Back in the 80s, the only commonly available cooking oil in the market would have been the all-purpose vegetable oil. Today, the global cooking oils and fats market offers plenty of options. Long gone are the days when people had no choice but to use the cooking oils that were available in the market. Now, as people have become health conscious, they have become choosy about the food they eat. Even the everyday cooking oils are made with healthy ingredients that are more beneficial and less harmful to the body. 

Cooking oils and fats, both, form an important part of a healthy lifestyle and diet. Some drinks and food contain a bigger quantity of only one nutrient, which may contain fats. Among all available fats, dietary fat is essential for the human body for taking care of many body processes. The increasing demand for healthy cooking oils, especially in Asia Pacific, is expected to propel the global cooking oils and fats market. Changing lifestyle and increasing disposable income too are expected to contribute towards the growth of the global cooking oils and fats market in the years to come.  

Excessive consumption of fats and oils pose major health issues, thus is one of the threats to the global cooking oils and fats market. However, the introduction of healthy oils is expected to steady the growth of the global cooking oils and fats market in the years to come. 

Which Oils are Good for Health Conscious People?  

  • Olive Oil: Rich in monounsaturated fat, olive oil is good for the heart and skin. Can be best used for salad dressing and even for vegetables
