Dutch term or phrase: geraffineerde plantaardige oliën
I would say : refined vegetal oils but the client sent a reference list with "vegetable" oils. Is this correct?

Also, please confirm that I got the correct translation for "polyonverzadigde vetzuren" as
polyunsaturated fatty acids. If yes, what is "meervoudige onverzadigde olië"?

Thanks!

Explanation:
vegetal is geen correct Engels volgens de Longman Dictionary of Contemporary English. Polyunsaturated fatty acids lijkt me correct, al eerder tegengekomen. Ik stel voor polyunsaturated oil, maar ik ben geen specialist in de materie...
