Bean Oil Facts

Bean Oil is a vegetable oil extracted from the seeds of the soybean. It is one of the most widely consumed cooking oils and the second most consumed vegetable oil. As a drying oil, processed bean oil is also used as a base for printing inks and oil paints.

Chinese records dating prior to 2000 B.C. mention use of cultivated soybeans to produce edible soy oil. Ancient Chinese literature reveals that soybeans were extensively cultivated and highly valued as a use for the soybean oil production process before written records were kept.

Soybean oil is can be used as baking ingredients, condiments, printing ink, oil paints, and extend the duration of some essential oils e.g. geranium oil.
