s smoke point. The smoke point of an oil or fat is the temperature at which it starts to burn and degrade – oils and fats with a higher smoke point are more suited to frying food than those with lower smoke points, which are more suited for cold use – such as in salad dressings.
Fat type proportions and smoke points vary for the same type of oil depending on how it has been processed and/or produced. How oil is stored and used also affects it’s qualities – as oils are reused, in deep frying for example, they degrade.
Make heart healthy food: Depending on the kind of oil that you use in preparing your food, the end product can either be healthy or harmful.
