Hispanic Kitchen is often asked to recommend a multi-purpose, healthy cooking oil that doesn’t compete with the flavors of our traditional Latino recipes and one of our top picks is always soybean oil (vegetable oil). It has a neutral taste and a heart healthy profile!
Though many may not realize it, there is a good chance soybean oil is already part of your cooking routine since soybean oil is commonly labeled “vegetable oil.” Just check the ingredients label of the vegetable oil bottle at home and see for yourself.
Soybean oil is easy to find at your grocery sotre and the most widely used edible oil in the U.S
Most vegetable oil is heart healthy 100% soybean oil. Soybean oil carries FDA’s heart health claim confirming it may be able to reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. ¹
Soybean oil is great for baking, frying and sautéing. Its neutral flavor allows other flavors to shine through!
