VEGETABLE OIL VEGETABLE OIL 5

Vegetable oils are triglycerides extracted from plants. Such oils have been part of human culture for millennia.  Edible vegetable oils are used in food, both in cooking and as supplements. 

Many oils, edible and otherwise, are burned as fuel, such as in oil lamps and as a substitute for petroleum-based fuels. Some of the many other uses include wood finishing, oil painting, and skin care.

 

The term "vegetable oil" can be narrowly defined as referring only to substances that are liquid at room temperature, or broadly defined without regard to a substance's state of matter at a given temperature. While a large majority of the entries in this list fit the narrower of these definitions, some do not qualify as vegetable oils according to all understandings of the term.

 

Although most plants contain some oil, only the oil from certain major oil crops complemented by a few dozen minor oil crops is widely used and traded.

 

Vegetable oils can be classified in several ways, for example:

 

By source: most, but not all vegetable oils are extracted from the fruits or seeds of plants, and the oils may be classified by grouping oils from similar plants, such as "nut oils".

By use: as described above, oils from plants are used in cooking, for fuel, for cosmetics, for medical purposes, and for other industrial purposes.

 

The vegetable oils are grouped below in common classes of use.

Oils used for biofuel
