There are so many oils on the market and they all have very different nutrient profiles. So, which are the best to cook with?
To gain a better understanding of this we need to consider the following factors:
- Production method/extraction process
- Polyphenol content
- Alpha-tocopherol (vitamin E) content
- Fatty acid profile
- Trans fatty acids
- Heat stability
Spoiler alert: Extra Virgin Olive Oil is the reigning King/Queen!!
