Today I wanted to share a list of the oils for cooking for best results.  Let’s be clear on something.  Fat does not make one fat!  We need certain fats for good health.  Essential fatty acids are essential because the body does not make them.

The body needs fat for survival as fat performs tasks like the formation of cell membranes and the synthesis of fundamental chemicals.  Fat also helps to transport the fat-soluble vitamins, A, D, E, & K.  Fat helps to make one feel full and satisfies.  It adds flavor to food as well.

Fat is used for fuel.

Body fat (adipose tissue) is the body’s main energy reserve and primary source of fuel for extended exercise.

OK, so we must take in some fat daily.  Here are the suggestions from Paul Chek –How to Eat, Move and Be Healthy! – on which oils for cooking are best for certain temperatures. FYI- This is a book that is a MUST if you want to create positive change in your health, fitness, and life. Using unrefined organic oils is a must.

Oils For Cooking Temperatures

  • No heat (up to 120 degrees F/ 49 degrees C) – Flax Seed Oil, Borage Oil, Hemp Seed Oil, Cod Liver Oil
  • Low heat (up to 212 degrees F/100 degrees C) – Use for Baking – Safflower Oil, Sunflower Oil, Pumpkin Oil
  • Medium heat ( 325 degrees F/163 degrees C) – Light Sauteing – Sesame Oil, Pistachio Oil, Hazelnut Oil, Olive Oil
  • High heat (375 degrees F/190 degrees C) – Frying or Browning – Coconut Oil, Ghee (clarified butter), Palm Oil, Lard

Additional points to:

  • When baking bread, muffins at temperatures around 325 degrees F/163 degrees C, the moisture keeps the inside temperature under 212 degrees F/100 degrees C
  • When frying always put oil in a cold pan and turn heat up gradually

So there you have the list of what are the healthiest cooking oil.  The oils and best temperatures for the best results with the fats.  Enjoy cooking and using the best oils for cooking for your health and well-being.

    Oh this is good. Someone was just talking about only heating olive oil to a certain temp, but i do a lot of cooking with olive oil so I'm confused.

    This is such an important post. Fats should be eaten in abundance, but very important not to eat rancid, or destroyed fats. Thanks for setting it out so clearly Wendy

    That is a good list Wendy! I also like that you are pointing out that fat is good for us and we don't get fat that way! in my house we eat mostly olive oil and butter. Sometimes flax seed too, but thanks to you we will not use it for cooking any more, only sallads. Thanks! :-).
    ps. Are you aware that the link doesn't work? ds.

    Wendy – Awesome post.  I've never really been one to shy away from oils (except deep fry oil at fast food joints.)! The list you posted is helpful. I tend to forget which oils & the temperatures!
