Healthy Food Database
Refers to any oil made from a vegetable source such as plants, nuts or seeds. Includes varieties such as almond oil, rapeseed oil, olive oil, corn oil and many more. Mainly found in supermarkets or sold in bulk for commercial application; a cheaper grade blended oil with fewer health benefits than cold pressed extracted oils.
Note: Although generally low in salicylates/amines, some varieties of vegetable oil have preservatives that may mimic adverse reactions, so are best avoided by those with sensitivities.
Usually sold in a blend of oils simply labelled as vegetable oil for convenience. Best to invest in a higher quality oil, for example, extra virgin olive or low flavour grapeseed oil.
Note: Different blends of vegetable oils may have varying salicylate or amine levels.
Store in a pantry or fridge.
Tips & Tricks:
If using vegetable oil for deep frying, never reuse it. Reheating oils causes them to go rancid, creating free radicals.
