That organic living is a conscious health choice
Outstanding French producer of organic oils BioPlanete combines state-of-the-art technology with traditional production methods to deliver premium-quality oils derived solely from organic farming methods.
We’ve chosen to stock our shelves with nearly the entire range of BioPlanete’s oils because they make cold-pressed oils of exceptional quality by always choosing the gentlest processing methods possible. All their organic oils (with the exception of one) are vegan and vegetarian. And many are suited for inclusion in raw food diets. These are their most popular oils.
A must-have in your pantry, extra virgin olive oil is suitable for most types of cooking, plus it is good for your health too. Rich in mono-unsaturated fatty acids and polyphenols, olive oil is good for cardiovascular health and the control of cholesterol levels. Drizzle some oil over meat and vegetables before throwing them onto the grill and you have yourself a simple yet delicious meal. Because of its anti-inflammatory and disinfectant qualities, it can also be used as a massage oil.
Safflower oil is mild in taste, making it an ideal accom¬pa¬ni¬ment to green salads, bean shoots and raw veg¬eta¬bles. It can greatly enhance the taste of your dishes due to its delicate flavour.
If you are on an organic, whole¬grain and health food diet, safflower oil is excellent for adding taste and fatty acids to your diet.
Considered to be the pearl of mac¬ro¬bi¬otic cuisine, sesame oil has many health-pro¬moting qualities. It increases con¬cen¬tra¬tion and has a detox¬i¬fying effect. To best enjoy its nutritional benefits and flavour, sesame oil should only be heated very gently. Mix it with vegetables, fish, rice and noodles just before serving.
Rich in vitamin E and linoleic acid, sunflower oil is most effec¬tive in its nat-ural state, so drizzle it over salads and raw veg¬etable dishes. It can also be gently heated and used for steaming, but never for frying or roasting.
The Argan tree is one of the oldest on the planet and is an endangered species. Several projects have been launched to save the UNESCO protected tree. This nutty flavoured oil high in unsaturated fatty acids comes from an oil mill in Morocco where revenue from its production helps support reforestation efforts.
Argan oil is also made up of more than 80 % unsaturated fatty acids, mainly oleic and linoleic, and is naturally rich in anti-oxidants. This oil is ideal not only for North African specialities but also for salads, lentils, egg dishes, pancakes and other desserts.
BioPlanete oils are available at SuperNature Forum and online.
