    Pure Wesson 100% Natural Canola Oil is the most versatile type of vegetable oil and it provides the best nutritional balance of all popular cooking oils.

    Wesson Canola's light, delicate taste makes it the perfect oil to be used in every recipe that calls for vegetable oil.

    • Pure Wesson 100 percent Natural Canola Oil is
    good for your heart.

    • Wesson’s canola oil has the same health benefits as olive oil without the strong taste allowing for the food’s taste to come through in cooking.

    • Canola oil provides a source for healthy fat (monounsaturated fat) that is essential for everydiet.

    • According to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (USDA), Wesson Canola Oil now comes with a qualified health claim on its ability to reduce the risk of coronary heart disease (CHD) due to its unsaturated fat content.

      AFAIK, Canola is a brand name for rapeseed oil. Now the problem with oil from rape is a fatty acid called erucic acid. It's associated with heart lesions. They've tried to breed it out of the varieties they use for the oil, but there's still some in there.

      Contains a substance associated with heart lesions? Does that sound "good for your heart"?

      All that claim boils down to is that they've leapt on a belief that monounsaturated fats, such as are found in olive oil, duck fat, etc., might be "good for the heart":

      Monounsaturated fat - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

      Since rapeseed oil is high in monounsaturates, they're making the claim on that basis.

        Indeed. Which is egregious nutritionism. It might have oleic acid and ALA but it also has a bunch of linoleic acid, twice as much as olive oil. I think that oleic acid protects against heart disease but not because it lowers LDL cholesterol. Its effects on insulin sensitivity, HDL, and various hormones like adiponectin and testosterone are desirable. It also prevents breast cancer by modulating gene expression whereas linoleic acid makes all of that worse in excess. Olive oil and getting some omega 3 fats from a good source like fish makes a lot more sense.
        Stabbing conventional wisdom in its face.

          Heart Healthy logo doesn't mean much anymore when even ice cream has the heart healthy logo now.

              I saw a youtube clip on how Canola oil is made. I immediately understood where the term rapeseed came from xD

                So, I have a big bottle of canola oil that I have ceased to use, and I don't know what to do with it. Pour it down the sink drain?

                I must say that fields of yellow rape blossoms are really beautiful. And in Japan, stalks of rape with buds/blossoms are used as a green for various dishes in springtime. So, it's not all bad.

                  Put it on the curb, someone might take it.

                    Probably a difference between cooking a couple of stalks versus using tons of seeds and chemically extracting oil and putting it through many processes.

                      Please do not pour it down the drain. Any kind of fat is bad for plumbing and sewers. The fats mix with other chemicals/minerals in the water and basically form big blocks of soap-like material that can cause major problems. Just toss it in the garbage.

                        My husband uses it to start the wood for the grill - he douses the newspaper with it and puts it in the chimney under the wood. It was a tip from Alton Brown.

                        When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life.

                        When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down "happy". They told me I didn’t understand the assignment.

                        I told them they didn’t understand life.

                          Do you have any cast iron? You could use it to season it. I wonder if it could be turned into soap?

                          As for the whole rape plant, you're getting far less of the baddies in a portion of that than the oil. You're not eating the seeds in their young form. You're eating the mature plant. Plus they have to process lots of seeds to get an ounce of oil. Way more than you'd eat.
