Healthy Cooking Oils Wichita KS
Council Bluffs, KS
Health Matters�Ode to Oils
By Lisa Turner
You know by now which oils are the healthiest choices. But did you know that each of these has a slightly different use? For example, while canola oil and olive oil are both healthy cooking oils, canola oil has a higher smoke point—the temperature at which heated oils begin to emit smoke and impart an acrid flavor and aroma to foods—than olive oil, so it’s best used for frying; olive oil has a lower smoke point, so it’s best used for dressings, or added after cooking. In general, refined oils have a higher smoke point. Unrefined oils retain all of their natural flavor, color, and aroma.
FLAVOR AND COLOR: Ranges from pale yellow with a mild flavor to deep greenish-gold with an intense olive fragrance and taste
USES: Use for sautéing at medium heat; don’t use for frying or high-heat cooking. Use “extra virgin” grades for sauces and salad dressings, and as finishing oils.
HEALTH BENEFITS: High in monounsaturated fats; can lower harmful LDL cholesterol levels while raising beneficial HDL levels.
FLAVOR AND COLOR: Mild, neutral flavor and pale color
USES: Use for sautéing and baking; for frying, use high-oleic varieties, which have the highest smoke point. Not ideal for salad dressings or sauces.
HEALTH BENEFITS: High in monounsaturated fats and rich in alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), a type of omega-3 fatty acid that may reduce the risk of heart disease.
FLAVOR AND COLOR: Full, slightly nutty flavor; white when refrigerated, clear at room temperature
USES: Use for sautéing, making sauces, and replacing butter in baking; don’t use for frying or high-heat cooking
HEALTH BENEFITS: Although it’s high in saturated fats, coconut oil may reduce total and harmful LDL cholesterol levels, while increasing beneficial HDL levels.
OIL: Red palm
FLAVOR AND COLOR:Orange-red in color with a rich, distinctive flavor
USES:Use for high-heat sautéing and frying, and as “shortening” in baking. Not the best oil for dressings or sauces.
HEALTH BENEFITS:High in antioxidant carotenoids and tocopherols, red palm oil may lower total cholesterol while increasing HDL levels.
FLAVOR AND COLOR:Nutty and rich with a slightly bittersweet finish
USES: Use in salad dressings, in baked goods and sauces, and as a finishing oil; not for high-heat cooking and frying
HEALTH BENEFITS: High in polyunsaturated fats and ALA, walnut oil has a heart-protective effect.

39th Annual Historical Dainty
Dates: 7/27/2013 – 7/27/2013
The Dainty contest was first introduce to Germantown by German immigrants that settled in Germantown in the 1860's. The children's game at that time was revised in 1971 for adults 45 and older. It was revised by Mr. George Hauck and Mr. Charlie Vittner for a customer appreciation day for Mr. Haucks' family store, which is still in operation today, since 1912. The game consist of a 3" stick tapered on each end and a 3' stick tapered on one end. Object of the game is to lay the smaller stick on the road and hit the tip of it by using the larger stick making it airbourne. The person that hits it the longest distance win's the huge trophy. The shortest hit hops the distance of the longest hit on one foot with a basket of lemons.There is always live music from various bands on a yearly basis, the best homemade bologna snadwich's, good ole pickles, potato chips and cotton candy for the children, and always very cool refreshemnts for the adults. It is now played in the area of Schnitzelburg, which was incoroprated in 1971 as well. Feel free to contact me Gary Allen @1-502- 551-2402, for futher details if needed.
