Testing your taste buds – EVOO vs. Corn Oil
Some people think Olive Oil is the only heart-healthy cooking oil, but a study published in 2015 in the Journal of Clinical Lipidology found that corn oil helps lower cholesterol more than extra virgin olive oil. * Corn oil has 4x more cholesterol-blocking plant sterols than olive oil, 3x as many as vegetable oil and nearly 1.5x more than canola oil. Plant sterols are plant-based micronutrients that reduce the absorption of cholesterol into the gut, blocking bad cholesterol (LDL) from entering the blood stream.
