What is the technology of producing high-quality Canola oil?
Canola Oil Elixir is obtained from the first pressing of rapeseed, offering unadulterated rich nutrients from the vegetable source. Cold-pressed, it becomes very versatile in the kitchen. It is confirmed that canola oil has the lowest content of saturated fat from all available cooking oils, it contains less than half of the saturated fats from olive oil and it is rich in Omega 3.
The chief benefits of regular use of cold pressed canola oil are:
- It has a low content of saturated fats. It contains linoleic acid (Omega-6) and α-linolenic (Omega 3), making it one of the healthiest oils for cooking. It contains important quantities of antioxidants, especially Vitamin E. This is a strong lipid soluble antioxidant, necessary for the stability of cellular membrane integrity, for the health of mucous membranes and of skin, by limiting free radicals.
- It has the highest smoke point, being the ideal choice for frying. It can be heated at high temperatures, leading to reduced content of absorbed oil in fried food.
- It is rich in unsaturated healthy fats, especially Alpha Linoleic Acid (ALA), its integration in diet being very important because the body doesn’t produce it on its own. Studies show that ALA helps protect the heart, through its benefic effects on blood pressure, reducing cholesterol and through its anti-inflammatory action.
Omega 3 and Omega 6 content is the asset of Canola oil
Compared to other vegetable oils, Canola oil content naturally balances Omega 3, Omega 6 and Omega 9, which make it a source of essential fatty acids. It contains 55% of monounsaturated fatty acids, oleic acid, linoleic acid and saturated acids. The most important fatty acids are Omega 3 and Omega 6, which help lower bad cholesterol from the blood and strengthen the well-functioning of the heart and brain, reducing inflammation, but, also, aiding the natural development of the body.
It is recommended to include Canola oil in a vegetarian diet, because avoiding meat, one does not acquire enough Omega 3.

It supports the healthy functioning of the cardiovascular system
Canola oil contains a high level of sterols, simple lipids, which play an important role in the fight against heart issues. We should increase the intake of plant sterols for maintaining our heart healthy.
. Canola oil is rich in calories. Despite this, its caloric content comes from healthy fats. It is extremely rich in monounsaturated fatty acids, like oleic acid, which constitute 61% of all fat content. Oleic acid helps lower LDL or “bad cholesterol” and raises HDL or “good cholesterol” in the blood.
Studies show that a Mediterranean diet, rich in monounsaturated fatty acids helps prevent coronary heart disease and vascular accidents. Also, according to American Agency for Food Administration, products with 0.4 grams of sterols from plants or more per portion, can reduce heart attack and can lower bad cholesterol by 10-15%.
Keep in check heart disease in a healthy, natural way!
Antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties
Rich in vitamin E, a strong, necessary antioxidant, Canola oil helps us maintain the integrity of the cellular membrane, protecting the skin from free radicals. This can also help in lowering heart disease, cancer and loss of memory.
Due to the presence of fatty alpha-linoleic acid (Omega 3), it reduces inflammations and articular pains. People who suffer from arthritis can use Canola oil as an adjuvant in recovery treatments. The benefits of Canola oil can be seen in other inflammatory disease, like issues of the digestive system (inflammatory bowel disease and irritable bowel syndrome).
One teaspoon of Canola oil contains 15% of the recommended daily allowance of vitamin E!
