When it comes to healthy eating, we cannot deny the love for crispy, deep-fried foods, but do you know when it’s time to change your cooking oil and which cooking oil you’ll be able to use for a long time with it still being healthy?
The longevity of your cooking oil depends on many factors, but most cooking oils need to be changed after eight to 10 uses. If you’re planning to reuse your oil, immediately take it off the heat after every use, strain it, and store it correctly in a cool,dark place for the next use.
Cooking oil undergoes chemical changes during heat and light exposure that can break the oil down into toxic chemicals, so it is important to understand the meaning in the change of colour. When the oil is very light to medium in colour it is safe for use, but you will notice a change in the crisp once the oil darkens in shade. The food then begins to not look as appealing and is not as golden brown. At this time the stability and health aspects of the oil have changed and now would be the best time to change your cooking oil.
