Baking Expert Puts Health in the Holidays With Canola Oil
Date:11/20/2008

WINNIPEG, Manitoba, Nov. 20 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Indulging with less guilt is easy this holiday season. Simply substitute canola oil for other oils or solid fat in recipes to replace "naughty" saturated fat with "nice" unsaturated fat. This especially applies to baking, which results in many holiday treats.

Use canola oil in recipes that call for oil or solid fat in baked goods like breads, loaves and muffins, says Shirley Corriher, author of the new BakeWise cookbook and winner of the James Beard Award for Excellence. Canola oil has the least amount of saturated fat of any common cooking oil and is free of trans fat and cholesterol.

When substituting canola oil for other oils or solid fat, you will reduce the saturated fat content of baked goods. You will also reduce the total amount of fat by up to 25 percent and eliminate trans fat and cholesterol when using canola oil instead of butter or lard.

                    Solid Fat (melted)       Canola Oil
                       1 cup                  3/4 cup
                     3/4 cup                  2/3 cup
                     1/2 cup                  1/3 cup
                     1/2 cup                    3 Tbsp

"Canola oil not only makes baked goods healthier, it makes them moister and more tender," Corriher says. "I use canola oil in almost all of my muffin and cake recipes."

"Oil makes cakes more tender by preventing gluten formation in the flour," she explains. "Oil does this better than solid fats. I prefer canola oil because of its healthy fats, light texture and mild flavor."

In addition to being the only common cooking oil that can claim it is low in saturated fat, canola oil is a good source of omega-3 fat and vitamin E. Its neutral taste allows it to be used in a wide variet
