The boiling point of oils is also known to be the smoke point of the oil. When cooking oils are subjected to heat in the presence of air and water, it starts smoking which can be dangerous for the health. Cooking an oil past its boiling point or smoke point can cause the release of harmful free radicals. When you notice your cooking oil has started boiling, immediately remove it from the heat.
However, not all cooking oils have the same boiling point. The smoke point of an oil is an important feature. Ghee has a 250⁰C smoke point while butter has a 150⁰C smoke point. Coconut oil has a smoke point of 204⁰C. While cooking one should choose the cooking oil carefully. If you love to cook on a high flame then you shouldn't use a low smoke point cooking oil like olive oil.

Make sure to have ghee under strict moderation as it is extremely high in calories. This was all about the boiling point of oils and how to pick the suitable one for your cooking.
