This is a question we get asked all the time, and we don’t have one clear answer because there are actually lots of options depending on what your cooking needs are.

That’s why we’re putting together a guide that will cover:

1. A Lesson on Fat: Saturated, Monounsaturated, Polyunsaturated

2. How Oils are Made

3. Oils to Avoid

4. Best Oils for Cooking (Fat and Smoke Point / Cooking Method Infographic)
