Cooking Oil Facts

We probably all know by now that the unhealthiest fats are the trans fats, also labeled as saturated fats, because they are the culprit for developing high cholesterol, diabetes and poor heart health. You can find the percentage which is in any food product by reading the facts on the nutrition label.

Olive oil is an excellent and tasty substitute for butter and even though it is higher in calories, it is much healthier. This is due to the high amount of good fats, also referred to as monounsaturated fats, compared to all the saturated ones which are found in butter.

Olive oil doesn't lend itself very well for baking and it is perfectly fine to use butter; the body does need a certain amount of fat for absorbing vitamins and keeping skin, hair, heart and everything else healthy as well. The recommendation given by the American Heart Association is that the daily intake of fats does not exceed 1% of your daily calorie intake.

Make sure to store oils in a dark place with the lid on tight and preferably keep them away from heat sources, because this can cause the oil to go rancid. When stored well, they can last from six up to twelve months.

Some may not think twice or worry about what they eat, drink, or subject their bodies to. They may not be aware that the body is another gift from God and should also be handled and taken care of to His glorification!

1 Corinthians 6:19
Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own?
