    Which Is The Healthiest Oil?

    Coconut
    The fat in this oil is predominantly saturated but being from a plant, it is cholesterol-free. Use sparingly.

    Corn oil
    The fat in corn oil is predominantly polyunsaturated which makes it healthy. It is also a good source of Vitamin E. The refined oil is
    usually a dark yellow colour and may be used as a salad or cooking oil.

    Sunflower
    Sunflower is one of the richest oil seed sources of Vitamin E and is derived from the seed of the plant. The wild sunflower originated in southern US and Mexico, where it was found growing in the wild. The Spaniards took it to Spain in the 16th century from where the cultivation spread throughout Europe. The raw oil is light amber with a distinct odour. The refined oil is pale yellow. Cold pressed sunflower oil is a good option.

    Safflower
    It is the richest oil seed source of polyunsaturated fats. The safflower plant from which it is extracted belongs to the thistle family. It has the highest linoleic acid content among commercially produced oils. When refined, it is the lightest coloured oil and is considered the healthiest commercial brand.

    Olive
    This, a monounsaturated fat, has been found to reduce cholesterol while eliminating artery-clogging fats. Use it for Indian food but not for deep-frying as it has a low smoking point and most Indian food needs high heat.

    Mustard
    This is an unsaturated oil extracted from the seeds of the mustard plant. It has a high level of erucic acid, so use sparingly. Peanut oil is obtained from the nut’s kernel. It is monounsaturated and is an excellent source of Vitamin E. A typical peanut contains 45 percent to 55 percent oil. So next time you eat a handful of peanuts, know that 50 percent of that is oil! Rice Bran It is a mixture of polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats and is extracted from the bran of the rice grain and contains antioxidants.
