Has anyone been told to avoid canola oil for treenut allergy or peanut allergy? We were never told anything about avoiding but I've seen a couple posts that questioned whether it was safe for tree nut allergic people- but no definitive answer. Thanks

DD is both PA and TNA

Our son is P/TNA and we use Canola or Olive oil all the time. Can't think of the name brands right now, but you'll probably want to research the companies to find out what you're comfortable with - so many are making peanut oils now.

We use canola all the time oil too. I buy Wesson. My son is PA/TNA and allergic to seeds too (sesame, poppy and sunflower).

I am both PA/TNA and canola oil is in the margarine I eat every day.

Edited to add: I use Filippo Berio Olive Oil quite often (for both eating and for use on my skin).

I am wondering what exaclty is canola oil made of? Olive oil is from olives, corn oil is from corn, etc. My son is on the elimination diet and I read the ingredients for 100 % pure veg oil is joybeans. What is a canola? We need to avoid corn, soy and green beans,

Canola oil comes from the canola plant.

[url="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canola"]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canola[/url]

In agriculture, Canola is a trademarked cultivar of genetically engineered rapeseed variants from which rapeseed oil is obtained. Also known as "LEAR" oil (for Low Erucic Acid Rapeseed), Canola oil was initially bred in Canada by Keith Downey and Baldur Stefansson in the 1970s[citation needed].

The word "canola" is derived from "Canadian oil, low acid" in 1978.

I use it and have never had a problem.

I just bumped a thread that I started almost 4 years ago. Since then I have used different varieties of Olive oil exclusively. All the brands that I have called - all say that they produce Olive Oil only. And I find that the light flavored ones are fine for baking.

Thanks from me too.
I have used canola, vegetanle and olive oil cooking sprays and have never noticed a difference in taste or results. It only occured to me after I made homemade taco shells for my son that I should look at the frying oil I am using. He was so happy that he was able to eat a taco because the taco shells are always corn shells... he had an awesome taco minus the tomato which he cannot have.

We use Canola Harvest canola oil and Colivita extra-virgin olive oil. I called both companies and they are both entirely pn and tn-free. I've seen some brands (sorry--none come to mind right now!) that also have a peanut oil or hazelnut oil line also on the shelf.
