The Healthiest Cooking Oils, According to a Registered Dietitian Olive Oil. The Mediterranean Diet has been linked to weight loss and a reduction in disease risk, plus a boost in Avocado Oil. This oil, derived from the flesh of pressed avocados, has a. 10 of the Healthiest Cooking Oils, Explained 1. Canola oil. I don’t know about you, but I grew up thinking canola oil was one step away from propane—AKA, really 2. Extra-virgin olive oil.

Lisa Sasson, clinical associate professor of nutrition at NYU Steinhardt, is obsessed with 3. Pure olive. The 10 Best and Worst Oils For Your Health Olive oil. Nutrition and cooking experts agree that one of the most versatile and healthy oils to cook with and eat is Coconut oil.

Depending on who you ask, coconut oil should either be avoided or embraced in moderation. The main point of Vegetable. The Science of Cooking Oils: Which Are Really the Healthiest? Selecting oils.

So what do the findings of the report suggest about how you should use cooking oils? The main points are Avocado oil. Avocado oil is rich in monounsaturated fat (70 percent of the fats in the oil are monounsaturated. Here’s an alphabetical list of common cooking oils that contain more of the “better-for-you” fats and less saturated fat.

Canola Corn Olive Peanut Safflower Soybean Sunflower. When it comes to high heat cooking, coconut oil is your best choice. Over 90% of the fatty acids in it are saturated, which makes it very resistant to heat. This oil is semi-solid at room.

So, here’s a tip that will make your cooking healthier and save you money at the same time: Save your extra virgin olive oil for off-heat uses such as salad dressings and choose a refined olive oil for sautéing vegetables. But Smoke Point Is Only Half the Story. Avoiding smoking oil isn’t all you need to worry about. Pressed from the rapeseed plant, canola oil is similar to vegetable oil in flavor, color, smoke point, and usage qualities. Both canola and vegetable oil.

Some healthy forms of polyunsaturated fats are: flaxseed oil, walnut oil, and macadamia nut oil. And, we always want to stay away from processed polyunsaturated fats such as canola oil, corn oil, soybean oil, margarine, and vegetable oils. These processed oils wreak havoc on the body and should be avoided entirely.

Olive oil is one of the healthiest fats. It’s resistant to heat because, like animal fats, it’s high in monounsaturated fatty acids. These have only one double bond, making them relatively stable.

List of related literature:

Testing of olive oil reveals anywhere from 60 to 90 percent of the olive oils sold in American grocery stores and served in restaurants are adulterated with cheap, oxidized, omega-6 vegetable oils, such as sunflower oil or peanut oil, or non-human-grade olive oils, which are harmful to health in a number of ways.

  • Hey, what about flax oil? Sesame oil? And do animal fats oxidize and cause free radicals like cooking oils? I use a lot of bacon fat hehe

  • Its expensive I’am told but, here comes the carbs, Fried potatoes with duck fat. I am going to be the guinea pig, and try it.I can always go back to carnivore.

  • Dr Berry, thanks for all your great videos. What about chicken fat for frying in? I make dog food for my 2 dogs out of chicken quarters and always have lots of chicken fat left that I’ve been freezing. I refrigerate the broth and it solidifies on the topthen I just scrape it off the top and freeze.

  • What about refined coconut oil, which has no coconut flavor? Is there something about the refinement that makes the oil not as good as unrefined coconut oil? Some recipes need a more neutral cooking oil and avocado oil is pretty pricey. Thanks for all the info!

  • Very informative. Great to really have the different types of oil used and explained how they should be used. Curious, you wear made in MNL, but no accent, so you are “mistos”? Especially your name, not a typical Pinoy name. But I’ll watch your posting.

  • Wooah! been thinking about this, this is very informative! Please upload other videos relative to healthful tips like this. More power!:)

  • Thank you for your videos, they’re very clear and thorough. How would you rate goose fat or cold-pressed rapeseed oil? It’s my understanding that ‘cold pressed’ is the purest form of oil, given no heat is used to speed the process, and therefore less likely to damage the oil.

  • I use coconut oil. However I can’t convince my mother to use it. Instead she uses canola oil. She thinks its healthy. I wonder where she got the idea. My family thinks poly fats are good while saturated fats are bad because they said it will solidify in the blood vessels and cause heart attack. I’m not a doctor so they won’t believe me.

  • Any thoughts on Sunflower seed oil and Sunflowers seeds?
    A couple of the Keto gurus seem to say the Sunflower seed oil and sunflower seeds are healthy for you. (especially organic)
    Thanks on the tip on high oleic acid content.
    I am impressed by your integrity and honesty!!
    Thanks Doc!

  • Watch this video to the end and prosper from her research. Fake fats are garbage. I rarely eat in a restaurant and when I do I ask about whether oil is used in the food choice I’m selecting. If yes, I choose something else. Fortunately there’s nearly always a steak offered and I can ask for plain vegets, unless actual butter.

  • p.s. if canola oil is cold pressed and organic (non-GMO) it sure would open up lots of food options for me. I eat Whole Foods salads and some of their tastiest looking foods use that. They use it in everything…. rarely is olive oil used.
    thanks Doc

  • Pretty odd that your advice goes directly against the American heart association and Harvard university’s recommendations, saturated and trans fats both have been proven to increase LDL cholesterol increasing your risk of atherosclerosis, canola is low in both saturated and trans fats and even has a significant amounts of Omega 3 fatty acids which also have an anti-inflammatory effect in the body, decrease the growth of plaque in the arteries, and aid in thinning blood.

  • Thank you Erwan, I honestly wanted to know what kind of cooking oils is best to cook with because I’m trying to be more aware of what i eat & then I see your video on my notifications so I appreciate the time you put into making this
    Btw I wish I had a boyfriend who knows how to cook as good as you, I wouldn’t mind if he made better dishes than I would haha

  • What about extra within rapeseed.. I though I am doing better the oils oil for years now.. it’s not processed. Could you tslk about the processed vs cold pressed oils differeces

  • We just bought what I thought was a great mayonnaise made with sunflower seed oil. Came up zero carb and high fat. Too bad. It is tasty!

  • Use: Saturated oils for cooking, can tolerate/is stable at higher heat
    Coconut oil (extra virgin)
    Avocado oil (higher smoke oil)
    MCT oil

    Avoid: Unsaturated oils with lower smoke points, less stable, form free radicals
    Vegetable oils (polyunsaturated fats, least stable in heat when cooking)
    Olive oil good oil but use for non-cooking purposes
    Canola oil controversial (highly refined, linked to inflammation)
    Soybean oil
    Corn oil

  • No PROCEESED OIL is healthy PERIOD. You want olive oil eat olives. Nature doesn’t make mistakes. Its WHOLE FOODS for a reason. Man takes perfection and fucks it up.

  • Love ❤️ quick Q — what about when people say not to cook with olive oil because of what happens to the molecules when it gets hot..??

  • Great vid. To add to the wonders and countless benefits of virgin coconut oil, they now use it to reverse Alzheimer’s symptoms and epilepsy, promote healthy testosterone levels, kill harmful microbes, help burn more fat, reduce craving, among others. And it’s actually good for the heart despite being high in saturated fats it helps increase good HDL cholesterol and help convert bad LDL cholesterol to less harmful form, which can personally attest to.

  • Here’s the Fats and Oil guide I use: https://balancedbites.com/fats-which-to-eat-and-which-to-ditch/ and for cooking: https://balancedbites.com/content/best-cooking-fats/. I try to avoid purchasing processed food without stable oils. If consumers demand better quality, suppliers will make better quality.

  • Thank you so much for the video! It is so informative! I use the grape seed oil. I’ve just checked it’s smoke point and I am good��

  • Vegetable oils are everywhere. Any study on the general population has no meaning since everyone is probably eating tons of veg oils without even knowing. Having a questionnaire on this means that people who claim to eat more veg oils are probably those who add it to salads or something like that. So you likely have a huge healthy user bias here. Plus no control group whatsoever since everyone gets some amount of veg oils anyway. This is terrible “science”.

  • Wooah! been thinking about this, this is very informative! Please upload other videos relative to healthful tips like this. More power!:)

  • Thanks for all of this information! I am also a huge fan of avocado oil! Can you share your thoughts on using refined, cold-pressed coconut oil for cooking when you don’t want that nutty taste? Do you think it’s okay for those instances? Or would you just recommend skipping it and using avocado oil in place?

  • Hi Ken. We have a farm here in the UK that makes cold-pressed rapeseed oil. It’s delicious and, I believe, not factory-made. Does this fall into the bad category with the rest of the seed oils? Martin

  • I have been doing Keto for 24 months now and lost 120 lbs at age 73. I read a lot from the Keto Community and am convinced that 80% (or more) of the benefits come from a small part of the recommendations (ie. eat low carb) and all the other “food quality” replayed recommendations will add much smaller benefit at the margin. The danger is that newbies think it is all required, are overwhelmed and don’t do anything as a result. That is tragic imo and so we need to separate health optimization from health improvement available to so many who don’t have the time, interest or money to pursue the former.

  • where does ghee fall in all of this? Is it a good option for baking/sautéing or does coconut oil reign supreme for these purposes?

  • Great vid. To add to the wonders and countless benefits of virgin coconut oil, they now use it to reverse Alzheimer’s symptoms and epilepsy, promote healthy testosterone levels, kill harmful microbes, help burn more fat, reduce craving, among others. And it’s actually good for the heart despite being high in saturated fats it helps increase good HDL cholesterol and help convert bad LDL cholesterol to less harmful form, which can personally attest to.

  • Yeah….i wish it were that simple……..experts are split on the subject, some saying coconut oil is the worst you can eat………others say it quite okay……this kind of testimony is commonplace….from dieticians, the mayo clinic and other health organisations.. “Coconut oil is extracted from coconut flesh, leaving behind the fibre, carbohydrate and protein, the extracted oil is pure fat. As we know, there are many different types of fats. The two major kinds are saturated fats (unhealthy fats that are linked with high blood cholesterol) and unsaturated fats (healthy fats that can reduce your risk of heart disease). Saturated fats make up 92% of coconut oil – a higher percentage than butter. Saturated fats tend to increase your LDL (unhealthy) cholesterol in the blood and should be eaten sparingly to minimise your risk of developing heart disease.

    One of the main arguments put forward by those who support coconut oil is that the saturated fat in coconut oil behaves differently to typical saturated fats, preventing any negative effects on health. The evidence states it’s not that simple. In fact, a recent report from the American Heart Association, based on a recent review of clinical trials, advises against using coconut oil due to its high saturated fat content.

    Coconut oil is particularly high in one type of saturated fatty acid (the building blocks of fats) called lauric acid. This type of fatty acid tends to mimic healthy unsaturated fats by boosting HDL (good) cholesterol. This may make it less concerning than other saturated fats. However, studies show that with the consumption of coconut oil, whilst healthy HDL cholesterol levels appear to rise, so too does total cholesterol and unhealthy LDL cholesterol in the blood!1

  • note: as to comments below when tossing oils.. Not down the sink.. Not in a bottle.. mix oil with something,,,flour, dirt.. cat litter… or it just makes a mess for the garbage man. Bottles burst = oily mess for him to clean up. Don’t mess with the cook or the garbage man.

  • can you include the resources that you used? I would like to dive more into this subject especially with cooking oils to avoid. i’ve seen canola oil getting a bad rep on the internet lately and am curious where it stems from.

  • Love ❤️ quick Q — what about when people say not to cook with olive oil because of what happens to the molecules when it gets hot..??

  • My endocrinologist told my yes it’s true canola oil causes inflammation. Then it all made sense, I would get an itch in my ears because of water under the skin (inflammation) and causing them to itch. It all started when I started using canola oil but you never think that they might be connected.

  • Hi. Can you please explain how canola oil is harmful? I didn’t find anything horrific in my research. And the only negative thing I found about soybean oil is that too much of it can cause a larger liver..? What about palm oil..?

  • Watch Dr. Berry’s latest video on Macular Degeneration on how industrial seed oils (and the processed foods that contain them) are causing damage to our eyes. Scary stuff.

  • Only oil I ever use is avocado and olive, and then I don’t use them everyday. I am sure in a little while from now, another survey will come out stating the exact opposite, just like the ones on coffee and eggs.

  • Kait-what do you and people here think might be the best foods/diet to eat to slow, stop, or even reverse the progression of atherosclerosis? Got a goodly amount over here and I’m casting a wide net trying to learn as much a I can about this. Thanks anybody,:)

  • It has just been reported in the British press that Dr Karin Michels of Harvard University has said in a German lecture that coconut oil is “pure poison”. What are your thoughts on that? I remember such people in the seventies saying that butter was poison, when it certainly wasn’t.

  • I will never look at a vat full of 375 degree seed oil the same way again. What are those fries soaking in? My goodness! And this is what we are told is the “good” oil. Good grief…

  • I use coconut oil. However I can’t convince my mother to use it. Instead she uses canola oil. She thinks its healthy. I wonder where she got the idea. My family thinks poly fats are good while saturated fats are bad because they said it will solidify in the blood vessels and cause heart attack. I’m not a doctor so they won’t believe me.

  • I use red palm oil and coconut oil… When im cooking. When eating out at restaurant i have no control of what they are using. Eating out is a norm here in Malaysia. It is also cheaper. Damn…

  • Videos like these and a lot of reading got me finally to buy that jar of virgin coconut oil

    After that I realised how much I love the taste of coconuts:D

  • I’ve been loving the duck fat lately. It’s liquid enough at room temp to make mayo without scrambling the eggs and is so yummy.
    BTW, Kait, I found another bone broth concentrate also from your neck of the woods. It is Australian Bone Broth Co. https://www.australianbonebrothco.com.au
    I have a friend who has a nightshade issue and that made me look closely at the ingredients in the Meadow and Marrow ones and several including the Lemon Herb which I love dearly include red peppers. The ABBC has one called 5 Herbs that is delicious with no nightshades. A bit cheaper too and in bigger jars.

  • I’ve been using Avocado oil for the past few months, and I can honestly say I never want to go back to any other cooking oils (excluding peanut oil for deep frying)

  • I use butter, ghee, bacon fat, avocado and coconut oil. I wanted to try duck fat and beef tallow but I need to find a place to buy them. I was talking to a client who mentioned that his daughter got him to try the Beyond Burger, and I mentioned how unhealthy it actually is because it contains canola oil an ingredient pretty high on the list and he said he thought canola oil was “heart healthy”. Ummm no.

  • Speaking of omega 3 to omega 6 ratios: I know that pork is fairly high in omega 6, so is it bad to eat too much pork? I eat mainly meat and a small amount of vegetables, but I prefer pork to beef so I tend to eat more of it. Is that bad?

  • Which oil is “best” for say frying chicken or cooking a breaded pork cutlet? I usually use vegetable or canola though I am considering switching. Any tips?

  • Eww. I got a couple of Mazola oil advertisements before and during your video.

    SO glad to be eating my dinner with duck fat and butter. This video is simple and to the point. Thanks for making and sharing it!!

  • I was in the understanding that avocado oil was perfectly ok for cooking and as healthy as olive oil! Can you elaborate on that please? And thank you for your videos, I enjoy them so much.

  • Hey Kait, I have a question! If you have used veggie oil for some time does going carnivore keto help repair the damage the veggie oil did?

  • Butter, bacon grease and lard are my favourites. I haven’t eaten margarine in years. I do eat mayonnaise, and it contains vegetable oils, but I don’t use it often.

  • I use red palm oil and coconut oil… When im cooking. When eating out at restaurant i have no control of what they are using. Eating out is a norm here in Malaysia. It is also cheaper. Damn…

  • Hi Kait! I love your content! One thing though please get a better microphone! I’ve working in AV for years so maybe I’m overly sensitive, but your mic pickup sounds hollow and tinny. Please upgrade so you can influence more people with your wisdom. This is important work you’re doing!

  • Watch Dr. Berry’s latest video on Macular Degeneration on how industrial seed oils (and the processed foods that contain them) are causing damage to our eyes. Scary stuff.

  • Hi Kait, excellent video. However I would also avoid coconut oil in addition to all the oils you mentioned. A clinic ran a leaky gut test. And coconut oil and MTC oil both cause leaky gut.

    The test goes as follow. They gave people a small amount of substance to drink. That substance which I cannot recall the name should be 100% eliminated via urine.

    If it isn’t then the person had a leaky gut.

    People eating animal fats did NOT have a leaky gut while people eating bad oils including coconut oil did have a leaky gut.

  • I’ve been using Avocado oil for the past few months, and I can honestly say I never want to go back to any other cooking oils (excluding peanut oil for deep frying)

  • Great info! Thanks Kait with the bait. I was looking at Goose fat for cooking earlier. If it’s not organic, would the fat be higher in Omega 6 if grain fed plus all the other nasties like hormones, anti biotics?

  • Hi doctor! I’ve mistakenly bought extra virgin Rapeseed oil instead of extra virgin olive oil yesterday. I feel very bad that I wasted money on it. I just wonder what your thoughts are on high quality British cold pressed extra virgin Rapeseed oil? I believe it’s not GMO version as in north american’s Canola as it is banned in the EU I think. But does this mean the rape grown in Britain has high level of toxic Erucic acid? As for omega 6: 3, it’s around 2:1 unlike those canola oil found in America. It has 10.2g of omega 3 and 20.1g of omega 6 per 100g (and 55.6g for omega 9, saturated fat of 6.96g) looking forward to hearing back from you! ☺️

  • Bacon grease, extra virgin olive oil, and avocado oil or grass fed butter usually. I admit to occasionally using peanut oil in certain stir-frys; it has an excellent flavor with bok-choy.

  • The most delicious olive oil I have ever had was in Croatia, but I don’t think they export it. We bought several bottles to take back to Germany but they didn’t last long!

  • Eww. I got a couple of Mazola oil advertisements before and during your video.

    SO glad to be eating my dinner with duck fat and butter. This video is simple and to the point. Thanks for making and sharing it!!

  • I was told to be careful to buy only cold pressed olive oil, but noticed you did not mention that.. is it not important after all?

  • The Randal cycle again the Randal cycle there is not a great deal of information on this which makes one suspicious. Polyunsaturated vegetable oils will compete with the glucose from carbohydrates for uptake in the cells this leads to a state of hyper glycaemia rendering the person eating a diabetic for a period of time even if they’re not a diabetic. Other than a few nuts and seeds there is virtually no food in mother nature that is a mixture of vegetable fat and carbs at the same time it is totally alien for our bodies to consume vegetable oil and carbohydrates at the same time in essence junk food, this combination is irresistible and highly addictive to humanity and with a almost 0 cost carbs and veg oil is so cheep to produce and it’s killing us

  • Best discussion on this topic ever: Ivor Cummins and Tucker Goodrich, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KY8pq8GwLVo&list=PLcIamYAboF5uwQCDfWCdsKjKfg2FH0HjV

  • I use olive oil and butter only. I suppose I could drop the olive oil. We’ve seen your biceps and know you could squeeze oil out of that corn kernal.

  • I enjoy your videos, but is difficult to believe that you apply any scientific rigour to these topics when you tout the consumption of essential oils for a variety of ailments. There is no good quality long term scientific evidence for most of the claims you make. Good quality, long-term evidence for coconut oil or avocado oil consumption does not exist. Putting misinformation out into the world is harmful. As a hospital pharmacist who works in cardiology, it is disappointing to see a lack of reference to outcomes that are meaningful, like mortality and cardiovascular health.

  • Thanks Dr. Berry for the info. and educating the masses. Just came from the “stupidmarket” and I’m amazed at the deceptive product labels I now find. A product called Follow Your Heart Original Vegenaise claims it’s better than mayo. Guess what the first ingredient is? Expeller pressed canola oil! You really have got to read the labels these days as not to fall into the food industry’s trap.

  • Hello health food no. 1 champion! I have been watching a lot of your videos which I find very informative. Thought you might be interested in a YouTube video by TEDx Talks called Unconventional but Effective Therapy for Alzheimer’s Treatment by Dr Mary T Newport which states Ketone esters and Coconut oil can treat Alzheimer’s. Her husband has Alzheimer’s. Keep up your excellent videos.

  • very informative video! i’ve been researching more about these oils and found out that there are only two ingredients listed on that Baguio pure vegetable oil100% pure coconut oil and vitamin A palmitate. I’m not sure what vitamin A palmitate is but it does say that it has 100% pure coconut oil. how is it different from the other coconut oil in the jar?

  • There is still the issue of a omega 3 to omega-6 ratios. I think omeega six oils are more of an issue with those who have metabolic syndrome. I will continue to play it safe with saturated fats when cooking. They are more stable.

  • I have heard that many olive oils are not always 100% olive oil they are mixed with some of the bad oils but can legally still advertise it as olive oil

  • Don’t expect such integrity from the vegan doctors, you know the ones who say meat is cancer on a plate and an egg is worse than cigarettes.

  • No matter what the expert said, “clarified butter from grass fed is the best cooking butter”. Extra virgin Olive oil is the best for salad or just to consume it

  • Hi Sten, thanks for your videos. What about using cold pressed extra virgin rapeseed oil, I have not seen it being mentioned.
    Can you also share some light on Omega 9? Appreciate it.

  • I think they are sometimes hard to avoid especially when you have buy already made salad dressings, or when eating out, but I prefer to use better choices when I make my food and dressings. Thanks for your explanation, very balanced.

  • I was told to be careful to buy only cold pressed olive oil, but noticed you did not mention that.. is it not important after all?

  • There’s a component of soy and sunflower seed called lecithin. PC for short. It’s a beautiful PUFA to incorporate into a low carb diet, especially for your liver��️

  • I think they are sometimes hard to avoid especially when you have buy already made salad dressings, or when eating out, but I prefer to use better choices when I make my food and dressings. Thanks for your explanation, very balanced.

  • Don’t expect such integrity from the vegan doctors, you know the ones who say meat is cancer on a plate and an egg is worse than cigarettes.

  • I agree with you Dr. Ekberg on everything you’ve said about the oils but, how about mentioning something about the toxicity of polymer food containers versus glass food containers? Take, for example, the wonderful organic olive oil packed in those polymer (plastic) containers, which may be free of pesticides, herbicides and maybe genetic modification, but full of synthetic estrogens from the polymer packaging. No food should come in contact with anything,plastic’! Glass and ceramic as much as possible, but definitely no plastics!

  • What about peanut oil? I like Olive oil, but taste-wise it is not the best for Asian food. I think I am going to start using more Ghee butter.

  • Rice Bran oil holds up to high temperature, and is neutral. No?

    I do not fry food.

    I use it for the pan.

    If not that, then ghee (clarified butter),

    I am considering grass-fed grass finished hormone free beef lard.

  • I use a ton of avocado oil. It’s very versatile for cooking, whereas olive oil breaks down easily. Unfortunately, I can’t stand coconut oil.

  • I use unfiltered organic extra virgin olive oil for dressings and cauliflower mash. I also use the avocado oil for mayonnaise. Organic coconut oil for everything else. I try not to brown anything so the smoke point is not an issue. Can’t do dairy, it makes my heart go into atrial fibrillation.

  • I really thought canola oil was decent. I’ve even recommended it to my friends. Olive oil is still expensive for me for daily use but I buy it sometimes.

  • Hey, what about flax oil? Sesame oil? And do animal fats oxidize and cause free radicals like cooking oils? I use a lot of bacon fat hehe

  • Very informative. It sounds foriegn to me but like all baking cookies, cakes ect…recipies say to use some kind of vegi oil in the recipe, I wonder what kind of animal fat could be used to replace it or if that would be weird. It’s just what we grew up doing but I’m sure before the invention of all the other oils animal fats were used.

  • Hi Dr, thank you so much for your videos.
    What is difference between animal based saturated fat and plant based one?
    When I boil cut cow bone, after getting cold, there is a layer of fat on top of that, is it good fat for body?

  • Extra virgem avocado oil is a very good source of MCT and omega 3 fatty acid. It has amazing health benefits when consumed in salads. You can use to cook too, but many nutrients will be lost.

  • Just want to acknowledge you Becky, you cover scientific information without being boring as hell, and you have a great video presence, getting to.the.point. Very refreshing! Thanks so much and LOVE your content! God bless!

  • can i give 1 Million likes <3 i am obsessed with your videos. May the Universe bless you and your family, with long life, amazing health and welth

  • What’s your take on palm oil? Currently in southeast Asia and noticed that palm oil is the most prominently used oil here for cooking.

  • Duck fat, pork lard, beef tallow, Bison tallow and butter. I don’t even bother anymore tying to talk to people about this type of stuff. It’s useless ����‍♂️

  • I suspect that those huge jugs of cheap cooking oil wind up in those little mom & pop restaurants. Even better restaurants cut corners in so many regards such as mixing canola oil with olive oil to save money. These days, I skip eating out as much as possible. After spending many years in the military as an aircrew member, we were constantly on the “road” and had to eat mostly military contractor provided food. After leaving the military I worked for ten years as a corporate pilot which also meant spending time on the “road” sleeping in noisy hotels and eating “airport” food. Once my weight hit 205, I simply had to quit that career and work at home. Glad I did and glad that through going keto and IF, my weight is down to a very healthy level, blood work is back to normal and instructed through my doctor to toss the medications. Food can be poison or done right, very healthy. Looking at most foods at Costco, the major supermarket chains or even Whole Foods, one has to be extremely choosy.

  • Yeah….i wish it were that simple……..experts are split on the subject, some saying coconut oil is the worst you can eat………others say it quite okay……this kind of testimony is commonplace….from dieticians, the mayo clinic and other health organisations.. “Coconut oil is extracted from coconut flesh, leaving behind the fibre, carbohydrate and protein, the extracted oil is pure fat. As we know, there are many different types of fats. The two major kinds are saturated fats (unhealthy fats that are linked with high blood cholesterol) and unsaturated fats (healthy fats that can reduce your risk of heart disease). Saturated fats make up 92% of coconut oil – a higher percentage than butter. Saturated fats tend to increase your LDL (unhealthy) cholesterol in the blood and should be eaten sparingly to minimise your risk of developing heart disease.

    One of the main arguments put forward by those who support coconut oil is that the saturated fat in coconut oil behaves differently to typical saturated fats, preventing any negative effects on health. The evidence states it’s not that simple. In fact, a recent report from the American Heart Association, based on a recent review of clinical trials, advises against using coconut oil due to its high saturated fat content.

    Coconut oil is particularly high in one type of saturated fatty acid (the building blocks of fats) called lauric acid. This type of fatty acid tends to mimic healthy unsaturated fats by boosting HDL (good) cholesterol. This may make it less concerning than other saturated fats. However, studies show that with the consumption of coconut oil, whilst healthy HDL cholesterol levels appear to rise, so too does total cholesterol and unhealthy LDL cholesterol in the blood!1

  • Here in the philippines canola oil is the best buys in the market..my sister is always buying it…my goodness this oil is not good at all..thnx for your warning us canola users,..

  • Wait, why does it sound MUFA is better than PUFA? I might be wrong but my high school science taught me that PUFA is a lot healthier.

  • Which oil is “best” for say frying chicken or cooking a breaded pork cutlet? I usually use vegetable or canola though I am considering switching. Any tips?

  • my parents go though a bottle of vegetable oil a week they drench everything they cook in it… i cook with grass-fed butter or ghee and i look nothing like them anymore, everyone in my family is overweight except for me

  • Hi Dr I am new to the whole scene but was considering finding a lifestyle doctor soon after quarantine is over and watch dr Eric berg and others on YouTube which promote the keto diet and some the carnivore and many people have had many positive benefits but a few I noticed in the comments said they had a stroke a few years on keto this one woman did it for 8 years than got two strokes and a heart attack and that concerns me greatly. I want to do keto to lose weight I’m around 200-210 not sure exactly and I also have a fatty liver and have seborrheic dermatitis mainly on the scalp. My scalp is so dry and brittle and my hair is also very dry and brittle like it’s lacking oil. I hear that keto can help with the dermatitis and people say their is no cure but some also say they did it and it hasn’t came back since starting keto. I also have heard a mix review of cholesterol hdl ldl etc etc I’m 21 I don’t know much about any of this I just want to be healthy and reap the benefits but also don’t want to lose my hair I’m losing some as is and scared keto will do that again doctor sorry for all the questions just really worried since it’s hard to find answers now a days I just want to live a healthy life

  • Hi erwan! i would like to ask where do you buy your Spectrum coconut oil here in the philippines? I am badly in need of that coconut oil. I was diagnosed of kidney disease and i can’t resist to eat fry foods. I think this oil would help me. Thank you erwan. please notice me. ��

  • Love where this is going.. please do a video on your other go to ingredients and brands.. preferably ones that are not endorsed haha. Also cooking materials and utensils, like your pots and pans would be nice..

  • Hi Sten, thanks for your videos. What about using cold pressed extra virgin rapeseed oil, I have not seen it being mentioned.
    Can you also share some light on Omega 9? Appreciate it.

  • Great balanced review, for me I avoid as much as possible, mainly olive oil for me. Thanks for the truly balanced review unlikely to get this from a vegan

  • Saladmaster doest not need oil when cooking or frying. The foods are not only nutritious and very healthy but tastes even better than with oil.

  • coconut oil is a saturated fatty acid which means it becomes solid at room temperature, so when you consume too much coconut oil on your diet, it will make you fat

  • Watch this video to the end and prosper from her research. Fake fats are garbage. I rarely eat in a restaurant and when I do I ask about whether oil is used in the food choice I’m selecting. If yes, I choose something else. Fortunately there’s nearly always a steak offered and I can ask for plain vegets, unless actual butter.

  • Any young aspiring filmmakers here like me? Comment here and ill sub to your channel. Let’s support each other and grow together! #wanderlust

  • Thanks. This is a very important topic. People are waking up to processed carbs being unhealthy but many still regard these “vegetable” oils as a health food. They are toxic….

  • What if we can’t afford olive oil? For someone in the wroking class like myself, I never bought olive oil simply because it really eats up alot of the grocery budget.

  • Not exactly accurate info. Coconut oil is the top choice yes for everything and the less refined the better. The avocado oil is the most heat stable and then olive oil Not for cooking and extra virgin to eat it cold

  • Best discussion on this topic ever: Ivor Cummins and Tucker Goodrich, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KY8pq8GwLVo&list=PLcIamYAboF5uwQCDfWCdsKjKfg2FH0HjV

  • You only cover vegi oil. How about animal oil? butter, ghee, lard etc? Also, I think you should NEVER use MCT for cooking due to the very low smoking point.

  • Vegetable oils are everywhere. Any study on the general population has no meaning since everyone is probably eating tons of veg oils without even knowing. Having a questionnaire on this means that people who claim to eat more veg oils are probably those who add it to salads or something like that. So you likely have a huge healthy user bias here. Plus no control group whatsoever since everyone gets some amount of veg oils anyway. This is terrible “science”.

  • Hi Ken. We have a farm here in the UK that makes cold-pressed rapeseed oil. It’s delicious and, I believe, not factory-made. Does this fall into the bad category with the rest of the seed oils? Martin

  • I’m no cook but this was actually very entertaining to watch; not to mention it was also very informative since I myself wonder about the differences of these oils. Good job Erwan!

  • Saw in some talk they may cause macular degeneration and don’t want to take a chance since I am going to a retina specialist for 3 years now. My problem hasn’t gotten any worse but I did give up all grains and sugar.
    I wonder who funded this study!

  • hi Erwan! great video, very informative! I didn’t know that canola oil is very bad for our health. yes I do have acid reflux ��. and I thought that Extra Virgin Olive Oil is much better for sauteing or frying eggs than pure olive oil and pomace.

  • Hey Erwan, thanks for this video. I am unsure about one thing you said about avocado oil. So if the bottle says its cold pressed, it means its not suitable for high heat cooking or are all avocado oil the same?

  • I really can’t handle restaurant food anymore. The oils they use to cook with just tear me up. About the only thing I can handle is a steak as long as it is truly grilled and not put on a flat top griddle, since they just HAVE to use crap oil on the flat top.

    Love tallow, butter, ghee, and bacon grease though. Eggs cooked in bacon grease…������

  • Saw in some talk they may cause macular degeneration and don’t want to take a chance since I am going to a retina specialist for 3 years now. My problem hasn’t gotten any worse but I did give up all grains and sugar.
    I wonder who funded this study!

  • Why report on a low quality study? I read we now get 30% of our calories from omega 6 on the SAD diet. Increases in cancer, heart disease, diabetes all correlate with the increase of intake of omega 6. So why report on a low quality study? Design a high quality study. Or explain the mechanism of disease.

  • There is still the issue of a omega 3 to omega-6 ratios. I think omeega six oils are more of an issue with those who have metabolic syndrome. I will continue to play it safe with saturated fats when cooking. They are more stable.

  • I went to the referenced site, but couldn’t find much on GRAPESEED OIL, which I understood was a good choice because of its high heat tolerance. What do you think of using grapeseed oil to sauté?

  • Canola oil isn’t an omega 6 oil. �� Edit: Also, avocado oil has the highest smoke point at like, 520°, virgin coconut oil, butter & EVOO have incredibly low smoke points.

  • No they are not good. Not even raw oils because they unnaturally raise Homocystine levels. This is the main cause of death of vegans and vegetarians. So no. Zero oils and no heating them if you want to use

  • I have heard that many olive oils are not always 100% olive oil they are mixed with some of the bad oils but can legally still advertise it as olive oil

  • Bacon grease, extra virgin olive oil, and avocado oil or grass fed butter usually. I admit to occasionally using peanut oil in certain stir-frys; it has an excellent flavor with bok-choy.

  • but you forgot the RDA? mono unsaturated fats are good to the body but making them look like it is still fat is kind of mis informing the same thing as the benefits of eggs since you mentioned it.. and its true that consumption is moderated but upto what degree as most will just avoid the healthy oils which could be beneficial like omega 6 and omega 9 and vitamin E if you just lump all oils together as the same

  • It has just been reported in the British press that Dr Karin Michels of Harvard University has said in a German lecture that coconut oil is “pure poison”. What are your thoughts on that? I remember such people in the seventies saying that butter was poison, when it certainly wasn’t.

  • Thanks Becky. I wonder, how should these oils be stored. Should coconut oil be kept in a fridge, and can these oils go rancid. What is their shelf life. Thanks for sharing.

  • Definitely one of my favorite videos. Info + graphics + good looks = ��SUPERB! Thanks for this, dude. Leggo to Landers and buy some Avocado oil plus the chance of seeing Erwann there browsing some good stuffs. ��

  • Thanks for your video but I really hate coconut so to sauté some vegetables or cook my eggs do you recommend olive or avocado oil? Thanks

  • how do you take the fat information and relate it bake to no cooking applications 100 grams of Walnuts has a total of 65 grams fat of which 47 grams is polyunsaturated, does that make Walnuts a bad choice because the polyunsaturated fat will oxidise?

  • Now you have thoroughly confused me. If the quality of this study is low, why would you even bother wondering about the potential veracity of its conclusions? A fake fact is more dangerous than no fact at all. Not disputing such studies is consent by silence. ☹️

  • Hi, Becky. There are so many olive and coconut oil out there. Are they all the same quality? If not, how do you determine the highest quality?

  • Garbage canola oil????? Omg my nutritionist really misguided me. Are used to cook with olive oil all the time and the nutritionist really got mad and told me that it is toxic to cook with and replace canola oil and sunflower oil. And the worst thing is I am a thyroid patient but I also like to eat the goitrogenic vegetables and she told me never ever ever ever eat the goitrogenic vegetables. Not the research says that is absolutely fine to eat those vegetables And the research also sees canola oil how toxic it is. Really before listening to any nutritionist we should always listen to doctors like you and do more research on it

  • what about nut oils like peanut or macadamian nut oil? are they bad good? i mostly only use evo olive oil and sometimes butter but once in a while when i want to deep fry, what would be the best oil for that?

  • Hi. Can you please explain how canola oil is harmful? I didn’t find anything horrific in my research. And the only negative thing I found about soybean oil is that too much of it can cause a larger liver..? What about palm oil..?

  • even diesel engines hate veggie oils (rme) its corrosive clogs fuel filters and wrecks havoc.. needless to say you should not put veggie oils in you…

  • Dr. Becky, thank you for this information! But about canola oil, I buy the Spectrum brand, which is organic, expeller pressed and non-GMO, and the label says it has a high smoke point and can be used at temps up to 450 degrees. I tend to only use it for baking recipes which call for oil, rather than solid butter.

  • Great balanced review, for me I avoid as much as possible, mainly olive oil for me. Thanks for the truly balanced review unlikely to get this from a vegan

  • I use light olive oil to make my own mayonnaise and dressing for salads. I have macular degeneration and read that the oils such as canola, vegetable, and soybean oil, etc., can contribute to macular degeneration.

  • Hi Dr. Becky, Enjoyed your video. And for Keto, can eating rice bran oil? It is extracted from germ and inner husk of rice.Thanks.

  • What about peanut oil? I like Olive oil, but taste-wise it is not the best for Asian food. I think I am going to start using more Ghee butter.

  • i’m with you they way they are processed and the fact that we can eat naturally derived oils is what we should be eating to stack the health deck of cards in our favor

  • Only oil I ever use is avocado and olive, and then I don’t use them everyday. I am sure in a little while from now, another survey will come out stating the exact opposite, just like the ones on coffee and eggs.

  • I would LOVE if you would provide your evidence in the form of citations to peer reviewed journal articles in the description. I always love to further educate myself on these things!

  • What are your thoughts on cold pressed rapeseed oil? Avocado oil is very expensive here and I’m not a fan of olive oil mayonnaise.

  • Not exactly accurate info. Coconut oil is the top choice yes for everything and the less refined the better. The avocado oil is the most heat stable and then olive oil Not for cooking and extra virgin to eat it cold

  • I use to not care what I ate. Now that I look at the ingredients of processed foods, one ingredient stands out above all others, and that is soy bean oil. It is probably the main contributor to obesity in the USA, along with all the other seed oils.

  • Thats the issue….I cant remember to write down on a daily basis the exact foods I ate by the end of the day; so these studies are bogus and completely worthless. I cannot believe they make it into any medical journals anymore 800,000 people or 100 people. What a collosal waste of time, energy and grant money.

  • Why exactly is cholesterol evil? Don’t we need those for the formation of many hormones?

    Cholesterol does not cause atherosclerosis and its sequela cardiovascular heart disease

    [Hyperinsulinemia triggers the inflammatory conditions that can lead to atherosclerosis.]

  • Hi doctor! I’ve mistakenly bought extra virgin Rapeseed oil instead of extra virgin olive oil yesterday. I feel very bad that I wasted money on it. I just wonder what your thoughts are on high quality British cold pressed extra virgin Rapeseed oil? I believe it’s not GMO version as in north american’s Canola as it is banned in the EU I think. But does this mean the rape grown in Britain has high level of toxic Erucic acid? As for omega 6: 3, it’s around 2:1 unlike those canola oil found in America. It has 10.2g of omega 3 and 20.1g of omega 6 per 100g (and 55.6g for omega 9, saturated fat of 6.96g) looking forward to hearing back from you! ☺️

  • Hi Dr, thank you so much for your videos.
    What is difference between animal based saturated fat and plant based one?
    When I boil cut cow bone, after getting cold, there is a layer of fat on top of that, is it good fat for body?

  • Avocado or olive oil is perfect, also for baking!!
    I still had acne from ghee…
    Bake bacon without any oil because it has fats in it and then when that is done i fry my eggs in it.

  • There’s a component of soy and sunflower seed called lecithin. PC for short. It’s a beautiful PUFA to incorporate into a low carb diet, especially for your liver��️

  • Great explanation! I appreciate the way you bring out the chemistry! If we all understood the chemistry behind our food, I suspect folks would likely make better choices. I know I do!

  • Thank you Erwan, I honestly wanted to know what kind of cooking oils is best to cook with because I’m trying to be more aware of what i eat & then I see your video on my notifications so I appreciate the time you put into making this
    Btw I wish I had a boyfriend who knows how to cook as good as you, I wouldn’t mind if he made better dishes than I would haha

  • In my non-scientific opinion, the best fat for cooking is beef dripping. The 2nd best is lard. They are both cheap but difficult to find.

  • I use a ton of avocado oil. It’s very versatile for cooking, whereas olive oil breaks down easily. Unfortunately, I can’t stand coconut oil.

  • I get the worst stomach ache and GI distress eating vegetable oils. It has to be olive or avocado oil if not saturated fats for my stomach to be able to handle it.

  • We just bought what I thought was a great mayonnaise made with sunflower seed oil. Came up zero carb and high fat. Too bad. It is tasty!

  • What is your take on what the health on Netflix? Also does it bother you when your husband eats something that you don’t think is healthy??

  • Hi Dr. Becky, thanks for the video!
    I thought MCT oil could not be used in cooking? Or perhaps can be used as olive oil in low heat sauté? Thanks!

  • Great info! Thanks Kait with the bait. I was looking at Goose fat for cooking earlier. If it’s not organic, would the fat be higher in Omega 6 if grain fed plus all the other nasties like hormones, anti biotics?

  • Thank you for this. I try to use Balsamic or Red-wine Vinegar on salads occasionally eat Ranch dressing because I like it with chicken. But for Salmon or Tuna love the vinegars.

  • Its expensive I’am told but, here comes the carbs, Fried potatoes with duck fat. I am going to be the guinea pig, and try it.I can always go back to carnivore.

  • Why exactly is cholesterol evil? Don’t we need those for the formation of many hormones?

    Cholesterol does not cause atherosclerosis and its sequela cardiovascular heart disease

  • Dr Berry, thanks for all your great videos. What about chicken fat for frying in? I make dog food for my 2 dogs out of chicken quarters and always have lots of chicken fat left that I’ve been freezing. I refrigerate the broth and it solidifies on the topthen I just scrape it off the top and freeze.

  • Saladmaster doest not need oil when cooking or frying. The foods are not only nutritious and very healthy but tastes even better than with oil.

  • I have to say that I’m getting different information from different places which is conflicting and confusing. Saturated fats are more stable and better, but saturated fats can lead to heart disease. I’m trying to lose a bit of weight and have been doing a bit of research and have found your channel very informative, but I’m getting the impression that when dieting you can end up trading off one demon for another. An example of a site that seems to conflict with what you have said here https://www.livescience.com/59893-which-cooking-oils-are-healthiest.html It seems to be old information from maybe ten years ago, but I might be reading this all wrong.

  • Love where this is going.. please do a video on your other go to ingredients and brands.. preferably ones that are not endorsed haha. Also cooking materials and utensils, like your pots and pans would be nice..

  • I couldn’t make this up, when I clicked on this video the first pop up ad was for Mazola oil. OMG the second Mazola ad just popped up as I am typing this. Only 5 min. in.

  • Hmmm do you have any credible research backing these claims? I am not unwilling to accept new information, but what you said contradicts what I’ve been told my entire life, and I need sufficient evidence before changing all I believe in.

  • Hey Erwan, thanks for this video. I am unsure about one thing you said about avocado oil. So if the bottle says its cold pressed, it means its not suitable for high heat cooking or are all avocado oil the same?

  • I hope more get a look at this

  • Here in the philippines canola oil is the best buys in the market..my sister is always buying it…my goodness this oil is not good at all..thnx for your warning us canola users,..

  • Pretty odd that your advice goes directly against the American heart association and Harvard university’s recommendations, saturated and trans fats both have been proven to increase LDL cholesterol increasing your risk of atherosclerosis, canola is low in both saturated and trans fats and even has a significant amounts of Omega 3 fatty acids which also have an anti-inflammatory effect in the body, decrease the growth of plaque in the arteries, and aid in thinning blood.

  • I’ve seen in some research that some experts advise against coconut oil because it’s high in saturated fats. Could you explain how the benefits outweigh the negatives and risks of high cholestrol?

  • Coffee is SEED OIL….whoa

  • I use butter, ghee, bacon fat, avocado and coconut oil. I wanted to try duck fat and beef tallow but I need to find a place to buy them. I was talking to a client who mentioned that his daughter got him to try the Beyond Burger, and I mentioned how unhealthy it actually is because it contains canola oil an ingredient pretty high on the list and he said he thought canola oil was “heart healthy”. Ummm no.

  • I need your help ASAP. A lot of dog food have CANOLA OIL!!!
    Any reference on what to feed him. He is already under inflammatory stress. He is eating nomnomnow but it has canola oil!!!

  • I agree with you Dr. Ekberg on everything you’ve said about the oils but, how about mentioning something about the toxicity of polymer food containers versus glass food containers? Take, for example, the wonderful organic olive oil packed in those polymer (plastic) containers, which may be free of pesticides, herbicides and maybe genetic modification, but full of synthetic estrogens from the polymer packaging. No food should come in contact with anything,plastic’! Glass and ceramic as much as possible, but definitely no plastics!

  • If you don’t want to suffer from heart disease, use Canola oil. It contains polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fat which is healthier than saturated fats. Avoid oil that contains high amount of saturated fat, such as coconut oil, it will cause your arteries to clog, which increases your risk for heart disease. Excess saturated fat, trans fat and dietary cholesterol can build up in artery walls and harden, causing blockages.

  • Don’t forget about “hidden” vegetable oil in processed foods. I’m talking about TV dinners, Doritos, Cheetos, and other snacks and processed foods. Even eating out is a no-no. This is a harsh position to take, but it’s the honest truth.

    I’ve been avoiding vegetable oil for a year now, and cooking only with lard and butter. And my lifelong dandruff problem went away completely. I am 49.

  • even diesel engines hate veggie oils (rme) its corrosive clogs fuel filters and wrecks havoc.. needless to say you should not put veggie oils in you…

  • What’s your opinion of rice bran oil? I like it for grilling chicken as it has a very high smoke point and you can get your chicken very crispy

  • Excellent overview, thank you. This is a very proper channel! I actually use both olive and coconut oil for sautéing. The preferable virgin versions obviously have a lower smoking point than the refined ones, so I am very careful with the heat. I will recommend for everybody to invest in a thermometer gun (you can get it on Ebay for $15). I was baffled when I first noticed how easily the oil gets too hot and how helpful such thermometer is. Now I warm up the pan to 140 C./284 F., add the oil and immediately afterwards the vegestables. In regard of induction, pans differ in their conductivity. A given pan size, on a given setting, have its own surface temperature. This factor can be huge. Also, pans differ a great deal in regard of spot effect. If the pan doesn’t have much spot effect the whole surface ought to be covered. You will find out all of that with a thermometer gun.

  • I’ve been loving the duck fat lately. It’s liquid enough at room temp to make mayo without scrambling the eggs and is so yummy.
    BTW, Kait, I found another bone broth concentrate also from your neck of the woods. It is Australian Bone Broth Co. https://www.australianbonebrothco.com.au
    I have a friend who has a nightshade issue and that made me look closely at the ingredients in the Meadow and Marrow ones and several including the Lemon Herb which I love dearly include red peppers. The ABBC has one called 5 Herbs that is delicious with no nightshades. A bit cheaper too and in bigger jars.

  • I think you’re being weak & straddling the fence to keep from taking a firm stand on the poison the food industry is pushing solely for profit with no concern of health of those buying & eating that trash.

    Studies can be fixed to say whatever the highest bidder or most powerful want them to say.

    Real science show that trash they call vegetables oil is (1) doesn’t even come from vegetables. This false advertisement alone plainly demonstrate deceit in what they’re selling or they would just tell the truth. (2) Science show prolonged use of their poison is harmful to our health, & we can clearly see that by simply working backwards to when we see an increase in heart disease, cancer, diabetes, obesity & we find it all started with the increase of refined sugar, more use of processed food, promotion of these dangerous chemicals labeled as vegetable oil.

    All these industries; Processed Food, Sugar, Vegetable Oil, Sodas & the FDA & the American Heart Association for taking money from these dealers in slow death to look the other way, they all should be sued out of existence & the CEOS & head managers all should be thrown in prison for the poison they’ve been selling to innocent people who trusted them & their false advertisements & fixed “studies”.

    Take a stand, man!

  • The most delicious olive oil I have ever had was in Croatia, but I don’t think they export it. We bought several bottles to take back to Germany but they didn’t last long!

  • If you try not to eat them, you will still get them in conventional fed animals. Saying they are the devil while chowing down soy and corn fed eggs its quite funny.

  • There are so many foods that are mixed in common diet that these studies can’t possibly detect an effect even if the data was accurate, which it is not. What did they eat with it?

  • what about nut oils like peanut or macadamian nut oil? are they bad good? i mostly only use evo olive oil and sometimes butter but once in a while when i want to deep fry, what would be the best oil for that?

  • note: as to comments below when tossing oils.. Not down the sink.. Not in a bottle.. mix oil with something,,,flour, dirt.. cat litter… or it just makes a mess for the garbage man. Bottles burst = oily mess for him to clean up. Don’t mess with the cook or the garbage man.

  • p.s. if canola oil is cold pressed and organic (non-GMO) it sure would open up lots of food options for me. I eat Whole Foods salads and some of their tastiest looking foods use that. They use it in everything…. rarely is olive oil used.
    thanks Doc

  • very informative video! i’ve been researching more about these oils and found out that there are only two ingredients listed on that Baguio pure vegetable oil100% pure coconut oil and vitamin A palmitate. I’m not sure what vitamin A palmitate is but it does say that it has 100% pure coconut oil. how is it different from the other coconut oil in the jar?

  • Olive and Palm Oil are Fruit Oil. Palm Kernel Oil and most of other vegetable oil are seed oil. Palm Oil is still a better oil compared Olive oil where it has better smoke point too

  • Corn oil rct from the 60s fed the low fat low cholesterol diet arm 80 grams of corn oil a day. At the end of the study 75 percent was still alive in control group and only 50 percent were still alive in the 80 grams corn oil group despite achieving lower cholesterol. Cannot disprove rcts with p-hacking weak correlations out of methodologically flawed glorified surveys that tell you what a person vaguely remembers eating over the course of a year and in no way tells you what they actually ate or in what amount they are it.
    But…..great video!

  • By treating these types of studies as equals is just how we got ourselves in this dietary mess. I expect better from this channel.

  • Avocado oil is more heat tolerant than olive oil. I use all the healthy oils you mentioned. I also use lard that i rendered myself.
    Also omga 6 does not cause inflammation if accompanied by omiga3.
    The two work together.

  • How many people you know constantly eat crunchy deep fried or “broasted” chicken and then ask what their health problems are give them a clue

  • Hi, Becky. There are so many olive and coconut oil out there. Are they all the same quality? If not, how do you determine the highest quality?

  • I cook a lot in a wok and olive oil is really not a choice because it has a low smoke point and has a strong taste. I usually use canola and peanut.

  • can i give 1 Million likes <3 i am obsessed with your videos. May the Universe bless you and your family, with long life, amazing health and welth

  • A general question to the US people, what is the “organic” olive oil? I’m Italian and we don’t have the organic extra virgin oil. It’s what we call Bio, maybe?

  • and alwayy when say extra vingin olive oil and normal olive oil need to understand differnce. Extravigin oil is more pure in colour but not take heat so much than normal olive oil wich is best for taste and cooking,

  • Any thoughts on Sunflower seed oil and Sunflowers seeds?
    A couple of the Keto gurus seem to say the Sunflower seed oil and sunflower seeds are healthy for you. (especially organic)
    Thanks on the tip on high oleic acid content.
    I am impressed by your integrity and honesty!!
    Thanks Doc!

  • I really thought canola oil was decent. I’ve even recommended it to my friends. Olive oil is still expensive for me for daily use but I buy it sometimes.

  • Thank you for this. I try to use Balsamic or Red-wine Vinegar on salads occasionally eat Ranch dressing because I like it with chicken. But for Salmon or Tuna love the vinegars.

  • Why are people complaining or asking her to cite her info? Do your own damn research and/or make your own damn videos. Stop complaining, use your brain and, think for yourself.

  • Here’s the Fats and Oil guide I use: https://balancedbites.com/fats-which-to-eat-and-which-to-ditch/ and for cooking: https://balancedbites.com/content/best-cooking-fats/. I try to avoid purchasing processed food without stable oils. If consumers demand better quality, suppliers will make better quality.

  • I use EVOO for most part but also starring Organic Coconut oil. Be any Oil, The protein level is always 0 regardless if cold pressed or other. Always wondered what is done by manufacturers to remove protein from even coconut oil? Looking to extract oil at home but no tools.

  • I would LOVE if you would provide your evidence in the form of citations to peer reviewed journal articles in the description. I always love to further educate myself on these things!

  • I enjoy your videos, but is difficult to believe that you apply any scientific rigour to these topics when you tout the consumption of essential oils for a variety of ailments. There is no good quality long term scientific evidence for most of the claims you make. Good quality, long-term evidence for coconut oil or avocado oil consumption does not exist. Putting misinformation out into the world is harmful. As a hospital pharmacist who works in cardiology, it is disappointing to see a lack of reference to outcomes that are meaningful, like mortality and cardiovascular health.

  • Thanks for all of this information! I am also a huge fan of avocado oil! Can you share your thoughts on using refined, cold-pressed coconut oil for cooking when you don’t want that nutty taste? Do you think it’s okay for those instances? Or would you just recommend skipping it and using avocado oil in place?

  • Switched from canola to avocado oil for all my high heat needs and haven’t looked back since! Love and appreciate your knowledge as always girl ❤️

  • Switched from canola to avocado oil for all my high heat needs and haven’t looked back since! Love and appreciate your knowledge as always girl ❤️

  • where does ghee fall in all of this? Is it a good option for baking/sautéing or does coconut oil reign supreme for these purposes?

  • What about mustard oil? Ayurbeda reccomends mustard oil for cooking. And in india people have been using mustard oil to cook and even our ancestors

  • I hope more get a look at this

    Plant cholesterol OMG phytosterols I thought it could not get worse than the Randal cycle

  • Aldehydes are scary. What vegetables is that Baguio oil made from? Palm oil is pretty bad I imagine. It coagulates at room temperature.

  • can you include the resources that you used? I would like to dive more into this subject especially with cooking oils to avoid. i’ve seen canola oil getting a bad rep on the internet lately and am curious where it stems from.

  • Excellent video! I love butter and animal fats! Tasty, nutritious, healthy! I bought every type (always grass fed, pasture-raised) I could find when I discovered this ��

  • Wait, why does it sound MUFA is better than PUFA? I might be wrong but my high school science taught me that PUFA is a lot healthier.

  • Nice overview!
    May sound crazy ( for a keto-carnivore-guy ) but I don’t use any oil or fat for cooking. I usually simmer my stuff for a short time or eat it raw. My fat comes from pure suet or marrow, which I normally eat warmed, sometimes butter XD.

  • Just want to acknowledge you Becky, you cover scientific information without being boring as hell, and you have a great video presence, getting to.the.point. Very refreshing! Thanks so much and LOVE your content! God bless!

  • Why are people complaining or asking her to cite her info? Do your own damn research and/or make your own damn videos. Stop complaining, use your brain and, think for yourself.

  • Hi erwan! i would like to ask where do you buy your Spectrum coconut oil here in the philippines? I am badly in need of that coconut oil. I was diagnosed of kidney disease and i can’t resist to eat fry foods. I think this oil would help me. Thank you erwan. please notice me. ��

  • What about refined coconut oil, which has no coconut flavor? Is there something about the refinement that makes the oil not as good as unrefined coconut oil? Some recipes need a more neutral cooking oil and avocado oil is pretty pricey. Thanks for all the info!

  • Kait, I recently found out that natural animal products have small amounts of trans fats in them. How do you feel about this and if it’s negligible do you think it’s harmless? Is a trans fat a trans fat regardless of the source?

  • Hi Dr. Becky, thanks for the video!
    I thought MCT oil could not be used in cooking? Or perhaps can be used as olive oil in low heat sauté? Thanks!

  • Hi Dr. Ken Berry, what are your thoughts and advice on cooking with Gee Butter. My husband is Indian and we make our own Ghee Butter at home but I never know if it is healthy or safe to cook with it at all times. Please let me know. Thank you.

  • coconut oil is a saturated fatty acid which means it becomes solid at room temperature, so when you consume too much coconut oil on your diet, it will make you fat

  • Very informative. Great to really have the different types of oil used and explained how they should be used. Curious, you wear made in MNL, but no accent, so you are “mistos”? Especially your name, not a typical Pinoy name. But I’ll watch your posting.

  • Any young aspiring filmmakers here like me? Comment here and ill sub to your channel. Let’s support each other and grow together! #wanderlust

  • My god! good thing I get to watch this video. I’ve been trying to figure out which one should I use between pomace and regular olive oil. Thanks for introducing the Avocado oil Erwan! This is really helpful.:)

  • What if we can’t afford olive oil? For someone in the wroking class like myself, I never bought olive oil simply because it really eats up alot of the grocery budget.

  • Definitely one of my favorite videos. Info + graphics + good looks = ��SUPERB! Thanks for this, dude. Leggo to Landers and buy some Avocado oil plus the chance of seeing Erwann there browsing some good stuffs. ��

  • Canola oil isn’t an omega 6 oil. �� Edit: Also, avocado oil has the highest smoke point at like, 520°, virgin coconut oil, butter & EVOO have incredibly low smoke points.

  • What about mustard oil? Ayurbeda reccomends mustard oil for cooking. And in india people have been using mustard oil to cook and even our ancestors

  • I’m no cook but this was actually very entertaining to watch; not to mention it was also very informative since I myself wonder about the differences of these oils. Good job Erwan!

  • I cook a lot in a wok and olive oil is really not a choice because it has a low smoke point and has a strong taste. I usually use canola and peanut.

  • What’s your take on palm oil? Currently in southeast Asia and noticed that palm oil is the most prominently used oil here for cooking.

  • and alwayy when say extra vingin olive oil and normal olive oil need to understand differnce. Extravigin oil is more pure in colour but not take heat so much than normal olive oil wich is best for taste and cooking,

  • Kait, I recently found out that natural animal products have small amounts of trans fats in them. How do you feel about this and if it’s negligible do you think it’s harmless? Is a trans fat a trans fat regardless of the source?

  • Very important information, thx Kait!

    More and more experts are leaning to say that these oils have THE worst impact on human health, way worse than the carb-overload. Why? In my view, simply because they replace good, healthy animal fats with plant derivatives. Thinking of Tofu and almond milk yet? Hmmm…
    The heating during production, on the other hand, may actually be a good thing. ‘Cause without it, these fats would also be essences full of plant toxins, in extremely high dosages. The high heat destroys most of these poisons.

    So, if someone is consuming much olive oil, be aware that these are not skinned before the processing and that the skin of every fruit contains a rich amount of all kinds of (natural and unnatural) pesticides and fungicides. So a lot of these will end up in the oil, (relatively) unheated (olives are heated for pressing as well, just not that much, I think around 60-70 degress centigrade with “extra virgin olive oil”).

  • There are so many foods that are mixed in common diet that these studies can’t possibly detect an effect even if the data was accurate, which it is not. What did they eat with it?

  • My endocrinologist told my yes it’s true canola oil causes inflammation. Then it all made sense, I would get an itch in my ears because of water under the skin (inflammation) and causing them to itch. It all started when I started using canola oil but you never think that they might be connected.

  • my parents go though a bottle of vegetable oil a week they drench everything they cook in it… i cook with grass-fed butter or ghee and i look nothing like them anymore, everyone in my family is overweight except for me

  • I need your help ASAP. A lot of dog food have CANOLA OIL!!!
    Any reference on what to feed him. He is already under inflammatory stress. He is eating nomnomnow but it has canola oil!!!

  • What’s your opinion of rice bran oil? I like it for grilling chicken as it has a very high smoke point and you can get your chicken very crispy

  • I will never look at a vat full of 375 degree seed oil the same way again. What are those fries soaking in? My goodness! And this is what we are told is the “good” oil. Good grief…

  • If you don’t want to suffer from heart disease, use Canola oil. It contains polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fat which is healthier than saturated fats. Avoid oil that contains high amount of saturated fat, such as coconut oil, it will cause your arteries to clog, which increases your risk for heart disease. Excess saturated fat, trans fat and dietary cholesterol can build up in artery walls and harden, causing blockages.

  • No they are not good. Not even raw oils because they unnaturally raise Homocystine levels. This is the main cause of death of vegans and vegetarians. So no. Zero oils and no heating them if you want to use

  • If you try not to eat them, you will still get them in conventional fed animals. Saying they are the devil while chowing down soy and corn fed eggs its quite funny.

  • Maybe they were dying less, because the people eating most vegetable oils tend to care more about their health and don’t eat fast food etc.

  • I use to not care what I ate. Now that I look at the ingredients of processed foods, one ingredient stands out above all others, and that is soy bean oil. It is probably the main contributor to obesity in the USA, along with all the other seed oils.

  • My mother used to cook with corn oil when I was a kid; explains why I had the “stomach flu” a lot! I used to use canola and sunflower oil before when I was an omnivore, there isn’t enough space to list all the health problems I had! Now I use grass fed tallow and what an overall improvement!

  • Speaking of omega 3 to omega 6 ratios: I know that pork is fairly high in omega 6, so is it bad to eat too much pork? I eat mainly meat and a small amount of vegetables, but I prefer pork to beef so I tend to eat more of it. Is that bad?

  • In my non-scientific opinion, the best fat for cooking is beef dripping. The 2nd best is lard. They are both cheap but difficult to find.

  • I think you’re being weak & straddling the fence to keep from taking a firm stand on the poison the food industry is pushing solely for profit with no concern of health of those buying & eating that trash.

    Studies can be fixed to say whatever the highest bidder or most powerful want them to say.

    Real science show that trash they call vegetables oil is (1) doesn’t even come from vegetables. This false advertisement alone plainly demonstrate deceit in what they’re selling or they would just tell the truth. (2) Science show prolonged use of their poison is harmful to our health, & we can clearly see that by simply working backwards to when we see an increase in heart disease, cancer, diabetes, obesity & we find it all started with the increase of refined sugar, more use of processed food, promotion of these dangerous chemicals labeled as vegetable oil.

    All these industries; Processed Food, Sugar, Vegetable Oil, Sodas & the FDA & the American Heart Association for taking money from these dealers in slow death to look the other way, they all should be sued out of existence & the CEOS & head managers all should be thrown in prison for the poison they’ve been selling to innocent people who trusted them & their false advertisements & fixed “studies”.

    Take a stand, man!

  • Make a video explaining why the Spain diet shouldnt be followed cause they’re the healthiest. Country so what is your opinion on that

  • No PROCEESED OIL is healthy PERIOD. You want olive oil eat olives. Nature doesn’t make mistakes. Its WHOLE FOODS for a reason. Man takes perfection and fucks it up.

  • Butter, bacon grease and lard are my favourites. I haven’t eaten margarine in years. I do eat mayonnaise, and it contains vegetable oils, but I don’t use it often.

  • Thanks Dr. Berry for the info. and educating the masses. Just came from the “stupidmarket” and I’m amazed at the deceptive product labels I now find. A product called Follow Your Heart Original Vegenaise claims it’s better than mayo. Guess what the first ingredient is? Expeller pressed canola oil! You really have got to read the labels these days as not to fall into the food industry’s trap.

  • Thank you so much for the video! It is so informative! I use the grape seed oil. I’ve just checked it’s smoke point and I am good��

  • Kait-what do you and people here think might be the best foods/diet to eat to slow, stop, or even reverse the progression of atherosclerosis? Got a goodly amount over here and I’m casting a wide net trying to learn as much a I can about this. Thanks anybody,:)

  • Very informative. It sounds foriegn to me but like all baking cookies, cakes ect…recipies say to use some kind of vegi oil in the recipe, I wonder what kind of animal fat could be used to replace it or if that would be weird. It’s just what we grew up doing but I’m sure before the invention of all the other oils animal fats were used.

  • Hi Kait, excellent video. However I would also avoid coconut oil in addition to all the oils you mentioned. A clinic ran a leaky gut test. And coconut oil and MTC oil both cause leaky gut.

    The test goes as follow. They gave people a small amount of substance to drink. That substance which I cannot recall the name should be 100% eliminated via urine.

    If it isn’t then the person had a leaky gut.

    People eating animal fats did NOT have a leaky gut while people eating bad oils including coconut oil did have a leaky gut.

  • Excellent video! I love butter and animal fats! Tasty, nutritious, healthy! I bought every type (always grass fed, pasture-raised) I could find when I discovered this ��

  • Hmmm do you have any credible research backing these claims? I am not unwilling to accept new information, but what you said contradicts what I’ve been told my entire life, and I need sufficient evidence before changing all I believe in.

  • Thanks. This is a very important topic. People are waking up to processed carbs being unhealthy but many still regard these “vegetable” oils as a health food. They are toxic….

  • I couldn’t make this up, when I clicked on this video the first pop up ad was for Mazola oil. OMG the second Mazola ad just popped up as I am typing this. Only 5 min. in.

  • Avocado or olive oil is perfect, also for baking!!
    I still had acne from ghee…
    Bake bacon without any oil because it has fats in it and then when that is done i fry my eggs in it.

  • Thanks for your video but I really hate coconut so to sauté some vegetables or cook my eggs do you recommend olive or avocado oil? Thanks

  • What about extra within rapeseed.. I though I am doing better the oils oil for years now.. it’s not processed. Could you tslk about the processed vs cold pressed oils differeces

  • The Randal cycle again the Randal cycle there is not a great deal of information on this which makes one suspicious. Polyunsaturated vegetable oils will compete with the glucose from carbohydrates for uptake in the cells this leads to a state of hyper glycaemia rendering the person eating a diabetic for a period of time even if they’re not a diabetic. Other than a few nuts and seeds there is virtually no food in mother nature that is a mixture of vegetable fat and carbs at the same time it is totally alien for our bodies to consume vegetable oil and carbohydrates at the same time in essence junk food, this combination is irresistible and highly addictive to humanity and with a almost 0 cost carbs and veg oil is so cheep to produce and it’s killing us

    https://youtu.be/TPS5yUcsH5g

  • Duck fat, pork lard, beef tallow, Bison tallow and butter. I don’t even bother anymore tying to talk to people about this type of stuff. It’s useless ����‍♂️

  • What about cold pressed, first pressed, olive oil? I don’t understand how is that chemically processed or is it just a marketing scheme? Thank you!

  • I use olive oil and butter only. I suppose I could drop the olive oil. We’ve seen your biceps and know you could squeeze oil out of that corn kernal.

  • I use light olive oil to make my own mayonnaise and dressing for salads. I have macular degeneration and read that the oils such as canola, vegetable, and soybean oil, etc., can contribute to macular degeneration.

  • Why report on a low quality study? I read we now get 30% of our calories from omega 6 on the SAD diet. Increases in cancer, heart disease, diabetes all correlate with the increase of intake of omega 6. So why report on a low quality study? Design a high quality study. Or explain the mechanism of disease.

  • Hello health food no. 1 champion! I have been watching a lot of your videos which I find very informative. Thought you might be interested in a YouTube video by TEDx Talks called Unconventional but Effective Therapy for Alzheimer’s Treatment by Dr Mary T Newport which states Ketone esters and Coconut oil can treat Alzheimer’s. Her husband has Alzheimer’s. Keep up your excellent videos.

  • I use EVOO for most part but also starring Organic Coconut oil. Be any Oil, The protein level is always 0 regardless if cold pressed or other. Always wondered what is done by manufacturers to remove protein from even coconut oil? Looking to extract oil at home but no tools.

  • Hi Dr. Becky, Enjoyed your video. And for Keto, can eating rice bran oil? It is extracted from germ and inner husk of rice.Thanks.

  • Very important information, thx Kait!

  • I use unfiltered organic extra virgin olive oil for dressings and cauliflower mash. I also use the avocado oil for mayonnaise. Organic coconut oil for everything else. I try not to brown anything so the smoke point is not an issue. Can’t do dairy, it makes my heart go into atrial fibrillation.

  • No matter what the expert said, “clarified butter from grass fed is the best cooking butter”. Extra virgin Olive oil is the best for salad or just to consume it

  • For olive oil, I will add that not only should it be organic, extra virgin but also of cold extraction and not blended from many different countries, but only from one country! Greek olive oil along with Italian are the best, followed by Spanish olive oil.

  • Olive and Palm Oil are Fruit Oil. Palm Kernel Oil and most of other vegetable oil are seed oil. Palm Oil is still a better oil compared Olive oil where it has better smoke point too

    Also omga 6 does not cause inflammation if accompanied by omiga3.
    The two work together.

  • Extra virgem avocado oil is a very good source of MCT and omega 3 fatty acid. It has amazing health benefits when consumed in salads. You can use to cook too, but many nutrients will be lost.

  • Thank you for your videos, they’re very clear and thorough. How would you rate goose fat or cold-pressed rapeseed oil? It’s my understanding that ‘cold pressed’ is the purest form of oil, given no heat is used to speed the process, and therefore less likely to damage the oil.

  • Garbage canola oil????? Omg my nutritionist really misguided me. Are used to cook with olive oil all the time and the nutritionist really got mad and told me that it is toxic to cook with and replace canola oil and sunflower oil. And the worst thing is I am a thyroid patient but I also like to eat the goitrogenic vegetables and she told me never ever ever ever eat the goitrogenic vegetables. Not the research says that is absolutely fine to eat those vegetables And the research also sees canola oil how toxic it is. Really before listening to any nutritionist we should always listen to doctors like you and do more research on it

  • I get the worst stomach ache and GI distress eating vegetable oils. It has to be olive or avocado oil if not saturated fats for my stomach to be able to handle it.

  • Rice Bran oil holds up to high temperature, and is neutral. No?

    I do not fry food.

    I use it for the pan.

    If not that, then ghee (clarified butter),

    I am considering grass-fed grass finished hormone free beef lard.

  • Videos like these and a lot of reading got me finally to buy that jar of virgin coconut oil

    After that I realised how much I love the taste of coconuts:D

  • How many people you know constantly eat crunchy deep fried or “broasted” chicken and then ask what their health problems are give them a clue

  • A general question to the US people, what is the “organic” olive oil? I’m Italian and we don’t have the organic extra virgin oil. It’s what we call Bio, maybe?

  • I really can’t handle restaurant food anymore. The oils they use to cook with just tear me up. About the only thing I can handle is a steak as long as it is truly grilled and not put on a flat top griddle, since they just HAVE to use crap oil on the flat top.

    Love tallow, butter, ghee, and bacon grease though. Eggs cooked in bacon grease…������

    But…..great video!

  • I’ve seen in some research that some experts advise against coconut oil because it’s high in saturated fats. Could you explain how the benefits outweigh the negatives and risks of high cholestrol?

  • I was in the understanding that avocado oil was perfectly ok for cooking and as healthy as olive oil! Can you elaborate on that please? And thank you for your videos, I enjoy them so much.

  • Hey Kait, I have a question! If you have used veggie oil for some time does going carnivore keto help repair the damage the veggie oil did?

  • Hi Dr I am new to the whole scene but was considering finding a lifestyle doctor soon after quarantine is over and watch dr Eric berg and others on YouTube which promote the keto diet and some the carnivore and many people have had many positive benefits but a few I noticed in the comments said they had a stroke a few years on keto this one woman did it for 8 years than got two strokes and a heart attack and that concerns me greatly. I want to do keto to lose weight I’m around 200-210 not sure exactly and I also have a fatty liver and have seborrheic dermatitis mainly on the scalp. My scalp is so dry and brittle and my hair is also very dry and brittle like it’s lacking oil. I hear that keto can help with the dermatitis and people say their is no cure but some also say they did it and it hasn’t came back since starting keto. I also have heard a mix review of cholesterol hdl ldl etc etc I’m 21 I don’t know much about any of this I just want to be healthy and reap the benefits but also don’t want to lose my hair I’m losing some as is and scared keto will do that again doctor sorry for all the questions just really worried since it’s hard to find answers now a days I just want to live a healthy life

  • What is your take on what the health on Netflix? Also does it bother you when your husband eats something that you don’t think is healthy??

  • I suspect that those huge jugs of cheap cooking oil wind up in those little mom & pop restaurants. Even better restaurants cut corners in so many regards such as mixing canola oil with olive oil to save money. These days, I skip eating out as much as possible. After spending many years in the military as an aircrew member, we were constantly on the “road” and had to eat mostly military contractor provided food. After leaving the military I worked for ten years as a corporate pilot which also meant spending time on the “road” sleeping in noisy hotels and eating “airport” food. Once my weight hit 205, I simply had to quit that career and work at home. Glad I did and glad that through going keto and IF, my weight is down to a very healthy level, blood work is back to normal and instructed through my doctor to toss the medications. Food can be poison or done right, very healthy. Looking at most foods at Costco, the major supermarket chains or even Whole Foods, one has to be extremely choosy.

  • My god! good thing I get to watch this video. I’ve been trying to figure out which one should I use between pomace and regular olive oil. Thanks for introducing the Avocado oil Erwan! This is really helpful.:)

  • What about cold pressed, first pressed, olive oil? I don’t understand how is that chemically processed or is it just a marketing scheme? Thank you!

  • hi Erwan! great video, very informative! I didn’t know that canola oil is very bad for our health. yes I do have acid reflux ��. and I thought that Extra Virgin Olive Oil is much better for sauteing or frying eggs than pure olive oil and pomace.

  • Use: Saturated oils for cooking, can tolerate/is stable at higher heat
    Coconut oil (extra virgin)
    Avocado oil (higher smoke oil)
    MCT oil

    Avoid: Unsaturated oils with lower smoke points, less stable, form free radicals
    Vegetable oils (polyunsaturated fats, least stable in heat when cooking)
    Olive oil good oil but use for non-cooking purposes
    Canola oil controversial (highly refined, linked to inflammation)
    Soybean oil
    Corn oil

  • Maybe they were dying less, because the people eating most vegetable oils tend to care more about their health and don’t eat fast food etc.

  • I went to the referenced site, but couldn’t find much on GRAPESEED OIL, which I understood was a good choice because of its high heat tolerance. What do you think of using grapeseed oil to sauté?

  • Thats the issue….I cant remember to write down on a daily basis the exact foods I ate by the end of the day; so these studies are bogus and completely worthless. I cannot believe they make it into any medical journals anymore 800,000 people or 100 people. What a collosal waste of time, energy and grant money.

  • Don’t forget about “hidden” vegetable oil in processed foods. I’m talking about TV dinners, Doritos, Cheetos, and other snacks and processed foods. Even eating out is a no-no. This is a harsh position to take, but it’s the honest truth.

    I’ve been avoiding vegetable oil for a year now, and cooking only with lard and butter. And my lifelong dandruff problem went away completely. I am 49.

  • For olive oil, I will add that not only should it be organic, extra virgin but also of cold extraction and not blended from many different countries, but only from one country! Greek olive oil along with Italian are the best, followed by Spanish olive oil.

  • I have to say that I’m getting different information from different places which is conflicting and confusing. Saturated fats are more stable and better, but saturated fats can lead to heart disease. I’m trying to lose a bit of weight and have been doing a bit of research and have found your channel very informative, but I’m getting the impression that when dieting you can end up trading off one demon for another. An example of a site that seems to conflict with what you have said here https://www.livescience.com/59893-which-cooking-oils-are-healthiest.html It seems to be old information from maybe ten years ago, but I might be reading this all wrong.

  • Nice overview!
    May sound crazy ( for a keto-carnivore-guy ) but I don’t use any oil or fat for cooking. I usually simmer my stuff for a short time or eat it raw. My fat comes from pure suet or marrow, which I normally eat warmed, sometimes butter XD.

  • Excellent overview, thank you. This is a very proper channel! I actually use both olive and coconut oil for sautéing. The preferable virgin versions obviously have a lower smoking point than the refined ones, so I am very careful with the heat. I will recommend for everybody to invest in a thermometer gun (you can get it on Ebay for $15). I was baffled when I first noticed how easily the oil gets too hot and how helpful such thermometer is. Now I warm up the pan to 140 C./284 F., add the oil and immediately afterwards the vegestables. In regard of induction, pans differ in their conductivity. A given pan size, on a given setting, have its own surface temperature. This factor can be huge. Also, pans differ a great deal in regard of spot effect. If the pan doesn’t have much spot effect the whole surface ought to be covered. You will find out all of that with a thermometer gun.

  • Thanks Becky. I wonder, how should these oils be stored. Should coconut oil be kept in a fridge, and can these oils go rancid. What is their shelf life. Thanks for sharing.

  • You only cover vegi oil. How about animal oil? butter, ghee, lard etc? Also, I think you should NEVER use MCT for cooking due to the very low smoking point.

  • Dr. Becky, thank you for this information! But about canola oil, I buy the Spectrum brand, which is organic, expeller pressed and non-GMO, and the label says it has a high smoke point and can be used at temps up to 450 degrees. I tend to only use it for baking recipes which call for oil, rather than solid butter.

  • how do you take the fat information and relate it bake to no cooking applications 100 grams of Walnuts has a total of 65 grams fat of which 47 grams is polyunsaturated, does that make Walnuts a bad choice because the polyunsaturated fat will oxidise?
