Fresh high-quality extra virgin olive oil is one of the healthiest foods. Why? It’s a reasonably stable oil that’s rich in polyphenols; plant nutrients that provide antioxidants including Oleic acid, which can help fight inflammation.
I’m often asked which is the best oil for cooking? With so many oils available on the supermarket shelves, it can be very confusing knowing which one to choose to cook with. Should you be using butter or should you choose a vegetable-based oil, such as sunflower oil, instead? How about Ghee, coconut oil or olive oil?
