Is Organic Expeller Pressed safflower/canola oil ok or still something to be avoided?

  • Avoiding Soy on Ignite is important, but if the oil is organic and expeller pressed does this make it ok? or should it still be avoided even in the balance phase?

    I am sorry as I am not on Ignite, but safflower/canola oil is never not processed. That oil is nasty in its natural state and needs to be highly processed. Google "how canola oil is made" on youtube.

    Yes, stay away from these oils, as michaelk mentions on this thread. They are high in omega 6 fatty acids, which can cause systemic inflammation in your body. Stick to olive oil, coconut oil, etc, and make sure to take an omega 3 fatty acid supplement like fish oil. The closer your omega 3 to omega 6 fatty acid ratio is 1:1, the better. Most people get way to much omega 6 and no omega 3 in their diets.
