If you see "vegetable oil" on the bottle, it's usually canola--the least expensive, lightest-colored, most flavorless oil they can get their hands on. (And in this case, "most flavorless" is a good thing; there are times you don't want to taste the oil, like if you're making brownies.) Canola oil …is pressed from tiny canola seeds produced by beautiful yellow flowering plants of the Brassica family. It can be used in any recipe calling for vegetable oil. Cabbages and cauliflower are also part of the same botanical family! Canola was bred naturally from its parent rapeseed in the early 1970s. Canola, however, is NOT rapeseed - their nutritional profiles are very different. Along with olive oil, it is one of the most beneficial oils in its effect on good and bad cholesterol. Most of this info is from the Snopes article debunking the myth of Canola's toxicity. See the related link below. Olive oil is sometimes less costly and is definitely healthier for non-baking. Conola oil is better for baking than olive oil. ( Full Answer )
No it will not taste the same. Yes. Canola oil is a type of vegetable oil. Depending on what you're making, canola oil can be substituted for vegetable oil. Canola oil is also healthier than vegetable oil and has no noticable taste differences.
No, canola oil comes from rapeseeds. According to AgriAlternatives,The Online Innovation, and Technology Magazine for Farmers, "Bynature, these rapeseed oils, which have long been used to produceoils for industrial purposes, are... toxic to humans and otheranimals ". Rapeseed oil is poisonous to li…ving things and is anexcellent insect repellent. Ask for it at your nursery . Rapeis an oil that is used as a lubricant, fuel, soap and syntheticrubber base and as a illuminate for color pages in magazines. US and Canadian farmers grow genetically engineered rapeseed andmanufacturers use its oil ( canola) in thousands of processedfoods , with the blessings of Canadian and US governmentwatchdog agencies. The canola supporting websites say that canolais safe to use. They admit it was developed from the rapeseed, butinsist that through genetic engineering it is no longer rapeseed,but "canola" instead.

What is canola oil? We can't get it in the foreign country where I live, what is most healthy to substitute? Canola oil is an extract you get out of Canola seeds
Canola oil is a vegetable oil, pressed from the seeds of the"canola plant" - an engineered variant of the rape plant, which wasgiven a trademarked and much more marketable name in the 1970s.Like corn, peanut, safflower, sunflower, soybean, cottonseed, andsome other vegetable oils, canola has a neutr…al taste, so there'sreally nothing about it to strongly dislike. The various canola trade associations call it the "healthiest" oil,because it is lower in saturated fat than any other common oil, yethigh in unsaturated fats and free of cholesterol and trans fat. If you don't have it on hand, use any other neutral vegetable oil.If you can tolerate a bit of flavor in the finished product, youcould use an oil with a stronger taste (for example, olive oil). Besure the flavor matches what you're making, though ... olive oil isprobably fine for mayonnaise, but walnut oil may be a better choicein a cake (that said, I'm aware of cake recipes that specificallycall for olive oil; you're the cook, do whatever tastes good toyou).

Yes, you can substitute olive oil for vegetable oil, but not for all dishes. Olive oil has a strong taste. You would probably not want to use olive oil in most Indian cooking and definitely not in baking. Make sure that the taste of olive oil is compatible with your other ingredients.
Canola Actually, canola oil is typically extracted and refined using high heat, pressure, and petroleum solvents like hexane. Most canola oil undergoes a process of caustic refining, degumming, bleaching, and deoderization, all using high heat and questionable chemicals. You're much better …off using the far healthier, Cold-Pressed, Extra Virgin Olive Oil. All of the high heat processing can create trans-fats in the canola oil. And we all know how bad trans fats are. If you're looking for the healthiest fats, stick to Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Unrefined Coconut Oil and Grass-Fed Butter. All of those oils are not only "not bad for you" but they've actually got properties that make them "good for you" ______________________________________ Canola oil also contains tiny amounts of Erucic acid, a known carcinogen. Lear oil is another name for canola oil - it stands for low erucic acid rapeseed oil. Safflower oil is the healthiest of all oils, with the most oleic acid, (monounsaturated), and linoleic acid (poly unsaturated), for fatty acids. ( Full Answer )
I personally substitute vegetable oil with canola oil. It is low in saturated fat and healthier for you. Some canola oils also contain omega 3, which many doctors recommend to their patients. *** Any other oil, corn, canola , olive , can be used as a substitute.( Even melted margarine or butter wi…th limits) . Its mostly the flavor the fat brings to the dish or recipe that will be the difference. I'm over simplifying , but with out more info as to what you are preparing .. that's about it. Another good substitute for vegetable oil is apple sauce. It is healthier, but it does surprisingly taste very good and as it would with the oil. We didn't have any types of oil, and I found that apple sauce answer on yahoo answers. Cool! (: Enjoy... ( Full Answer )
no, it has a different consistency and it isn't the same type of ingredient, in other words it doesn't belong in the same family. Butter is dairy and canola and vegetable oil are not.
Yes canola oil is a type of cooking oil, there is a slight taste difference but your not likely to notice that in the final product.
To replace one cup of margarine one may use 1 cup shortening plus 1/2 teaspoon salt OR 1 cup butter OR 7/8 cup vegetable oil plus 1/2 teaspoon salt OR 7/8 cup lard plus 1/2 teaspoon salt.
Not really. Corn syrup is a sweetner, and it is produced after corn oil is removed from the corn. Corn or vegetable oil is actually oil, and it is different from sugars.
Yes. The two can pretty much be used interchangeably. Smoke points will differ slightly and taste may vary a bit depending on what is being cooked, but for general cooking, oil is oil.
applesauce - really!. You can also use mayonaise.. You can also substitute the Oil with Sour Cream
It depends on what the oil was for. If it is a recipe, especially for baking, you can use butter as substitute for oil. It is not recommended to substitute butter to fry something because it tends to burn in a hot pan, you should use oil to fry. Yes is can! Just don't use as much oil as butter. B…utter is thicker than oil so don't make it too sloppy. ( Full Answer )
not for creaming sugar or for making a laminated dough. In general vegetable shortenings aren't that healthy and should be replaced by butter.
Yes, canola oil is a type of vegetable oil, and can be used as a substitute in every recipe calling for vegetable oil. yes; I've done that before with brownies, every thing turned out and tasted fine
You can use them interchangably, particularly canola oil. There may be a slight change in flavor, particularly when using olive oil.
Of course, the result might not be the same however with concerns to the texture
Your best guess is to subsiitute in another form of an oil, like canola oil or corn oil, for example.
If you're deep frying, no- olive oil burns at a lower temp than canola. If you're pan-frying you could, but keep in mind that olive oil will impart flavor that is likely undesirable for your shrimp cakes.
No, because olive oil is too delicate to be used at high temperatures for frying.
It's oil made from a certain rapeseed and was first cultivated for consumption in Canada. It has a lower erucic acid than traditional rapeseed oils. Canola stands for CANandian Oil Low Acid.
Any cooking oils can be substituted for Canola Oil (Canada Oil). Canola is originally a substitute for motor oil then refined in later years for use as a food oil, substituting for corn oil, sunflower oil, soybean oil, peanut oil...etc.. Peanut, and grape seed oils are good for frying with higher sm…oke points than most other oils. Olive oil, especially EVOO is the healthiest oil to use when discussing cholesterol and triglycerides, and soybean (vegetable) oil is a close second. ( Full Answer )
Most oils used for cooking are somewhat interchangeable. In most cases you could substitute canola oil for peanut oil. You could also use olive oil or grapeseed oil in some foods. Canola oil has most of the same properties as peanut oil, but it does take longer to cook certain foods in canola oil. …Also keep in mind that peanut oil, grapeseed oil, and olive oil all have slight flavors that could alter the taste of the dish.

The best is pure canola oil. That's if you want good tasting food. so the best is pure canola oil.
No, it is the oil extracted from the seed of a weed known as rape. Rapeseed oil was originally extracted for use as a motor oil. The oil was later processed to remove most of the erucic acid (a known carcinogen) in the oil. This made it acceptable to the Canadian Authorities as a food oil. It has ne…ver been tested by the US FDA, but accepted as safe. ( Full Answer )
You can try canola oil, instead of vegetable oil. That would probably be your best bet.
Yes it will work the same in most recipes. The only problem is thatolive oil has more taste than canola oil, and the taste might beobjectionable in some recipes.
Any neutral-tasting oil can be substituted; canola oil, soybean oil, corn oil, etc. If you want a richer taste (and more saturated fat), you can try clarified butter (ghee), depending on the dish.
Yes, it is a heart healthy oil. Any oil is going to produce the same product. Flavor may change a very little bit with some olive oils, but nothing you will probably notice.
Canola oil is vegetable oil, just a specific kind. It is the healthiest type to use right below or beside olive oil.
Yes. Canola (rapeseed) oil has slightly different characteristics than vegetable (soybean) oil but not considerably so. Rapeseed oil is higher in monounsaturated fats than soybean oil, a potential health benefit but it also contains tiny amounts of erucic acid (a known carcinogen). As far as cooking… uses go they are almost exactly the same. ( Full Answer )
Totally Olive oil. 1.An olive is a vegetables 2.Cooks say it's more healthier 3.less fat 4.Pure and more flavorfull 5.Also can eat not only in cooked recipes A different answer: Olive oil has the same amount of fat and calories as other oils.

Yes, applesauce is a healthy substitute for oil whenever you are baking. Just be sure to use an unsweetened applesauce.
I've never had a problem with this. Assuming your not a baking expert, you probably won't notice any big difference in the finished product.
vegetable oil has a higher smoke point than olive oil but olive oil has better flavor. If you're frying for a significant amount of time use vege oil, if frying for a short amt of time you can use olive. If you're in the middle you can blend olive and vege to heighten your smoke point so the olive w…on't burn and still get the flavor ( Full Answer )
You don't really need oil to make pasta, you just need boiling water, with maybe some salt added if you prefer it that way. If you need oil for a sauce, you theoretically use canola in place of olive oil, but taste wise and health wise you wouldn't want to. A good quality extra virgin olive oil tast…es way better than any canola ever could, and since canola has to be heated to be extracted, it already has formed carcinogens before you even bring it home from the store, whereas a cold pressed extra virgin olive oil hasn't been heated higher than usually 96 degrees and therefore it has little or no carcinogens until you start heating it, therefore is you are careful you have a longer time before it becomes dangerous for health. Also, oils should always be purchased in a glass bottle. Plastic bottles are not only bad for health, but also have a very negative effect on the pure taste of the oil.

Yes, you can substitute any oil for another oil however it does change the taste a little of what ever you are making.
Well, Canola oil is vegetable oil, but it will work just fine for the cake.
No not at all. if you are making the betty croker cakes, cookies or muffins , it does not matter at all which kind you use. I always use just the oil I have when im baking cupcakes for birthdays and events...
Canola oil can be used as it is a type of vegetable oil from a specific plant source.
Canola (canada oil) Oil is processed from the seed of the rape weed. Originally it was used as a synthetic motor oil. "Raw" rapeseed oil is high in erucic acid, a known carcinogen, and must be processesd to reduce the erucic acid content. This cooking oil was originally marketed as Lear Oil, low-Eru…cic Acid Rapeseed Oil, but later was named Canola oil when marketed to the United States. One of the best selling oils in the US at the time was Mazola Corn oil. So Can(ada) (Maz)ola became the marketing brand. ( Full Answer )

depends what you want it to turn out like. you can put anything in anything but no saying it would taste good. hope i helped :)
Yes, (it IS vegetable oil). However, like with olive oil there are cold pressed varieties, where the flavor of the oil would be too strong for using in a cake. For this reason you would need to use a hot pressed (cheaper/mlder) variety of Canola oil for a cake.
Canola oil is much higher in Omega-3-fatty acids than vegetable oil. Omega-3-fatty acids are essential for cardiac health. It is also lower than vegetable oil in Omega-6-fatty acids, which are linked to cardiac health problems. In addition, canola oil is very versatile and can be used for making …salad dressing as well as frying. ( Full Answer )
For 2 sticks of butter, it is best to use 16tbsp of oil. Almost anyoil will work, and the basic rule of measurement is that for every1/4 cup butter, you will need 2tbsp oil.
Sometimes you can use oil for butter, but a lot of the time you can't. 2 sticks is a fair amount and oil is going to change the consistency of almost any finished product . If the butter is to be melted, tablespoon for tablespoon. 16 in two sticks means 16 of oil. If it is for cookies or some sort o…f dough, using oil is going to cause them to spread a lot more than with butter. I have used oil to make biscuits and I can live with them. Fine fresh, but they tend to be a bit dry if rewarmed. ( Full Answer )
It depends on the recipe. If the recipe requires a large proportion of vegetable oil and you're hoping to substitute it with coconut oil it is not a good idea since coconut oil has a distinctive taste which will overpower the whole dish. Generally, it is a good idea to substitute vegetable oil with …something like canola oil since it has no taste rather than coconut oil. ( Full Answer )
