Some recipes use olive oil for baking. Olive oil is safe to use at baking temperature only. There seems to be varying opinions at what temperature the oven should reach, but reading over past posts most people heat their oven around 150C.You can read over past posts to get other opinions as well.
Some people fry with it, and it has been suggested to add a little water to the pan to prevent the temperature from getting too high. Ideally dry frying is the safest way to cook if you are needing to fry. If you put "dry fry" in the search box you will get some good posts to read on the subject.
â€˜Good sugarsâ€™ are sometimes known as unrefined sugars. Though that is a little misleading. In almost every instance, they have been slightly refined during their processing (but nowhere near as much as refined sugars). Because of this, unrefined sugars are often referred to as raw sugars.
The biggest benefit of raw sugar is that it retains many of the nutrients that it had before its minimal processing. This means that there is actually a reason to put it in your body other than just its taste. A few of these nutrients include phosphorus, calcium, iron, magnesium, & potassium.
Another reason that unrefined sugars are better than refined sugars is because they havenâ€™t been extensively processed. No chemicals are used in processing so there is no chance that youâ€™ll be consuming something that is dangerous to your body. In addition, the bone char step is also discarded (since the sugar doesnâ€™t need to be unnaturally bleached).
Raw honey & raw maple syrup are two excellent examples of raw sugars. Obviously they canâ€™t be used in everything but they do make an excellent sugar substitute in many cases. If you drink coffee or tea, just think about how many spoonfulâ€™s of sugar you could cut from your daily diet if you used a small quirt of honey as a sweetener instead.
