by Mitun Mukherjee Milkio food product

You may have heard about the smoke point of oils. The smoke point is also known as the burning point of oils. It is nothing but a specific temperature at which an oil s reaches its maximum temperature and starts to burn. The oil boiling point is something that you should know about before choosing cooking oil. The smoke point of oil varies depending on its purity and making process.


Refined oils have a natural taste and a transparent appearance. Some cooking oils are suitable for high-temperature cooking, while some are not. For example, sunflower, avocado, ghee, sesame, etc., offer high smoke points (400 degrees F and higher). On the other hand, olive oil, butter, flaxseed oil, and walnut oil have a low smoke point. 


Before buying any cooking oil, one should consider its smoke point and nutritional value. Oils start releasing harmful free radicals into the cooked dish when heated past its smoke point. Proper knowledge about the oil boiling point will give you a clear idea of choosing one, looking for healthy cooking oil? You can use ghee as a regular cooking oil. It is not only delicious but healthy at the same time.
