Introduction Vegetable oils are liquid vegetable fats that remain in the liquid form at room temperature. These lipids are most commonly extracted from various parts of plants such as seeds, fruits, or plant seedlings. Under the chemical terms they are a combination of triglycerides of higher saturated and unsaturated fatty acids. In other words, these compounds are esters of glycerol and higher fatty acids, containing in their structure long (low C14:0) aliphatic carbon chains [1] . Vegetable… Expand
