Is it useful to fry in olive oil?

(ORDO NEWS) — Olive oil is very useful and most suitable for the human body. Therefore, it is not customary to fry food on it.

They prefer to use it as a salad dressing. But it turns out that olive oil is also suitable for frying.

For example, the USDA recommends using olive oil for deep frying. Are you surprised? In fact, there is a reasonable explanation for this. Only first cold-pressed oil is suitable for deep-frying.

All because the temperature regime for deep-frying should be in the range of 350-370 F.

Sunflower oil has a smoke point of 250-300 F, and olive oil has a smoke point of 350-400 F. That is, in theory, it is more suitable for cooking.

Try frying your own fish or asparagus in olive oil for starters. For the first experiments with flavors, it is not necessary to use a deep fryer.

And then, when you’ve tasted it, you can cook your favorite deep-fried potatoes or shrimp for the whole family.

Olive oil of the first cold press is not as harmful when heated as sunflower oil.

Carcinogens are not formed in it under the influence of high temperature, and useful vitamins are not destroyed. It actually does not affect the taste either.

Benefits of olive oil

Doctors and nutritionists recommend adding olive oil to the diet. It is easily absorbed, rich in vitamins and monosaturated fatty acids.

It can be used to moisturize the skin and hair, drink on an empty stomach to cleanse the body, etc.

Regular use of this product leads to a decrease in harmful cholesterol and an increase in useful cholesterol in the body.

Therefore, you can safely add oil to side dishes (rice, pasta), salads. And of course, if you fry food on it, it will become many times more useful.
