Baljinder Chohan Flavours: Is there any difference between canola oil and vegetable oil?
Is there any difference between canola oil and vegetable oil?
Yes, both in smoke point and flavor.
I am not a fan of rapeseed oil also known as Canola oil.
When heated, to me it gets bitter.
Vegetable oil is usually corn or soybean oil where I am and I use soybean oil. Also peanut oil. Both for general use. When not using the above I usually use olive oil.
Lots of threads here on Chowhound discussing the merits and pitfalls of them both.
