I was reading an article on algae oil in one of my training magazines.
When I think of algae, a green gooey slime is what comes to mind. I’ve done a lot of swimming growing up in Florida and the unexpected feeling of seaweed brisking across your leg is not a pleasant experience!
Regardless, when learning about the health benefits of algae oil I was quite surprised!
I never realized the calorie and fat levels of olive oil until I started cooking and being more conscious of food labels.
I try to cut back on calories and fat without sacrificing too much flavor.
What I learned about algae oil, is that it has a very high smoke point. This is beneficial for all types of cooking, making it extremely ideal to keep on hand. Using algae oil will allow you to sauté, roast, stir fry or sear your food.
Don’t worry about the taste either! Algae oil has a very subtle and natural flavor. You won’t have too worry about hints of algae or green gooeyness flavoring all of your food.
