So many oils to choose from
There are soooo any different oils to choose from now days, how do I know which one is right for me?
It really depends on what you are looking for in an oil – a saturated fat, a polyunsaturated fat or a mono unsaturated fat. Below is a chart that compares the nutritional value of different fats and oils. Saturated and trans fats raise cholesterol levels and are not heart-healthy. Polyunsaturated and monounsaturated are considered the ‘good’ fats. Oils high in monounsaturated fats are particularly heart healthy because they lower LDL levels, the ‘bad’ kind of cholesterol. Replacing the fats and oils that are higher in saturated and trans fats with those higher in monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats is good for your health.
