Medical Reference
A.
Soybean oil is safe for most adults when taken by mouth in amounts normally found in food and when applied to the skin as an insect repellent in recommended amounts. Pharmaceutical quality soybean oil is also safe when used as a nutritional supplement in intravenous feedings. The processed soybean oil (unsaponifiable fractions of soybean oil) has been used safely in research studies for up to 6 months.

Special Precautions & Warnings:

Pregnancy and breast-feeding: Soybean oil is safe for pregnant and breast-feeding women when used as part of the diet. But the safety of soybean oil during pregnancy and breast-feeding is not known when used in amounts greater than those commonly found in foods.

Peanut or soybean allergy: People who are allergic to peanuts, soybeans and other plants that are members of the Fabaceae/Leguminosea family might also be allergic to soybean oil.
