The Nutritional Benefits of Canola Oil

Canola oil, a healthy fat, is often used as a replacement for less healthy oils, therefore, keeping it in high demand. Because of its health benefits, ease of use, and marketability, the nutritional chemical supplier Bell Chem wants its customers to better understand this marvelous oil. First created in Canada (“Can”-ada + “ola”-oil), canola oil was developed from deriving traits from the rapeseed and applying them to the canola plant. The oil produced from this cross contains no trans-fat or cholesterol, has the lowest amount of saturated fat on the market, and may have favorable health benefits as opposed to the negative effects of many other cooking oils.

  • Canola oil increases vitamin absorption by acting as a fat-soluble carrier. These vitamins can include A, D, E, and K.

  • Canola oil contains no proteins. Proteins are often responsible for causing allergic reactions, and the lack of proteins means the body’s immune system will not react negatively to the use of canola oil.

  • Canola oil has a long shelf life. Stored at room temperature, canola oil can linger on the shelf for approximately one year.

  • Canola oil is high in monounsaturated fat, which helps lower LDL cholesterol and control fluctuating blood glucose levels. The omega-3 fatty acids in canola oil, which contain the most plant-based omega-3 fatty acids on the market, are good for the heart.

  • Isothiocyanates, compounds found in canola, reportedly help prevent some forms of cancer.

  • Research has shown that canola oil can reduce belly fat and may improve metabolic syndrome symptoms that increase heart disease, diabetes, and stroke.

Because of these health benefits, canola oil is often the preferred choice. Order this nutritional chemical and many more from Bell Chem, your nutritional chemical supplier.
