Cooking With Fats, Part 1

Because of the chemical makeup of healthy fats, not all are ideal for cooking.

Some go bad when they’re heated, or have a low “smoke point” (the temperature at which they’ll start smoking and smelling pretty nasty).

Better for high heat

For very high-heat cooking, such as searing meats, try:

  • Clarified butter (butter with the milk solids strained out) or ghee
  • Grapeseed oil
  • Avocado oil

Better for medium heat

For medium-heat cooking jobs like sautéing or simmering, try:

  • Regular butter
  • Coconut oil
  • Extra-virgin olive oil

Don’t cook with these

For things like salad dressings, which stay cold or room temperature, try cold-pressed nut and seed oils, such as:

  • Hemp seed oil
  • Pumpkin seed oil
  • Walnut oil
  • Hazelnut oil
  • Flax seed oil
