it isn't inflation that is causing the rise in canola/vegeoil. Heat wave this summer, record low yield.

Is this a troll question? Look up how we got antibiotics.

This is the best vegetable oil I've used from a grocery store. Seems to be much more pure and even after multiple deep fries it doesn't give off the oxidizing smell and food doesnt get dark. I bought 5 containers of them last time they were on sale and after 2 years I'm on my 3rd
What's the ingredients?

The Unico is "Soybean Oil And/or Canola Oil And/or Corn Oil"

Prices for everything has been messed up for a while.

There was a post on insta by a chef saying how prices for oil, wings, take out containers and many other things are forcing her to increase prices.

If you are vegetarian/vegan then not much I can help.

If you eat meat save and hoard the fat.

If you eat lots of chicken then buying whole chicken and butchering it yourself is worth it. Save the spine/bones/other inedible parts for chix stock. Skim and save the chix fat for cooking. If you are super frugal like me pick the bones clear of meat after making stock. Not much flavour left but throw it into your curry or what not to bulk it up.

Searing beef/pork for w.e? Dont use oil. Sear the fatty bits first. Plenty of oil, usually.

Bonus: Save all veg trimmings like onion end and skins and even carrot skins (make sure they are clean or wash). Keep them in an airtight container in the freezer and once you accumulate enough either throw it in your chix stock or make a vege stock just with the trimmings.

Air frying is an oxymoron. One cannot fry with air. Air fryers are glorified convection ovens.

Olive oil and vegetable oil are two different things. Vegetable oil is a cooking oil. You should definitely eat more olive oil but you probably shouldn't cook with it. It breaks down at such a low temperature even baking with it isn't wise.

Unless you're just eating raw or steamed this probably isn't the best advice. If you want to saute or make a stir fry and you only have EVO you're probably doing yourself more harm than good. There's a place for everything in moderation.

Precisely the awesomeness about the Extra virgin olive oil is that you can eat it at room temperature or cook it at pretty high temperatures and still conserve its good properties, whereas with any other oils you basically burn the oil generating bad substances for your body. This is not an opinion, it is science. Olive oil is the best for cooking and to eat raw. Another story is if you don't like the taste as much for desserts, where maybe you can use coconut oil.
