It has long been established that olive oil is good for us and can reduce cholesterol levels, but what most people do not know is that cold pressed rapeseed oil is an even healthier cooking oil. Take a look yourself...
Omega 3s & 6s
Unlike other vegetable oils, cold pressed rapeseed oil contains a natural balance of omega 3, 6 and 9 oils, making it a great source for these essential fatty acids. ‘Good oils’ are essential in bodily functions, including aiding cholesterol reduction, and maintaining a healthy heart. Omega 3 also helps form the building blocks for brain and eye tissue development, and is therefore beneficial in the diets of young children. Whilst omega 6 can be found in several food sources, it is harder to include omega 3 in our diet. The high ratio of omega 3 to omega 6 that occurs in cold pressed rapeseed oil, helps redress this in-balance, and ensures optimum nutritional benefit.
Cold pressed rapeseed oil contains natural vitamin E, which is a powerful antioxidant.
