Produced from maize germs, corn oil is primarily used as a cooking oil, partly due to its high smoke point which makes it an ideal frying agent. Corn oil is also a vital ingredient in some margarines. In recent years, its declining cost has also made it more viable as a feedstock for biodiesel production. Other industrial uses include the manufacturing of soap, paints, erasers, inks, textiles and rustproofing agents.
