According Wikipedia, cooking oil is plant, animal, or synthetic fat used in frying, baking, and other types of cooking. It is also used in food preparation and flavoring that doesn’t involve heat, such as salad dressings and bread dips, and in this sense might be more accurately termed edible oil. Cooking oil is typically a liquid, although some oils that contain saturated fat, such as coconut oil, palm oil and palm kernel oil, are solid at room temperature.
Types of cooking oil include: olive oil, palm oil, soybean oil, canola oil (rapeseed oil), pumpkin seed oil, corn oil, sunflower oil, safflower oil, peanut oil, grape seed oil,sesame oil, argan oil, rice bran oil and other vegetable oils.
- Cooking oils that contain unsaturated fats include olive oil, corn oil, canola oil, soybean oil, sunflower oil, sesame oil, and safflower oil.
- Cooking oils that are high in saturated fat include coconut oil, palm kernel, and palm oil.
Oil is used in cooking and people consume additional amounts of fat from cooking oil aside from fats naturally found in food. Fat in the diet is essential but consuming high amounts can actually lead to heart problems. There are different types of fat in cooking oils depending on the source and it is important not only to use the best cooking oil but also to consume the right amounts in order to prevent harmful effects on the health.
“According to the American Heart Association, daily intake of saturated fat should not exceed 7% of one’s total calories for the day. Although cooking oils like palm oil, coconut oil, and other tropical oils are considered vegetable oils, these still contain high amounts of saturated fats which can still be bad for the health.” – Anandlab.com

The process of hydrogenation makes an unsaturated fat such as vegetable oil take on the dangerous properties of saturated fats. Hydrogenated oils are “processed fats”. Partially hydrogenated oils contain large amounts of chemically altered fats known as trans fatty acids.
