Benefits of Soya Oil
What is Soybean Oill
Soybean oil is extracted from the soybean (Glycine max) and often has a dark yellow or faint green color. Standard vegetable oil is typically composed of soybean oil. The first domestic use of soybean is traced to the eastern half of North China in 11th BC, or perhaps a little earlier. Soybean is one of the five main plant foods of China, along with rice, wheat, barley, and millet. Early accounts have it that soybean production was localized in China until after the China-Japan War of 1894 to 1895, when the Japanese started to import soybean oil cake as fertilizer.
Soybean oil is processed and sold mainly as a vegetable oil, while the remaining soybean meal is typically used as animal feed. It is also the primary source of biodiesel in the country, making up 80 percent of domestic production. Lecithin is a product extracted from soybean oil, and it is a natural emulsifier and lubricant used in many foods and commercial and industrial applications. It helps keep the chocolate and cocoa butter in a candy bar from separating, and is used in pharmaceutical products and protective coatings.
Benefits of Peanut Oil
Benefits in cooking with Peanut Oil
– Very high burn point (232 degrees, Celsius), so it lasts longer and is more stable when cooked with under high temperatures
– High in monounsaturated fats that help reduce bad LDL High in vitamins A, D and E
– As healthy as olive oil which is regarded as healthiest oil.
– Naturally so good it can be consumed as virgin oil in raw form Triple refined,
– Odourless and durable
– No artificial additives added Cost-effective
Perhaps the most interesting thing about the peanut is that it isn’t a nut at all. It’s actually a legume, in the same family as lentils, peas and beans. They are also known as groundnuts because after the pea-like flowers wither, the stem pushes underground and buries the developing peanuts. These super pint-sized nuts are a very good source of monounsaturated fats, the type of fat that is emphasized in the heart-healthy Mediterranean diet. Studies of diets with a special emphasis on these nuts have shown that this little legume is a big ally for a healthy heart. In addition to their monounsaturated fat content, they feature an array of other nutrients that, in numerous studies, have been shown to promote heart health. They’re also good sources of vitamin-E, niacin, folate, protein and manganese. Not only do peanuts contain oleic acid, the healthful fat found in olive oil, but new research shows these tasty legumes are also as rich in antioxidants as many fruits. While unable to boast an antioxidant content that can compare with the fruits highest in antioxidants, such as pomegranate, the roasted variety do rival the antioxidant content of blackberries and strawberries, and are far richer in antioxidants than apples, carrots or beets.
Orally, peanut oil is used to lower cholesterol and prevent heart disease. It is also used orally to aid in weight loss and decrease appetite, and to help prevent cancer. Topically, peanut oil is used for arthritis and joint pain, scalp crusting and scaling without hair loss, dry skin, eczema, and ichthyosis (non-inflammatory skin disorders that cause scaling). Rectally, peanut oil is used in ointments and medicinal oils for treating constipation. It is also used as a vehicle for external, enteral, and parenteral pharmaceutical formulations. Eating peanuts just two or more times each week was associated with a 58% lowered risk of colon cancer in women and a 27% lowered risk in men. In manufacturing, peanut oil is used in skin care products and baby care products.
What is the allergen in peanuts?
The major proteins Ara h1, Ara h2, and Ara h3 are the allergens in peanuts. Smelling the aroma of peanuts cannot cause an allergic reaction.
What about peanut oil?
Highly refined peanut oil is different from peanuts and from or gourmet peanut oil because it does not contain peanut allergens. Highly refined peanut oil is purified, refined, bleached, and deodorized, which removes the allergic proteins from the oil. The majority of peanut oil used by foodservice and consumers has been highly refined and processed. The FDA does not consider highly refined peanut oil as a food allergen. Since peanut oil is pressed from peanuts, some have questioned if peanut oil also contains peanut allergens. This question has confused many who would like to enjoy a Sichuan stir-fry, deep-fried turkey, or other foods cooked in peanut oil.

Palm oil and palm olein originate from the same plant, a palm species known as E. Guineesis. This plant grows in South East Asia, Africa and Latin America, and humans have been consuming various parts of it for over 5,000 years.
Palm oil is extracted from the flesh of the fruit of E. Guineesis using pressure. In its unrefined form, the palm oil is bright orange in color due to high amounts of carotene pigments. The oil is semi-solid at room temperature and is highly resistant to oxidation and prolonged exposure to heat. Palm oil is widely used in margarine and vegetable shortenings.
When the semi-solid palm oil is refined, it separates into palm olein and palm stearine. The palm olein has different characteristics than the palm oil, most notably that it remains completely liquid at room temperature. It is highly heat resistant, similar to palm oil, and it also resists the formation of breakdown products during frying and increases the shelf life of many products.
Although palm oil and palm olein are produced from the same plant and share many similar properties,
the main difference between them is their chemical state at room temperature. Semi-solid palm oil is used more frequently as a fat in bakery products, whereas liquid palm olein is considered the “gold standard” and is the most widely used oil for frying in the world.
