Edible Oil

General Description:

 

Canola oil is the most common and widely known use of Canadian canola -- a versatile cooking oil with a light flavor and high smoke point, making it suitable for frying, sautéing, baking, and salad dressings 

 

It is also low in saturated fat and has a favorable fatty acid profile, including a high content of monounsaturated fats and omega-3 fatty acids, which are beneficial for heart health

Canola Overview

Canola vs Rapeseed:

Canola was derived from rapeseed cultivars, bred to remove two undesirable traits: glucosinolates and erucic acid.  The new plant was renamed "canola," a combination of "Canada" and "Oil"

 

By definition, canola must contain less than 30 micromoles of glucosinolates, and less than 2% of erucic acid  

Production Overview:

Canola is a versatile oilseed crop that is primarily grown for its high-quality oil and protein-rich meal.  Canada is the world's largest producer and exporter, and, due to favorable climatic and soil conditions -- adequate rainfall, suitable temperatures, and fertile soils -- also produces the world's highest quality

Varieties:

Canadian farmers predominantly grow canola varieties that have been engineered to be herbicide-tolerant, and specifically designed to resist the herbicide glyphosate. The herbicide-tolerant trait allows for effective weed control and higher crop yields

Oil & Meal Production:

Canola seeds are processed to obtain canola oil and meal. After harvest, canola seeds are crushed to extract oil, which is refined for various food and industrial applications. The remaining meal is used as a high-protein feed ingredient for livestock, particularly in the dairy and poultry industries

Research & Development:

Canada supports canola production through ongoing research and development focused on breeding programs to develop improved canola varieties with enhanced agronomic traits, disease resistance, and oil quality

 

Research is also focused on agronomic practices, pest management, and sustainable production techniques to optimize yields and minimize environmental impact

Quality Assurance

Canada has a reputation to uphold when it comes to canola -- after all, it is named after us.  It is no surprise that we go to great lengths to maintain our reputation for quality, consistency, variety, and reliability

The Canadian Grain Commission (CGC) establishes and enforces grading standards, defining the criteria for factors such as moisture content, damaged seeds, foreign material, oil content, and chlorophyll levels. The grading system provides a consistent and standardized method to assess the quality of canola

Canola samples are collected from producers, elevators, and processing facilities for quality testing, ensuring that all canola meets quality specifications and providing information for grading and pricing

Tracked from the farm to processing facilities and throughout the supply chain, documentation and record-keeping systems help maintain traceability, ensuring that the canola can be traced back to its origin, and enhancing transparency, accountability, and food safety
