How Lean Fish Is Fried Makes A Difference In Nutrient Intake

February 16, 2010: 10:22 AM EST
Pan frying lean fish like cod with sunflower oil may be more beneficial than using olive oil because it leads to a higher consumption of healthy omega-3 fatty acids, according to new research. Scientists in Spain pan-fried cod and salmon, a fatty fish, using olive oil and sunflower oil. Frying both types of fish in olive oil boosted the fat absorption rate more than frying in sunflower oil. The fat content of the cod increased significantly with both oils, but the salmon was hardly affected by pan-frying. Lastly, no matter what oil was used, the dietary supply of omega-3 in salmon was much higher.
