Why Welland Valley rapeseed oil?

Welland Valley premium, cold-pressed rape seed oil.
‘A first class culinary oil’.

We’re master growers of rapeseed; we’ve been cultivating crops since the 1940s - and we know just how to get the best out of them.

Oil can be extracted from the seed in two ways, either using a heat treatment which benefits large scale production but yields a lower grade oil – or by ‘cold pressing’ the seed which yields a higher grade of oil but is not conducive to mass production.

We don’t use mass production techniques to extract the oil (no heat extraction, de-gumming, bleaching); ours is virgin seed and ‘cold pressed’ in order to retain its vital nutrients.

It’s free of any additives, chemicals, detergents or deodorisers – we simply press the oil out of the seed, pass it through a filter and bottle it into beautiful
golden oil.

Why rapeseed oil?


Rapeseed oil is a good source of both polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fat.

Also, it contains ten times the amount of Omega 3 fatty acids than olive oil - according to the British Nutritional Foundation, Rapeseed oil is one of the richest sources of Omega 3 essential fatty acids. Other important sources include oily fish, nuts, grass-fed meat and greens.

Omega 3 cannot be produced by the body, so to get Omega 3 – you need to introduce it to your diet.

Good in the Kitchen
Because rapeseed oil has a pleasant, nutty flavour combined with a high flash point – it is versatile, usable in all types of cooking, from salads to Yorkshire Puddings! Rapeseed oil – ranked highest (9/10) in a recent comparison with other culinary oils
