What is Cottonseed Oil Used For? Health Benefits and Side Effects of Cottonseed Oil in Food

Cottonseed oil can be used as source of food both for human beings and animals. It is used in mayonnaise, sauces, salad dressing, marinades and also as cooking oil. It is ideal for use in bakery goods and for cake icing. It is a major constituent of unsaturated fatty acids which are very healthy for the body and reduce the risk of cardiovascular and thromboembolic diseases. The oil is rich in anti-oxidants which serve as a protective shelter against various types of cancers. It has mild anti-inflammatory effects and can be used as a vaginal contraceptive. Badly refined cottonseed oil can cause infertility in men and women. It may cause some serious allergic reaction as well. Omega-6 which forms a major component of this oil can also cause many medical problems.
