SAVING COSTS, IMPROVING OIL LIFE AND INCREASING EFFICIENCY
Food quality and operating efficiency is improved by cooking in regularly filtered oil. Long oil life can be achieved by frequently filtering the fat and oil inside the deep fryer. This allows the oil to work at greater efficiency for a longer time. This improvement can be associated with increased efficiency; including power cost savings and a longer fry life for the fat or oil.
Several factors that shorten the fry life of the oil include the presence of water, emulsifiers, seasoning, light and detergent.
VARIOUS TYPES OF FATS AND OILS
Different types of oil or fat used to fry foods affect the overall nutritional quality of the finished product. Many of the various types of fats and oils available on the market are not suitable for cooking over long periods of time at high temperatures, as happens in deep-frying.
1) Tallow-based (Beef) Fats - The most commonly used fat due to its cheaper cost and relatively longer fry life. This oil is not recommended due to it’s association with increased heart disease risk.
2) Liquid Vegetable Oils - Whilst most vegetable oils are recommended for cooking, many of them are not suitable for deep-frying. Higher temperatures break down the oil faster and by-products often have an off-flavour and that may also increase heart disease risk.
3) Hardened/Creamed Vegetable Oils - These products may have a longer fry life than their liquid oil equivalents, but the hardening process increase heart disease due to the components added.
