Frying with olive oil:
If you do not usually cook with olive oil, it would be very useful to know that the correct frying with olive oil:
- Creates a crust, preventing its extensive absorption by the food
- Affects the heat-sensitive nutrients in food to a lesser extent than other cooking techniques.
- It prevents the extensive loss of water-soluble nutrients.
Due to its high content of monounsaturated fatty acids and natural antioxidants, olive oil is more resistant to high temperatures (up to 210oC). Furthermore, when kept in opaque containers in a cool place, olive oil can be kept for longer than any other vegetable oil and is not subject to rancidity. Thus, unlike other vegetable oils or butters, olive oil is ideal for frying food (at 180° C).
