BLOCK 275 COLD PRESSED CANOLA OIL is pressed from our farm grown GM-free canola. Our 2019 and 2020 harvest oil is from a variety called Bonito.
Did you know that canola oil has the least saturated fat of all the dietary fats? Instead it is loaded with polyunsaturated (omega-3 and omega-6) and monounsaturated (omega-9) fats. You can check out our instagram feed to see the Comparison Chart. These unsaturated fats can help reduce the risk of heart disease and lower cholesterol levels.
Vitamin E is also found in vegetable oils. It helps maintain healthy skin, good vision and the correct functioning of the immune system.
So how does our product stack up?
In one serve of BLOCK 275 COLD PRESSED CANOLA OIL:
there is just 0.8g of saturated fat and no trans fats (because our product is not hydrogenated - a process where hydrogen molecules are added to amongst other things, increase shelf life).
over 40% of the daily RDI of Vitamin E for an adult is supplied
And because our product is unrefined (no nasty processing), it retains all of its healthy characteristics. While our shelf life is 12 months, we recommend using it within 3 months of opening to maintain quality.
We are confident with our Nutrition claims because we've had our BLOCK 275 COLD PRESSED CANOLA OIL independently tested at a NATA accredited laboratory.
