    I avoid too much linolenic + linoleic acids because a recipe high in polyunsaturated fatty acids may be more prone to oxidation/rancidity/DOS. The rule of thumb I've heard is to not go over 15%. I don't know that there's any science behind this number, but it seems reasonable to me. This recipe pushes right up to that limit, so that's another thing to keep in mind.
