I love French fries, they taste great. Children, Adults, and Elderly loves fried foods, don’t you?
But, the problem with fried foods, they are not healthy.
there is no secret, to produce tasty fried foods, it will need a good amount of oil in the process.
Why are fried foods not healthy?
Livestrong.com summarized from various medical studies and News reports, in their post; fried foods are high in fat and calorie; hence, it increased the risks of medical problems like obesity, stroke, diabetes and cancer.
no wonder, a phrase comes to existence: “there is no healthy fried food.” well, if it were 50 years ago, I would agree with that phrase. but, we live at the now and I can say there Is,
the answer is the Air Fryer.
What is an Air Fryer?
Instead of using oil as the main medium for the frying process, it uses Air instead ( that’s why it is called Air Fryer )

to make it even better for health, u should use the olive oil (known as liquid gold), as a recent study by British Medical
Journal “Consumption of fried foods and risk of coronary heart disease: Spanish cohort of the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition study.”
“In Spain, a Mediterranean country where olive or sunflower oil is used for frying, the consumption of fried foods was not associated with coronary heart disease or with all cause mortality.”
That study last for 11 years.
We can say that using olive oil or Sunflower Oil in the process of frying food will decrease the cardiovascular event compare to using your ordinary oil.
