There are a lot of cooking oils to be aware of. Some are good and some are not so good. Here's what you need to know. 


Checking behind the scenes: flip over to the ingredients. A good sign to start is if you see that they are cold pressed.


Grape seed oil that is cold pressed is good. 


The always popular olive oil is a seed oil. Olive oil that is cold pressed is good, but olive oil can also be manufactured in a hexane extract and then it becomes a problem.


There are some good canola oils.


Avoid corn oils all together.


You don't need a lot of High Heat Stable oils. Stay away from high heat oil if you can. Just keep walking down that aisle.
