How Much Worse Is Cooked Vegetable Oil Than Uncooked?

Tucker D. Goodrich, Dr. James DiNicolantonio, Professor Martin Grootveld

1. Question:

The original model for MacDonald's restaurants was cooking beef burgers, then using the resultant tallow/ beef fat to make the French fries. Was that healthier?


Dr. James DiNicolantonio:

Cooking fries in beef fat would certainly form less peroxidation products compared to cooking in omega-6 seed oils. If I had to personally choose, I would choose cooking in tallow vs. corn oil.
