Vegetable Oils : what is it?
Vegetable oil is an acceptable common name for an oil that contains more than one type of vegetable oil. Generally, when such a vegetable oil blend is used as an ingredient in another food, it may be listed in the ingredients as “vegetable oil.”
There are two exceptions: if the vegetable oils are ingredients of a cooking oil, salad oil, or table oil, the oils must be speciﬁcally named in the ingredient list (e.g., canola oil, corn oil, saﬄower oil), and using the general term vegetable oil is not acceptable. As well, if any of the oils are coconut oil, palm oil, palm kernel oil, peanut oil, or cocoa butter, the oils must be speciﬁcally named in the ingredient list.
When two or more vegetable oils are present and one or more of them has been modiﬁed or hydrogenated, the common name on the principal display panel and in the list of ingredients must include the word “modiﬁed” or “hydrogenated,” as appropriate (e.g., modiﬁed vegetable oil, hydrogenated vegetable oil, modiﬁed palm kernel oil).
Vegetable oils are used in:
- Chemically leavened batters (e.g., muﬃn mixes)
- Dough additives (to replace the fat)
- Short sponges (to replace the butter or fat)
