The purpose of this study is to assess the efficacy of high-oleic canola oil and a high-oleic
canola/flaxseed oil blend as compared to a typical Western diet on plasma lipids, fatty acid
profiles, and risk factors associated with cardiovascular disease in hypercholesterolemic
patients. Furthermore, the metabolism of dietary oleic acid and alpha-linolenic acid
contained in high-oleic canola oil and flaxseed oil will be investigated.
