Vegetable Oil Becomes Mainstream From The 1960s Onwards

Most other industrial vegetable oils were introduced around the 1960s, although soybean oil came earlier in the 1930s. These oils were big hits since they were:

  • Cheaper to produce and could utilize plant by-products
  • Convenient for industrial and home cooking
  • “Heart healthy” according to current nutritional knowledge.

Thanks to their affordability and ease of use, vegetable oils became popular ingredients in processed and fast food.
