Rapeseed Oil 20L      See our FRESH OIL SPECIFICATION here and our KOSHER CERTIFICATION here


Vegetable Rapeseed oil is made from crushed rapeseed by pressing and extraction. This is a highly versatile oil suitable for baking frying and salads. 

This oil is light straw coloured of UK origin.

Rapeseed oil has the lowest saturated fat of any culinary oil and less than half that of Olive Oil. Rapeseed Oil in fact naturally replicates a diet of low

saturated fat found in olive oil and good essential omega oils which are usually obtained from fish.

In the EU, if a food contains or consists of genetically modified organisms (GMOs), or contains ingredients produced from GMOs, this must be indicated on the label. For GM products sold 'loose', e.g. food in a restaurant, information must be displayed immediately next to the food to indicate that it is GM. In most cases this can be displayed on the menu. Vegetable oil derived from GM soya or other GM oil crops is included in this legislation.

 
What are the consequences of non-compliance?
Failure to comply with these labelling requirements is a criminal offence. The maximum penalty on summary conviction in a magistrates' court is a fine of £5,000.
 
Please see the leaflet opposite courtesy of Hampshire County Council Trading standards. This guidance is particularly succinct which is why we have chosen to share it.
