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)

soy free veganaise is made with expeller pressed, high oleic safflower oil. low in PUFA and high in oleic acid(o9). I just add my own egg yolks before I use it, making it real mayonaise.

If this has already been asked, sorry! I couldn't find it anywhere. Anyway.. I have been wondering for some time now why vegetable oil seems to be shunned in this community, along with canola oil. I have often seen them referred to as... (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)

Just got done with this book and feel like I wasted my money. I was floored by the continual demonization of saturated fats, coupled with what seemed like an embrace of PUFA along with recomendations promoting the use of canola oil and various... (more)

I don't think that the Paleo Diet for Athletes has been updated since Cordain changed his stances on Canola, Diet Colas, and Saturated Fat. However, I find until he updates PDFA, that Robb Wolfe's "Paleo Solution" is a bit more geared toward the... (more)

Hello Everyone, I live in NYC and started working at a new restaurant, which I am not realizing after my first two (free staff) meals there, is definitely not the healthiest. It is a cuban style Tapas place, which has lots and lots of GREAT meat... (more)

Could it be that the meats are marinated in or topped with some gluten-containing sauce that's causing your stomach pains? Perhaps asking the cooks to keep your food free of the vegetable oils won't keep you free of discomfort if that's the case.... (more)

Canola oil is terrible. It is not real food, and should not be consumed by humans. The main problems with canola oil are: Canola oil is banned by the FDA in infant formula because it was shown in some animal studies to retard growth, and it's... (more)

No it is not. Both of those oils contain an inordinate amount of omega 6 linoleic acid which causes inflammation, oxidative stress, interferes with thyroid signaling, decreases testosterone, and is in many cases a carcinogen. The lower the omega 6... (more)

I would soak some in water overnight; in the morning I would spread them out on a towel (one layer thick) and let them air dry. When they are dried, if they don't feel oily and they taste OKAY, I would give the others the same treatment. I... (more)

I've read in several sources that even "cold pressed" canola is rancid because the pressing process generates its own heat due to the friction of pressing. It then has to be bleached and refined to get rid of the rancid smell. The fact that it's... (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)

IMO, just stay away from fake foods. If you have to add something to a food to make it ''good'' then it means that they are probably really bad in the first place. Butter from healthy cows has omega 3 too. Plus, Olive oil taste better than canola. (more)
