Canola oil: made from the rapeseed oil, which contains high amounts of erucic acid (monounsaturated omega-9 fatty acid) . Produced by heating the rapeseed and processed with a petroleum solvent to extract the oil after which it is heated and treated with an acid to remove any solids (wax) that may be left over. Next it is treated with chemicals to separate the different oils and finally treated with chemicals to deodorized the smelly substance in order to be eaten. Lastly, if it is to be made into a shortening or margarine it undergoes a process called hydrogenation to make it solid in cold temps.
