A lot of listicle articles online include soybean oil among foods that can cause inflammation due to its high Omega-6 content. However, wikipedia lists non-hydrogenated soybean oil as having an omega 6-3 ratio of 7.4:1, which is better than the 10:1 ratio for overall diet.
Digging deeper only seems to find more conflicting claims with regard to soybean oil and the impact of omega-6 fatty acids on inflammation.
I was about to eat a bag of BBQ chips when I thought to look at the ingredients and saw that they added soybean oil to their oil mixture. I looked at their other products and not everything had it in the ingredients, so you have to be careful.
I prefer the flavor and nutritional profile of water-tinned sardines to oil and recognize the huge percentage of them being oil-based. I've wondered, with all the Omega-3 benefits of fish oil, why wouldn't sardines be packed in ... sardine oil? Couldn't it be self-sustainable too as they're already rendering tons of it when preparing to can? I'd imagine this would enhance the flavors as well.
"Relative Profit Incentives of Soybean Commodities in the United States" by 737257
The primary profit incentive of growing soy is soybean meal (63.7% of profit is from livestock feed). The sale of soybean meal is a significant factor in lowering the price soybean oil.
The total weight by percentage of oil in an average soy bean is 16.5%-25.5% (1). This means that 74.5%-84.5% of the soy bean is dry mass, and is turned into soy meal during the soy crushing process. As of 02/20/2020, a kilogram of soybean oil is 0.66 USD (2), while a kilogram of soybean meal is 0.29 USD (3).
By calculating 16.5%-25.5% of the value of soybean oil per kilogram, and comparing it to 74.5%-84.5% of the value of soybean meal per kilogram, the relative value of each commodity in one kilogram of soybeans can be found. By weight, soybean meal ideally contains 12% moisture (8). Since Huskey (et. all) derived their numbers from soybeans by dry-mass weight, this 12% moisture must be added to the calculations. The variance range of both oil weight and dry weight will be averaged to 21% and 79% respectively, and 12% moisture weight will be added to the soybean meal. 21% of 0.66 USD is 0.1386 USD, while 79%(+12%) of 0.29 USD is 0.2639 USD. Rounded to the nearest cent, the value of soybean oil per kilogram of raw soybeans is 14 cents, while the value of soybean meal per kilogram of raw soybeans is 26 cents. This means that, per kilogram of raw soybeans, the total value of both soybean meal and soybean oil yielded is 40 cents. Since 14 cents is 35% of 40 cents, it can be concluded that soybean oil is responsible for 35% (rounded) of soybean value, while soybean meal makes up 65% (rounded).
The true cost of soybean oil if soybean meal were not sold can be calculated by considering the cost of soybean crushing. On average, it costs 9.36 USD to process one bushel of raw soybeans, of which, 6.93 USD is gained from the value of soybean meal, and 4.43 USD is gained from the value of soybean oil (4). With these numbers, it can be calculated that the total value of both soybean oil and soybean meal after processing is 10.68 USD per bushel. Since 4.43 USD is 41.47% of 10.68 USD, it can be calculated that the price of soybean oil must be 241% of it's current market price in order to meet the same profit which is yielded from both soybean meal and soybean oil combined. Utilizing whole soybeans as livestock feed, as opposed to separating the two commodities (via crushing), would be sign... keep reading on reddit ➡
Is it high in carbs or something? I kept seeing it in old threads saying it’s bad especially if you’re using a Mayo with that ingredient. What’s the deal?
I’ve been avoiding seed and vegetable industrial oils for the better part of 5 months. I want to make dan dan noodles tonight and could only find chili oil in soybean oil. Should I expect some side effects from having not consumed any in a while? Also how long will it take to detox
This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 54%. (I'm a bot)

I reached out to Mr Ash from the USDA Economic Research Service myself and ze replied (incredibly quickly) saying that ze would most likely have used the USDA’s Production, Supply and Distribution database or the Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates report as sources for this statistic and that furthermore:
>If the question really is how much soybean meal is consumed for feed from the processing of soybeans, then the percentage is closer to 77 percent.
In order to calculate the figure, you take the world total use for soybean meal (232.74 million metric tons) WASDE May 2019 - p29 and divide it by the world domestic crush for soybeans (301.63 million metric tons) WASDE May 2019- p28 which gives you 77%.According to Mr Ash, nearly all of the domestic use of soybean meal is for animal feed and this is backed up by this archived summary article from SoyaTech, which, while unsourced itself, is from independent technical resource in the soy industry..
>About 85 percent of the world’s soybeans are processed, or “crushed,” annually into soybean meal and oil. Approximately 98 percent of the soybean meal that is crushed is further processed into animal feed with the balance used to make soy flour and proteins.- SoyaTech 2017
Here we are comparing statistics about global soybean production vs global soybean meal consumption. The amount of meal consumed by ton is 77% of the total soybean production globally. Assuming that only trace amounts of soybean meal is used for anything other than animal feed (as suggested by Mr Ash, an expert in the field), we can rest our figure for animal feed consumption at 77% of total global soybean production.
Three main kinds of soybean meal are produced:
• Full-fat soybean meal, made from whole soybeans. It has a hi... keep reading on reddit ➡
I want to learn more about these commodities, what would you say are the best resources to gain knowledge on these? Knowledge mostly about the factors one should watch for when trading these
Any responses are appreciated.
"it is important to re-emphasize that our longer-term view for a commodity super-cyle is a global, not China-centric, view. It is predicated on globally synchronized policy aimed at REV'ing global commodity demand -- Redistributional policies (the 'War on Income Inequality'), Environmental policies (the 'War on Climate Change') and Versatility in supply chain initiatives (the trade war). This structural rise in global demand growth against structural supply constraints due to the 'Revenge of the Old Economy' makes this commodity super-cycle a worldwide phenomena unlike the 1970s super-cycle (US and Europe) or the 2000s super-cycle (BRICs), leaving it robust to pockets of softness."

The microbiome and specific taxa composing it are dramatically affected by diet; specifically, by high-fat diets. Increasing evidence indicates the association between dysbiosis and health or disease state, including cardiovascular diseases (CVD) and atherosclerosis pathogenesis in human and animal models. To investigate the effects of high SO intake, C57BL/6 mice were orally supplemented with SO-based emulsion (SOE) for one month, followed by analyses of atherosclerosis-related biomarkers and microbiota profiling by 16S rRNA gene sequencing of fecal DNA. SOE-supplementation caused compositional changes to 64 taxa, including enrichment in Bacteroidetes, Mucispirillum, Prevotella and Ruminococcus, and decreased Firmicutes. These changes were previously associated with atherosclerosis in numerous studies. Among the shifted taxa, 40 significantly correlated with at least one atherosclerosis-related biomarker (FDR < 0.05), while 13 taxa positively correlated with the average of all biomarkers. These microbial alterations also caused a microbial-derived metabolic-pathways shift, including enrichment in different amino-acid metabolic-pathways known to be implicated in CVD. In conclusion, our results demonstrate dysbiosis following SOE supplementation associated with atherosclerosis-related biomarkers. These findings point to the microbiome as a possible mediator to CVD, and it may be implemented into non-invasive diagnostic tools or as potential therapeutic strategies.

Hello, I have a strange question and I can’t really find anything online about it. Just for background info, my son (5) can’t eat wheat for sure. He also used to get crazy eczema before we stopped eating dairy, but I’m not sure if he’s grown out of it because we are now vegan.
But my big confusion is when it comes to soy. He eats tofu a lot which he is totally fine with and eats by the handful no problem. But for some reason over the past year whenever he eats soybean oil he gets a crazy peeling chapped rash around his mouth, it’s painful to even apply cerave which is the only thing that soothes and makes it go away. This past summer it was really bad and then I also happened to stop buying a brand of tortilla chips with soybean oil and it went away, however I didn’t attribute it to soybean oil at the time. I actually thought his mask was what was causing it.
Before we stopped eating eggs Hellman’s mayo would give him a full body rash when he was around 2. He has the same reaction to vegenaise unless it’s soy free, so I don’t think it could be eggs.
I only just recently put together the pieces of the common factor being soybean oil because I bought a bag of chips at the grocery store I don’t usually get (they’re made by a local restaurant and more expensive) and I gave my son a few. The next day his mouth was red, chapped, and starting to have all this dead skin. Sure enough soybean oil was used to fry the chips.
So my question is how can he tolerate soy in the form of tofu but soybean oil gives him a painful reaction? I’m 99% positive it’s the soybean oil, but it’s just not making sense to me.
