The omega-9 fatty acids, like those found in olive oil, always seem to get the lion’s share of credit for health benefits.
It is true that these fats are good for you and can improve your health. But they pale in comparison to the other omega fatty acids that produce the critically important eicosanoids.
However, even though it only supports the other two omegas, we still benefit from including it in our diets.
Consumption of these fats has been shown to provide the same benefits as the others in this healthy fat family.
So it's no slouch!
Good food sources of these fats are found in peanuts, hazelnuts, almonds, macadamia nuts, and of course olives.
Their pressed oils are rich sources too and are excellent for low temperature cooking. Extra virgin olive oil can also be used for medium temperature cooking.
