Seems we have started to stray from the topic at hand. How about we get back to discussing the toxicity of olive oil please.

I think the point is that if you respect the smoking points you will be fine. If you need to cook with very high heat, there are plenty of more appropriate oils to choose from.

I've used olive oil for cooking for many year, but I've never noticed that it's smells weird when it's too hot. Thank you useful post!

Nice.

Linoleic acid breaks down into a toxic chemical at high heat.

Folks, deep fry your food in peanut oil (one of the highest smoke points out there) and (as if you needed more reasons) stay the hell away from fast food....

What about Olive Oil

Scotch, all the information you present is valid, IF we were talking about Vegetable Oil. All of us are curious about the daily uses of Olive Oil. My research has turned up nothing besides the obvious of not using to excess or overheating.

Please let me know if I missed anything.

Hi dadouger, welcome to DC.

You missed the fact that olives are vegetables and olive oil is a vegetable oil.

This topic came up a while back. There was a fairly productive discussion in this thread.

There is conflicting information out there about this topic. From a pure scientific standpoint it may be possible to make olive oil toxic but on the other hand repeating the same results in the kitchen by accident is unlikely.

Here is a good general reference on olive oil. The Olive Oil Source | Everything but the Olive
