Canola Oil Was Never Intended To Be Eaten

 

On Food Nation Radio Network, we uncovered some information from the EPA that is very disturbing. Canola Oil Was Never Intended To Be Eaten By People Listen to the history of Canola Oil. There is more background on our site about the health effects from consuming this machine lubricant.

 

The use of this oil began in wartime for an entirely different use. Several studies show some of the possible effects of consuming this oil as a food ingredient. People use this oil because it’s supposed to be heart-healthy. There is definitely some irony at work here, because it may have the exact opposite effect. You can judge for yourself from the audio below.

A leading petrol site says, “The commercial oil is refined by using hexane, acid and water precipitation. It is deodorized with the help of steam distillation and bleached with the help of clay. Only about 43 percent of the seed is oil and rest is the rapeseed used in animal feeds. It is estimated that 23 kilograms of rapeseed makes around 10 liters of Canola Oil.”

In our opinion, there is no such thing as organic canola oil under the USDA definition and it should not be labeled as such. Lots of substances are “organic”, but would never receive a USDA organic label. Think about it. Canola Oil Was Never Intended To Be Eaten :
