Canola Oil

I’m wondering how safe it is to use Canola Oil? I have seen it here in a few recipes but I have also read elsewhere that it can be genetically modified coming from the US and Canada.

Having said that, I would assume that it would be okay if it was certified organic or would there be any other reasons to avoid it?

Anne,

Canola oil is produced from genetically altered rapeseed.  Canola is a play on words – Can = Canadian, ola= oil company.

I don’t recommend this oil for cooking.  Try coconut or safflower oil instead.

All the best,

Thanks Dr. O, yes I had read that!

I saw some organic mayo that was made with organic canola oil so thought that might be okay since it would be GMO free. My family miss mayo :(

You might try making your own.  I use avocado oil.  Tastes great!

Dr. O-

I found “refined” avocado oil. Is that suggested or is it supposed to be cold/expeller pressed? If that even applies to avocado oil???
