Melrose Fresh Oils - your best guarantee of freshness, purity and quality.
The importance of the essential fatty acids in vegetable oil demands nothing less.
Complete Food - More Flavour
Melrose Fresh Unrefined Oils have a more distinct flavour and aroma, just like any other whole food which has not been denatured or processed. If you are used to denatured, refined oils, it may take some time to become accustomed to Fresh Unrefined Oils. Besides the nutritional benefits, unrefined oils will impart extra aroma and flavour.
Education - The right oil for the right result
Melrose have oils for specific needs and uses. For instance, it is not generally known that it is only in Extra Virgin and Virgin Olive Oil that the antioxidant polyphenols and squalane are present.
In "Pure" and "Light" Olive oil, these natural ingredients have been removed in the refining process. Always use Extra Virgin Olive Oil for optimum health and always check the label and the chart which explains why particular oils are best suited to your needs.
Facts about Fats and Oils
In our commitment to health and the consumer, we do not stop at the manufacturing and distribution of the highest quality certified organic, fresh unrefined oils. We also aim to educate the user about fats and oils and where possible, shed light on controversial nutritional issues.
John Finnegan (Author of The Facts about Fats) says: -" Good quality oils need to be expellor-pressed at temperatures below 45 degrees C and not solvent extracted. They should not be subjected to high heat temperatures, to deodourising, bleaching, alkali refining or winterising processes. They need to be produced by light and oxygen excluding methods, bottled in containers that prevent the further exposure to light which causes rancidity and where possible, they should be produced from organically grown seed."
