Types of vegetable oils and their use
There is a huge variety of vegetable oils: sunflower, olive, linseed, hemp, thistle oil and so on. All of these, of course, have different properties. But most importantly, what unites them – the presence of beneficial unsaturated fatty acids that give calorie butter. C using these acids and construction of cell membranes occurs and phospholipids. And our brains are most sensitive to the lack of such acids in an organism.
Linseed oil on its biological value is the clear leader, since it contains a huge amount of unsaturated fatty acids. This is an ideal natural remedy for the prevention and treatment of atherosclerosis, coronary heart disease and many other diseases associated with impaired blood flow, thrombosis and cancer of various localization. The product contains linolenic acid (50% -70%) and vitamin E (50mg / 100g). Daily rate – one or two tablespoons of oil per day.
The method of production of vegetable oils
The most valuable are the unrefined vegetable oil first cold pressing. They retained all valuable vitamins, essential amino acids, minerals, polyunsaturated fatty acids (omega-3 and omega-6) and others. Prepared these oils pressing method at low temperatures without the use of chemicals or cleaning or for preservation, or for impart color and odor. Cold pressing is the most gentle method. All biologically valuable and active constituents of grain or fruit “squeezed” together with vegetable oil. In the resulting press cake left after extraction, for the most part, only the fiber. The greater part of vitamins and other biologically active substances “flows” into the oil.
Now, consider the refined oil. In modern industry, there are two methods of refining: physical and chemical. In the physical method used adsorbents. A chemical is used alkalis. Because of the simplicity of the method most commonly used chemical method. Everyone knows that the refined fats harmful to the body. Therefore, they should not get involved. In addition, refined oils, and more specifically, almost no oil calories absorbed by the body.
