I always thought olive oil was 'healthier'....until I put both bottles of olive oil and canola oil in the fridge. Several days later, I found the olive oil completely hard, with the consistency of fridge-cooled chicken fat. The canola oil, on the other hand, was free-flowing, just cooled.
We hear the benefits of olive oil in ads, food networks, nutrition labels, diet guides, and so forth. I hardly hear (or see) anyone or any place using or selling canola oil in the same context as its more 'refined' counterpart.
Which do you prefer, and why?
