    Best oil to fry with? Olive, Flaxseed, Cocounut?

    Shop Now
    Hey guys,

    So I've been frying most my food in olive oil but find it iritates my throat and can taste it to much..

    Wondered what the healthiest oil option I had. I was thinking of using flaxseed oil for omega 3 benefits, does it have much taste?

    I don't want to use coconut oil because I don't like the taste.

    Thoughts,

    Thanks. Steve

    Yep lard.
    Ghee is good too (butter with milk solids removed)

    Are you buying unrefined coconut oil? It has no taste.

    Never fry with olive oil, it has a low smoke point. Lard is best.

    Whats the difference between coconut oil (the solid stuff) and unrefined in regards with health benefits.

    Lard you say? Why pick that over other choice?

    Also, Flaxseed was something I was definitely considering, why shouldnt I choose that option?

    All coconut oil is solid (when cold). Unrefined is processed differently and has no taste.
    Dont fry the flaxseed oil.

    Any difference in health benefits between refined and unrefined?

    Also, why not flaxseed oil?
