How Canola Oil Is Made [A VIDEO]

Posted by Hannah Broaddus


Over the years we’ve showed a lot of information on how olive oil is made. We haven’t, however, showed much on how canola oil is made.

Given the popularity of this oil (it holds the #2 spot in terms of US oil production volume, and Non-GMO Canola Oil is now Centra Foods’ #1 item), I thought it would be good to answer all of your canola oil questions with a video that explains and demonstrates canola oil production.

Canola Plant Seeds For OilThis video is from National Geographic, and shows the production of RBD Canola Oil (conventional canola oil) as well as an initial expeller press process. Though not every piece of information in this video is accurate for Centra Foods’ exact oil, it will give you a good indication of the overall process of how canola oil is made.

If you’ve ever wondered about how canola oil is made, this is a great video to watch!
