Don't see canola oil anymore

Postby canolafunola » Thu Mar 13, 2008 10:18 pm

A few years ago, most places I collect from used canola. Now it's all soy, have not seen canola for at least 2 years. My guess is soy bean oil is cheaper or canola has gone up subtantially? This is in the NE. How about your neck of the woods?

All VO prices have doubled. And canola is still more expensive. I see about 70%soy, 30% canola. Half of both is PHO.

Lucky you. Canola is a big oil crop in Canada?

I get 50% rice bran oil, 25% soy and 25% canola. All non-pho. My fish fry joint swears by rice bran oil and they're my busiest place.

Soybean futures have sky rocketed as have wheat and gold futures.
