Wignall's Yallo rapeseed oil is 100% cold-pressed, meaning it’s made using a ‘press’ to squeeze the oil out of the seeds, retaining all the natural flavour. It’s then simply filtered and bottled.
Only products labelled as ‘cold-pressed’ are naturally processed without the use of heat and chemicals.
We use a very straightforward process that helps to keep in all the goodness.
Rich in Omega 3 and less than half the fat of olive oil, this nutty-tongued king of frying, roasting, baking and dressing is ram jam full of earthy goodness.
what is rapeseed oil?
You may not know too much about the oil, but you’ll surely be acquainted with the plant. Rapeseed oil comes from the seeds of the one and only oilseed rape plant; that of the sunny sea of yellow flowers fame. It turns the UK golden every spring.
Rapeseed oil is the only oft-used culinary oil widely grown and bottled here in the UK. Other vegetable oils, like olive and sunflower, are mostly imported.
Cold-pressed rapeseed oil has a mightily impressive profile when it comes to nutritional benefits. Among many other things, it contains plant sterols and is a rich source of vitamin E, a natural antioxidant.
It’s no slouch when it comes to fat, either: cold-pressed rapeseed oil has what’s known as a beneficial fat profile. It contains less saturated fat than other commonly used cooking oils and fats (e.g. 50% less than olive oil).
Too much fat in our diets, especially saturated fats, can raise our cholesterol, which increases the risk of heart disease. The government currently advises that we should be cutting down on all fats and replacing saturated fat in our diets with some unsaturated fat, like cold-pressed rapeseed oil. So, if you’re looking for a way to ditch saturated fat, cold-pressed rapeseed oil is a good option. Cold-pressed rapeseed oil contains no trans fats.
Unsaturated fat can be either monounsaturated or poly-unsaturated. It contains essential fatty acids: omega 3, 6, and 9. Cold-pressed rapeseed oil is a good source of exactly this!
