Can Corn Oil Be An Extra Fat?
In the morning I asked if mazola oil could be an additional fat for mpasi? Thank you
Thank you for the question.
The oil product you mentioned contains the main composition of canola oil. Canola oil itself is a vegetable oil derived from canola seeds (Brassica napus). This oil is known to have various benefits, because it is full of nutritional content, such as containing monounsaturated fats, polyunsaturated fats (omega 3 and 6), also vitamin E. Not only that, this oil also contains low trans fats and cholesterol. With this nutritional content, canola oil consumption is useful in controlling blood pressure, maintaining healthy heart and blood vessels, minimizing inflammation, preventing weight gain, smoothing digestion, as well as preventing the growth of cancer cells.
Some sources often doubt the benefits of the above in the use of canola oil in infants. Reported at several sources, the use of canola oil in baby food, including as additional fat for MPASI, actually has a higher risk of causing heart and blood vessel disorders due to the content of erucic acid in it. Calories in this oil are also considered less significant in supporting the increase in baby's weight. However, until now, there are still not many scientific studies that support this concern of adverse effects. Therefore, as long as you use this canola oil within reasonable limits for your baby, also offset by the provision of nutritious food and other drinks, this seems harmless.
Furthermore, you can consult directly with your doctor or pediatrician at the nearest health facility.
I hope this helps.
