Our range of cooking oils are not only delicious, but also carry many health benefits.
From glowing skin to greater memory, there are a range of benefits when you use our oils in your recipes, which have been enhanced by our ground-breaking cold extraction process.
Our Extra Virgin Avocado oil is smooth and delicious, perfect for cooking and as a natural dressing. The cold-pressed extraction method we pioneered is now being used around the globe. This method allows the oil to keep its nutrients, and prevents them from being destroyed in the traditional process.
Avocados are a fantastic source of potassium, which lowers blood pressure, keep muscles and nerves working, and regulates your heartbeat. They also help to regulate blood sugar levels, especially in those with diabetes.
Rich in Vitamin E, avocado oil is good for your skin and hair, acting as a natural anti-aging nutrient, strengthening the capillary walls, and improving moisture and elasticity. Avocados have only a small percentage of trans fats, with nearly 70% of their oil made up of oleic acid, a monounsaturated omega-9 fatty acid – this makes avocados unique in the cooking oil family.
A staple of the Mediterranean diet, Olive oil has been used for centuries in cooking. While high in fats, olive oil is made up of mostly monounsaturated fats, the “healthy” kind. These fats are considered healthy because they actively reduce the bad cholesterol in your blood, reducing the risk of stroke or heart-attack.
Packed with antioxidants, such as Vitamin E, a balanced diet of olive oil can help slow the aging process, reduce the risk of cancer, along with cataracts and muscular degeneration. A new study has found that the Mediterranean diet, helps to increase longevity and is less prone to heart disease than the rest of Europe.
A principle component of the South Asian diet for thousands of years, coconut oil is considered by many to be a super-food.
Studies suggest that daily intake of coconut oil may help you lose weight by burning calories faster and reducing appetite. It also has unique anti-microbial properties, and can kill fungal infections such as ringworm or thrush.
Our Extra Virgin Coconut Oil is produced using an advanced cold extraction process. This unique method preserves the natural goodness of the coconut flesh without heat or chemicals. The raw white flesh of the coconut is cold pressed and the oil is centrifugally separated and filtered, producing a delicious, silky-smooth oil.
At 84%, our cold pressed extra virgin macadamia nut oil contains one of the highest levels of monounsaturated fats amongst all food oils. This is great for heart health, lowering your bad cholesterol and resulting in less chance of heart disease.
Macadamia oil is also very high in natural antioxidants and contains Omega 3 and Omega 6, which can have a powerful effect on the overall health of the body.
Our Extra Virgin Peanut Oil contains no trans fats, additives, preservatives or artificial ingredients, and is perfect for Asian and Middle Eastern cooking.
Unlike most other cooking oils, peanut oil contains no cholesterol at all, and due to its high rate of phytosterols, studies have shown it can lower cholesterol levels by 10-15%!
Sesame oil has many benefits and is great for keeping your skin healthy and hydrated. Containing Vitamin E, it also helps to keep joints flexible, increases skin elasticity and smoothness and also helps to fight skin conditions and even slows down the aging process.
Sesame oil has been traditionally used by many cultures as a hair product, strengthening hair fibres and retaining hair colour.
Our cold extraction process preserves all the natural goodness of raw sesame seeds, and contains no trans fats, additives, preservatives or artificial ingredients.
Again, used for centuries in the Mediterranean, almond oil is an excellent source of Vitamins E and D. Scientific research has shown the almond oil is particularly effective when it comes to intestinal problems.
In fact, eating almonds is proven to reduce the risk of colon cancer, and almond oil injections are used to treat a variety of colorectal problems, including irritable bowel syndrome. Two tablespoons of almond oil per day can relieve constipation, so pour it over your salads or vegetables for some mild relief!
Have the best of both worlds with our organic Omega Oil.
This is a blend of our Avocado Oil (55%), Olive Oil (40%), and Flaxseed Oil (5%), and contains no fish oils, making it suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
Omega oil comes with a vast array of health benefits, but the Omega-3 fatty acids in particular, are one of the most beneficial groups of nutrients for your brain, building brain cells, membranes and reducing inflammation. They help improve memory, mood, and cognition, and even fight against depression and dementia.
Why you should choose Olivado
Modern science is finally catching up to the old wives’ tales and proving that certain types of oils are good for you.
Many of the nutrients, vitamins, and antioxidants found in oils are lost in the extraction process, which is why we developed our cold pressed method.
This allows us to squeeze the oils while the temperature remains below 50 degrees – allowing the oil to retain its goodness.
Our pioneering method is now used all over the world – something we’re very proud of.
