Emily Birch, an Australian nutrition expert, announced that some vegetable oils are rich in monounsaturated fats and antioxidants, and are considered a suitable alternative to olive oil thanks to their delicious taste.

The expert points out that adding olive oil to the diet can reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes, improve heart health, and reduce the risk of inflammation in the body thanks to its antioxidant activity. This is due to its high content of monounsaturated fatty acids and polyphenols (healthy plant compounds).

Some researchers believe that to get the maximum benefit from olive oil, it is enough to eat about 20 grams of it (5 teaspoons) per day. But in some cases it may not be economically feasible to buy olive oil.

According to Birch, other oils (canola, sunflower, and sesame) are also rich in antioxidants and healthy monounsaturated fats. In addition, it tastes nice and is affordable. Noting that sunflower oil is better for frying, and sesame oil is better for preparing sauces and Asian dishes.

The results of some studies have shown that using sunflower oil can prevent heart disease by reducing the level of harmful cholesterol in the blood. Canola oil also contains a low percentage of saturated fats, which raise the level of harmful cholesterol.
