Ingredients: potato powder, potato starch, modified food starch, vegetable oil. Is it healthy?

REALLY UNHEALTHY!!!: This is recipe for disaster. Potatoes are in the environmental working group's dirty dozen foods-they're high in pesticides if not organic & are readily converted to sugar so raise blood sugar, causing weight gain & increased risk of diabetes. Generic "vegetable oil" is almost certainly corn, soy or canola which are all gmo if not organic & very toxic, fried potatoes have carcinogenic acrylamides.

I usually used chicken oil in frying. Which would you prefer in cooking, the chicken fats or the vegetable oil?

Vegetable: Always vegetable oil. There is no reason to ever use animal fats for cooking. If you like the taste, change your taste. Even with veg oil, you should use it very sparingly and frugally.

Are potato chips and french fries still considered vegetables? Are they bad for you even if they are cooked in "vegetable" oil?

Are potato chips and french fries still considered vegetables? Are they bad for you even if they are cooked in "vegetable" oil?

Sort of, REALLY BAD: Technically french fries/chips are vegetables but are also junk food. When people are advised to eat veggies these aren't what's meant & don't count as credit towards servings. French fries/chips are very fattening, usually contain hazardous trans fats & have high levels of carcinogenic acrylamides. Baked potatoes have acrylamides too but less fat. See http://www.

Does vegetable oil aid constipation, if yes; how long does it take to work?

Does vegetable oil aid constipation, if yes; how long does it take to work?

Veg oil: Veg oil can lessen constipation a bit but other factors can prevail. Fiber is essential. The ingested oil will be absorbed but IF you consume lots of fiber, then fiber can adsorb some the oil and pass. Consume oatmeal, apple, pear, apricot, prune, bran, lots of liquid, and veg oil will have impact. Dried prune or apricot can be easy. High fiber oatmeal is easy.

Lubrication: Choice of lubrication depends on the preferences of both partners -- but vegetable oils should be okay if you react to ones like astroglide, etc. Some find coconut oil helpful, depending on your response.
