Canola oil gives me extreme indigestion. Can you suggest another cooking oil.

I'm pretty sure you can substitute any other vegetable oil, like corn oil, safflower oil, etc., possibly even olive oil. I like corn oil myself.

Thank you. Sometimes various

Thank you. Sometimes various oils just don't work. I usually use olive oil, or if I'm sure that won't work I will use a vegetable oil.
