Why Use Canola Oil in Your Desserts?

- Its smoke point —the temperature at which it begins to smoke and degrade— is one of the highest of all cooking oils at 468 °F (242 °C).
- Canola oil is a heart-smart choice. It has the least saturated fat of the common dietary fats and is free of trans fat. Canola oil also has the most plant based omega-3 fat of any common culinary oil and is a good source of vitamin E.
