Hi,Maria,thanks for query.You have asked the most debated and difficult question.Nothing is best and ideal.The ratio of omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids is important oil that you consume.None of the oil have this in ideal limit.The best option would to be change your oil every 3 months and in rotation.Mustard oil,ground oil,oilve oil and other oils to be used in rotation,The bottom line is eat less oil and stay healthy.
wishing you good health.
