I usually cook my chicken outside on my back yard grill.
Lately I have been cooking teh chicken in the kitchen using olive oil. Is this Ok? Does the olive oil loses its characterstic due to high temperature?

Thanks for sharing,

Your fine. The only thing to remember is to add it to your daily calorie total.

"Yes, if you heat olive oil to high temperatures, it hydrogenates itself and becomes mostly saturated.
Also, the omegas are sensitive to heat (omega 3-6-9), that's why flax oil should always stay refrigerated and never heated."

This is the answer which I got from someone I know at the gym!


My question is: Does it really hydrogenates if I cook my chicken? Of course will be a high temperature..
Could anyone clarify it for me ,please?

I knew that if you would cook the olive oil at high temperature ,it will lose some of its characteristic. I just wanted to be sure! Now I have the confirmation of Greaseman..

"monounsat oils (soybean, peanut, olive) have high flashpoints and are quite stable for modest lower temp frying "

I think that flax oil is refrigerated, because it tends to get rancid at room temperatures. I think that it is safe to stir fry with olive oil. I think you run into problems if you deep fry with olive oil.

ahhh but it does not hydrogenate( that is a reductive process)
but instead it forms oxo-compounds and peroxy fatty acids. These compounds are pro-oxidants and thus actually not good for you ...lol

No,no,no..
I don't tell you to leave it for 1hour to 300C...

And if it would have to become something,it would be trans and not saturated..
