Hmmmm.. generally you may be right but I did watch Astro food channel and one US restaurant have french fries fried in olive oil.. so I see.Originally Posted by zinglicious
Ok..you and many others who form a small minority who may use alternative oil but fact is majority of Malaysians are buying the usual brands on the shelf which most are palm oil based. Anway, its quality is better than those used by economy and mid priced restaurants which many are eating outside. Actually Malaysia should have a very strict control over the supply and distribution of these items. I could say many would be ignorant about the actual quality of those packet cooking oils except for its among the cheapest. Everyone knows the cheapest ingredients used in restaurants are a contributing factor to more Malaysians suffering from health problems later on. Having said that, our gahmen is blardi toothless (cakap lebih saja tahu!) when it comes to all this till something unfortunate happens...like students ending up in hospital downed by food poisoning.
