Testing Canola oil

Recommended Posts

Accidently exposed to canola oil, gluten and soybean at hubbies birthday dinner out - fairly severe digestive distress. Took an extra day, 3 instead of 2, to calm my gut!  How do u test Canola oil separately without buying a bottle of canola?

Hi there! Personally, I tend to leave canola oil out of my diet as much as possible. It is known to be an inflammatory oil, so there may not be a real reason to reintroduce it! I don't worry about being exposed to it in restaurants since that is not a large part of my diet. However, if you did want to test it through reintroduction, your best bet is to buy a bottle or borrow some from a friend perhaps.

Thanks Grace A. I was exposed at a restaurant after calling ahead to confirm I could be whole 30 compliant there. My digestive distress was fairly severe and came on fast so I am thinking I need to test it out. Canola seems to have a high prevalence for use in restaurants as the healthy option oil (clearly Canadian researches that invented the process did an outstanding marketing job).
