In our country, sunflower oil is the most popular because of its neutral taste. However, it is not a healthy option. Not even the best diet foods help us lose weight if they are made with sunflower oil; therefore, even if this oil is the cheapest, on a long term it is more beneficial to use healthier oils.
The following are the best five types:
5. Olive oil
It prevents arteriosclerosis and improves skin texture. We can use it for cooking or baking. It has a unique taste that makes it wonderful in a salad, combined with lemon juice.
4. Canola oil
Regulates cholesterol levels, helps the absorption of vitamin A and it is a great antioxidant. It doesn’t have a strong taste, so it may become your general use oil instead of sunflower oil.
3. Pumpkin seed oil
Because it has a very strong and unique taste, it is recommended mostly for simpler salads only. We don’t need to add a lot of spices to it, as it is bold enough by itself. It has a beneficial effect on prostate problems and alleviates post-menopausal symptoms.
2. Grape seed oil
Again, this oil has a strong taste, so it is mostly recommended to use in salads. However, if you like it, you can use it for cooking meat, because this oil has the smallest amount of burning residues. Consumed frequently, it improves sight.
1. Coconut oil
It is excellent for frying breaded meat and fries, because, even if having a high fat content, this fat transforms into energy in a short time once it arrives in the digestive system. In contrast to its virgin version, the strained version has a neutral flavor. The lauryn acid that can be found only in coconut oil besides mother’s milk makes this oil a great immune strengthener.
