Cooking oil 

It is known to everyone that, unsaturated fats are better than saturated fats, and unsaturated fats that contain more monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats are better for our daily healthy diet. Now we just have to know that which oil contain how much of these fats and we are good to go.

    Let's compare a few oils and see(just check the nutrition facts labeled on the bottle or check online), to start with everyone's favorite-

1. Olive oil (1 tbsp)

saturated fat- 1.9 g
polyunsaturated fat- 1.4 g
monounsaturated fat- 10 g

2. Canola oil(1 tbsp)

saturated fat- 1 g
polyunsaturated fat- 4 g
monounsaturated fat- 9 g

3. Mustard oil(1 tbsp)

saturated fat- 1.6 g
polyunsaturated fat- 3 g
monounsaturated fat- 8 g

4. Palm oil(1 tbsp)

         In the nutrition facts label, you may also find different things like calories and total fat. Well every oil of 1 tbsp have different calorie value and total fat, but we are not checking for calories and fat, for now, that's another topic to discuss on, for now, we are just concerned about the right oil and the good things about it after which we can see for other things.

 Previously, I could never understand what oil to eat, why some fats are good and why some are not. Found an article in which it stated that heating any oil to its smoke point can burn aways its good qualities. Well, in any way the oil cooks in high heat. I thought it was difficult to know such vast things on oil how to eat, what to eat, how to cook etc. So I decided to limit my knowledge to what's the best oil I can take for a healthy life. I personally use extra virgin oil for cooking, baking, and dressing as well. Just eat healthily and stay fit.
