    How Its Made - Canola Oil

    Shop Now
    I was just flipping channels and came across the tail end of a 'How Its Made' episode on Canola Oil (science channel).

    Ummm, I saw the 'wax' particles being filtered out (they were quite nasty looking), that are later turned into vegetable oil, the bleaching process to make it look pretty, and some other chemical process to make it smell better.

    I still cannot get the bad look of my face after seeing the 'wax' particles ooze out of some filter machine. Ugh.

    Totally feelin' your disgust.
    I saw that video on Youtube and showed it to my family a few weeks ago. My siblings gagged, and my parents stopped using canola.

    The announcer sounds so optimistic too. "It's a source of good fats!" Right...

    And they ruined a perfectly good steak by frying it in that crap!

    I think it's horrible that they use some of the by-products as animal feed.

    Nothing about that video sounded healthy... Solvents! Bleach! Sodium Hydroxide! Old looking pipes that eject sludge and wax! Yumm!
