Comments:   Canola is not the name of a natural plant but a madeup word, from the words " Canada" and " oil" . Canola is a genetically engineered plant developed in Canada from the Rapeseed Plant, which is part of the mustard family of plants.

Comments:   Dear All, It is not the same as rapeseed.Canola is its own plant species, different from rapeseed.Although they look similar, canola and rapeseed plants are very different.Canola, along with cabbage, broccoli and cauliflower, is part of the genus Brassica, which belongs to the mustard family of plants. Canola oil is considered one of the most heart healthy oil as it has the highest ratio of unsaturated to saturated fats. Please speak to your doctor, cietician or nutritionist. Canola oil, doesn´ t have an Indian name because it is imported from Canada. Scientists used traditional plant breeding to eliminate the undesirable components of rapeseed, namely erucic acid and glucosinolates.Unwanted traits in rapeseed were bred out through traditional crossbreeding to produce canola in the late 1950s and 1960s. In fact, modern crop biotechnology wasn´ t even invented at that time.
