Why grilling meat is healthier for you than frying

We’re now more educated about the food that we consume and the associated health benefits. The way we cook our food directly impacts its taste, texture and how healthy it is for us.

Grilling and frying are the two most popular cooking methods to cook food globally. We all have our preferred cooking methods for whatever we’re cooking; whether it be thick cuts of meat, chicken, seafood – you name it!

Unlike frying, by grilling food, minimal added fats or oils are required for the cooking process. With frying, the way meat is cooked is through the high conductivity and temperatures, whereas on the other end with grilling, meat is placed under direct heat, using thermal radiation to cook your food.


How is it healthier?

With the increased prevalence of high cholesterol and type-2 diabetes plaguing young children and adults across Australia, the way that we cook our food will have to change to keep up with our health needs.

By reducing the amount of added fats to our diets, we can limit the unnecessary fats to our food and enjoy healthier lives.
