The Things You Should Know About Frying


Today it’s all about frying, as I’ve been asked so many times to talk about it. Down below I will cover the most stirring questions about frying, plus you will learn the things you should know about frying.



What is Frying? – Frying includes cooking food in a large amount of fat (typically that would be oil) , at a high temperature. There are many different styles to fry such as…

Deep Frying: this style makes the food totally submerge in huge amounts of oil and sometimes fat for it to cook, in mostly extreme temperatures.

Pan Frying: Pan frying is cooking the food in a shallow pan, but only using very small amounts of oil.

Sautéing: Sautéing is a way of frying at speed, as you rapidly cook the food in hot oil in again, a shallow pan.

Searing: For searing you put the food on a extremely hot surface with oil to quicken the surface you are cooking on.



Frying popularity- Frying is very popular way of preparing food because it’s fast and the actual skin has coating which maintains a seal, which then leads to the insides remaining on the whole moist.

In a lot of people’s minds it also makes the food taste nicer. However, not all foods that are popular, as you may know, are necessarily  good for you, plus not all foods are appropriate for frying either.



What Do You Mean?- Fish for example; the fatty fish type are the best source for omega- 3 fatty acids, which have big health benefits. These types of fats are prone to damage at very high temperatures.

Another example is frying with such trash like Vegetable oils (Click Here)  which is detrimental to your health.
