What is Blended Oil and how is it better for your health?
The right cooking oil has been the subject of discussion for a long time. Earlier sunflower oil was the unanimous choice of cooking oil for homes, since it was affordable and considered to be healthy. Also, its high smoke point meant that Indian homes could use it for deep-frying. But as time passed people started using healthier alternatives like olive, corn and rice bran oils. Though they were much more nutritious, some of them were expensive and some had lower smoke points, which was a big deterrent for the average Indian household that loves deep-fried food.
In the meantime, research suggested that changing cooking oils and not sticking to one type of oil, was better for your health. Enter Blended oil, oil that’s a mix of two or more oils. Blended oils offer the best of both worlds, the deep-frying capability of high smoke point oils, and the nutrition and taste of the healthier alternatives.
Though there are various blends of cooking oils available, the one that’s considered most healthy is the olive/corn blend. Cardia Life, from Kalueeswari, is one such blend. While it has the properties of olive oil like higher monounsaturated fats and natural vitamin E, it also has omega 3, omega 6 and high smoke point derived from corn oil. This perfect blend of properties from both oils makes Cardia Life good for your heart and also improves immunity.
Unlike virgin olive oil, which is very expensive and cannot be used for deep-frying, Cardia Life is much more affordable and can be used for deep-frying as well. While there are various blend ratios available in market, Cardia Life uses the ideal ratio, that makes it the perfect choice for the urban dwellers who have limited time to focus on their health.
So, the next time you’re out to buy a cooking oil, try Cardia Life and blend health into your lifestyle, because #BlendedIsBetter.
