Guide to oils

Olive, sunflower , walnut, rapeseed ... All oils are not equal . They have one thing in common: they contain almost 100 % fat and calories are just as 900 kcal per 100 g . However, their fatty acid content varies and determines their nutritional quality. The human body can manufacture many things but he is unable to make all the fatty acids and must tap into its power .
Each oil is unique

Consume essential fatty acids ( omega 3 and omega 6) is essential for health. They participate in good cell growth (including muscle cells) , brain , the functioning of the cardiovascular system and play an important role in regulating the immune system, inflammatory processes and blood clotting. Each oil has its nutritional characteristics : some are rich in omega 3, omega 6 others . It is also important to maintain a good relationship between fatty acids : the amount of omega 6 does not exceed five times the omega 3 . In addition, some oils ( wheat germ, rapeseed) are very rich in vitamin E , which protects against cellular aging.
Vary , mix !

Prefer virgin oil that is derived from a single cold pressing. It is a pure oil without additives or treatment. Refined oils are heated and treated to be freed from their impurities and stored longer, but thus lose some of their nutritional qualities.
Keep oil at room temperature in a closed bottle , protected from light.
Check the expiry date : oil does not keep indefinitely !
Fried , change the oil every 8 to 10 uses and clean bath residue after use.
