the safest possible - coconut oil. SUPER high smoke point and is fully saturated so you won't get any oxidation issues. you should NEVER cook in anything that's not saturated, any monounsaturated or PUFA's are going to oxidize very easily and... (more)

http://www.marksdailyapple.com/healthy-oils/ http://www.marksdailyapple.com/dear-mark-canola-oil/ You can make coconut oil at home if you really needed to. But it's much easier to go to a store and buy it. And this is why health-conscious people... (more)

I use olive oil for most of my cooking. But for occasional frying corn oil has the highest smoke point and the least odor when frying. Canola oil has a bad smell when frying so I think it's the worst of the three.

Maybe you should let them know that if they got all the bad oils and seasonings out of their dishes, they would be overrun with paleo eaters. That menu looks pretty awesome.

How bad is canola oil? Most canola oil is genetically modified. Some is processed using hexane. But it is possible to obtain organic (not genetically modified) canola that is made using only pressure and mild heat (around 100 degrees F which is... (more)

We produce Expeller-Pressed canola oil. We gravity separate the the oil after pressing. The finished oil is very yellow. If you put it on a white plate (for dipping), it will look fluorescent yellow. The oil in a clear bottle will be dark like... (more)

Flax, canola, and friends have lots of ALA that doesn't get converted to DHA/EPA. What if anything does it get converted to, and is the end product good, bad, or neutral? (P.S. I'm not looking for "PUFA gets oxidized!!!")

AKAIK, PUFAs are used by the body mainly (i) to make signaling molecules, (ii) as part of cell membranes, and (iii) as food. Short-chain (i.e., ALA and LA) PUFAs can be used for (ii) and (iii) or they can be converted into long-chain PUFAs to... (more)

I have always been a firm believer that as canola oil is a frankenfood, it should certainly be avoided. The heat involved in the processing of the oil is usually blamed for the unhealthfulness of the end product - omega 3 fats are rancid, etc.... (more)

Funny reading that some folks think pressing oil out of seeds is an industrial abomination while eating industrial grown and slaughtered and manufactured butter/meat. You guys are TOO MUCH! Its is truly a hoot coming here.
