Grilling with Heart

May 25, 2015 04:31AM, Published by Family Features, Categories: Family Features, Family Features Food



(Family Features) As you prepare your favorite marinades this summer, remember that not all cooking oils are created equal. But have no fear, good-for-you grilling can be as easy as using a heart-healthy oil, such as Mazola® Corn Oil.

According to a study published in the Journal of Clinical Lipidology, corn oil can significantly reduce both total and so-called “bad” LDL cholesterol more than extra virgin olive oil. In fact, Mazola Corn Oil has four times more cholesterol-blocking plant sterols than olive oil and 40 percent more than canola oil.

What's more, because of its neutral taste, corn oil won’t interfere with the natural flavors of your favorite foods and ingredients. Additionally, its high smoke point makes it perfect for a variety of cooking styles, including stir-frying, sautéing, grilling and even baking.

Heart-Healthy Tips

Celebrity chef Ingrid Hoffmann shares the following heart-healthy tips for summer grilling inspiration.

Balance with color. Adding color to your meals with fresh fruits and vegetables also adds balance; more color means more nutrition.

Prepare from scratch. When you prepare meals from scratch, you control what goes into your body. Grill for your heart with Mazola Corn Oil; it not only lowers total and LDL “bad” cholesterol more than extra virgin olive oil, but its high smoke point, versatility and neutral flavor ensure the flavors of your favorite grilling recipes shine through.

Spice it up. With a few spices and citrus, you can bump up the flavor of grilling dishes without adding fat.

Find more information about the heart health benefits of corn oil and a variety of delicious grilling recipes at www.Mazola.com.

Maki KC, Lawless AL, Kelley KM, Kaden VN, Dicklin MR. Benefits of corn oil compared to extra-virgin olive oil consumption on the plasma lipid profile in men and women with elevated cholesterol: results from a controlled feeding trial. J. Clin. Lipidol. January/February 2015 issue. Study sponsored in part by ACH Food Companies, Inc.

Based on analysis of corn oil and 2013 USDA comparison of other cooking oils: corn oil has plant sterols content of 135.6 mg/serving vs. 30.0 mg/serving for olive oil, 40.8 mg/serving for vegetable oil, and 93.9 mg/serving for canola oil.
