The problem with soybean oil, canola oil, cottonseed oil, corn oil, grapeseed oil, safflower oil

, and other similar oils is that they are mostly composed of polyunsaturated fats which leaves them prone to oxidation and free radical production when exposed to heat and light. Processed polyunsaturated oils are the most inflammatory inside our bodies because of their high reactivity to heat and light. This inflammation is what causes many of our internal problems such as heart disease, diabetes, and other degenerative diseases
To help show the difference between ³good´ and ³bad,´ here is the list of ingredients on a package of Arnold 100% Whole Wheat Bread:

³Whole Wheat Flour, Water, Gluten, High Fructose Corn Syrup, Yeast, Cracked Wheat, Salt, Partially Hydrogenated Soybean Oil, Molasses, Raisin Juice Concentrate, Ethoxylated MonoAnd Diglycerides Calcium Propionate (Preservative), Honey, Soy Lecithin.´

Here is the list of ingredients on the back of a package of another Arnold brand bread, this time called Arnold Natural 100% Whole Wheat Bread:

³Unbleached Enriched Wheat Flour [Flour, Malted Barley Flour, Reduced Iron, Niacin, Thiamin Mononitrate (Vitamin B1), Riboflavin (Vitamin B2) Folic Acid], Water, Cracked Wheat, Whole Wheat Flour, Yeast, Barley, Honey, Fructose, Wheat Gluten, Partially Hydrogenated Soybean Oil, Salt, Wheat Bran, Malt, Ethoxylated Mono-And Diglycerides, High Fructose Corn Syrup, Calcium Propionate (Preservative), Caramel Color, Whey, Soy Flour, Calcium Carbonate, Soy Lecithin, Nonfat Milk.´

And now, here are the ingredients on the back of the package of whole wheat pita bread I ate today:

Stone Ground Whole Wheat Flour, Water, Yeast, Salt, Calcium Propionate

It's ok if a polyunsaturated fat isn't processed such as in whole foods like various nuts and seeds... In that case it's not inflammatory, and is a great source of healthy polyunsaturated fats for you. By the way, omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids are both polyunsaturates. Your best bet is to choose raw nuts and seeds whenever possible to avoid the oxidation of polyunsaturated fats that can occur during roasting of nuts and seeds

. they have very little polyunsaturates and are mostly composed of natural saturated fats which are the least reactive to heat/light and therefore the least inflammatory in your body from cooking use. This all goes directly against what you hear in mainstream health talk..Saturated fats are actually the healthiest oils to cook with! Why? Because they are much more stable and less inflammatory than polyunsaturated oils. That's also why natural butter (NOT margarine) is one of the best fats for cooking.. and saturated fats from tropical oils are actually good for you as they contain mostly medium chain triglycerides (MCTs) which are lacking in most people's diets.. To summarize. so moderately stable. and falsely believe that saturated fats are bad for you. your best cooking or baking fats are generally butter or tropical oils such as palm or coconut oil... grapeseed. etc. Lauric acid is even being studied currently in medical studies for controlling contagious diseases. cottonseed... because most health professionals don't truly understand the biochemistry of fats. In fact. are the least healthy for cooking or baking. This is why tropical oils such as palm and coconut oils are best for cooking.. when in fact. lauric acid is one of the abundant MCTs in tropical oils and is known to strengthen the immune system. The mostly polyunsaturated oils such as soybean. safflower. .. Olive oil (extra virgin preferably) is ok for lower cooking temps as it's mostly monounsaturated. they are actually neutral in most instances.
