Vegetable oils are edible oils which are extracted from the plants usually from their seeds like sunflower, mustard, palm, coconut etc. which majorly contribute to the daily diet, vegetable oils can be easily adulterated and purity of the edible oil is a big concern. In this research article different optical spectroscopy methods includes Raman and Fourier transfer infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy have been used to compute the purity and investigate the adulteration in edible oils which are commonly used and it also aims to achieve an easy and conventional way to analyse the purity of the vegetable oils.
