What are Vegetable Oils?

Vegetable oils are oils that are extracted from a wide variety of vegetables, nuts and plant sources. Oils are liquid at room temperature and depending on their melting point, can be used for baking, frying, or even alone as a sauce or dressing.

Cold-pressed oils are those that are not processed using heat and are the most vitamin and mineral rich. Cold-pressed olive oil is extremely healthy. There are too many vegetable oils to list here, but some are: canola oil, olive oil, almond oil, walnut oil, peanut oil, avocado oil, coconut oil, soybean oil, corn oil, safflower oil, etc.
