In an age where our customers are alert to healthier eating and preferring to eat more heart and circulation friendly fats. This is where Rapeseed oil is the obvious choice.
Omega 3, Omega 6 and Omega 9
Cold-pressed Rapeseed oil contains Omega 3, Omega 6 and Omega 9 reduce cholesterol. The body is unable to produce these fatty acids itself, so it’s essential that we consume them in our diet. They contribute to healthy joint, brain and heart functions. Cold-pressed Rapeseed oil contains these fatty acids in the correct ratio, offering a real nutritious boost.
Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant. Cold-pressed Rapeseed oil naturally contains Vitamin E, needed for a strong immune system, healthy eyes and healthy skin.
Naturally-occurring Plant Sterols
Plant Sterols are fat-soluble compounds with a similar structure to cholesterol. These are found in some vegetables, nuts and seeds. When eaten, Plant Sterols and cholesterol compete for absorption into the bloodstream. Plant Sterols are absorbed easier and so our bodies discard the unabsorbed cholesterol. Cold-pressed Rapeseed oil contains naturally occurring plant sterols which provide a super boost to its health providing properties.
Olive Oil can be toxic at very high temperatures and also impart a strange ‘off note’ as the oil breaks down. Rapeseed oil has a higher smoke point than Olive Oil, making it a much better tasting alternative for frying and roasting.
