Skip to comments.Ban on trans fats would be boon for canola growers

From Oregon to Oklahoma, farmers have started planting canola in earnest, rotating the yellow-flowered crop that could blossom into a replacement for artery-clogging trans fats found in myriad junk foods, such as cookies, cakes and pies.
The amount of canola being grown in the U.S. has increased dramatically in the last two decades or so, with 1.7 million acres planted in 2012. Some of it is growing in areas such as Oklahoma, which for generations has been dominated by wheat and cattle operations.

Canola oil is an artery clogger. I gave it up a year ago and my circulation began to improve within two months. Stick with coconut oil, olive oil and good old butter.
They now make light butter, about half the calories from fat.
A lot of our health issues are due to cholesterol diets. A simple switch to a type 2 diabetic diet will drop both Tris and LDL. US PAN SPRAYS more, I fry with it and a little light butter or olive oil. Most foods I bake, broil, crock pot, or grill.
When you stick me on a cholesterol diet, you eliminate the iodine the Master gland of your body the Thyroid needs to function right. Causes more muscle and joint pain. I notice it big time when the ENDO lowers my dose or the time I was off it for 2 weeks for a ENT test.
Canola causes inflammation and heart disease. Seed oil is always rancid and canola,is GMO. Bad news. Don’t consume it.
CORRECT, HE IS...
I’m curious to know what you guys think of lard, if it is homemade natural lard.
This site “Homesick Texan” seems to really be on top of flavors.
We’re big fans of lard, butter, coconut oil, and olive oil. We try to eat a clean diet without processed foods. I make our bread, tortillas, stocks and broths, etc. We feel great since making the switch.
Do you think that source is accurate about the the homemade Lard?
Looks about right.
I do not allow my dogs to eat food with canola.
Absolutely correct. If you must use oil, make it either olive or coconut.
Used veggie for centuries, switched to canola after reading a couple of good things then switched to olive
I'll never switch again
“Canola” is an invented word, for marketing purposes only. It’s rapeseed oil. And the stuff will kill you.
Lard, tallow, and butter is the way to go. You really don’t need anything else.
I use corn oil for baking and olive oil for other cooking.
Check the ingredients of your pet food, as well.
I switched from Taste Of The Wild recently because it’s in the dog food.
It’s very hard to find dog food without it.
I started eating healthy this past summer; and by healthy, I mean no GMOs, stuff with minimum pesticide and wherever possible I use sugar instead of corn syrup.
It has really made a difference. I will admit that non-GMO ketchup was very difficult to find, but I eventually found some. There are two positives here. One, the food actually has flavor, and two, it doesn’t give intestinal problems. The only negative is that it costs about 1/3 more.
I’m sure goose fat is very healthy.
