Refined Vegetable Oil
- What It’s Used In: Cooking Oil
- Problems Caused: Inflammation, Impair Insulin Response, Contribute To Heart Disease and Some Cancers
We referenced soybean oil earlier, which is part of this overall refined vegetable oil list. However, there are far more involved in the area. This is why we felt the big term needed its own individual section. Those included as RVOs are corn oil, safflower oil, canola oil, and even peanut oil. Extracting oil from seeds seems pretty natural, so what’s wrong? In commercial use, they are deodorized, bleached, exposed to high temperatures, and utilize chemical solvents. This removes all proper vitamins and minerals they once had. Now, they cause inflammation, impair one’s insulin response, and contribute to heart disease.
