Canola oil is a versatile cooking oil because it withstands high temperatures well. It as a mild flavor so it is an appropriate choice for almost any type of cooking, baking or in dressings and sauces.

Canola oil was developed in Canada by breeding rapeseed plants that produced much lower levels of erucic acid typically found in rapeseed. Erucic acid is toxic in large amounts. Unfortunately some people misunderstand the difference between canola and rapeseed and there have been email hoaxes and rumors claiming that consuming canola oil is dangerous. But don't worry, these rumors are false.

Kindly check:

Canola oil contains monounsaturated fatty acids, similar to olive oil, and omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids like the fats found in flax seed oil. Eating a diet rich in monounsaturated and omega-3 fatty acids may help reduce your risk for cardiovascular disease and will help to reduce inflammation.

Canola oil also has less of the omega-6 fatty acids found in most vegetable oils such as sunflower and corn oil. While we need some omega-6 fats, the typical western diet has much more than we need. Many experts believe that too little omega-3 fat combined with too much omega-6 fat intake contributes to pro-inflammatory conditions for the body
The FDA allows food companies to make a qualified claim that canola oil is heart-healthy on product labels.
