English term or phrase:smoking point
Dans un tableau de présentation d'un nouveau beurre de cacao utilisé comme matière grasse de cuisine, on parle de "smoking point", alors évidemment, je vois ce que c'est, mais je ne trouve pas d'équivalent français.
Merci de votre aide.
The temperature at which cooking oil will smoke when heated. When oil reaches the temperature at which it begins to smoke, a chemical breakdown occurs, resulting in the release of a gas and other byproducts. This chemical breakdown can cause the oil to have an undesirable flavor. Oils with high smoking points, such as peanut oil and corn oil, should be used for deep-fat frying because of the high temperature the oil must reach.
