I love rice bran oil -- heart healthy, (oryzanol) maintains its antioxidant virtues even at high temperatures. Can be used at high temperatures for stir fry , tempura . Another one I use is virgin sesame oil a pale , slightly nutty taste oil with some interesting health benefits , not the dark brown roasted sesame oil which is strong in taste and good for a top dressing flavour in Asian dishes.
High oleic sunflower seed , high oleic safflower seed peanut oil , and grape seed oil are good at high temperatures (smoke point is high) .
You don't want to put food to too high a temperature and bring out acrylamides in starchy foods such as potatoes , (french fries) .
I have all these oils , including several types of coconut oil , red palm oil, plus others -- feeling like an oil baroness .

Keep using canola oil....it is good for our business!!!
Over here canola oil is at least half the cost of olive oil.....some simply could not afford to use olive oil over canola/vegetable oil.
Jocoyn - yes, it is all a big fir-fee regarding GM not contaminating non GM crops or "escaping" into the environment. You only have to look at the railway tracks lined with canola plants to know that it does not stay put in transit.
Over here a farmer can not just put a paddock of GM in easily.....they must jump through many hoops including getting past the local councils etc, apply for a permit which also has to be discussed with neighbours etc. If you don't want it next to your farm you can say no......not sure how long it will stay like this for.....sometimes all our silly regulations on everything over here serve a good purpose.

|jocoyn||..A lot of decent foods contain canola oil ....... several decent foods contain the clay.....if the clay is mined from a bad area and is not food quality that can be toxic. It is sold as an organic supplement. Check amazon. Needs to be tested to be dioxin free.|

Tony has never done good with any of the products with the clay in it. When I research it originally one of the ingredients in the clay was toxic. That was 3 years ago and I can't begin to remember. But then again Nature's Variety contains Canola oil...

Don't know; have not deep fried anything for years. We just bake them in the oven - OR - slice in wedges and roast on the grill. Roasted potato wedges go nice with burgers.
More people extol the virtues of canola than abhor it. Who is to say who is right? Only time will tell...

|Jag||I find this very interesting! I have very high cholesterol from Graves disease, so I've been using Canola oil since. I never knew it was bad for you. What would you put in a fryer then? I don't use it often, but sometimes at the camper I want fries with my burger and I don't use the oven because of my parrots in the camper.|

No problem for me.
You mentioned you don't like montmorillonite clay. Why not?

This is a little bit new-agey (the article) but explains some of the uses
Immune system, binder, absorbing toxins, source of minerals, etc. and we know it is good at sequestering toxins.
