So, what is soya oil?

Soya oil, also known as soybean oil, is a versatile and widely-used ingredient in the food industry. Extracted from soybeans, this light-colored oil has a neutral flavor and a high smoke point, making it perfect for use in a variety of cooking methods, including frying, baking, and sautéing. In addition to its culinary uses, soya oil is also rich in polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fatty acids, which have been linked to numerous health benefits, such as reducing inflammation, improving heart health, and supporting brain function. Whether you're a home cook or a professional chef, soya oil is a pantry staple that can add flavor and nutrition to any dish.
