Vast Collection of Cooking Oils and Vinegar
Oil and vinegar are both essential culinary tools that are a necessary staple in every kitchen and pantry. Different cooking oils and different kinds of vinegar (rice, red wine, or apple cider) can add an interesting, unique flavor to the simplest of meals (like a salad). They are popularly used as dressing for salads, pasta, and vegetables.
Best Cooking Oils for Health & Well-Being
Olive oil and avocado oil are some of the best cooking oils from a nutritional standpoint – high in monounsaturated fatty acids, they boast a better omega-3 to omega-6 ratio than vegetable oils like corn, soybean, and canola and provide many health benefits contained in their natural polyphenol and antioxidant content. Many consider olive oil to be the best oil to cook with – many people assume olive oil is too unstable to cook with at higher temperatures, but this is actually not true as it has quite a high smoke point. Coconut oil, olive oil, and avocado oil all offer a solution to high-temperature cooking with healthy oil.
Wide Variety of Uses
Most people use cooking oils on a daily basis since they may be used to cook a variety of foods including meat, seafood, eggs, vegetables, sauces, and even some grains. Due to their implications on overall health when being used so frequently, it is important to select the healthiest oil one can while still considering the flavor profile and benefit to the dish being cooked. At the same time, oils like olive, avocado, and coconut can be used outside of the kitchen as skincare oils, as a salad dressing, or even for hair care.
