1. Are refined vegetable oils healthy?
Whether an oil is healthy depends mainly on its raw materials, whether it uses high temperature, and whether it uses chemical substances to deodorize and decolorize. Raw material for Refining Vegetable Oils (peanut, corn, etc.). ) are easily corrupted, and there are many allergens and toxins in them, which must be treated with high temperature and chemically purified.
Therefore, refined vegetable oil is vegetable oil that is repeatedly squeezed from plant seeds using industrial chemicals and high temperature conditions. Refined vegetable oils are very common, such as canola oil, soybean oil, peanut oil, sunflower oil, corn oil, etc.
In fact, when these oils first entered the market, they were not used for human consumption, but as industrial oil or industrial raw materials. Later, they were favored by an entrepreneur who was obsessed with fame and fortune and ignored people’s health. Without any scientific research, he directly declared that animal oil that people have eaten for thousands of years is harmful, and refined vegetable oil is the healthiest. Since then, a food and catering economic chain with “refined vegetable oil” as the core has been formed, and people seem to be inseparable from refined vegetable oil.
So I very much hope that everyone can read this article carefully, because eating habits cannot be changed just by changing them, a certain understanding is the premise.
2. What is healthy oil?
The answer is: cold-pressed animal oil and vegetable oil are healthy fats.
First introduce animal oil: such as lard, butter, and duck oil are the oils that people make at home using the fat-rich parts of animals. They are the same oils our ancestors used all the time and are very nutritious. For example, lard is not only suitable for cooking, but also moistens the lungs and intestines, and is rich in vitamin D and other trace elements.
In addition, there are coconut oil, olive oil, walnut oil, camellia oil and so on. They are nutrient-rich vegetable oils obtained from the fruit of the plant by removing the core and shell and then pressing directly at lower temperatures. Their processing technology is simple, does not require chemical deodorization and decolorization or high-temperature repeated pressing and refining, and is not classified as refined vegetable oil.
Some people may say that I usually use refined vegetable oil and I don’t have any health problems.
I have to remind you here that food itself is complex, and so is the body. If a certain food is bad for your health, it may not show immediately and make you uncomfortable, but over time, it will cause some slight changes in your body, such as cellulite around the abdomen, acne (acne), irritability, emotional instability, etc. Everyone has different symptoms. Even if you have these symptoms, you don’t connect them to the foods and oils you eat. You just feel sick and need medication.
That way, your health problems are never fixed and you never feel like there is something wrong with the food you eat.
Regarding oil, people have traditionally advocated a “low-oil diet”, thinking that eating too much oil is not good for the body, especially cardiovascular problems. If you eat less of this problematic oil and your body recovers well, you will naturally have no symptoms in a short period of time. But after you know their harm, do you still want to continue to “cut” your body with refined vegetable oil again and again? Please take good care of your body and give it “good oil”!
