Microblog: How Fat Is Made? The Vegetable Oil Variety

If you have @CarnivoreCure, make sure to download the guide to cooking fats. (link in book)

🚨The World Health Organization says to limit saturated fats. They also say to eat soybean, canola and vegetable oils. WHO loves canola oil.

🌼Canola oil was a cheap alternative to olive oil, since saturated fats were out. McDonald’s used to fry their fries in lard but now use toxic veg oils.

1️⃣ CLEAN & GRIND
Seeds are washed, dehulled and deskinned, then ground with heat (unstable oils go rancid, 1st exposure to heat)

2️⃣ COLD PRESS
They are put into a screw press (temps 130-200°F).
Most oils go rancid when temps >125°F.

3️⃣ EXTRACTION
Chemical solvent is used to extract oil out of remaining seed (seed cake) (3rd exposure to heat)

4️⃣ RBD PROCESS: removes odor, increases smoke point and shelf life

⚠️REFINE: Heats “plastic” oils (107-188°F) with chemicals sodium hydroxide, and carbonate to remove color, bitterness and odor (4th exposure)

⚠️DE-GUM: Heat oils with steam, water, acid to remove gums (188-206°F, 5th exposure)

⚠️BLEACH: Oil is filtered through bleaching clay, removing colors (and nutrients)

⚠️DEODORIZE: Deodorizes oxidized oils because they smell rancid (440-485°F, 6th exposure)

If you cook with this oil and heat leftovers: 7th & 8th exposure to heat.

FUN FACTS:
🎉90% of canola is GMO. Monitoring oils for potential contamination (if it still contains glyphosate residue) is not required.

🎉The concern for PUFAs is with canola oil. With the heat and light, they cause free radicals in the body causing oxidative stress and inflammation.

🎉Vegetable (canola) oils contain low levels of trans-fats because of the deodorization process. Small amounts of the unsaturated fatty acids transform into trans fatty acid isomers (partially hydrogenated oil).

Hello, shortening and margarine.

🎉Trans fats of <0.5g can be labeled as zero. 36lbs of fats will have a sizeable amount of trans fats. (avg amount consumed per person annually)

❓Should we be refining, bleaching and deodorizing our food?

Our best fight against 🦠 is a healthy body. So why is the world’s leader of health recommending toxic fats?
