Some Basics About Healthy Oil

In 2009, I was interviewed on Channel U,
to comment about some simple facts on
good healthy oils.

Below is a short video clip below (Mandarin),
extracted from the TV series "Essential 7".

In the video clip it was mentioned that:

- oil is best consumed in form of natural food
(ie seeds, grains and fatty fruits)

- good healthy oil should not be heated
to avoid structural damage and generation of carcinogens

- when heating is needed,
specific type of oils are required,
and it should not be overly heated still.

- one way to minimise oil damage during stir-fry
is to simmer thin layer of water on the wok,
put in the veggies and sprinkle oil on top of the veggies

Hope you enjoy the clip =)
Happy watching!!

Well regards,
Kee Yew
