Canola Oil is Healthy
Dietary fat, in moderation, is needed to provide energy and help absorb fat-soluble vitamins. Increasingly, it has become apparent that the type of fat in the diet is important. Certain fats such as omega-3 and omega-6 fats are essential for good nutrition and must be consumed as part of a healthy diet.
Canola oil provides more of the healthy fats than any other common cooking and salad oil. In fact, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration authorized a qualified health claim for canola oil based on its unsaturated fat content. With its low saturated fat level, excellent balance of polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats, and its versatility and light taste, canola oil has found an important place in the world's kitchens, food products and restaurants.
