Oil can get confusing, especially as each manufacturer claims their brand is healthier than others. However, if you still use lard, shortening, butter, or margarine to cook your meals, then it’s time to make a change.
To reduce your LDL, use sunflower, olive, or canola oil instead. Liquid oils are far more beneficial for your cholesterol than butter and lard – while not altering the flavor dramatically. Or, in baking when some oils aren’t appropriate, you can use ghee or coconut oil.
