If you have ever eaten all natural peanut butter, you know that the peanut oil often separates from the rest of the peanut butter, and it doesn’t look very appetizing. This is why most peanut butter manufacturers replace the peanut oil with canola (or rapeseed) oil. Surprisingly, on the Jif jar, it actually lists “rapeseed oil” instead of Canola oil in the ingredients.
Think about it…there’s peanut oil, which comes from peanuts…soybean oil, which comes from soybeans…and then there’s canola oil, which comes from…a canola plant?? The funny thing is that there isn’t a canola plant. So where does canola oil come from?
Originally, Canola oil was created from a toxic plant known as a rapeseed plant. Europeans used it for animal feed until their animals started developing a brain eating disease called Scrapies. As a result, they banned its use in 1991.
Since then, Canada did some genetic engineering on the rape seed oil, so now they say it’s no longer dangerous. NOT TRUE!! Canada did animal testing with their so-called safe canola oil, and surprise, surprise, but it caused some dangerous effects. Rats used in testing grew fatty deposits on their hearts, kidneys, adrenal glands and thyroids. When the Canola oil was removed from their diet, the fatty deposits disappeared but left scar tissue.
Canola oil depresses our immune system, making us more susceptible to many sicknesses that our body would naturally fight off! So how did this dangerous oil get approved by the FDA for use in our foods?? It all boils down to money. The FDA is very corrupt and easily bribed. Canada paid the US FDA $50 million to have Canola oil added to the safe additive list.
Now our peanut butter and many of the other processed foods we eat contain Canola oil. Start buying all natural peanut butter; you can stir it up then store it in the refrigerator to keep it creamy. Check the labels before you buy, to make sure there isn’t any Canola oil. And don’t use it in the fryer! Use lard, it’s actually less fattening.
