Olive oil is healthiest, but only when stored correctly. It should be kept in the fridge. If it is kept at room temperature the 'healthy' aspects break down and it can become rancid.

I do not store olive oil in the fridge as this can cause it to take on a cloudy appearance. I know it will clear, but I don't like the cloudiness. I keep it in a walk-in pantry in my kitchen, which when the door is closed is cool and dark and it keeps for a very long time. I always buy EVOO when I'm visiting Greece, Portugal, Italy or France and I often have 5 or 6 different olive oils on the go at one time.

There is little chance of oils going rancid in the UK, it rarely gets warm enough...

Oh, and coconut oil is terrible for you. Great for making cakes, but bad for your heart.

Yes, coconut oil, though it has a nice odor and taste, is definitely bad for you!!
Classify this one as heart attack oil.

Try THIS one!

Smart Balance Omega. It has a natural blend of canola, soy and olive oils, is very healthy for you and has 0 carbs. And it helps support healthy cholesterol and is good for your heart!

I bought some yesterday. It's a good healthy versatile all-around oil that can be used for salad dressings, cooking light, sauteing and stir-frying.

For more info, visit http://www.smartbalance.com.
