Canola oil is lower in saturated and trans-fats than olive, sunflower or soybean oil. It is entirely free of cholesterol and high in beneficial Omega 3 fatty acid, and vitamin E. It is also high in monounsaturated fats, which can reduce the risk of heart disease.
Healthy soil makes flavorful oil. We grow only non-GMO seed using energy and soil saving minimum-till planting methods. This oil is processed in small batches without the use of solvents in the extraction process. The refining process does not use high temperatures so the oil retains all of its natural characteristics.
Our fresh-pressed Canola oil is squeezed from non-GMO seed grown on our farm outside Madison, Wisconsin; using seed from the most recent harvest to produce the highest quality oil.
Most Canola oil is processed in large industrial factories with several hundred food miles from field-to-table. Locoil is pressed where it is grown and travels less than 50 food miles for its complete life cycle. Locoil from Madison-area restaurants is recycled to make biodiesel which in turn powers our farm equipment.
