Are Modern Cooking and Baking Fats Really Healthy?

While it might come as a surprise to you cooking fats are quite an important topic to look at when discussing the current health status of the average American and what can be done to improve our health as a people group through action on the individual level.

In modern times the type of fats that have come into vogue for use in cooking and baking are quite different than the types of oils and fats that our ancestors were accustomed to eating. It is hard to argue that we have improved in this area given the rise of obesity, diabetes, heart disease and other chronic diseases that were not seen in the past on the scale that they are today. While we seem to have advanced in the area of infectious disease prevention we have a whole new plague of infirmities sometimes referred to as "diseases of modern civilization".

Induction Cooking Elements

Planning a kitchen remodel means there are plenty of options to choose and decisions to be made regarding the design and function of each aspect of the kitchen. An important decision regarding your cooking appliances and method of heating now has a third option. Induction heating is gaining popularity as costs have gone down and demand has gone up, and a kitchen remodel is the perfect time to look at adding induction heating to your home.

For decades, American kitchens have chosen between electric or gas ranges. Until today, there was never any other option, and so there was little research necessary into the benefits of either. Induction heating is more efficient (and cost effective) than both gas and electric heating because it uses magnetism and electric currents to heat. Gas and electric heating both use transfer heating, which is heating up the whole cooking area, while induction heating actually converts the pot or pan into a cooking device. By changing the current of the magnetic metal in a pot or pan just by being near it, induction heating affects only the object doing the cooking, and hands and other objects that would be burned by a flame are unaffected.
