  • Peanut oil
  • Canola oil
  • Olive oil
  • Sunflower oil
  • Corn oil
  • Flaxseed oil
  • Avocado oil

You can also safely use soft tub margarines, which display the Heart Mark, in recipes. Also be on the lookout for cholesterol-lowering products (for example, Flora Pro.activ margarine and Cholestro Go sunflower oil).
