Healthy Edible Oils

Lately, our focus has been on the benefits of oils.

So, we have put together this handy guide.

To help you get to know your Sesame from your Sunflower oils.

Edible Oils

Canola oil

Pressed from Canola or Rapeseed

Benefits: Canola oil has a unique fatty acid profile consisting of low saturated fat and high mono-saturated oil.

It also contains Omega 3 fatty acids, which are beneficial for reducing coronary heart diseases.

Edible uses: Canola can be used at high heat for frying or sautéing. It is mild and the perfect oil for salads.

Coconut oil

Extracted from the husk of the coconut.

Benefits: There is a myth that coconut oil is rich in saturated fat that is bad for you.

However, recent research has shown that it is composed of medium-chain fatty acids, which help protect the heart against disease.

Edible uses: Perfect for adding flavour to curries, omelettes, and stir-fries.

Sesame oil

Extracted from sesame seeds

Benefits: Full of lovely mono and polyunsaturated fatty acids; this is one of the healthy edible oils that reduce bad cholesterol.

Sesame also contains Antioxidants and Vitamins E and B, which help promote cellular renewal and healthy skin.

Olive oil

Pressed from olives

Benefits: A concentrated source of mono-saturated fats.

This oil has been linked with preventing cardiovascular disease and is also rich in Vitamin E, which helps maintain optimal immune response and healthy skin.

Edible Benefits:
Along with canola oil, olive oil should be your primary cooking oil, thanks to all of its lovely, healthy benefits.

Cooking with different oils is a subject we discuss in greater detail here.

Safflower oil

This oil is pressed from the Safflower plant’s seeds, a sunflower family member.

Benefits: Safflower oil is extremely beneficial for heart health, as it is rich in polyunsaturated fats.

It also strengthens the immune system and is a rich source of Vitamin E, a healthy skin component.

Soy oil

This oil is pressed from soya beans – lookout for the organic, non-GMO variety when shopping for this oil.

Benefits: One of the healthy edible oils rich in Antioxidants and Essential Fatty Acids; this oil is really healthy as it doesn’t contain much-saturated fat and has no cholesterol.

Edible benefits: It has a neutral flavour to interfere with other flavours in your dish.

Sunflower oil

Pressed from sunflower seeds

Benefits: Sunflower oil is low in saturated fat and supplies more Vitamin E than any other vegetable oil.

Edible benefits: The oil performs well when roasting or frying, but its mild taste means it is just as good in baking or salads.

Conclusion

As you can see, several oils are available, all of which are wonderful examples of healthy superfoods that are great for your skin, that are sourced directly from nature.

We recommend incorporating foods that contain monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats into your diet, a strategy that will help your heart and improve your quality of life.
