The FDA does not actually define what a highly refined oil is.


Basically highly refined oils are edible oils "resulting from a process that involves de-gumming, neutralizing, bleaching and deodorizing the oils extracted from plant-based starting materials such as soybeans and peanuts".


If you have any questions about the process or the allergen status of oils you may use, I would contact the manufacturer.
