Vegetable oils are not a 'natural' oil and are a recent phenomenon of the industrial age.
Vegetable oils are made from highly processed vegetable seeds (not vegetables) and are very cheap to produce.
The polyunsaturated fats found in vegetable oils are highly unsafe.
These fats oxidise easily and can cause inflammation as well as mutation in cells. This can further lead to many diseases like cancer, heart disease, endometriosis, PCOS etc.
Vegetable oils are also high in Omega 6 fats, an imbalance in your levels of Omega 3 and Omega 6 triggers inflammation in your body causing free radicals to form and damage to your cells.
Additionally, the added preservatives, pesticides and chemicals involved in the processing of vegetable oils make it a very unhealthy choice for any household.
Here are some of the industrial seed oils to look out for:
- Canola oil
- Sunflower oil
- Rice bran oil
- Soybean oil
- Peanut oil
It's incredibly common to find these harmful industrial oils hidden in your favourite packeted foods.

Introducing Sol Ghee:
Firstly, what is ghee?
Ghee is a form of highly-clarified butter made by melting regular butter (made from cows milk).
The butter separates into liquid fats and milk solids. Once separated, the milk solids are removed, which means ghee has less lactose than butter.
Ghee is heated for longer than other types of clarified butter, which contributes to a stronger and nuttier flavor, as well as a darker hue.
Ghee is free of polyunsaturated fats which makes it a better choice over vegetable oil.
It's also full of antioxidants that help in cleansing the body.
Plus, it's packed with vitamins including A, D, E, and K.
