[b]Just reread your post. I have been to 3 different allergist and never told to avoid canola oil. Did the allergist ever reply to that? It is made out of corn from what I am told.[/b]
No, Josh's mom, I Haven't followed up with the allergist about this---I will at our next appointment (not until May)--it isn't a pressing concern of mine (as we have been using canola oil for at least 2 years without any problems), I was just wondering what others had been told. My DD was also allergic to sesame and outgrew last year with a negative food challenge to confirm. Perhaps, because of the history of seed allergy, she was recommending we avoid Canola (????).
This is what Crisco's site says about canola oil: Canola oil is produced from the seeds of the canola plant. This plant grows best in cool, moist climates. In fact, it received its name because the canola plant is Canada's major oilseed crop. Of all vegetable oils, Canola oil is the one naturally lowest in saturated fat. Because it's 100% vegetable oil, Crisco Pure Canola oil contains no cholesterol. It also has no additives or preservatives, and can be used in any recipe that calls for vegetable or salad oil.
I never did make it to Trader Joe's today---we'll have to try tomorrow.
I looked at Prego because that is what dh and I often eat, but they have about 20 ingredients where other companies have about 5. I didn't look at Ragu.

Bertolli olive all is what I use in almost everything. I called and was assured it was safe. I tend to use the "light" olive oil because the extra virgin is too heavy for my taste. I use it in baking as well as main dishes. Occasionally I use Crisco soybean oil.
Pasta sauces...when I went to Trader Joe's just about all had traces of peanuts or nuts! We have used Bertolli Tomato and Basil for years. I called and was assured there was no chance of cross contamination on this brand.
