39) What is the concept of smoking point with respect to oil?
Smoke point is when over the heat oils and fats would start to generate visible smoke . Heating beyond this normally would develop acridity. Refined oils due to removal of solids and impurities have higher smoke points whereas cold pressed oils have lower ranges heating beyond which lowers flavor. Smoke point refers to the temperature at which it starts to burn and smoke. When you cook with oil that's been heated past its smoke point, you do more than impart a burnt flavour to foods. Beneficial nutrients and phytochemicals found in many cooking oils are destroyed when it is overheated. Overheating also creates harmful free radicals. (same as question no 8) Ghee by inherent virtue has high smoking point which renders it nicely adapted to high heat cooking and flavor development of maillard reaction.
