Edible Oils

Edible or cooking oil is a plant fat that is liquid at room temperature and can be used in cooking. When used to describe a cooking oil, the term “vegetable oil” refers to a mixture of oils, usually based on palm, corn, soybean, or sunflower oils.

Triacylglycerides, which are made up of various fatty acids, make up around 96 percent of edible oils. Free fatty acids, phospholipids, phytosterols, tocopherols, various antioxidants, and waxes are among the additional chemicals or sets of compounds identified.
