Choose The Right Cooking Oil With This Comparison Chart

There are so many cooking oils to choose from. Some are supposedly healthier than others, some are better for cooking at high heat and others better used as dressings. This chart tells you at a glance what you need to know about cooking oils.Developed by nutritionist Andy Bellatti and food writer Andrew Wilder, the Cooking Oil Comparison Chart focuses on two main properties of oils: temperature sensitivity (for whether an oil is best for high heat purposes like stir-fry or for salads) and healthfulness (prioritise oils considered heart-healthy, avoid “bad” saturated fats). You can read about the science behind the chart on Bellatti’s blog.

There are some interesting notes and tips about some of the oils in the chart too, such as buying olive oil in tin cans, or buying flax and hemp oil refrigerated.
