Food is an essential and universal component of life. Yet the field of food and nutrition science is constantly evolving, consumer perceptions are ever-changing, best practices in the food industry are always emerging, and policies and regulations are playing a bigger role in how the food industry does business. What’s more, health and wellness has become a top priority for individuals and government alike.
The bottom line? There’s a lot happening in the food industry, and we hope this new blog becomes a regular resource for you.
Here on our blog, we’ll cover trending topics, provide regulatory updates, discuss practical tips, decode product ingredient labels and dietary guidance, and share how Omega-9 Oils meets the needs of all those involved in the food chain – from farmers to processors and product developers to consumers.
You can also learn more about what makes Omega-9 Oils a superior solution to foodservice and food processing needs. Our oils were developed through the latest technology and research to deliver healthier foods without compromising taste or performance.
The unique fatty acid profile of Omega-9 Canola Oil features a high percentage (74%) of the heart-healthy monounsaturated fat, oleic acid. It also contains zero trans fats and is the lowest in saturated fat among cooking oils, allowing the foodservice and food processing industries to reduce bad fats and increase good fats in food products.
Omega-9 Oils’ nutrition profile also contributes to its functionality. The low omega-3 fatty acid content reduces the amount of oxidation the oil undergoes, lending to natural stability for packaged and fried foods. This allows for longer fry life in restaurants and a greater shelf life in packaged foods without the use of added antioxidants and preservatives.
Finally, Omega-9 Canola Oil has a clean, light taste that doesn’t interfere with a food’s natural flavor. With taste as the No. 1 driver of food and beverage choices, this is an important quality for menu planners and food developers to consider.
We also invite you to explore other helpful tools on our site.
