Oil, Oil everywhere…

What is Crisco?  Our mothers always had Crisco on the shelf!  It was shortening before other names came to mean cooking oil.  Do you know what Crisco is?

Crisco is crystalized cottonseed oil.  The modern Crisco can be found with omega-3’s.  WTF!

Canola stands for Canadian oil association.

Are these really foods?

Most recently, there are banner headlines regarding the trusted olive oil not being really olive oil!

I am not aiming to become the chemist of what foods are made of, but we as consumers need to know what is and what is not real food!
