So, what is soy oil?

Soy oil is a versatile cooking oil derived from soybeans, a legume native to East Asia. With its neutral flavor and high smoke point, it's perfect for frying, baking, and sautéing. Soy oil is also a rich source of essential fatty acids, such as linoleic acid and omega-3 fatty acids, which have been linked to numerous health benefits. In addition, soy oil is low in saturated fat and cholesterol-free, making it a healthier alternative to many other oils. Its light color and mild taste make it an ideal choice for dishes where you want the other flavors to shine through.

How to quickly find the source of ingredients like soy oil?

We've built a database of 49359 ingredients (and growing), classified as "vegan", "non-vegan", or "maybe vegan".

We use it in our vegan ingredients scanner, which is the best way to avoid non-vegan ingredients - you take a picture of a product's ingredient list, and the app tells you if the product is vegan or not.
