Soybean oil's benefits make it the perfect choice for family cooking:
- 0g trans fats per serving1
- Principal source of omega-3s, which can help reduce blood pressure and prevent heart disease2
- A principal commercial source of vitamin E in the U.S. diet, which prevents cell damage that may lead to diseases such as cancer and heart disease2
- Unsaturated fats are found in soybean oil, and when they replace saturated fats, they can lower both total and "bad" LDL cholesterol levels3

About The United Soybean Board
USB's 70 farmer-directors work on behalf of all U.S. soybean farmers to achieve maximum value for their soy checkoff investments. These volunteers invest and leverage checkoff funds in programs and partnerships to drive soybean innovation beyond the bushel and increase preference for U.S. soy. That preference is based on U.S. soybean meal and oil quality and the sustainability of U.S. soybean farmers. As stipulated in the federal Soybean Promotion, Research and Consumer Information Act, the USDA Agricultural Marketing Service has oversight responsibilities for USB and the soy checkoff.
