"No Oil is Lower in Saturated Fat Than Canola"
Canola oil is also widely known as rapeseed oil. Canola oil is an excellent source of Alpha-Linolenic Acid (ALA), which is an n-3 fatty acid whose consumption is linked to a decrease in cardiac mortality of heart disease patients, likely due to its effects on ventricular fibrillation and platelet aggregation. One tablespoon of canola oil contains 1.3g of ALA. Dietary surveys in the U.S. indicate that average adult intakes for ALA range from 1.2-1.6 g/day for men and from 0.9-1.1 g/day for women
