Palm oil and groundnut oil, which is healthier and better? What is the difference between palm oil and groundnut oil?
Growing up, we were made to believe that groundnut oil is not good for our health, that we should rather make use of palm oil. It’s healthy. And I have just read that new research shows that palm oil is not good for our health. Wetin we go do now? Abi we should stop taking oil gaba daya?.
Groundnut oil is actually healthier than palm oil according to my food and nutrition lecturer. He said, palm oil contain higher amounts of bad cholesterol than groundnut oil. Bad cholesterol is bad for the her.
Well, the news out their was that palm oil is better than groundnut oil…. However, the in latter found out that that claim is not true at all. #Groundnut oil is #healthier, better and contains less cholesterol compared to #palm oil.
I saw a research paper conducted in 2015 and published on the Journal of American Society of Nutrition. It clearly stated that palm oil is laden with saturated fat and raises blood cholesterol compared to vegetable oil and ground nut oil. I was shocked. That means groundnut oil is actually richer, healthier and better than palm oil.
I know most us attach attach sentimental value to palm oil (red oil), but the truth is, vegetable oil and ground nut oil is actually better and healthier than palm oil. All the studies I have checked support this my claim. Very it.
Too many processed brands of groundnut oil out there and also groundnut oil has more cholesterol than red oil…. It is surprising that research on the differences between palm oil and groundnut oil says groundnut oil is healthier. It came as a rude shock to me.
For sure, #ground nut oil is healthier than #palm oil according to medical experts but the reason groundnut oil is still popular is because it is the oil used to nurture this generation but this does not make red oil better.
