The use of air fryer: healthy or not?
The crunchiness and texture of deep fried food is hard to achieve using other baking methods. Although loved by so many (who can resist crunchy French fries) deep fried food is not considered healthy. Why?
1- When food is cooked in oil at extremely high temperatures, it is likely to contain trans fat which is associated with an increased risk of heart disease and other health problems.
2- Deep frying produces a compound called acrylamide which is linked to some types of cancers.
