This can lead to being overweight. You can easily calculate how many calories are added to the products after they frying. Soak one hundred grams of fried items in two grams of fat. Add nine calories per gram of absorbed fat.
For example, a potato weighing two hundred grams and hundred and forty calories becomes a more caloric product by an additional thirty-six calories from the soaked in four grams of fat.
It is important that with frying, most products lose their nutrients. A high temperature also destroys the vitamins in them.
Frying in trans fats - hydrogenated vegetable fat - is cheaper, but the consumption of these oil products increases the risk of a heart attack.

Acrylamide is formed in a chemical reaction of sugars and the amino acid asparagine, which occurs when heating food above 180 degrees.
In the heat of roasting, acrylamides also form, but they are many times less than frying.
People who love fried food, can not easily be separated their beloved taste sensations. They can replace them with grilled food. It also forms a tasty crust, but has no added fat.
