When we use old, left over cooking oil for making foodstuff, it is found to have foul odour called rancidity.
⇒Rancidity is an oxidation reaction.
⇒If food is cooked in such oil, its taste also changes.
⇒When oils or fats are left aside for a long time, they undergo air oxidation and become rancid.
⇒Rancidity in the food stuff cooked in oil or ghee is prevented by using antioxidants.
