Is Canola Oil Actually Healthy?

Two days ago, I have posted an article, Truth About Cooking Oil. Today, I am going to share with you “is canola oil actually healthy?”

Most of my friends have asked me why I choose this topic, because all they hear in the mainstream media is that canola oil is heart healthy and a good source of monounsaturated fats similar to olive oil. Misinformation about the safety of canola oil may stem from the fact. Hence, I am sharing this article to reveal the truth about canola oil.

Where does canola oil come from?

Canola oil comes from the crushed seeds of the canola plant. Once harvested, canola seeds are taken to a facility where they are crushed to extract the oil contained within the seed. This oil is then further refined and bottled as canola oil.

Canola Plant - Canola Oil

According CanolaInfo.org, Canola Oil  is a “Heart-healthy, affordable and ideal for any type of cooking.” This is because canola oil has the least saturated fat of any common cooking oil. In fact, it has less than half the saturated fat of olive or soybean oil. You can read more here:- CanolaInfo | What is Canola Oil?. You’ll get a lot information about Canola Oil in this website.

Even WebMD also agrees that the benefits of canola oil can help to reduce your risk for heart disease. You can find out more at here:-

Let me show you a video on how canola oil made:-

Let’s continue to discover the DIRTY truth about canola oil.

Yes, it’s true that canola oil is high in monounsaturates, but let Mike Geary explains why canola oil is anything but “healthy” –> The DIRTY Truth about Canola Oil.

Anyway, please do not worry about the safe level of canola oil. It is still a healthy and safe choice when it comes to oils. Years ago, canola oil was produced from the rapeseed plant which contains very high levels of erucic acid and can be toxic to humans. This fact is clearly stated by Mike Geary in his article, The DIRTY Truth about Canola Oil.

Let’s see the answer from MayoClinic

Canola oil: Does it contain toxins? – MayoClinic.com

According to Katherine Zeratsky (MayoClinic Nutritionist), canola oil is generally recognized as safe by the Food and Drug Administration.

When I check with the FDA, they have stated in their Qualified Health Claims letter

“Canola oil (19 grams – about 1 ½ tablespoons per day) may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease due to its unsaturated fat content, according to supportive but not conclusive research.  Canola oil should replace a similar amount of saturated fat in the diet without increasing calories.”

So, the conclusion is, Canola Oil Is Actually Healthy!

I guess what you’re really trying to say here is canola oil is really not very healthy? I think I will try to find out more about the processing of oil oil as this is my now number 1 oil for everything. I’ve also heard that canola oil is GMO? Have you heard that too?

Hi Cyn, nowadays, canola oil is a healthy and safe choice. Only in early years, canola oil was produced from the rapeseed plant which contains very high levels of erucic acid and can be toxic to humans. Yes, I know canola oil is GMO. However, till now, there are still no conclusions about GMO impacts on human health, so more conclusive research must be completed.
