Adapted from @CarnivoreCure: The ways to extract oil from vegetables:⠀ 1) chemical solvents (hexane)⠀ 2) centrifuge and⠀ 3) expeller-pressed⠀ 🌱Canola oil is extracted from rapeseed plants that have been bred to have lower levels of toxic erucic acid.⠀ ⠀ ⚠️Rapeseed Oil causes heart damage in animal studies. While the new name of rapeseed is canola, it still contains trace amounts of erucic acid (up to 2% is considered safe).⠀ ⠀ ‼️In 1995, GMO was introduced to rapeseed and almost all canola crops in North America are GMO. Canola oil consumption has been linked to vitamin E deficiency and a shortened life span in studies. The process of deodorizing canola oil to make the oil palatable transforms Omega 3s into trans fats. ⠀ And FYI, these trans fats ARE NOT labeled. ⠀ 🚨Expeller pressed is when the plant seeds are crushed and heated. 65-70% of the oil is yielded. The remaining oil is pulled out using chemical solvents like hexane. Hexane is poisonous and manufacturers assure us that all hexane is removed. 👌🏼Sure. ⠀ ☝🏼While expeller IS better than hexane canola, the expeller pressing process can cause enough heat for the oil to go rancid. Some companies will cold press their oils (80-120°F) but the practice isn’t regulated in the US so I’d question the US cold-pressed labels. ☠️While I do commend Beyond Meat for using a better canola oil, it is still toxic. Canola oil is STILL sourced from a poisonous plant and the heating process causes the oils to become unstable and prone to oxidation. 🔥These free radicals then cause chronic low-grade inflammation in the body. And it is inflammation in the body that is the root of today’s modern diseases. 🃏Canola oil is also the jack of many trades. It is a pesticide as it smothers insects, industrial lubricants, and used as biofuel (all vegetable oils). It’s also used to make plastics, cosmetics, and printing inks. 🤯We consume this same oil. 💡Stay away from all vegetable oils. Use animal fats that are nutrient dense and in its natural form.
