I went to a couple of resturants tonight and turned away because they told me that their vegetable oil that they use now has warnings on them. Nobody could show me this. I find this hard to beleive. I could believe other ingredents but not vegatable oil. Does anyone have any information on this. This was in Westbury NY.

I was told by our dietician to avoid all vegetable oil unless the source is oil (canola and soy, act.). If the product just says vegetable oil I would avoid it. Also look for "natural flavour" and "spices" as both of these may contain trace peanuts.

Maybe it depends on where the oil was obtained? In Germany, plant-derived oils are listed only as "pflanzliches fett", which literally means "plant fat". On multi-language food packages, the English translation is "vegetable oil." However, I've been advised that this could, in fact, be any fat not derived from an animal source.

Peanuts are a vegetable - therefore peanut oil can be considered vegetable oil. Peanuts are in the legume family - same as beans and peas, they are not a nut. When they say vegetable oil, I always ask what kind of vegetable oil - it can be soybean, corn, cottonseed, etc.

I read somewhere that Vegetable oils may contain peanut proteins and if the percentage of the peanut oil is below 25% It may not appear on the food label (depends on individual country food regulations).
I stick to Crisco.
