Chiltern Cold Pressed Rapeseed Oil
Simon and Chris are fifth generation farmers from the Mead family and have been farming in the Chilterns since 1860. Rape has been grown on the farm for more than 20 years. If you are not sure what Rape looks like, its that bright yellow flowering plant you see swaying in the wind all over the Chilterns during May and June.
Why is Chiltern Cold Pressed Rapeseed Oil the healthy option?
- It has around 6.5% saturated fat compared to 14% in Olive Oil
- It has 10 times the Omega 3 content of Olive Oil
- It is a rich source of Vitamin E; a natural anti-oxidant
- It is GM free; it contains the oil from the first pressing of our home grown crop with absolutely nothing added, no high temperatures in the processing, no chemicals, no bleaching, no additives or preservatives.
Don’t get confused with the vegetable oil found in plastic bottles at your supermarket. This seed has been subjected to extreme high temperatures, de-gummed, bleached, deodorised and the meal is then soaked in a solvent to extract the last drops of oil from it! This process destroys the Vitamin E and reduces the shelf life of the product and therefore the Vitamin E is added artificially at the end!
