About Rapeseed Oil Benefits
An independent, not-for-profit campaign
Welcome to Rapeseed Oil Benefits, which is an independent, not-for-profit website. Here you’ll find everything you need to know about rapeseed oil including nutritional info and delicious recipe ideas.
Launched in 2008 by AHDB Cereals & Oilseeds, this campaign aims to increase awareness of the culinary and nutritional benefits of rapeseed oil as part of a healthy balanced diet, and to inspire people to use this cooking oil.
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. 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.
