People are not only becoming more aware but also astutely conscious when it comes to a matter of health. As we know, our food choices and our health are intertwined in more ways than one -one cannot afford to take a chance anymore. Now, you think twice before picking anything from the supermarket-you read labels and try endless products before you form your opinion on what suits you the best. Take, for instance, something as simple as cooking oil has drawn so much traction in recent years for its impact on your heart and weight. Refined oil is no longer a preferred cooking option for many. More and more people are switching to healthier alternatives like canola oil. Indian Medical Association also recommends Canola oil to be healthy for everybody cooking.
For the uninitiated, canola oil is a vegetable oil retrieved from crushed canola seeds. Countless experts and nutritionist recommend vegetable oil for daily use. It is replete with good fats such as Mono-unsaturated fatty acids (MUFA) or Poly-unsaturated fatty acids (PUFA). Good fats are essential for energy and they also support cell growth. And not just that, they are good for keeping your heart healthy too. Enriched with a variety of essential vitamins and nutrients, canola oil could be one of the healthiest additions to your pantry-the high smoke point also makes it ideal for intense cooking. Hudson Canola oil is one of the brands that you could consider for reasons not just one but plenty:
1. Lowest Content of Saturated Fats
In the world of health and nutrition, there are broadly two kinds of fat - good and bad.
