So, what is colza oil?

Colza oil is a versatile and healthy vegetable oil that is extracted from the seeds of the rapeseed plant, scientifically known as Brassica napus. It has a light golden color and a mild, nutty flavor that makes it a popular choice for cooking, baking, and salad dressings. Rich in monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, colza oil is known for its ability to promote heart health by lowering bad cholesterol levels in the blood. It is also a good source of vitamin E, which is essential for healthy skin and immune function. In addition, colza oil is a great alternative to other cooking oils due to its high smoke point, making it suitable for high-heat cooking methods such as frying and roasting.
