I feel good for my age, am active and our home health nurse, which comes once a year is amazed at how few meds we take, So, I guess not all of us have problems because we do eat some heavy fats once in awhile. I also drink a couple of glasses of wine a day, sometimes 3 and my liver is fine. Has anyone ever told you: everything in moderation. We rarely eat fast foods and we eat very few processed food. Yet, I am not saying "never"
Define "glass".

It's all in what you are cooking. If you are making pie crust or biscuits, use lard. If you are popping popcorn, use coconut oil. If you are frying eggs or potatoes, use bacon grease. If you are baking cookies, use butter. For Asian cooking, sesame oil has great flavor. For tempura, any vegetable oil, but I use canola.

If you really want to load your arteries, try a pepperoni pizza. Pepperoni is about 40% fat, the cheese is about 80% fat, and the crust is suspiciously brown.

You need to get updated on lard, butter and other previously villainized but since exculpated cooking ingredients.




Doesn't anyone else get an odd fishy aroma from heated canola oil? Stopped using it the first time we tried due to that.

I have seen Mustard Oil being used in Indian cuisine like Fish Curry or Pickles !!!
You will find it in every Indian grocery store. Of course, it will have "For external use only" printed on it, because FDA requires that label due to high percentage of erucic acid.

I won't even mention the GMO/pesticides used on these crops which is a whole other story.

If you don't need oil to fry, what do people use oil for -- to put on salads? I ask because my main reason to use oil is to sautee or fry vegetables or meats.

No its not, it only arises on cooking. Its got nothing to do with being rancid. Its heat degradation products - I see now there is quite a lot of information on it - and only some people can smell it.


The GMO nonsense is irrelevant. Every crop you eat is genetically modified compared to the crop 2,000 years ago. Canola oil comes from cultivars selected and crossbred (ie a gene change selected for and intervened upon by the hand of man) by University of Manitoba horticultural scientists in the 70s.


You are correct there is no such thing as Canola plant - its a North American name for oil from particular rapeseed plants coined from CANadian Oil Low Acid.

Thanks....now I see why my MD asked me to stop using it.
She recommended butter...

Whatever, the GMO is not nonsense. I couldn't care less about the GMO, I DO care about herbicides, specifically glyphosate and it IS irrelevant to me because I don't use it anyway. You can go ahead and eat it all you want, nobody is stopping you.

As for how healthy canola oil is, take a look at the 2nd video I linked to if you care to. You will see for yourself how it's made or even better this article. They use a chemical solvent called Hexane. By the way, corn and vegetable oils are made using a similar process.

How Canola Oil is Made

Quote:
Overview of how Canola Oil is made:
--Once the rapeseed is collected, magnetized rods attempt to remove any foreign metal that may have been introduced into the collection of seed.
--Afterwards, a 60+ minute wash of a hexane solvent.
--After the hexane wash is complete, a wash of sodium hydroxide is performed.
--The “natural” waxes are collected and used to aid in the creation of vegetable shortening.
--Bleach is then introduced to lighten the cloudy color of the processed oil.
--Steam injection is then applied to remove the bitter smell
Mmmm doesn't that sound appetizing?
