What is Soya Oil?
The hype of soya products has left many people asking “what is soya oil exactly?” Soya oil is the most widely used source of edible oil in many countries and has many health benefits. Its plant based origin makes it a highly sustainable and accessible source of vegetable oil. It is often dark yellow or even light green in colour, much the same as other vegetable oils. Soya oil is commonly used in mayonnaise, salad dressing, margarine and non-dairy creamers. Soya is a popular meat alternative, and soybean oil is commonly used in the creation of tofu, soy milk, soy sauce and other meat and dairy alternatives. It can even be used as an alternative to olive oil for dressing salads. Choosing the right type of soybean oil is important, and organic or cold-pressed options are often the best and most preferred.
