Ex-oatly fan (still wanting to be convinced)

Hi, what Rapeseed Oil do you use? Lately i have been hearing and reading a lot how any seed oil is not good for our healths and rapeseed oil being one of them as its highly ultra processed. Can you advise more on rapeseed oil you use please?

regards,

Ridhima!

We really appreciate you reaching out to us. And if you're anything like us - putting trust into evidence based, major research - you'll be a convinced fan again in no time! Because when it comes to what's good for our health, we rely upon the experts in the field as well as proven health effects. 

 

The rapeseed oil we use in some of our products is expeller pressed, meaning no chemicals were used during the extraction. Thanks to its fat composition dietary guidelines continue to endorse rapeseed oil as one of the healthiest oils out there. When it comes to fat most people are recommended to opt for unsaturated and monounsaturated fats in their diet as they have a good effect on blood cholesterol = great for our heart! Whereas saturated fat (found in animal products for example) is something to keep at a minimum.  

 

Here's another article for a bit of in depth reading as well as sources. Happy reading! We're here for you should you have any questions or concerns.
