The Benefits of a Variety of Vegetable Oils


Most of us eat vegetable oil every day in some form or another, but while you might think that’s unhealthy, these oils all have different health benefits and it is actually beneficial to eat these fats in moderation rather than using animal fats like butter or lard. While the most notably healthy vegetable oil is olive oil, this useful infographic offers a number health benefits from an array of vegetable oils including flaxseed oil, coconut oil, sesame oil, peanut oil and avocado oil.

While peanut oil has a particularly bad health image because it is high in fat and mostly used for deep frying foods because it has a high smoke point, it is high in monosaturated fats, which are good for raising your good cholesterol levels.
