by M. Shahbandeh, last edited Aug 9, 2019
U.S. consumption of edible oils by type 2018 Soybean oil has the highest level of consumption of any edible oil in the United States in 2018. In that year, Americans consumed about 10.1 million metric tons of soybean oil, compared to about 2.7 million metric tons of canola oil.
Soybean cultivation

The United States, Brazil, and Argentina are the top three producers of soybeans in the world as of the 2018/2019 crop year. Soybean production in the United States amounted to around 4.54 billion bushels in 2018, up from just under four billion bushes in 2015. Most of the U.S. states with the highest volume of soybean production are located in the Midwest, with Illinois, Iowa, and Minnesota topping the list for soybean production within the United States.

Edible oil exports

Although soybean oil is the most consumed type of edible oil in the United States, the export volume of palm oil is the highest of any type of vegetable oil. Palm oil is commonly used in beauty products, processed snack foods, among other everyday items. Indonesia and Malaysia are the top two exporters of palm oil as of 2018/2019.
