Olivine oil is extracted from soybeans and is a good source of healthy fats, including omega-3 fatty acids and polyunsaturated fats. All of the oil produced (dominated by the flagship Olivine brand) is derived from soya beans and cottonseed. Other cooking oil brands produced include Panol, Soyola, Sunseed, Mazola and Vegol. While these types of fats may have several health benefits, soybean oil is still pure fat, which means that eating too much of it can be detrimental for your overall health. When eaten in moderation and in place of unhealthy fats, such as lard, soybean oil can be a healthy addition to your diet.
