Why You Should Use Pecan OilSearch for an alternative to using olive oil or butter with your cooking? Well look no further than our all natural pecan oil! Pecan oil is one of the best cooking oil alternatives that promotes healthier eating. With the subtle nutty flavor of pecan oil, you can easily cook up all of your meals without disrupting the balance of your food. However, that isn’t the only reason why you should be grabbing the pecan oil for every cooking experience. Here are four reasons why pecan oil is the superior cooking oil: 1. Light Neutral Flavor Unlike olive oil which has a distinct taste, pecan has little to no taste that won’t be able to mask the natural flavor of your food. Meals with delicate flavors such as fish or cakes will maintain their natural taste as they should. 2. Low Saturated Fat Pecan oil has 1/3 less saturated fat than olive oil and 2/3 less than butter making it the healthier cooking oil option. Not to mention that pecan oil will have an abundance of good fats that is great for your health and less of the harmful fats that can end up clogging your arteries. 3. High Smoke Point With a smoking point of 470 degrees, pecan oil is one of the most durable and resilient oils you can purchase. This makes it perfect for when you are making a delicious salmon, halibut or sword fish dinner at home. In fact, many chefs prefer to use pecan oil in order to perfectly sear their expensive fish dishes. 4. Long Shelf Life Pecan oil has a wonderfully long shelf life. When you place it in the refrigerator or freezer, you will not have to worry about things going bad or rancid. Even if you stick it in the cabinet instead, pecan oil can last up to around 6 months.
