Nutrition-focused TV news segment puts healthy Malaysian palm fruit oil in the “eat this” column

Chicagoans wondering what foods can make meals healthier (and what foods don’t) learned from WGN 9 News’ recent interview with holistic pharmacist Sherry Torkos. Starting with a healthy salad, Torkos suggested including avocado and sunflower seeds, but avoiding bacon bits and creamy dressings. While olive oil is a healthy salad dressing ingredient, Torkos cautioned viewers not to cook with olive oil. Heat cancels out its health benefits. Instead, she recommended cooking with Malaysian palm fruit oil. Semi-solid at room temperature, heat stable Malaysian palm fruit oil is ideal for grilling, frying and even sautéing. Torkos added that red palm fruit oil is also rich in beta carotene and tocotrienols, which may promote brain health.
