    Default the benefits of olive oil

    Gleaned from the morning news...

    Adding olive oil to your diet may reduce your risk of stroke, a new
    study suggests.

    Researchers found that older people who used olive oil intensively --
    meaning they regularly cooked with it and used it in salad dressing --
    were 41 percent less likely to have a stroke than those who rarely
    consumed it.

    According to the text, the benefit may be due to a substitution
    effect, olive oil replacing more harmful fats. In that case, pills as
    a supplement won't work. (The study was done in France. The French eat
    lots of butter.)

    I imagine that other oils with similar fatty acid profiles would also

    And this is why I don't eat according to studies. For a while, all
    fat was evil, then it was only saturated fats, then it was saturated and
    mono-unsaturated, then it was all animal fats, then it was hydrogenated
    fats, then is was trans-fatty acids, then... Now we're back to eat as
    people used to eat before we did all these studies.

    Yep, full circle.

    I use real olive oil and real butter mostly, with some occasional
    coconut oil for pan frying, and Canola oil for deep frying. I just try
    to eat most everything in moderation, avoid deep fried foods for the
    most part, and watch portion sizes. What I really need is more exercise
    since sitting in front of a computer all day is anti-exercise.

    Chosing fats by type of fatty acid is a consideration in several types
    of common diet programs. Olive oil is high in monounsaturated fatty
    acids. The human body can convert and store saturates. The human body
    uses polyunsaturates and can store them. Transfats are bad. The human
    body can burn monounsaturates for fuel but can not store them. Any
    excess amount gets lost somehow. It's the main reason they are claimed
    to be more healthy than other types of fatty acids I think.

    According to http://curezone.com/foods/fatspercent.asp several types of
    nut oils are reasonably similar to olive oil when it comes to the
    percentage of monounsaturates. Almond, avocado, macadamia, cashew.
    None of those compete with olive oil for price. I've had almond and
    avocado oils for the tiny subtle flavor they add.

    I ran across a cookie recipe yesterday that uses olive oil rather than
    another type. Subbing a "healthier" oil for other fats sounds good to
    me, and I never would have considered it.

    Here's one of the OO cookie recipes. I don't eat cookies often, so I
    might try them, or not.

    Thanks, Cheryl... any time you see a dessertish recipe, please shoot
    it my way - ping, if necessary! Hubby likes an occasional
    treat/sweet, but is very good about avoiding animal fat so he doesn't
    get it very often.

    The article refers to a good study from a respected journal. Below is the
    absract from PubMed.
    We've used olive oil pretty much exclusively for years for that reason. The
    beneficial effect of EVO has been in the literature for some time. This is a
    good solid study establishing that. Olive oil doesn't take heat well without
    breaking down. Saute at high temps with canola, or peanut oil, or whatever.
    Olive oil is used, however, for almost everything else

    Neurology. 2011 Jun 15. [Epub ahead of print]

    "Olive oil consumption, plasma oleic acid, and stroke incidence: The
    Three-City Study."
    Samieri C, Féart C, Proust-Lima C, Peuchant E, Tzourio C, Stapf C, Berr C,
    Barberger-Gateau P.

    Abstract
    OBJECTIVE:
    To determine whether high olive oil consumption, and high plasma oleic acid
    as an indirect biological marker of olive oil intake, are associated with
    lower incidence of stroke in older subjects.
    METHODS:
    Among participants from the Three-City Study with no history of stroke at
    baseline, we examined the association between olive oil consumption (main
    sample, n = 7,625) or plasma oleic acid (secondary sample, n = 1,245) and
    incidence of stroke (median follow-up 5.25 years), ascertained according to
    a diagnosis validated by an expert committee.
    RESULTS:
    In the main sample, 148 incident strokes occurred. After adjustment for
    sociodemographic and dietary variables, physical activity, body mass index,
    and risk factors for stroke, a lower incidence for stroke with higher olive
    oil use was observed (p for trend = 0.02). Compared to those who never used
    olive oil, those with intensive use had a 41% (95% confidence interval
    6%-63%, p = 0.03) lower risk of stroke. In the secondary sample, 27 incident
    strokes occurred. After full adjustment, higher plasma oleic acid was
    associated with lower stroke incidence (p for trend = 0.03). Compared to
    those in the first tertile, participants in the third tertile of plasma
    oleic acid had a 73% (95% confidence interval 10%-92%, p = 0.03) reduction
    of stroke risk.
    CONCLUSIONS:
    These results suggest a protective role for high olive oil consumption on
    the risk of stroke in older subjects.

    Unless there's some beneficial "particle" specific to olives for the
    study, safflower oil is actually better than olive oil where fat is
    concerned. It's also neutral in flavor, making it more suitable in
    cookies or other foods, imho.

    Olive Oil (OO not EVOO)
    Fats per 100 grams:
    Saturated: 13.08 grams
    Monounsaturated: 72.961 grams
    Polyunsaturated: 10.523 grams

    Safflower oil
    Fats per 100 grams:
    Saturated: 7.541 grams
    Monounsaturated: 75.221 grams
    Polyunsaturated: 12.82 grams

    There's not just fatty caids in EVO oil: there are also polyphenols and
    other antioxidants.

    If those graphs showed olive oil as a high smoke-point oil, it's better to
    have missed them totally

    Nowadays more and more people comes to the italian cooking NG asking for
    recipes using EVO oil instead of butter. Many come because EVO oil is
    healthier, while others come to ask because they have allergies or such.
    Anyway, a good pasta frolla or brisee can not be made with EVO oil, even if
    using the best and most expensive oil from Liguria, but many other desserts
    come out well, or so they say: I almost don't cook desserts
