10 delicious Rapeseed Oil recipes

May 31, 2017

Replacing saturated fats with unsaturated fats such as rapeseed oil in the diet contributes to the maintenance of normal cholesterol levels, which may reduce the risk of heart disease. Rapeseed oil is widely available and public health advice encourages its use as a substitute for saturated fats as UK diet and nutrition surveys reveal we’re eating too much. 

Rapeseed oil in its different forms, cold-pressed and refined, can be used in many different ways, from dressings, dips, and marinades to roasting and frying. Rapeseed Oil for cooking can be used in baking in place of butter, reducing saturated fat content. Look out for flavoured rapeseed oils too.
