SOY OIL For Weight Loss
Soy oil is a reliable source of the two essential unsaturated fatty acids; however, the balance of omega-6 is in excess compared to omega-3. Over 85% of soy oil is made up from unsaturated lipids with omega-6 at 51g and omega-3 at 7g.
Over 50% of soy oil is composed of linoleic acid (omega-6).
Soy oil also supplies approx.25% oleic acid, mono-unsaturated lipids. To obtain a well-balanced oil, mix 2 teaspoons (approx.30g) of edible flax oil to 5 teaspoons (approx.70g) of soy oil and greatly increase the omega-3 balance and value.
The combined oil of 30g flax oil with 70g soy oil provides approx.22g of omega-3 and 40g of omega-6. A teaspoon a day equals 3g of omega-3 and 5g of omega-6.
