How do you know? If you eat an olive, you get the oil, if you eat a grape, you get the oil, if you eat any grain, seed, fruit with seeds, you are eating the oil. Clearly they ate more animal fat than any other, but they did get fats from fruits, nuts, seeds.

None of those oils were used in "caveman times".

IVARD, briefly, some thoughts on these food products, from a general "paleo" or health angle... what I've read, etc...

Corn and barley flour: they are grains... the common thought being that they contain antinutrients. Also, in large part GMO (genetically-modified). So, not "paleo";

Soya: made of soybeans... are high in phytic acid, which is believed to block the body???s absorption of minerals such as calcium, zinc magnesium and iron. Also, the issue of soy isoflavones... believed to be plant hormones that mimic estrogen in the body. Fermented soy products however seem to negate the perceived bad issued with soy. My thoughts: For the amount eaten (soya sauce is essentially just flavoring)... I wouldn't stress over soya sauce. Check ingredients though... sometimes they add MSG in there, which is not good;

Peanuts: actually a legume, not a nut... same antinutrients explanation is usually put forward for shunning them; fairly easily replaced with cashews, though (a thought);

Sunflower and Canola oils: Part of the "industrial seed oils" no-no espoused by paleo;

Popcorn: a grain=antinutrient. GMO. How about non-GMO, organic corn? Good question. People on both sides of the fence on that one. Corn is relatively high in sugar... but yummy snack :)

Flax seed: are rich in a form of omega-3 fatty acids called ALA (alpha-linolenic acid)... which is good (vital for the development and ongoing well-being of the nervous system and for the health of the cardiovascular system... they improve lipid profiles, thin blood, and combat inflammation... they may also curb insulin resistance). But there are some who feel that high incidence of ALA from flax increases prostate cancer risk. See here: http://jn.nutrition.org/content/134/4/919.full.

Olive and palm oil: generally believed to be quite good for you. Yay!!

All the best!

According to paleo principles? Probably none of them. It appears to be some packaged junk, so that's a paleo DQ right there.

I would stay away from that product.

The biggest reason: Canola oil is a industrial product, doesnt belong in human stomach.

When looking for a healthy oil. Consider, Cold pressed. Unrefined, Unfiltered, non chemically extracted. Non GMO.

95% of Canola / Rapeseed is GMO chemically extracted. Same with Soy, Corn, and Some Palm oils.

Olive oil, Grape seed oil, Flax and Camelina Oils have been used since Caveman times.
