I was having an argument with a co-worker about this so I was wondering on all you SP's opinion
My co-worker was telling me that his doc reckons fried fries are better for you than oven-baked fries. I asked him why the doc said this and apparently the doctor reckons that fried fries don't cause a spike in your glucose levels like the baked variety due to the oil which lines the stomach????
Now I am no doctor, nor am I a nutritionist by any form but this sounds really dodgy to me. I then mentioned that potatoes in general will cause a blood sugar spike as that is the nature of potatoes and while I agree that sometimes additives in bought packages of oven baked fries can be bad, I would generally prefer to stick to oven baking fries instead of frying them due to calorie intake, fat content etc.
He then became absolutely adamant that oven baking them was the worst way to eat a fry so I eventually dropped my argument.
I can't find any info in the internet but what do you all think? Oven baking fries worse than deep fried fries?
