So, what is refined vegetable oil?

Refined vegetable oil is a type of oil that has been extracted from various plants and then processed to remove impurities and other undesirable substances. This oil is often used in cooking and baking, as it has a neutral taste and high smoke point, making it suitable for high-temperature cooking methods. Refined vegetable oil is also commonly used in the production of processed foods, such as crackers, cookies, and snack foods. While refined vegetable oil is often seen as a healthier alternative to animal fats, some studies suggest that excessive consumption of these oils may be linked to negative health effects, so it's important to use them in moderation.
