Cooking oils

Cooking oils

Cooking oils tend to get their name from the nuts, seeds, fruits, plants, or cereals they're extracted from.

They're characterised by their high-fat content, including saturated fat, monounsaturated, and polyunsaturated fatty acids. Consuming too much saturated fat - more than 20g for women and 30g for men per day - makes the body produce cholesterol that increases the risk of heart disease.
