Did you know that canola oil is such a popular cooking oil due to its mild flavour and high smoke point? This makes it suitable for various cooking methods such as frying, baking, and sautéing, especially in a commercial environment.

Well, now you do!

There are however various methods for extracting canola oil from the seeds of the canola plant and not all of them lead to the same golden outcome that you get with FRANK; the most common being the chemically processed method.

No Chemicals. No Additives. No Numbers.

Chemically processed canola oil is produced by using solvents like hexane to extract the oil from the seeds. The solvent is then evaporated, leaving behind the oil. The problem is it may leave behind chemical residues in the oil.

While hexane is commonly used to extract edible oils from seeds and vegetables, as a special-use solvent, and as a cleaning agent, the reality is that exposure of humans to hexane can cause mild central nervous system (CNS) effects, including dizziness, giddiness, nausea, and headaches, to name a few.

This method is quicker and more efficient than cold pressing, but clearly not ideal with the impact on the final product being quite significant, not to mention the impact on people.

Moreover, during the chemical process, the oil may also undergo high heat and pressure, to maximise yield, which can also lead to the breakdown of the oil and the loss of its nutritional value by the time it gets to the end consumer.

On the other hand, there’s FRANK, cold-pressed, BARE canola oil. FRANK is extracted without the use of chemicals or solvents. This method involves pressing the seeds, which results in the oil being squeezed out of the seeds. This method is slower and less efficient than the chemical method, but it retains more of the oil’s natural flavours and nutrients; because cold-pressed canola oil is not exposed to high heat or pressure, it is less likely to undergo chemical changes or oxidation that can lead to the production of harmful substances.

What Makes Frank Special - Frank Bare Oil

Naturally filtered canola oil, like FRANK, refers to the process of filtering the oil without using any chemicals or bleaches. This method involves passing the oil through a series of filters made of materials like diatomaceous earth, activated carbon, or clay, which helps to remove impurities and sediment from the oil. This natural process, once again preserves the natural flavour and colour of the oil, while also retaining its nutritional value.

We refer to FRANK as a BARE oil, simply because it is a completely natural product with no additives, no chemicals, no numbers, nothing; just 100% pure, natural and BARE cold-pressed, premium, Australian CANOLA oil.

In summary, chemical-free, cold-pressed, and naturally filtered canola oil is a healthier and more natural alternative to the chemically processed oils that have flooded the market.

FRANK retains all of the oil’s natural flavours and nutrients, and contains no harmful chemicals or residues. When choosing canola oil, it is best to opt for the cold-pressed and naturally filtered variety. Opt for FRANK to ensure that you are getting the healthiest, tastiest and best oil possible, because #oilsAINToils#isFRANKisGOOD
