What's the story with canola oil?  I've been told it is good for me and that it is bad for me, even though it is listed as a neutral ?? Can we use it or should I stick to olive oil?

Yes, by all means stick with olive oil, (especially the extra virgin oil) as it is listed as a beneficial. Light olive oil (that is, refined olive oil) is still OK but is used for frying etc. Briefly put, even the light stuff is superior to canola oil. Commercially produced canola oil is usually sold in a highly refined form and this has led to the claims that it is contributing to heart disease. Unrefined cold pressed canola is very strongly flavoured and tastes nothing like the refined stuff. The former works well in Indian curries but overpowers most other cuisines. Personally, I prefer the flavour of the olive oil.

I couldnīt agree more with EHīs reply.

It might be neutral for some bt( not Bīs)
BUT I wouldnīt call it a healthy product due to highly refined process.
- and the coldpressed just taste yuck imho ... it gets racid so fast that you need to buy small bottles, in dark glass kept cold alll the times...

Hallo!
I red in eat right for your type that canola oil is an avoid for O non.
What is the reason?
If I look into the chemical ingredients of canola oil I cannot see something different to Olive Oil. It is merely mono unsaturated fats and a good portion of poly unsaturated fats. Just the composition is different.
What makes me even more wondering is the fact that the relation between Omega 3 and Omega 6 fats in canola oil is pretty optimal 1 : 2.5
So I do not get the problem.
Of course I speak about cold manufactured organic non genetically manipulated canola oil.
Can anybody explain me this thing?

many greetings

most avoids may cause inflammation, but we re all individuals with our very unique issues.

Dr D has done the research, it is up to you to follow his advice, according to BT.

I see you are a nonnie as well.......

typebase has the most updated values, if you wanted to check on anything else.
How would you have known such an important trait, had it not been for EFYT?

If it is so bad why is it listed as a neutral for some, and not as an avoid?

because each bloodtype is different.
take meat for instance........
always try finding organic sources........and no it is not bad for all, just for some.

since there always is so much controversy on nutrition, I stick to what Dr D says, that makes life easier for me......call me lazy.

much like the coconut oil debate........be happy, if you re an O nonnie, it s ok!!
we can t win them all!!

I've read that canola oil is really rapeseed oil and does a lot of damage to muscle tissue.  Of course, I read that about 5 years ago.  After I read that, I switched over to using cold pressed olive oil.  As of the last couple of years I have been using canola (reluctingly) for my hubby's cookings, because he does not handle olive oil very well.  
Sometimes I will use it, for my own cookings, but not very much, or often.

I only ever use canola oil for homemade mayonnaise. I don't like the taste of olive oil mayo...

Please favor organic canola oil as rapeseed is a high gmo crop.

The only time we use canola oil is when we have our "bad" dinner every 4-6 weeks.  We have a treat of homemade chicken nugget, mozzarella sticks, onion rings and a few other things in the deep fryer.  I had "outlawed" these because the only oil I could use and afford in the fryer is canola oil.  I guess I can give in now and go back to the "bad" dinners every once in a while.  That will make my "big kid" happy.

Bingo, there's the reason (GMO) I steer away from Canola (unless I could be assured it's not GMO).

Some interesting reading on GMO is Seeds of Deception by Jeffrey Smith.  He has a newer book out as well, that I have not read yet but plan to.

Please, what does GMO mean?
And what is the difference between canola and rapeseed?
I find this all very confusing.
In the typebase it is stated that there is not any reported lectin so far.

GMO = Genetically Modified Organism
Quoted from Wikipedia - Rapeseed
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rapeseed
Rapeseed (Brassica napus), also known as Rape, Oilseed Rape, Rapa, Rapaseed and (one particular cultivar) Canola, is a bright yellow flowering member of the family Brassicaceae (mustard or cabbage family).

Quoted from Wikipedia - Canola
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canola
In agriculture, canola is a trademarked quality description of a group of cultivars of rapeseed variants from which low erucic acid rapeseed oil and low glucosinolate meal are obtained. Also known as "LEAR" oil (for Low Erucic Acid Rapeseed), Canola was initially bred in Canada by Keith Downey and Baldur Stefansson in the 1970s.
...
Canola was developed through conventional plant breeding from rapeseed, an oilseed plant with roots in ancient civilization. The word "rape" in rapeseed comes from the Latin word "rapum," meaning turnip. Turnip, rutabaga, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, mustard and many other vegetables are related to the two canola species commonly grown: Brassica napus and Brassica rapa. The negative associations with the word "rape" in North America resulted in the more marketing-friendly name "Canola", but also to distinguish it from regular rapeseed oil, which has much higher erucic acid content.
...
Canola, from Canadian Oil Low Acid.

As for the first part of your question, No you should not fry with Olive Oil.  Olive oil should not be subject to high heat.  I have always been taught not to let it reach a point where it smokes.  Best for you right out of the bottle or heated for only a short time on low heat.

It is *Extra virgin* olive oil that is best not used for really hot frying, however, you may fry with it at temperatures up to 180 C.  It's only a problem above 180C. Keep a thermometer handy. I love my potatoes fried in olive oil!

Hi Cathy,
I also came across a lot of material a few years ago about the harmful effects of canola oil on the heath of people and animals.  Because of this, I stopped using it long before I found out that it is avoid for my blood type.  I haven't researched it recently since I don't buy it anyway.  But if I found out that it was ok for my bloodtype, I would still feel a need to look into the safety of this plant.  This is a completely different concern than a blood type perspective.  Something may be fine from a blood type standpoint, but I might still choose to not eat it for other health reasons.  An example would be milk sensitivities or gluten intolerances.
