Healthy alternatives on the grill

Whether it's zucchini or mushrooms coated in olive oil, grilled corn on the cob or a vegetable skewer of onions, peppers, tomatoes and mushrooms – you're all set.

We have put together some other healthy barbecue tips for you:

  • Not every oil is suitable for barbecuing. Although wheat germ or sunflower oils are rich in valuable, unsaturated fats, they oxidise into unhealthy saturated compounds at high temperatures. You should therefore use olive oil or peanut oil for grilling, as these oils can withstand high temperatures.
  • If you don't want to go without meat, avoid salted or marinated meat and use lean meats such as poultry.
  • Place the food on the grill in an aluminium tray or foil. This way, most of the liquid collects in the tray and doesn't drip onto the embers.
  • Cut off burnt areas generously before consumption.

Bon appetit!
