Does Using an Airfryer Increase the Caloric Value of Food?

Airfryer is a cooking tool that many people like to use nowadays. Will using an air fryer increase the calorie content of the food?

Calorie Content of Food Cooked in an Air Fryer

An airfryer is just a heating cooking tool, and using an air fryer to make food will not result in an increase in calorie content. Moreover, the calorie content can be controlled properly because an air fryer does not require oil for roasting or frying food. It can even roast the oil contained in the food itself, which will not affect the taste of the food and can even reduce the calorie content appropriately.

Gaabor's GA-E5A air fryer has a 360-degree all-round hot air circulation that heats evenly, computer control that precisely controls temperature and time, a large capacity of 5L for cooking a meal, low-fat, smoke-free, oil-free and easy to cook, and 8 functional menu options for multiple meals a day.

Can Food Cooked in an Air Fryer Be Eaten Regularly?

Compared with ordinary deep-frying, the food cooked in an air fryer does have a lower fat content, but its heating temperature exceeds 120 degrees Celsius, mostly between 180-200 degrees Celsius, which can produce suspected carcinogens such as acrylamide. Carbohydrates and proteins inevitably generate acrylamide under high-temperature conditions. Although an airfryer does not contain oil in the processing, the food ingredients themselves contain nutrients such as carbohydrates and proteins.

An air fryer can be used without oil, and even oil can come out when cooking meat. This is because some meats themselves have a high fat content, such as chicken thighs and wings with skin, and their own fats will seep out during the cooking process. The airfryer claims to be "oil-free" or even "low-oil", but except for fatty meats such as pork belly, chicken wings, lamb, and squid, oil needs to be added for other meats.

Overall, using an airfryer to fry food is healthier than using the ordinary method.
