Canola Oil – AKA Rapeseed Oil
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.
“Canola” oil has impacted my life in a negative way for many many years. Starting my long enduring health journey about 3 years ago I have learned so many things. But only about a month ago i finally realized what was still keeping me from feeling great and causing all of these terrible symptoms. It was canola oil. My scalp and skin was a disaster. I had brain fog, and was ALWAYS tired. I could not perform. I am in college and this ruined my athletic career and has really put a huge dent into my academic achievements. Canola oil is in everything because it is cheap to grow, harvest, and process. I feel very very very strongly about the subject of “canola” oil because of the impact it has had on my life …
You all are so right, I have been the organic business for over forty years in both store keeping for 7years then 36 years of organic farming and now back to store,keeping for 5 years and counting and I am very healthy and now I am 71 years old an am appalled what is going on in the commercial food world. If I can help you folks I will and it’s time to blow the whistle, my own son even thinks that canola oil is okay and he is 28 years old, enough said I have to get back to my Organic Market this morning but keep up the good work and I will blow the whistle. Thank you for your work and I will look at your organization tonight. David Ronniger ( you can Google my name and see who I am )
It’s so astonishing! I thought canola oil is a healthy oil because I trusted FDA. I have been having dishes made with canola oil for a long time…It’s about since I was in my high school. Now I always feel tired and am easy to catch a cold. OMG I can’t believe that! I will stop eating it for a while.
This is I’ll informed rubbish. Sheep in Europe developed scrapie because they were being fed animal products. Scrapie is a disease causEd by prion proteins in the brain, similarly to Alzheimer’s disease. Pure canola, or rapeseed oil is better at high temperature i.e. frying, and remains unsaturated . Maybe you should look more carefully at the food processes that are legal in the US, rather than at the natural healthy plants that produce the oil. Cold pressed, it is one of the healthiest fats in nature.
Also, the title of your website is the nastiest kind of scaremongering.
Please do your homework before you try to frighten people for no reason.
Not mentioned is that Rapeseed oil AKA Canola oil is primarily used as a Synthetic engine Oil. During the refining cracking process adjusting one molecule in the Oil deems it “Fit for Human Consumption” This is a crock. Typically no employees in a Canola refining facility will use canola oil as a food item. The producers and the FDA may fool the public about no immediate harmful effects but you cannot fool the chemists.
But it does make the best synthetic engine oil.
