The most recent canola study's conclusions are based on the consumption of 4 weeks of consuming a smoothie made with high-oleic canola oil enriched with omega 3 DHA from algae. Participants lost 1.6% of their abdominal weight while on this diet. Other participants consuming 4 other types of oil did not lose weight. This included: 1) regular canola oil; 2) high oleic canola oil; 3) a flax and safflower oil blend; and 4) a corn and safflower oil blend.
