In a word, fructose. Fructose signals our bodies to pack on stores for the winter. Fructose is available in large amounts only at the end of summer, when ripe fruits are abundant. So we pack on the fat to be able to survive the lean times. (more)

Probably the best way would be to get a dehydrator and make your own using coconut oil. I love the (expensive) multi-coloured ones with plantains and assorted veggies. At least Canola is better than soy .
