Made n Enjoyed
Hello readers,

"Know Your" series started here on JCO in June 2012. First theme was Know Your Flours. Our blogger friends guest-hosted that theme with so much enthusiasm and so many of you took part as well to make this theme hugely successful.

After those achievements we didn't look back and started another theme in same series. It was Know your Natural sweetness. Once again this theme proved it's success.

Our third theme was Know Your Dairy, and that was finished just last month, which was hugely successful and  enjoyed by every guest host and participant.

And now that we are confident in hosting events, we are striking on our fourth theme Know Your Cooking fats, and we are starting that this month..There will be a three theme

1. Cooking Oil
2. Butter
3. Margarine

According to health experts every human being should consume their food in 5 parts. We should eat a variety of food to get the energy, vitamins, minerals, protein and fibre to maintain good health. Our daily food intake should include carbohydrates, fruit and vegetables, dairy products, nuts and meat products ( only for non veg people ) and fats, which you should consume sparingly. So basically, for good health you need them all.........
Fats are a type of nutrient that you get from your diet. It is essential to eat some fats, though it is also harmful to eat too many.
The fats you eat give your body energy that it needs to work properly. During exercise, your body uses calories from carbohydrates you have eaten. But after 20 minutes, exercise then depends on calories from fat to keep you going.
You also need fat to keep your skin and hair healthy. Fat also helps you absorb vitamins A, D, E, and K, the so-called fat-soluble vitamins. Fat also fills your fat cells and insulates your body to help keep you warm.
The fats your body gets from your food gives your body essential fatty acids called linoleic and linolenic acid. They are called "essential" because your body cannot make them itself, or work without them. Your body needs them for brain development, controlling inflammation, and blood clotting.
Fat has 9 calories per gram, more than 2 times the number of calories in carbohydrates and protein, which each have 4 calories per gram. That is why foods that are high in fat are called "fattening."
All fats are made up of saturated and unsaturated fatty acids. Fats are called saturated or unsaturated depending on how much of each type of fatty acid they contain. ( source - Medline Plus )

Importance Of Cooking Oil

All Indian foods preparation is said to be essential without foods preparation oil. Every bowl usurps some variety of foods preparation oil, while some believe that more the oil, better the flavor. No doubt, more and more oil preferences great in foods, but let not flavor take over your health. Hence as you know the Importance of foods preparation oil starts with the fact that is holds all the substances better. When a few bay results in, curry results in, spice up etc. are put into the oil, the perfume oil produces is wonderful.

Different substances bring about a different fragrance and hence it relies on what you plan to prepare and thus operate the perfume. Take For instance; you may not want your lovely bowl to fragrance strong or your tandoor curry to fragrance lovely. Besides providing in perfume to the bowl prepared oil chefs the foods, means it does not keep it raw. Most Indians do not like raw foods and hence need their foods to be prepared and this process is absolutely done by the oil. To prepare the foods sometimes there may be more intake of oil while sometimes less.

In addition, oil utilisation relies on the amount prepared. Obviously two types of oil will not prepare a kg of vegetables. However, the world has been modifying ever since the idea of healthier foods preparation has taken off. Everybody wants to have healthier foods that underline smaller use of oil. Two types must do the job, whether little of excess amount, so even if the veggie is fresh it is fine. Par boiled principles too have taken the country, where the bowl is not prepared; keeping the natural vitamins unchanged which is otherwise lost when it is prepared. Therefore, after analysing the importance of food, we find that edible oil is very important ingredient of food. In India, people love to eat oily food as it offers more test as comparison to simple non-oily food. However, you should be aware that excess of oil-food is not good for health.

    1. Lovely jagruthi, nice event will try to link in...

    2. Serious issue, this! And one I've long been interested in. I wrote a post in Feb 2012 on which are the healthiest oils and fats to use in the kitchen- some of the facts I turned up in my research are quite surprising; for instance did you know that refined oils are actually less harmful to deep fry with than unrefined oils? Can link that post here if you want (I know it's not a recipe) or will link in other recipe(s)- happy to participate- just let me know if you want the cooking oils article.
