About Deep Frying

Shallow frying is a type of pan frying using only enough fat to immerse approximately one-third to one half of each piece of food and the fat is normally used once.

Deep-frying on the other hand, involves total immersion of the food in the hot oil and the oil is normally topped up and used several times before rejection. This is a much heavier duty and special heavy duty frying oils are required for best results. Deep frying is now the basis of a very large and expanding industry world wide. Fried products have great consumer appeal in all age groups and the process is quick, can easily be made continuous for mass production and the food emerges sterile and dry, with relatively long shelf life. The end products can then be easily packaged for storage and distribution. Examples are potato crisps, French fries, nuts, doughnuts, instant noodles etc.

There is some criticism of fried food for their low nutritional value. Frying, especially deep frying, imbues the food with fat from the oil, lowering their nutrient density.
