A liquid cooking oil that is extracted from the fruit, seeds, or nuts of a vegetable plant, such as corn, soybeans, peanuts, safflower seeds, sunflower seeds, and rapeseeds (used for canola oil). It may consist of one type of oil or it may be a blend of oils that have been highly refined. Vegetable oil is generally light colored, has a very mild flavor, and can be heated to high temperatures. It is very useful as a cooking oil, but it is not as desirable for use in salad dressings.
