Top 3 Healthy Cooking Oils

by DailyHealthPost Editorial

2. Canola Oil

Canola oil is another oil that has low levels of saturated fat but high levels of mono- and polyunsaturated fats. The oil does not have a strong flavor to it, which makes the oil great for a wide variety of foods, especially when retaining certain flavors is important. Canola oil has a high smoke point which adds to its value as a flavor-neutral oil. Canola oil is one of the longest lasting oils you can buy, so it makes for a great purchase if you don’t use a lot of oil often.

3. Flaxseed Oil

Flaxseed oil is a great oil to add to your diet for a variety of reasons. It can be used in cooking, but also adds lots of flavor and healthy benefits to numerous dishes like salads, dips, or even in blended drinks. Recently, Flaxseed oil has been subject to tests that have proven its healthy attributes. The oil has a nutty flavor, but unfortunately does not have a long shelf life. It comes packed with nutrients and fatty acids that our body needs. Consider adding this oil to liven up some of your dishes or snacks with some nutty, heart-healthy flavor.
