So, what is vegetable oil and fats?

Vegetable oils and fats are an essential ingredient used in cooking and baking. They are extracted from a variety of plant sources, including sunflower, soybean, canola, and palm. These oils and fats are rich in monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids, which are beneficial to our health. They are also a good source of Vitamin E and other antioxidants. Vegetable oils and fats have a neutral flavor and high smoke point, making them ideal for frying and high-heat cooking. They can also be used in salad dressings, marinades, and as a substitute for butter or margarine in baking recipes.
