Take heart, mustard oil and olive oil is healthy for you
US FDA has found credible evidence to support that consuming edible oils high in oleic acid, such as mustard oil and olive oil, may reduce risk of heart diseases
New Delhi: Consuming mustard, olive or canola oil can help keep heart diseases at bay, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has said. The top US regulatory authority has found credible evidence to support that consuming edible oils high in oleic acid (a monounsaturated fatty acid) may reduce the risk of coronary heart diseases. The health claim will now be allowed on the packaging labels for edible oils. However, these oils must contain at least 70% of oleic acid to meet the criteria, added FDA.
