  • What Canola Oil Is Actually Made Of ?

    17/07/26

    Canola oil is a popular option for a healthy, affordable vegetable oil, but what is it really? We know that it comes from a beautiful yellow flower. (Well, maybe you didn’t know that.) Fields of this flowering plant makes for an impressive sight. Just look:

    The oil is made from tiny, tiny seeds.

    To make canola oil, we need the seeds. But we first have to wait for the flowers to die. Once the flowers have been pollinated, the petals drop and pods form.Inside the pods are tiny seeds. There are roughly 20-30 seeds per pod. Each tiny seedcontains 42-43 percent canola oil, which makes it a really efficient crop. 

    Canola feeds our livestock.

    Once the seed is pressed for oil, the remaining meal is used for animal feed. In fact, the U.S. imports over 50 percent of Canada’s high-protein canola meal for livestock.

    It’s a healthy choice.

    It is low in trans fat and high in healthier unsaturated fats. Eating Well often uses this oil in its recipes because it’s the “richest cooking-oil source of alpha-linolenic acid, an omega-3 fat that has been linked to heart health.”
