News of the study, presented in March at the American Heart Association’s EPI/NPAM 2013 Scientific Sessions in New Orleans, caught the attention of Associated Press, Reuters and Yahoo!

An extensive article in Food Navigator published March 28 characterized the research results – showing a 1.6 percent reduction in belly fat from consuming canola oil – as “actually quite impressive,” especially given that the trial was only four weeks long.
