Where is it stocked please.​

Got this quote from wiki: Rapeseed oil is one of the oldest vegetable oils, but historically was used in limited quantities due to high levels of erucic acid, which is damaging to cardiac muscle of animals, and glucosinolates, which made it less nutritious in animal feed.[23] Rapeseed oil can contain up to 54% erucic acid.[24] Food-grade canola oil derived from rapeseed cultivars, also known as rapeseed 00 oil, low erucic acid rapeseed oil, LEAR oil, and rapeseed canola-equivalent oil, has been generally recognized as safe by the United States Food and Drug Administration.[25] Canola oil is limited by government regulation to a maximum of 2% erucic acid by weight in the USA[25] and 5% in the EU,[26] with special regulations for infant food. These low levels of erucic acid are not believed to cause harm in human neonates. wiki link

It's vegetable oil! That's all rapeseed oil is, this is mutton dressed as lamb.

This is good stuff. Makes lovely tasting roast potatoes. BTW....Extra virgin is a process and nothing to do with Olives, any fruit/vegetable oil can be "extra virgin", just indicates first pressing. Most cheap vegetable oil is or has a high % of rape seed but at a vastly different grade.

Rapeseed oil is healthier than olive oil and it's a fact. Half saturated fat content of olive oil.

Actually as some others have acknowledged it is better to use in frying and sauteeing than olive oil (higher burn point) - as well as several other benefits. Its more like "lamb dressed as mutton".

Extra virgin LOL! Not an olive in sight, man they think the public are … Extra virgin LOL! Not an olive in sight, man they think the public are stupid. Oh wait, that's the whole lidl marketing plan, mix up cheap discounted stuff with a load of things that really aren't a bargain and hope the public think it's all cheap. Not the hukd crowd!



"Extra virgin" means how it is processed, absolutely nothing to do with olives. Eg; hollandandbarrett.com/sho…228

Rapeseed oil is the new olive oil.

What is the difference between cold pressed rapeseed oil like this and a bottle of vegetable oil that is 100% rapeseed oil?

If you're talking any 'health' benefits wise then nothing. They did a thing about it on Food Unwrapped. If you go and check budget supermarket oil it should say what type of oil it's made from and you can find rapeseed all over the place. If this had a different flavour due to the first pressing then you'd want to use it in things like salad dressings or drizzled on crostini but you wouldn't use it for cooking - it would be a waste, like cooking with extra virgin olive oil.

Heat added in the market for some oil so will give this a try.

​Thanks!

I'd say the cold pressed / EV stuff, as with olive oil, has a much more distinctive & nutty taste. Which might indicate why it's usually vastly more expensive. I own and use EVO of olive and rapeseed, and "normal" rapeseed (marketed as veg) & olive oils, predominantly from Lidl for day to day use but also specialist stuff occasionally from food exhibitions etc. (I've got a stack of these: supernature.uk.com/ )

Aside, rapeseed oil has been getting a bad rap because of heavy neonicotinoid pesticide use in the farming of it, which is of considerable harm to bees. This seems to be easing off but it's still something to watch out for.
