Canola Oil Suppliers in Europe
Canola, also called rapeseed, regularly gets acclaim as a “heart-solid” because of its omega-3 substance.
But should we be cooking with Canola?
Firstly, here is what one tablespoon of this oil offers;
|Saturated Fat||1.0 g|
|Monounsaturated Fat||8.9 g|
|Polyunsaturated Fat||3.9 g|
|Omega-3 Fatty Acids||1279 mg|
|Omega-6 Fatty Acids||2610 mg|
- Saturated Fat:2%
- Monounsaturated Fat:5%
- Polyunsaturated Fat:3%
- Omega-6 to 3: 2: 1
- Canola oil has a much better omega-6 to omega-3 ratio than most other vegetable oils.
- Cheap price.
- Most commercially available Canola oil undergoes a solvent extraction process. This oil has been ultra-processed and it has little nutritional value.
- Displays poor oxidative stability and using the oil at a high heat generates large numbers of polar compounds. Additionally, trans fats form in Canola with exposure to heat.
