Many people have been asking me why am i upset with Whole Foods about canola oil, I thought it was good for you? Heart healthy? Wrong! That is what industry has lead you to believe. You see there is no such thing as a canola plant, I run in to quite a few people who believe there is. Canola oil was developed from rape seed ... which is considered unsuited to human consumption because it contains a long-chain fatty acid called erucic acid, which under some circumstances is associated with fibrotic heart lesions. Canola oil was bred to contain little if any erucic acid and has drawn the attention of nutritionists because of its high oleicacid content. but there are some indications that canola oil presents dangers of its own. it has a high sulphur content and goes rancid easily ... during the deodorizing process, the omega 3 fatty acids of processed canola oil are transformed into trans fatty acids. Not to mention that over 90% of Canola Oil is genetically modified (GMO). GMO's have been directly linked to Cancer.
