Health Canada recently announced the approval of certain canola protein isolate ingredients for use in food products in Canada. Canola protein isolate ingredients are new food ingredients in Canada that are intended for use as alternative protein sources.If you have mustard allergy, Health Canada is recommending that you avoid products containing added canola protein as they may cause an allergic reaction in some people. This is because they contain proteins that are very similar to mustard allergen proteins.
Historically, the only product of canola that is commonly used in food is canola oil. Canola oil is normally highly refined and does not contain any appreciable amounts of protein. For this reason, canola oil is not considered to pose a risk for people with mustard allergy. More information can be found on Health Canada’s website…
