>>I bought a can of olive oil spray -- the can is the pressurized
type, and the last ingredient is "propellant." What exactly
is this, and is it safe to ingest? I want to use this to spray on
Hmmmmmm. Good question, Anne. I used a commercial olive oil spray (in a
can) once to spray on a salad... my sister-in-law, who is a registered
nurse (as am I) was mortified that I would do that. She said that the
propellants (or something else) in the spray included PROPANE. I have not
been able to confirm this, but I have since acquired one of those spray
pumps that you can fill yourself, and pump up with air pressure so that the
oil sprays out in a very fine aerosol. Now I use that for spraying things
that will not be cooked.
Now I tend to use some oil out of a bottle, onto a paper towel and rub it
on pots and pans, etc., instead of spray.
All the best.
