What makes it the best please, out of interest?

What are the health benefits of Rapeseed Oil?

◾Contains the lowest saturated fat content of any oil - less than half that of Olive Oil.
◾Has 10 times more Omega 3 than Olive Oil.
◾It is a good source of Vitamin E.
◾High in monounsaturated fats.
◾Contains no artificial preservatives and is trans-fat and GM free.

Great find: thanks. Hot

Depends what you're looking for, i think:
You should be getting pressed stuff (when marketed as rapeseed oil);
far better for cooking than the usual
Veg/sunflower/olive oil stuff.
Less harmful than the olive oil bunch, with some extra beneficial properties too
Naturally comes with it's own range of flavours, so just getting a different bottle can be interesting (although I think you can get flavourless or adjusted ones like olive oils)

This is not a national deal, probably the remaining stock of a previous deal.

Does anyone know if my son could use this oil in his deep fat fryer ???

Is that areal question? I guess that depends on your sons ability to use a fryer. !

Coconut oil is £6 at Tesco but you only need half a teaspoon so works out cheaper and has more health benefits!! But I also use grape seed and olive oil for salads etc so hot from me cheap!

Course its a real question was meant as in he currently uses vegetable oil in it the query was can rapeseed oil be used for this kind of cooking he loves fresh chips instead of frozen

cheap rapeseed oil is usually genetically modified and is processed using chemicals.Be aware of that and if you value your health look for pressed rather than extracted oils of any type,it will cost more but worth it :-)

What is important with oil in frying is at what temperature does it start to smoke. Deep fat frying is best done at as high a temperature as possible that way less fat is absorbed by the food so a high smoke point oil is best.
You will need to compare oils,for instance olive oil is not a high smoke point oil so should be avoided.

Rape seed oil is perfect for use in the fryer and is better than any other oil, sun flower is OK but Olive Oil is a waste of money as you burn out all the benefits of the oil by heating it. Olive Oil is good for salads and beneficial

Could not find any evidence on the internet to support your statement.

Spent a fiver on Rapeseed oil last time as it makes delicious Mayo, lovely yellow colour. Does this have a nice taste?
