    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.
