Heating oils beyond a point transforms them into trans fat.


Posted by Swati S.

This is something I found recently. There are certain oils that should not be heated beyond their smoke point. If they are, then they lose their flavor and worse, they are transformed into trans fat, which is bad for the heart. So you should use different oils for different purpose. For example, I like sunflower oil for frying and general-purpose use. While I use safflower oil for baking, sautéing or anything else that does not require a high temperature.
