So, what is frying oil?

Frying oil is a type of cooking oil that is specifically formulated for high-temperature cooking methods, such as deep-frying and pan-frying. It is typically made from vegetable oils, such as soybean or canola oil, which have a high smoke point and are able to withstand the high temperatures required for frying without breaking down. Frying oil is often fortified with antioxidants and other additives to improve its stability and prevent the formation of harmful compounds during cooking. When used correctly, frying oil can help to produce delicious and crispy fried foods, making it a staple ingredient in many kitchens around the world.
