Highwood Crossing Recipes

Cold Pressed Organic Non-GMO Canola Oil

Highwood Crossing Canola Oil is a wonderfully balanced and nutritionally significant oil containing a healthy ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 essential fatty acids. Canola oil has a fatty acid profile that is similar to extra-virgin olive oil in many ways except one – it has half the amount of saturated fat. Because of its low level of saturated fat and high level of monounsaturated fat, many say that canola oil has the best all-around fatty acid profile of any edible oil. An independent lab analysis of our organic canola oil found it to contain higher amounts of beneficial vitamin E and beta-sitosterol and lower amounts of harmful trans-fatty acids than in the other canola oils which the lab tested.

Cold Pressed Organic Non-GMO Flax Oil

Fresh Flax Oil is one of the highest vegetarian food sources of the beneficial essential fatty acid omega-3 (alpha-linolenic acid). Current research findings suggest that omega-3 fatty acids help lower blood triglyceride levels and maintain the integrity of blood cell platelets. Omega-3 fatty acids are also critical for normal growth, development and good vision to name a few. But because our bodies do not produce alpha-linolenic acid on their own, the only way we can get the benefits of these essential fatty acids is by eating foods that are high in Omega-3’s. Organic Flax Oil is one of the best sources!
Recommendations from Health Canada state that our bodies need a minimum of 1.1 grams to 1.8 grams of omega-3 per day for healthy growth and development. One teaspoon (5 ml) of fresh flax oil contains approximately 2.4 grams of omega-3!
