When I think health food I think McDonalds.

But there chicken has no trans fat.

Oh great.

â??The switch to a healthier canola blend cooking oil means menu items such as the Filet-O-Fish and Chicken McNuggets contain 60 percent less saturated fat than they did six years ago,â??

Canola oil. WHAT THE FUCK IS A CANOLA? The reason shit like this exists is the reason half the tards out there are fat. It just gives the fleet of land whales a reason to feel better about munching on their battered processed simulated chicken meat now with 30 grams of fat instead of 40. Fuck sakes

Weight watchers must be getting a nice monetary kickback from this. I can only see this helping McDonald's profits while hurting the weight watcher image.


#6

Well, RAPEseed isn't the best name if you want marketability.


#7

Ba-da ba ba ba!


#8

Yeh, and rape seed is a brassica, meaning it comes from the same family as broccoli, cabbage, etc...

Health effects
Canola oil (or rapeseed oil) contains both omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids in a ratio of 2:1, although flax oil is higher in omega-3 fatty acid, as are other oils such as Chia (Salvia hispanica) oil. Canola oil's proponents claim that it is one of the most heart-healthy oils and has been reported to reduce cholesterol levels, lower serum tryglyceride levels, and keep platelets from sticking together. However, only very long chain omega-3 fatty acids have been shown to improve cholesterol levels, and these are absent from rapeseed oil, so these claims should be viewed with suspicion unless or until further evidence of their activity becomes apparent.
