Fats & Oils
Unrefined is the first thing to look for. If not on the bottle STOP. You don’t want it.
LOOK FOR – Unrefined: this is el primo. When it is on the bottle continue to look for:
Extra Virgin - an excellent choice. Generally the fullest flavor and aroma and the best quality. Or
Virgin - a very good choice still very aromatic and flavorful. Or
Cold Pressed - good quality and good to cook with. Or
Expeller Pressed - decent quality and ok to cook with.
Oils to avoid have the words:
Refined - very bad, even though the label may say extra virgin, virgin, cold pressed or expeller processed.
Pure - very bad even though the label may say extra virgin, virgin, cold pressed or expeller processed.
Polyunsaturated - stay away from these oils, they are very bad not because they are polyunsaturated but that is all they are.
Vegetable oil - a term that allows almost any chemical they want to use including solvents and deodorizers.
Shortening - most generally made of rancid oils. Nickel is used in process of hydrogenation.
Margarine – the melting point is well above normal body temperature and cannot be used in the body.
Hydrogenated oil or partially hydrogenated - most generally made of rancid oils. Nickel is used in processing of hydrogenation.
Canola oil – whether found in a health food store or not is a genetically created (GMO) plant from the rape seed which is very toxic to humans. NO canola or supermarket oils.
