Rapeseed oil – benefits and features

Rapeseed oil, extracted by cold pressing

Rapeseed oil, extracted by the cold pressing of the seeds of rapeseed is an extremely useful and natural product. The basis of cold pressing is to remove the oil from the seeds without heat treatment or chemicals. Cold pressing completely preserves the nutritional properties of the raw material and guarantees, that nothing is added or taken away from the natural canola oil. The result is universal, delicious rapeseed oil without any chemicals or additives.

The fact is little known, that canola oil contains the lowest level of saturated fatty acids of all vegetable fats.

Canola oil is preferred, as it is a rich source of vitamin E, omega 3, 6 and 9 fatty acids.

Omega 3 and Omega 6 are essential fatty acids, which the body does not produce on its own, because of this we must be sure, that we take them with our food. These two essential fatty acids contribute to development, the growth and maintenance of a healthy immune system and has a beneficial effect on the brain. It is important to consume them in the right proportion, as found in cold-pressed canola oil. It is this ratio that makes cold-pressed rapeseed oil one of the healthiest products.

Rapeseed oil is also a rich source of vitamin E. It reduces the bad cholesterol and has an overall beneficial effect on the body's immune system. It has a very good effect on the hair, a person's nails and skin.

Cold-pressed rapeseed oil also contains natural plant sterols. Plant sterols are fat-soluble compounds, found in some vegetables, nuts and seeds, including canola. They are similar in structure to cholesterol, because of which, when consumed, plant sterols compete with cholesterol for absorption into the bloodstream. Our bodies absorb plant sterols more easily, as they block the absorption of cholesterol. This causes the cholesterol to pass out of the body.

For 2020/21 world rapeseed production has grown by 1 million tons, reaching 71 million tons. The largest producers globally are the EU and Canada.
