Yeah, it's like when they started calling Niger Thistle seed (A bird seed) something else because farktards can't spell.

Canola used to be called rapeseed.

Can't understand why they would want to change that name.

A little bit? I thought the standard measure was 40 lbs of rape

Sandusky seed oil?

Penn State seed oil?

Same reason why they call hemp seed oil "dirty criminal oil".

just put a little accent mark above the first e in rapeseed and change the pronunciation.

Woah. Woah woah woah woah. Woah. That's a lot of rape for just one chicken. What are you, a Republican?

It's called rapeseed oil in the UK, I've never known anyone have a fit of the vapours over the name. Maybe I'm not mixing with a genteel enough crowd.

Since you're hanging out on Fark, that's pretty much a given. :)

JohnAnnArbor: Sandusky seed oil?

Penn State seed oil?


The latter wouldn't be another name for Canola oil, but instead something that you add to cover up some seemingly unpleasant flavor. Be careful though because it usually makes the whole recipe worse!

The rest (IIRC from yesterday) is a litany of awful truths about processed foods.

So is transfat worse than saturated fat?
 
2012-07-13 09:53:56 AM  
(canola oil is produced in Canada, which could be the reason for the "can" prefix, though its chemical composition may have more to do with it). .

Canada oil, low acid. CAN-ola because cola oil would be confusing, I bet.

it may be in a different aisle then the other oils, or likely on the very top shelf where short people can't see it

Woah there, buddy. Gotta be nubianrdly with your rapeseed oil.

Serious question for those more well-versed in the chemistry of cooking:

My wife and I were looking into the whole trans-fat thing, trying to make sense
out of it - the documentation that we found (I wish I had a citation handy) stated
that once you heat "non-trans-fat" oils to cooking temperature, game-off. They're
now magically trans-fat or worse, due to the molecular change. The only way
to not have that happen is to not heat it (i.e. salad dressing or something).

Is that correct, or did I misread/misremember?

(Asked because of the margarine and canola bits.)

I knew it when it was Latin for turnip, but the oil I use now is pretty obscure, you won't have heard of it.

Is that made of actual fruit, or is it a petroleum or coal-tar derivative? Or perhaps a mixture of both?

The name "Canola" is a combo of canada and 'ola' or 'oil'. Everyone knows that except, apparently, the writer of this article. Rapeseed oils has been used for many years as machinery oil, unfit for consumption. Lee Iaocca created the supposedly edible version. It's about as healthy as pennzoil 30w.

Hey, as long as we have this meme, i'm cool

/40 lb box of canola is somehow less humorous

Palm oil is generally considered a commercial product, not a grocery item. Probably because it is extremely hard to digest. Many people can't eat anything with palm oil (or palmitate) in it without getting an upset stomach. Which sucks, because they put it in damn near everything anymore. You can get it on Amazon for about $12 per quart.

They can also say "vagina" without wincing.
But to be fair, many of their leaders have one.

Canola Oil is a misnomer
Rapeseed Oil is accurate but doesn't have that ~pow~ marketers look for.

Rape Oil on the other hand is perfect, however we might need a 2 day cooling off period before you can buy it.

probably corn syrup that's been flavored

According to Wikipedia, Canola is only a specific cultivar of rape. Referring to all rape as canola is like referring to all animals as dogs.

Subby-

Please learn how apostrophes work. It's not that difficult. Really it isn't.
 
2012-07-13 10:03:39 AM  
Stupid articles are stupid. Canola does indeed exist. It is a cultivar of rapeseed that was developed at the University of Manitoba in 1970. The cultivar name was officially adopted in 1978 and stands for Canadian oil, low acid. Canola isn't just grown in Canada. Most of it is grown in the Western US.
