Yeah veggie oil is a super heated, chemically treated industrial byproduct invented only about 100 years ago.



Worst is canola oil. Made from rapeseeds,
it was industrial oil for machinery. They
discovered if they heated it to the temp
of the surface of the sun, humans could
tolerate it, barely. Any oil squeezed from
seeds is bad for you. As well as corn and
peanut oil.

Lard is the best stuff for frying, just like
it was in 1900. Completely natural, just
like butter. I grew eating oleo, it's amazing
I made it out of grade school. People
still eat that crap, the supermarket is
loaded with it.

Interesting article about olive oil.

A lot of it is adulterated by the Italian mafia.

Seems the only way to be sure is to caugh up some extra and buy it straight from the producer.

A better solution might be to go with California olive oil.

When I was a kid my grandma switched to Country Crock. My grandfather threw that stuff out. He claimed he might as well use WD-40. Turns out he was pretty much correct.

Country 'crock' indeed. A crock
of crap. Hilarious.

Well, hope everyone lived that commented in the last 3 pages. Otherwise, loved those tornado things from 711. Really loved the pork egg rolls, reminded me of Thanksgiving and mom's sausage/onion/celery mix used for the stuffing. Very peppery, loved it.

I worked at a restaurant long ago, didn't really approve of them offering olive oil, but it was actually just a little olive oil with mostly vegetable oil, intentionally mislabeled of course.

California Olive Ranch is the best widely available brand Iíve been able to find, and itís not crazy expensive.

Do not buy any olive oil in a clear glass/plastic container like the Walmart brand, light will destroy it.

Good olive oil should smell like olives. Bad/fake olive oil smells like crayons.

Good and bad as with legitimate and counterfeit or pure and adulterated are attributes the marketplace rewards only if the buyer is aware and wealthy. Few buyers are.

Sunlight, yeah, artificial light no. So keep
it out of the sun. Plastic is fine if you
use it within a year.
