Dietary fats are closely related to Coronary Artery Disease (CAD). Cholesterol, saturated and trans fats are harmful whereas MUFA, PUFA (especially Omega-3 PUFA) are beneficial for the heart. Choice of heart healthy oil could decrease the occurrence of CAD. This article reviews the benefits/harms of common edible oils on heart health. A heart healthy oil should be cholesterol and trans fats free, low in saturated fats, high in MUFA and PUFA, should have ideal N-6 to N-3 ratio (< 4:1) and high smoking points. Mustard and Canola oils offer to be ideal in this regard. Epidemiologic studies also suggest that people consuming mustard oil have less CAD as compared to other oils.

Keywords: Edible oil, Saturated fats, Trans fats, Omega 3 fats, N-6/N-3 ratio, Smoking point, mustard oil, Canola oil.
