Canola oil

Canola oil

Most of the world's canola crop is genetically modified - therefore it is important to inquire with the manufacturer about how they source it. Canola is a genetically engineered plant developed in Canada from the Rapeseed Plant, which is part of the mustard family of plants. It is highly refined and made with an unnatural processing method that involves high heat, deodorization, and the toxic solvent hexane. Significant amounts of trans fats are formed during this process. Canola oil is extracted from rapeseeds that have been bred to contain less of some unfavorable substances.
