    Refined oils such as vegetable, canola, corn, grapeseed, safflower and sunflower are all designated as high heat oils, meaning they can withstand approximately 450F.

    But basically, deep-frying is NOT healthy.

    Rapeseed. (canola in the USA I believe). About as high in unsaturates and polyunsaturates as olive oil but has a much higher smoke point. Olive oil breaks down under high heat and the level of saturates increases.

    Olive oil has a relatively lower smoke point compared to other oils, so it's best for low and medium-heat cooking. It's also one of the healthiest oils to use when baking.
