Versatile Cooking Oil- Thanks to its minimal flavor, high smoke point, and smooth texture, canola oil is one of the most versatile cooking oils.
Low Saturated Fat- One 2011 study concludes that those who eat canola oil may have lower cholesterol levels.
Most is Genetically Modified- Although many food manufacturers deem GMO foods safe, concerns abound over their potential impact on the environment, public health, crop contamination, and more.
Contributes to Inflammation- Canola oil is (very) high in omega-6 polyunsaturated fats (PUFA). While we need some omega-6s in our diet, canola oil contains too much of this nutrient.
May Worsen Memory- Studies show that chronic exposure to a canola-rich diet resulted in harm to memory and increases in body weight.
