Tips for using cooking oil to stay healthy.

Using cooking oil in the right way can help maintain your health. Here are 9 tips for using cooking oil to stay healthy.

1. Choose the right oil.

Choose healthy oils, such as olive oil, canola oil, or sunflower oil which are low in saturated fat and rich in unsaturated fatty acids.

2. Use the right temperature.

Heat the oil to the right temperature before cooking. Oil that is too hot can damage nutrients and increase the risk of harmful compounds forming.

Use a strainer or paper strainer to filter the oil after use. This can remove food debris that can accelerate oil deterioration.

6. Save it in the right place.

Store cooking oil in a cool, dark place to prevent oxidation and the formation of harmful compounds.

7. Pay attention to expiration times.

Check the expiration date of cooking oil and use it before that date to ensure safety and quality.

Place fried food on oil-absorbing paper to reduce the amount of oil absorbed by the food.

9. Pay attention to health.

Pay attention to your health. If you feel uncomfortable after eating fried foods, consider reducing your consumption of oily foods.
