So, what is canola?

Canola is a versatile and popular food ingredient that is derived from the rapeseed plant. It is a type of oil that is high in monounsaturated fats and low in saturated fats, making it a healthier alternative to other cooking oils. Canola oil has a light and neutral flavor, making it an ideal ingredient for a wide range of dishes, including baking, frying, and salad dressings. It is also rich in essential fatty acids and antioxidants, which are important for maintaining good health. Canola is a staple ingredient in many kitchens around the world, and it is prized for its versatility, health benefits, and delicious flavor.
