This list of vegetable oils includes all vegetable oils that are extracted from plants by placing the relevant part of the plant under pressure to extract the oil. Although most plants contain some oil, only the oil from certain major oil crops [1] complemented by a few dozen minor oil crops[2] is widely used and traded.

Oils may also be extracted from plants by dissolving parts of plants in water or another solvent, and distilling the oil. Oils extracted in this manner are called essential oils. Essential oils often have different properties and uses than pressed vegetable oils. Oils can also be made by infusing parts of plants in a base oil a process known as maceration.

Vegetable oils can be classified in several ways, for example:

  • By source: most, but not all vegetable oils are extracted from the fruits or seeds of plants, and the oils may be classified by grouping oils from similar plants, such as "nut oils".
  • By use: oils from plants are used in cooking, for fuel, for cosmetics, for medical purposes, and for other industrial purposes.

The vegetable oils are grouped below in common classes of use.


Edible oils

See also: Cooking oil

Major oils


These oils account for a significant fraction of world-wide edible oil production. All are also used as fuel oils.

  • Coconut oil, a cooking oil, high in saturated fat, particularly used in baking and cosmetics.[3]
  • Corn oil, a common cooking oil with little odor or taste.[4]
  • Cottonseed oil, used in manufacturing potato chips and other snack foods. Very low in trans fats.[5]
  • Canola oil (a variety of rapeseed oil), one of the most widely used cooking oils, from a (trademarked) cultivar of rapeseed.[6]
  • Olive oil, used in cooking, cosmetics, soaps, and as a fuel for traditional oil lamps.[7]
  • Palm oil, the most widely produced tropical oil. Also used to make biofuel.[8]
  • Peanut oil (Ground nut oil), a clear oil used for dressing salads and, due to its high smoke point, especially used for frying.[9]
  • Safflower oil, produced for export for over 50 years, first for use in paint industry, now mostly as a cooking oil.[10]
  • Sesame oil, cold pressed as light cooking oil, hot pressed for a darker and stronger flavor.[11]
  • Soybean oil, produced as a byproduct of processing soy meal.[12]
  • Sunflower oil, a common cooking oil, also used to make biodiesel.[13]

Nut oils


Nut oils are generally used in cooking, for their flavor. They are also quite costly, because of the difficulty of extracting the oil.

  • Almond oil, used as an edible oil, but primarily in the manufacture of pharmaceuticals.[14]
  • Cashew oil, somewhat comparable to olive oil. May have value for fighting dental cavities.[15]
  • Hazelnut oil, mainly used for its flavor. Also used in skin care, because of its slight astringent nature.[16][17]
  • Macadamia oil, strongly flavored, contains no trans-fats, and a good balance of omega-3 and omega-6.[18]
  • Pecan oil, valued as a food oil, but requiring fresh pecans for good quality oil.[19]
  • Pistachio oil, strongly flavored oil, particularly for use in salads.[20]
  • Walnut oil, used for its flavor, also used by Renaissance painters in oil paints.[21][22]

Oils from melon and gourd seeds

Members of the cucurbitaceae include gourds, melons, pumpkins, and squashes. Seeds from these plants are noted for their oil content, but little information is available on methods of extracting the oil. In most cases, the plants are grown as food, with dietary use of the oils as a byproduct of using the seeds as food.[23]

  • Bottle gourd oil, extracted from the seeds of the Lagenaria siceraria, widely grown in tropical regions throughout the world. Used medicinally and as an edible oil.[24]
  • Buffalo gourd oil, from the seeds of the Cucurbita foetidissima, a vine with a rank odor, native to southwest North America.[25]
  • Pumpkin seed oil, a specialty cooking oil, produced in Austria and Slovenia. Poor tolerance for high temperatures.[26]
  • Watermelon seed oil, pressed from the seeds of Citrullus vulgaris. Traditionally used in cooking in West Africa.[27]

Food supplements

A number of oils are used as food supplements, for their nutrient content or medical effect.

  • Acai oil, from the fruit of several species of the Açaí Palm (Euterpe). Grown in the Amazon region. Similar to grape seed oil. They are used in cosmetics and as a food supplement.[28]
  • Blackcurrant seed oil, used as a food supplement, because of high content of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids.[29]
  • Borage seed oil, similar to blackcurrant seed oil, used primarily medicinally.[30]

Oils used for biofuel

See also: Vegetable oil used as fuel

A number of the oils listed above are used for biofuel (biodiesel and Straight Vegetable Oil) in addition to having other uses. A number of oils are used only as biofuel.[72][73]

Although diesel engines were invented, in part, with vegetable oil in mind,[74] diesel fuel is almost exclusively petroleum-based. Rising oil prices have made biodiesel more attractive. Vegetable oils are evaluated for use as a biofuel based on:

  1. Suitability as a fuel, based on flash point, energy content, viscosity, combustion products and other factors
  2. Cost, based in part on yield, effort required to grow and harvest, and post-harvest processing cost


Multipurpose oils also used as biofuel

The oils listed immediately below are all (primarily) used for other purposes - all but tung oil are edible - but have been considered for use as biofuel.

  • Castor oil, lower cost than many candidates. Kinematic viscosity may be an issue.[75]
  • Coconut oil (copra oil), promising for local use in places that produce coconuts.[76]
  • Corn oil, appealing because of the abundance of maize as a crop.
  • Cottonseed oil, shown in one study not to be cost effective when compared with standard diesel.[77]
  • False flax oil, from Camelina sativa, used in Europe in oil lamps until the 18th century.[47]
  • Hemp oil, relatively low in emissions. High flash point. Production is problematic in some countries because of its association with marijuana.[78]
  • Mustard oil, shown to be comparable to Canola oil as a biofuel.[79]
  • Palm oil, very popular for biofuel, but the environmental impact from growing large quantities of oil palms has recently called the use of palm oil into question.[80]
  • Peanut oil, used in one of the first demonstrations of the Diesel engine in 1900.[74]
  • Radish oil. Wild radish contains up to 48% oil, making it appealing as a fuel.[81]
  • Rapeseed oil, the most common base oil used in Europe in biodiesel production.[73]
  • Ramtil oil, used for lighting in India.[82]
  • Rice bran oil, appealing because of lower cost than many other vegetable oils. Widely grown in Asia.[83]
  • Safflower oil, explored recently as a biofuel in Montana.[84]
  • Soybean oil, not economical as a fuel crop, but appealing as a byproduct of soybean crops for other uses.[73]
  • Sunflower oil, suitable as a fuel, but not necessarily cost effective.[85]
  • Tung oil, referenced in several lists of vegetable oils that are suitable for biodiesel.[86][87]

Inedible oils used only or primarily as biofuel

These oils are extracted from plants that are cultivated solely for producing oil-based biofuel.[88] These, plus the major oils described above, have received much more attention as fuel oils than other plant oils.

  • Algae oil, recently developed by MIT scientist Isaac Berzin. Byproduct of a smokestack emission reduction system.[89][90]
  • Copaiba, an oleoresin tapped from species of genus Copaifera. Used in Brazil as a major source of biodiesel.[91]
  • Honge oil, pioneered as a biofuel by Udipi Shrinivasa in Bangalore, India.[92]

  • Petroleum nut oil, from the Petroleum nut native to the Philippines. The Philippine government once explored the use of the petroleum nut as a biofuel.[97]

Drying oils

Drying oils are vegetable oils that dry to a hard finish at normal room temperature. Such oils are used as the basis of oil paints, and in other paint and wood finishing applications. In addition to the oils listed here, walnut, sunflower and safflower oil are also considered to be drying oils.[98]

  • Dammar oil, from the Canarium strictum, used in paint as a drying agent.[99] Can also be used as in oil lamps.[100]
  • Linseed oil, used in paints, also suitable for human consumption.[101]
  • Poppyseed oil, similar in usage to linseed oil but with better color stability.[98]
  • Stillingia oil (also called Chinese vegetable tallow oil), obtained by solvent from the seeds of Sapium sebiferum. Used as a drying agent in paints and varnishes.[102][103]
  • Tung oil, used in wood finishing.[104]
  • Vernonia oil is produced from the seeds of the Vernonia galamensis. It is composed of 73-80% vernolic acid, which can be used to make epoxies for manufacturing adhesives, varnishes and paints, and industrial coatings.[105]
