WHY THIS PRODUCT QUALIFIES FOR THE CANSA SEAL OF RECOGNITION

Blossom Canola has a low to high ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids. The low saturated fat – less than 10% (less than 10 grams per 100 grams margarine) are combined with the high omega-3 fatty acid content and low omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acid ratio as well as the less than 1% (one gram per 100 grams margarine) content of trans fats.

Analysis of peer-reviewed literature has informed CANSA that the good balance between omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids found within Canola oil could help to reduce the risk of cancer (1).
