Refined soybean oil is a type of edible oil that is extracted from soybeans and processed through a refining process to remove impurities, color, odor, and taste. The refining process results in a clear, neutral-tasting oil that is light in color and has a high smoke point, making it suitable for high-heat cooking methods. Refined soybean oil is a popular choice for cooking and frying, as well as in the production of processed foods, cosmetics, and other products. It is also a rich source of polyunsaturated fatty acids, making it a healthy alternative to other oils high in saturated fats. However, some concerns have been raised about the potential health effects of consuming genetically modified soybeans, which are widely used in the production of soybean oil.
