Why Switch to Rapeseed Oil?
Rapeseed Oil has less than half the saturated fat of olive oil, resulting in it being one of the healthiest culinary Oils in the market.
It contains no artificial colours, flavours, or preservatives, and is a natural source of healthy fats known as omega 3, 6, and 9. Omega 3 and 6 are essential in the diet and are well known for their health benefits. They help to maintain normal cholesterol levels in the body, which is important for a healthy heart and cardiovascular system.
It is a rich source of vitamin E, a natural antioxidant which helps to protect the body’s cells from damage.
High Burning Point
With a high burning point of up to 240°C, Donegal Rapeseed Oil is ideal for frying steaks, roasting, stir frying, as well as for salad dressing, and home baking. Unlike Olive oil which can leave a burned taste when cooking at high temperatures, Rapeseed oil only enhances your food which is why Rapeseed Oil is the preferred choice of so many top chefs.
Why Choose Donegal Rapeseed Oil?
Our Donegal Rapeseed oils have all these benefits in addition to a superior “Nutty” flavour due to the unique soil in the rich unspoiled countryside of the Finn Valley and Foyle Valley in East Donegal.
