Cargill Launches Hybrid High-Oleic Canola Oil

Cargill has launched the world’s lowest saturated fat hybrid high-oleic canola for commercial customers.

The oil, which is made from hybrid canola contains 4.5 percent saturated fat or less - 35 percent lower than other traditional canola oils on the market - while also having a long shelf life, superior taste, and high fry performance. The canola hybrid was developed using traditional breeding methods that targeted increased resistance to club root and black leg disease, and high yields.

After 10 years in development, deliveries of the new oil variety, which will be marketed under the Clear Valley brand name, will begin early this year. The timeline for the product is advantageous for Cargill, as the 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines issued by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Health and Human Services suggests the limiting of saturated fat in typical diets to less than 10 percent of daily calorie intake.
