All fats are bad or are they?
Most people assume that all fats are the same and all fats are bad for health. This is not true. Some fats are important for maintaining good health. Studies suggest unsaturated fats (the good fats) may even help lowering Low Density Lipoprotein (LDL) bad cholesterol, when eaten as part of a low saturated fat diet. Beware of high levels of saturated fats, trans fats and dietary cholesterol (bad fats) in some cooking oils and shortenings, which can raise blood cholesterol.
EVA Canola Oil is valued for its healthy fatty acid profile, being rich in monounsaturated fat and the lowest in saturated fat among any consumer vegetable oils. When consumed regularly, it decreases total cholesterol and LDL-cholesterol levels without affecting High Density Lipoprotein (HDL) good cholesterol levels.
The protective benefits of canola oil arise from three key nutrients – oleic acid, alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) and vitamin E – that help protect blood vessels against narrowing and blockages, which may lead to development of heart disease.
