Interested in real taste? Recipes with rapeseed oil!

Yellow is happiness. The bright rape flower in May happily anticipates summer and is a clue to the enjoyment that it conceals. Especially high-quality edible oils are gained from the dark brown seeds. Enjoy the colour yellow in all of its forms. Fine rapeseed oil for all occasions is pale yellow, tasteless and odourless, and therefore very versatile, even when things get hot in the kitchen. Whether for boiling, steaming, deep or shallow frying, fine rapeseed oil delicately underscores the aromas of the fresh ingredients. Cold-pressed rapeseed oil specialities are refined: honey yellow with a distinct nutty aroma for a starring role in cold cuisine. This gently produced rapeseed oil gives a subtle pep to salad dressings, dips and marinades. In German kitchens, rapeseed oil has usually remained anonymous under the general designation "vegetable oil", but quality from Germany has a name, and tastes good too. That is why vegetable oils made from rapeseed are proclaimed more and more often.

Effects of Dietary Vitamin E from Rapeseed Oil on Gene

Expression in Brain and Liver of Rats Dissertation

Epidemiological studies associated the intake of vitamin E-rich foods, but not of vitamin E supplements, with significant risk reductions for neurodegenerative disorders, including Alzheimer’s disease (AD), and other lifestyle related diseases. The underlying mechanisms were suggested to include the reduction of oxidative stress as well as the modulation of the expression of disease-relevant genes by the antioxidant. Rapeseed oil is a particularly rich source of natural vitamin E (VE) and considered to be of great nutritional value because of its high content of monounsaturated fatty acids and the polyunsaturated omega-3 fatty acid α-linolenic acid.
