Some Good Things About Canola Oil

Thursday, September 28, 2017

What kind of oil are you using in your kitchen? Is it still palm? Vegetable? Coconut oil? Not that I'm saying it's not good but for me, it's been a good experience cooking with Canola oil. It's got a lot of fatty acids that is essential in your diet, some of which are can't be made by your own body.

Canola actually contains Alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). It is an omega-3 fatty acid which protects you against heart disease by lowering bad cholesterol. It also contains Linoleic acids which is an omega-6 fatty acid, your body can't produce that naturally but this one has it. Aside from that, it helps you in nutritional gaps because it contains phytosterol. There are a lot of things that Canola Oil has to reduce the risk of coronary heart disease.

Canola Oil doesn't also hamper in the taste of your food, whether Chicken, Beef or Pork, it retains it's neutral taste and it doesn't smell too even in high temperatures. It can do well in frying, sauteing or even baking. A tea spoon of it everyday would reduce the risk of heart attacks, so if you're a health freak, this would do so good on your diet. Remember, cutting down on saturated fats helps cut your cholesterol levels so if you're out and doing grocery, pick up something good on the shelf like Golden Fiesta.  

I am, you should too.
