The latest science on the stuff you cook with
The medium-chain triglycerides
in coconut oil can increase energy expenditure by as much
as 5%, which helps you burn more calories through the day.
Rick in healthy fats including omega 3, 6 and 9, rapeseed oil also has a high smoke point – the temperature at which it releases dangerous compounds
– making it perfect for frying.
While olive oil also has plenty of good fats it’s the antioxidants that make it so healthy. One of these, oleocanthal, has similar anti-inflammatory
effects to ibuprofen.
