23. Don't believe me, search "hemp oil" + frying or some such thing

 

I don't know a lot of things but I do know about hemp oil.

Maybe that label on the bottle is referring to extra virgin olive oil, which has a similar smoke point. Virgin olive oil shouldn't be used for frying either. Heating any oil past the smoke point and then eating it is not healthy. Look up "oil smoke point"


Olive Oil - Extra Virgin 320F

Grape Seed 485F or 252C
Avocado 480F or 249C
Sesame 410F or 210C
Canola 400F or 204C
Macademia 385F or 196C

Most people fry things at 350-375 degrees.

"Hempseed oil has a relatively low smoke point and is not suitable for frying."
