Rapeseed Oil

About Rapeseed Oil

We source our Rapeseed from our local farming neighbours which means it’s grown on the heavy Warwickshire clay which helps give the finished oil a nutty flavour.  Granary Oils Rapeseed Oil is a premium rapeseed oil made using traditional cold pressing methods.
The screw press is run at a slow speed, (around 25rpm), to keep the heat caused by friction to an absolute minimum and so producing a truly Cold-Pressed Oil. This preserves the natural health benefits of the seed, creating an oil naturally high in vitamin E, rich in omegas 3, 6 and 9, and low in cholesterol. The finished oil is high in healthy Monounsaturated (61.4%) and Polyunsaturated (25.6%) Fatty Acids.

We have been asked a number of times if our oil is Extra Virgin. To the best of our understanding the term Extra Virgin belongs to the Olive Oil industry and refers to strict chemical and tasting standards that focus on aroma, flavour and acid levels and less to do with the first pressing as most people think.

With its natural health benefits and extremely versatile cooking properties, our oil is the best oil to use for all your culinary needs, from salad dressings and dips right up to high temperature frying.
