Soybean Oil:

Soybean oil is a popular vegetable oil that is valued for its affordability, high smoke point and health benefits. Soybean oil is extracted from the soybean. It often has a dark yellow or faint green colour. Standard vegetable oil is often composed of soybean oil. Soybean oil accounts for 80% of all commercial oil used in the United States. This is a good all around oil that can be used for baking, cooking and frying.

The oil is made by extracting oils from the soybean. This is done by cracking the beans and then heating the beans to remove any unnecessary moisture. Next, the beans are sliced and then rolled to extract the oil. Often, commercial brands mix soybean oil with other cheaper oils to make it more affordable. You can also find unrefined soybean oil, which is cold-pressed and expeller-pressed. Often unrefined oils have a stronger flavour, but usually retain a higher nutritional value than refined oils. 

Soybean oil contains no cholesterol, which makes it a perfect choice for individuals with heart disease or high cholesterol. The fats in soybean oil are polyunsaturated which have shown to help reduce total cholesterol, lower LDL or bad cholesterol levels and increase HDL or good cholesterol levels.

Soybean oil has omega-3 fatty acids, which have shown to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, slow the growth of atherosclerotic plaque, slow the risk of arrhythmias or abnormal heartbeats and decrease triglyceride levels. Soybeans naturally contain antioxidants, which remain in the oil even after it is pressed. These antioxidants help prevent the damage caused by free radicals, which may help prevent certain cancers. ...back
