Aussie Start-up, Edward’s Oil Launches Australian Made and
Chemical Free Cold Pressed Canola Oil

Edward’s Oil, the new Australian start-up, is excited to announce the launch of the nation’s first chemical free Cold Pressed Canola Oil onto Woolworths shelves nationwide.

Edward’s Oil products are 100% Australian made and are designed to inspire Aussie’s to cook natural, healthy and clean food. Edward’s Cold Pressed Canola Oils combine the health benefits of a chemical-free cold pressed oil, with the functional cooking benefits of a highly processed oil.

“Most other cooking oils on the market are heavily processed – meaning heat pressed, chemically refined, bleached and deodorised – and we all know processed foods aren’t good for you, so why compromise with your cooking oil?” explains Edward Garrow, Founder and CEO of Edward’s Oil. “It’s time that Australia had a more natural and healthier alternative.”

“Our premium quality Cold Pressed Canola Oil is a healthier and more affordable substitute to olive oil,” explains Edward, “with a higher smoke point, 50% less saturated fat, richer in Vitamin E and Omega-3 with a more balanced Omega 3 to Omega 6 ratio.  It’s simply a better oil for all uses” states Edward.

Edward’s Oil has launched two GMO free variations of quality Cold Pressed Canola Oil; ‘First Pressed’ with a subtle nutty flavour and Naturally ‘Filtered’ with a neutral taste for more versatility when cooking. Its high smoke point makes it a kitchen essential for all baking, frying, roasting and everyday cooking. Equally, both oil types are delicious in salad dressings, dips, marinades or make the perfect finishing touch to a home cooked dish. 

Sarah Dacres-Mannings, Accredited Practising Dietitian (APD) and Sports Dietitian Fellow explains that “Edward’s Cold Pressed Canola Oil is an incredible healthy and versatile oil, providing a large range of health benefits not seen in any other single oil. It has a very high level of heart healthy monounsaturated fats, does not contain trans fats  or cholesterol, and is very low in saturated fats with only 7%, compared to olive oil at 15%, and peanut oil at 19%”.

“Edwards Oil is also high in Omega 3 with a great ratio to Omega 6, Omega 3’s help to lower “bad” cholesterol, improve heart rhythms, reduce stroke risk and play a vital role in reducing inflammation” says Sarah Dacres-Mannings. “Ideally, we should all consume 1000mg of plant Omega 3 per day which is the equivalent to less than a tablespoon of Edward’s Oil”.

“Edward’s Oil is a good source of vitamin E which works as an antioxidant protecting against free radical damage. Vitamin E assists in eye health, nourishes hair and nails, repairing of damaged skin cells, brain function, boosts immune response and reduces inflammation.”

Edward Garrow and Marc Schwartz, the Sydney-based duo behind the industry’s newest addition, support local Aussie farmers sourcing canola only from the Cootamundra, NSW region. The brand guarantees traceability from farm to bottle, with the security of a natural and chemical free product.

Consumer research firm Kantar Worldpanel reported that Cold Pressed Canola Oil was the fastest growing vegetable oil in the UK, with experts explaining consumers are now looking for a more affordable and healthier alternative to olive oil.

Edward’s Oil is available exclusively at Woolworths stores nationwide in a premium 750ml glass bottle. Edward’s Cold Pressed Canola Oil: First Pressed, 750ml, $9.00 | Filtered, 750ml, $9.00
