Fatty Acids

Fatty Acids

Essential fatty acids{commonly referred to as omega3 and omega 6oils) are vital to health. These can be obtained from parental seed oils, like linseed or hemp, but are generally best obtained as a mixture. Our modern diets and food processing has meant that most people are deficient in these oils and often have more omega 6 than omega 3 oils. There are other fatty acids and their derivatives (which can be obtained from food but more concentrated in fish oils and other seed oils) which can have beneficial effects on our health. Most oils used in cooking, and taken to high temperatures, can deteriorate and produce some harmful components. Coconut oil has become popular because it cannot form harmful derivatives at high temperatures and also as a low temperature food it has other health benefits. For culinary purposes there are advantages from olive oil and other vegetables oils provided that they have been cold pressed and preferably of organic origin.
