CORN OIL COMING INTO GEN
Replacing Olive Oil for Salad Pur-
poses. Better Than Animal Fats
By Edwin F. Bowes, M. D. Author of
“Alcohol, Its Influence on Mind and
Body.” and “Bathing for Health.”
Ever since the Indians passed the
information along to our old Puritan
fathers and their equally puritanical
wives we, in America, have acknowl-
edged that corn is a wonderfully nu-
tritous and sustaining food.
It is only within recent years, how-
ever, that we have come to realize
that the oil in the germ of the corn,
hitherto regarded as a by-product, is
one of the most valuable of all the in-
gredients of the corn.
For recent experiments have prov-
ed that corn oil, pound for pound, is
one of the most readily converted and
assimilated of all fats, and that it has
very high nutritive qualities by rea-
son of this fact.
Corn oil is a true “made-in-Ameri-
ca” product, inasmuch as its use has
been confined largely to America—
although it is quite conceivable that,
before many years, there will be a
very great demand created for it
abroad—especially in the British
Isles, in all the northern countries of
Europe, and, perhaps, even in the ol-
ive-growing countries themselves.
BETTER THAN OLIVE OIL.
Corn oil has unique qualities, which
give it a great advantage over olive
oil in many respects. For one thing,
its method of preparation preserves it
from rancidity to which olive oil is so
liable, for fermentation processes
have been overcome in the prepara-
tion of corn oil.
Olive oil, as is generally known, is
merely the oil pressed from ripe ol-
fining or sterilization. So there is
nothing, once the oil has been expos-
ed to the air—or even before, for that
matter—to prevent the action of bac-
teria responsible for the development
With corn oil, on the contrary, great
care is taken to insure thorough ster-
lization. The crude, yellow oil, ex-
pressed from the corn germs, is puri-
fied by filtration and steaming. Then
the water, protein substances, and
glycerine elements, are removed. In
the oil thus sterilized, any germs that
may have dropped around, are killed.
Further, the oil is deodorized, and the
ferments which later on might cause
rancidity, are completely destroyed.
The result is a limpid, clear, light
yellow colored oil—odorless, and with
a peculiar and agreeable sweet flavor
that satisfies a natural taste. For,
unlike the taste for olives or olive oil,
the liking for corn oil does not have
to be acquired. It comes right along,
and makes itself “to home”—with
American palates, anyhow.
In mixing salad dressing it has been
found that corn oil is equal to the best
olive oil, and very much better than
ordinary olive oil—and at a cost not
to exceed one-half the cost of the
highest grade of imported olive oil.
Indeed, many discriminating South-
Europeans, including Italians, now
prefer the sweet blend oil to olive oil.
Corn oil blends perfectly with the
various ingredients used in “building”
a French or a mayonnaise dressing—
making a perfectly smooth and home-
One interesting fact ip connection
with this use of corn oil is that corn
oil does not congeal as readily as does
olive oil. It remains fluid down to a
temperature of fourteen degrees;
whereas olive oil becomes cloudy and
solidifies at a temperature of thirty-
two degrees. This makes a very great
difference, for crisp coldness is one of
the first requisites of a salad.
But an even more desirable proper-
ty in corn oil is its correspondingly
higher burning point. While butter
burns at about two hundred and fifty
degrees, goose grease at four hundred
degrees, lard at four hundred and
twenty-five degrees, cottonseed oil at
five hundred and thirty-five degrees,
and olive oil at six hundred. coin oil
does not burn until it is heated up to
Sisdmndied and fifty degrees Fahren-
It is the low burning point of but-
ter, lard, and other fats and oils, that
fills the house with smoke and stench,
and gives all the neighbors wireless
information as to what the family is
to have for dinner.
KEEPS THE FOOD-JUICES SEALED IN.
The great advantage of a higher
burning point in frying steak, fish,
onions, and other odoriferous foods, is
that the higher temperature, used
with corn oil, makes it possible to
cook the food in a shorter space of
time, and thereby prevents the tough-
ening of the meat, the drying out of
the fish, and the diffusion of the per-
fumes not of Araby from other com-
Also, the use of corn oil at its un-
usually high temperature “seals in”
immediately the surface juices of the
food, retaining thereby the flavor,
aroma, and succulence which would
otherwise be lost, or else disseminated
all over the neighborhood. The food
is cooked in its own juice, instead of
being saturated with burnt grease
that would give the food a flavor and
odor anything but desirable.
This makes it possible to fry dough-
nuts, fish, onions, or any food product
in one pan, and at one time—if it
were necessary—without any one pro-
duct taking up the odors or flavors of
any of the other products.
This is carrying American efficien-
cy into the kitchen, with a vengeance
—right into the heart of the frying
pan. All of which makes for the con-
servation of life and health—also for
the increase of happiness and the sat-
isfaction of being alive.
