Finally, would you like a small factual information on Canola Oil? Read the following amazing passage from Richardson International’s website.
Canola oil is made from canola seed. Canola oil is pressed from tiny canola seeds produced by beautiful yellow flowering plants of the Brassica family. Cabbages and cauliflower are also part of the same botanical family! Canola was bred naturally from its parent rapeseed in the early 1970s. Canola, however, is not rapeseed – their nutritional profiles are very different.
Consumers recognize canola oil for its nutritional attributes as it contains the lowest level of saturated fatty acids of any vegetable oil. It is high in monounsaturated fatty acids, which have been shown to reduce blood cholesterol levels, and has moderate levels of essential polyunsaturated fatty acids. It is also a rich source of vitamin E. Like all vegetable oils, canola oil is cholesterol- free.
These qualities are important in a healthy diet. Fatsand oils, such as canola, play an essential role in human nutrition. Fat is part of every cell in the body, a valuable source of energy, aids in absorption of the fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E and K, as well as beta-carotene, and slows digestion so that you feel full for a longer period.
