What cooking oil is recommended for baking?
Because of its mild, buttery taste, Baguio Corn Oil has long been a favorite margarine, butter and shortening substitute of bakers. It is high in polyunsaturated fats, making it a healthier alternative to recipes that call for solid butter, shortening or margarine. Adjustments, however, must be made when it comes to the amount of corn oil needed in a recipe. For best results, we recommend using recipes developed specifically for oil or melted margarine, butter or shortening.
Can cooking oil be added in salad?
Yes. Perfect to use in salad dressings is the Baguio Canola Oil. Canola oil is a heart-healthy oil and considered among the healthiest cooking oils. On top of that, it has a neutral flavour that makes it one of the most versatile, multi purpose oils today.

All Baguio cooking oils have a shelf life of two (2) years. To maximize the shelf life of your cooking oils, keep away from light. Exposure to light causes the oils to break down and shortens shelf life.
Why is it best to refrigerate cooking oil?
While you may store cooking oil at room temperature, it is best to refrigerate the oil to retain its optimum flavour. This is especially recommended to avoid the spoilage of your healthier oils like the Baguio Canola Oil. Healthier oils that contain great quantities of polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats spoil more easily than ones containing saturated fats.
