Canola is big business and with even bigger health benefits, as Nexera® canola is used to produce Omega-9 Canola Oil. Due to the unique fatty-acid profile and versatility of use, this canola oil has been proven to be a healthier oil solution that contains “heart-healthy” monounsaturated or Omega-9 fats and is void of dangerous trans fats.
With the recent Health Canada ban on trans fats, and as more and more food manufacturers and food service providers switch to the healthier Nexera Omega-9 Canola Oil, it is anticipated that Canadian canola growers may see an increase in canola demand. This shift will be good for profitability as well as the long term health of consumers.
