I was in the store about a month back and got rope in by one of those sample people becuase my daughter wanted the pancake they were offering samples of. Thank you Trina for getting me roped in. But it had nothing to do with the pancake mix they were advertising for Crisco!!!!?? My first thought was ok I buy the complete mix just add water. Then the lady went on to say this crisco is special. Umm yeah right whatever lady. But she brings out this green 16 oz bottle of canola oir with Omega -3 and DHA. Ok I see that it's healthy supposedly. Those are good things to have ingested into your body .. But I was always told that water and heat break down the Omega 3 oil to and make it almost non effective so why would I cook with it? the DHA I have no clue if it breaks down in water or heat. But I bought it any way and thanks to my daughters whine. LOL!! So Now I have it ai have used a third of the bottle and I'm not even sure how to go about and test the results. LOL!!! [i]So my questin to you is do you think that this is going to be helpful or do you think that we're destroying the good things it can do through the cooking process?? Thoughts questions and concerns?[/i]

I think that many companies know we are extremely interested in healthy eating for ourselves and even more so when it comes to what we feed our children - they also realise if we think that a product is more likely to help promote health and wellbeing in our children we will pay a bit more for it! Well then they will put twists in their products to make us believe they will do just that so they can make even more profits. I am not saying that this is necessarily true of this product but it does happen - more than you would think, these companies manipulate the truth of the health benefits of their products within the loopholes of the law! Aaargghh they do annoy me so much! Ok rant over - sorry but this really upsets me! xx

I made brownies with it and cake. He he he. .It's just oil to me. I think that the level of break down in the cooking process doesn't let it be as healthy as they depicted it to be. grrr.

This holds true with just about everything we cook. If you cook blood out of red meat you lose the iron. If you cook veggies you lose the vitamins, etc...I don't buy into this Omega 3 food hype. If I was that concerned I would take Omega 3 supplements which I don't. This goes to show you how concerned Iam...
