Cooking with olive oil......(or any oils with particular smoke points really)
I've heard so many conflicting things, some say you shouldn't heat it at all, others say only to a certain point, where's the truth? I'm not always sure.......should I just use it for cold meals and at the end of cooked ones, or can I use it to fry or bake occasionally?

Heat it at all, but only to a certain point, it will be more healthy(using it for cold meals is the healthiest thing anyway)

That's kinda what I was thinking, but hard to tell sometimes with these things. That and hard to know what to put in place of it, particularly in baked dishes. I suppose coconut oil would work as it does for frying, but not sure if I'd wanna use it for every substitution.

Butter heats ok with no risks like coconut oil doesn't it? I suppose I can always just replace with that.....found a website that lists the differences in subbing one for the other, so may just do that if a recipe calls for olive oil.

Peanut oil works well for cooking at high temps.

The nutrients in olive oil degrade with heat and high heat wrecks it.

Yeah, I've heard about peanut oil too, and a few others, but mainly that and coconut oil, which I've already been beginning to use.

Ok so then even a little heat would harm it sounds like, let alone high.

At this point I am looking more and more into baking/frying just with coconut oil, lard if I could get it and butter.....my one concern with butter though would be heating it...as if I was gonna make a move to total raw dairy which I would like to eventually.....would risk damaging the benefits coming from the butter in the process, but I am not sure. Trying to figure out good ways to cook with raw dairy as a whole really.

God it's hard to eat properly lol, gotta be aware of so much even just in preparing foods.

Most heated oils turn into trans fat

Extra Virgin and Virgin Olive Oil are not good for frying use Pommace Olive Oil for this.

Isn't that heavily refined though? Not sure I would trust it.

Yes it is.

Butter will burn at quite a low heat so to get around this clarify it first the Indians do this and call it Ghee. Also Sesame is very good for frying :)

Grape seed oil or coconut oil are good for high heat cooking. I prefer grape seed oil over coconut oil because you cant really taste it. Coconut oil makes food taste like coconuts.

That's a great tip, thanks! I may wanna do that going forward.......wouldn't that make it more or less non dairy too? I say that because......the milk solids come out of it from looking at it. So that would take away the risk of harming the dairy aspect right? lol

I don't mind that too much, but guess for some things it could be subbed in. I need to make a list here I think lol, of good and bad.

Try coconut oil. It can be used for cooking with no harmful effects. Best and safest oil for cooking, hands down.

If you look at my earlier posts, I have mentioned I am starting to use it, just trying to figure out other options as well.
