Cargill Introduces New Low Saturated Fat Canola OilThursday, January 18, 2018
Global agri service provider and trader Cargill launched a new high-oleic canola oil last month. The company claimed it had the lowest commercially available saturated fat content. Marketed under the Clear Valley brand, the oil was made from a hybrid canola that contained 4.5% or less of saturated fat, marking a reduction of 35% from previous canola generations, Cargill said.
The canola hybrid, sold separately under Cargill’s Victory product line, has been developed through traditional breeding methods with a focus on club root and black leg disease resistance and high yield performance. Farmers could also choose herbicide tolerance as an optional genetic modification depending on their intended market and personal preference, Cargill said.
