You've probably heard the many benefits of eating fish regularly for a healthy dose of omega-3 fats, but what about the nutritional benefits of canola oil?

Canola oil is great for brain and heart health. Its high content of monounsaturated fats (or MUFAs) can help reduce the risk of heart disease. You can feel good about using canola oil in almost any recipe!
