Published on

Vegetable oils are the most important source of fats in
the diet. Fats are the essential component for the normal
growth and development of any living being. For
balanced body growth, the quality of oil in our diet is
important. Oil quality in vegetable oils is determined for
both nutritional and functional aspects. Edible oil quality
depends on the content of different fatty acids [1].
Saturated fatty acids and erucic acid, high in some edible
oils, are harmful as they aid deposition of cholesterol in
the arteries [2].
