What to look out for when buying organic and health-promoting oil?
If you want to choose an organic oil, it is worth paying attention to a few key criteria. First of all, it is important to choose oils that are organically grown and have not been chemically or genetically treated. Such oils are labelled with an organic certificate, which confirms that they come from crops grown according to organic farming principles.
It is also important to choose cold-pressed oils, as this way they retain more nutrients than refined oils. It is also worth paying attention to the shelf life and how the oil is stored - it is best to choose products sealed in dark bottles and stored in the fridge once opened.
As for the type of oil, it all depends on individual preferences and needs. For salads and other light dishes, it is advisable to choose oils with unsaturated fatty acids, such as pumpkin seed oil, linseed oil or rapeseed oil.
For frying and baking, oils with a higher smoke point, such as coconut oil or olive oil, are better. It is also worth trying out different types of oil and seeing which tastes and goes best with a particular dish.
