Thing you should know about cooking oils/fats
When fats or oils are exposed to a certain amount of heat, they break down chemically and nutritionally. Each type of oil has a different “smoke point”: the temperature at which this breakdown occurs. Generally, highly refined oils and oils with high saturated fat content have higher smoke points, making them better suited to high-temperature cooking such as deep frying.
That’s precisely why deep-fried foods are unhealthy.
When the temperature of an oil approaches or passes its smoke points it produces bluish, acrid smoke that’s irritating and harmful when inhaled. It also produces free radicals that are harmful.
Here are some guidelines for cooking:
- Don’t reuse cooking oil: its smoke point has already been lowered by prior heating.
- Stay below the smoke point :even ‘good’ oils (MUFAs and PUFAs) become harmful when over-heated.
- Match your oils with your method of cooking: for example, extra virgin olive oil is best for salads and sautéing; for deep-browning or frying, avocado or soybean oil is better.
These examples should help. Smoke points are not precise and depend on degree of refinement of the oil but they do give approximate ranges:
1). Delicious, exotic and easy to make!
Your new cooking skill will be in demand with friends and family. (It will be our secret, you don't need to tell anyone how easy it is to make)
2). Vegetarian alternatives for nearly every dish!
3). Distinct from Chinese or Indian cuisine -- truly something unique and original! In Thai culture, there is a long and rich tradition for food preparation and cooking techniques. Genuine Thai food is Asian in style but truly something unique and original!
4). Thai cuisine is one of the healthiest foods you can eat. In fact, several Thai dishes, such as Tom Yum Soup, are currently under scientific study for their incredible health benefits.
5). Naturally (more) gluten-free. A lot of Thai dishes are gluten-free or minimum gluten. Depend with the recipes.
6). It has been known that many of the fresh herbs and spices used in Thai cooking - such as turmeric, galangal, coriander, lemongrass, and fresh chillies - have immune-boosting and disease-fighting power.
7). Thai food uses coconut milk, In recent years, coconut milk has been shown to be extremely healthy.
Yes, coconut milk and oil do contain fat - but this is good, not bad fat. Coconut milk:
• Lowers bad cholesterol (LDL), while promoting good cholesterol

• Provides valuable fatty acids which most people in the West are lacking
• Fights aging!
8). Chilies(fresh or dried, whole, minced or powdered)
Recent studies show that eating chilies helps you sleep better, keeps your heart healthy, and helps maintain consistent insulin and glucose levels. Of all the chilies studied thus far, it seems cayenne pepper is one of the most powerful in terms of health benefits. Also, it's one of the few chilies used here in North America (available in flakes or powder in most grocery stores).
9). Curry, Thai food has many difference kind of curries. So you can enjoy a lot of difference flavor. while consuming curry at lease 2-3 times/week, study showed that it can help increase immunize system in your body (if you make a research, you will find a lot of health benefit of curry out there).
10). Less processing, To cook Thaifood generally you need to use fresh ingredients and spices and rice.
