R-Oil is a family business based in the Cotswolds that specialise in the production of Extra Virgin Cold Pressed Rape Seed oil.
- A Natural Oil
R-Oil is entirely natural and unadulterated.Extracted in the same way as extra virgin olive oil but with only half the saturated fat of its Mediterranean alternative and far more cost effective.
- Tasty and Versatile
With its amber colour and light nutty flavour, R-Oil looks and tastes great. Extremely versatile and high quality, R-Oil can be used in a variety of ways from deep frying to salad dressing, marinades to roasting.
- Free from Additives
After harvest, the grain is dried and cleaned before pressing without heat or the addition of solvents.
The high level of Oleic Acid provides temperature stability and prolonged frying time without the need for hydrogenation (which produces unwanted transfats). Processed, solid fat is bad for us and the widespread use of Palm Oil which is generally a block of fat that is melted to be used in fryers is dire for our health and in many cases the environment. R-Oil can do the job of palm oil due to a high smoke point (it gets to a very high temperature) without the negative health implications, making it the ideal oil for anything deep fried.
