Fats and Oils

Butter:

  • Use sparingly, never use margarine

Extra-virgin olive oil:

  • Use for flavour in cooking but keep the heat low, olive oil has a low smoking point

Grapeseed oil:

  • Excellent for cooking at a high heat, as it’s smoking point is very high

Other cooking oils (coconut, sesame, sunflower/safflower):

  • Useful in baking or high heat cooking, such as stir fry

Salad oils (hemp, flax, nut oil, avocado):

  • Never heat these oils
