We like to think of our organic cold pressed canola oil as Canada’s answer to Olive Oil! It’s freshly pressed every week in small batches and is unrefined without additives or preservatives. Highwood Crossing organic Canola Oil is intensely flavoured with a bright, golden-yellow colour. Use just like you would use olive oil! It’s great in salad dressings and marinades and drizzled over vegetables (especially fresh tomatoes). Chefs describe our canola oil as robust, fresh, gutsy, golden and buttery.
It’s a wonderfully balanced and nutritionally significant oil containing a healthy ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 essential fatty acids. Canola oil has a unique fatty acid profile very similar to extra virgin olive oil. Based on the fact that this oil has half the amount of saturated fat found in olive oil, many say it has the best fatty acid profile of any edible oil. Very low levels of saturated fats and high level of monounsaturated fats make this cold-pressed organic oil a staple for every health-conscious chef or home cook.
To use fresh canola oil in baking, substitute it straight across in any recipe calling for vegetable oil. If you find the taste too strong, divide the amount of canola oil in half and add either water or applesauce to replace the oil.
Store canola oil in the refrigerator once opened for a maximum shelf life of one year. Unlike olive oil, our canola oil can be stored and used directly from the fridge.
Highwood Crossing organic cold pressed canola oil is certified organic and non-GMO without additives or preservatives. Freshly pressed every week in a nut and peanut free environment with no traces of soy or dairy.
