Lard Is Good For You

I was hugely gemused to read that some "experts" have now decided that vegetable oils are dangerous for you (yet another cancer causing product), and that they recommend that we should be using olive oil, butter and lard to cook with as they are healthier.

This is what I have been saying all along!

Martin Grootveld, a professor of bioanalytical chemistry and chemical pathology, said that his research showed “a typical meal of fish and chips”, fried in vegetable oil, contained as much as 100 to 200 times more toxic aldehydes than the safe daily limit set by the World Health Organisation.

In contrast, heating up butter, olive oil and lard in tests produced much lower levels of aldehydes.

How interesting that Nanny's NHS advice is to replace “foods high in saturated fat with lower-fat versions” and warns against frying food in butter or lard, recommending instead corn oil, sunflower oil and rapeseed oil. Saturated fats raise cholesterol levels, increasing the risk of heart disease.

Prof Grootveld, of De Montfort University in Leicester, who carried out a series of experiments, is quoted by the Telegraph:
For decades, the authorities have been warning us how bad butter and lard was. But we have found butter is very, very good for frying purposes and so is lard.

People have been telling us how healthy polyunsaturates are in corn oil and sunflower oil. But when you start messing around with them, subjecting them to high amounts of energy in the frying pan or the oven, they undergo a complex series of chemical reactions which results in the accumulation of large amounts of toxic compounds.
What should we conclude form this volte farce in what we should/should not eat?

Simple, Nanny's advice should always be ignored as it is bollocks!

  1. I have now replaced olive oil with duck fat as I prefer the taste. I am not sure how to make sure I am cooking at around 350 degrees centigrade.
