In the last 5-10 years canola oil has practically taken over as the food processing industry’s oil of choice. One can hardly find granola in a health food store without Canola Oil as an ingredient. The same is true for salad dressings and snack foods. Why is this? Is it so superior in health qualities to say, extra virgin, cold pressed Olive Oil? Not on your life – all the natural health pundits will point to any number of alternatives but never praise Canola as health promoting.
