Tell us, how much oil Thais consume, by your calculation?

 

I just gave the figure for palm oil. You have to also include coconut oil and soybean oil! :stirthepo

They may not consume a lot of oil " per se " but they certainly like their fried insects... :neener: ....never tried them myself and never will :nono: ....kao pat probably uses a lot of oil also.Not surprising they dont use a lot as its got a high calorific value - not really what you want in a hot climate.

Can you not read?

 

What a hero and visionary you are! 35 years of experience! To come to collosal and historical conclusion like:

 

7 Litres = 1400 or 3.835 TSP / day which is 767% higher. Why do you keep posting Crap? It may wash with an Isaan wife or the Japanese but you can't fool me, I have only been involved in Measurement and Control for near on 35 years.

 

Look how teaspoons (not even 4 of them) become 767% higher of anything.

 

A bit of sense od reality and 1 day visit to Thailand would tell that bulk of that oil is never actually eaten - it's in the deep fry basins.

A visit to Thailand would teach you that the fish is "Thai tuna". Isaan, landlocked, don't have it. It comes from Samutsakhorn, between Bangkok and Hua Hin.

 

Then goes around the country. Not Isaan specific.

There are no decent Thai restaurants in Huntspatch.

 

You can't get larb moo here. At all.

 

I was in Austin TX a few weeks ago. There are a few. I hit one place I know about. Decent tom yum gung, good larb moo, very good Thai iced tea.

 

It is probably the only fix I will get before I land at Swampy in November.
