Free of all trans fatty acids, Asoyia oil requires no hydrogenation and is low in saturated fat, non-GMO, and offers superior cooking performance with fryer life up to double that of conventional soybean oils. It’s processed from 1 percent, ultra-low linolenic soybeans, which were developed after 30 years of research at Iowa State University.
Linolenic acid causes soybean oil to go rancid quickly, so soybean oil is usually hydrogenated, but Asoyia requires no hydrogenation.

Carotino, “the red cooking oil,” is cholesterol-free, trans fat-free and contains high levels of both Vitamin A and E. It’s made from palm oil and is mild in taste, which makes it a good choice for frying and as an ingredient. Studies show lipoprotein blood plasma, a potent risk indicator for coronary heart disease, was significantly reduced when palm oil provided most of the dietary fat.
