Soy Oil


#1

Does anyone know if there is there any potential danger w/ soybean oil? I don't eat anything that has soy protein in it...but the oil is seemingly unavoidable.


#2

I'm not sure myself but I do remember someone else asking this question and the answer was no. Its soy proteins (isoflavones)that are the poison. Soy oil is ok although not the best as far as Omega 3's and whatnot.


#3

soy oil can interfere with thyroid function i think....

i believe it's associated with fat gain in livestock.

in small amounts it's no big deal. but don't buy it thinking it's a good oil to cook with.
