Produced in the USA, our soybean oil is expelled pressed and fully refined without the use of chemicals or solvents. It has a well balanced make-up of fats consisting of approximately 16% saturated fats and 81% of unsaturated fats.

It also contains approximately 23% of the monounsaturated fat oleic acid. With a smoke point of 495 degree F (257 degrees C), it works well for medium heat applications including light frying and sauteing.
