8 Dangerous Things about Vegetable Oils


5. Vegetable Oils Have High Smoke Points
The smoke point is the temperature at which fat or oil becomes heated enough to release smoke.

However, when fat or oil reaches or goes past its smoke points, it can negatively impact the taste and aroma of food it is helping to prepare.
