Common Types of Oils
Cooking oils are extracted from plant sources like nuts, olives, and seeds, each of which imparts its own flavor.
One of the most common oils, canola is the lowest in saturated fat (it has just 7 percent) and delivers a generous amount of healthy monounsaturated fat. Its neutral flavor makes it ideal for cooking and baking. It’s also good for pan-frying on low to medium heat.
