I know canola is no good. but i gotta admit...i love mayo! i am a mayo fan and i have made several different recopies with just olive oil but it's just not doing it for me! i can't find anything without soy in the grocery stored but i have found the expeller pressed canola oil mayo spectrum brand.. is this any better than just regular canola??

Try high oleic sunflower oil, I know they sell it in Whole Foods.

Expeller pressed refers to how they extract the oil. It's essentially a giant machine that uses heat/friction to create the oil from nuts/seeds. Generally you want to stick to oils that are cold pressed, as this means the oil is not exposed to such high heats such as they are during expeller pressing.

soy free veganaise is made with expeller pressed, high oleic safflower oil. low in PUFA and high in oleic acid(o9). I just add my own egg yolks before I use it, making it real mayonaise.

Canola isn't terrible. 10% omega-3, 20% omega-6, 10% saturated and 60% MUFA.

Cold presses isn't regulated in the US, like it is on Europe...so in Europe it must be extracted under 90 degrees, but in the US, the term cold is subjective!
