FDA OKs Cautious Canola Health Labeling

January 2007
Tufts University Health & Nutrition Letter;Jan2007, Vol. 24 Issue 11, p6
The article looks at how the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved a petition filed by the U.S. Canola Oil Association (USCA) for a claim that substituting canola for products high in saturated fat, such as butter, can promote heart health. The USCA states that canola oil is lower in saturated fat than any common edible oil and that it contains the highest level of plant n-3 fatty acids.
