Infographic Low-down on Oils

I don’t know about you, but it seems like there is a huge amount of conflicting evidence out there about which oils and fats are safe to cook with and which really should ideally be enjoyed cold.

So, I was delighted when I stumbled across this fantastic infographic, courtesy of David McCandless of Information is Beautiful which clearly demonstrates the safe heating temperatures of all different sorts of cooking fats, as well as which are at risk of transforming into harmful trans-fats when heated. It is a really handy guide!
