What is exactly Canola Oil?Canola oil is obtained by pressing canola seeds properly crushed and heated. It has a nice yellow color, is very greasy to the touch and has a strong and peculiar smell.
This oil, which used to be the main source of income in France, is only produced in small quantities today because of its difficult and uncertain cultivation, the small quantity of oil extracted and its taste, which is widely appreciated. It remains the main oilseed production in France. Research has made it possible to increase yields per hectare, to improve the finished product and to make it an oil of current consumption. This oil has nutritional qualities much lower than olive oil.
