Dr. Maya Roseman: Do you like schnitzel and chips? This is how you will eat and save calories

Clinging in the air: To this day, some of us have become acquainted with the latest air-based fryer, whose name is better known in English: “Air-Fryer” (“fryer in the air”). The device, which is a kind of hybrid production between an oven and a French fries machine, requires very little oil (or not at all) to bring foods we like to a degree of crispiness reminiscent of fried foods. What are its health benefits, and how is it different from an oven? 103FM’s expert dietitian, Dr. Maya Roseman, She explained to a curious listener.

“There’s a recent method called oil-free frying, it has all kinds of devices, in the ‘air-fryer’ style,” Roseman first explained. She explained what the idea behind the relatively new device is: “The idea is to add a minimal amount of oil, if any, and then hot air revolves around vegetables or schnitzel or chips, or whatever you put inside, and it gives a crispy texture that is almost like frying. It Not exactly like frying, but it’s also more crispy and fun to eat compared to baking, and certainly compared to cooking. “

So what are the benefits of that appliance and its unique cooking method? The dietitian explained: “We are at a much lower temperature than in frying, so even the oil you add does not reach a state of burning and spoilage. In frying the oil can reach a temperature of, say, 240 degrees, and start to burn, and here it does not happen. “At 180 degrees, 160 degrees sometimes, it depends on what its name is, and then it maintains the quality of the oil.”

“The second advantage is that we actually use a low amount of oil,” Roseman added. “It allows more control over calories. Fried schnitzel can reach 800 calories, and baked schnitzel 150 calories, which is a significant difference. In addition, it has all the benefits of frying which is relatively short exposure time to heat, which preserves the vitamins, the benefits in comparison “For the cooking that the minerals usually go through in the cooking water, so here it is not because they remain in the food.”

In conclusion, the dietitian said: “This is a recommended and fun cooking method, and for almost any product.” She added some of her personal experiences: “I think the downside is that later, at least in my home appliance, which I do not use, because I do not have the strength to clean these three large parts afterwards, that is the only reason.”
