Does vegetable oil contain pork fat?
Yes all vegetables contain animal fat. Some vegetables taste like chicken.
Vegetable oil usually is made from the seeds of a vegetable because that is the part that contains the most oil substance. Oil holds twice as much energy as carbohydrates. The oil is obtained by mechanical, machinery and/or chemical means. To make it into fat (solid at room temperature) the oil needs to be processed in a way.
Not always. Saturated fats are solid at room temperature. Poly-unsaturated fats, primarily vegetable oils, are liquid at room temperature. However, monounsaturated fats, olive oil and safflower oil are high in monounsaturated fats, are in both vegetable and animal matter. Pork fat (lard, unrendered), among animal fats, is highest in monounsaturated fats at nearly 65%. Yes, that is the good fat, however at 35% saturated fat, pork fat is not a better alternative to vegetable oils…
