Udo’s Oil – An Omega Powerhouse

Udo's Oil

Udo's OilEveryone and their dog seems to be using some form or another of olive oil; from all the hype of the  Mediterranean diet, to the acclaimed health benefits, it seems to be the ideal choice for a healthy oil, right? What about coconut oil? First it was the worst oil for you to eat, and now it’s the healthiest? What’s the deal with finding the right oil, and how do you know it’s the best one out there? First off, how is the oil made? Most oils are refined, processed, bleached, and exposed to heat – that is a total no no! Oil should always be unrefined and unprocessed. How is it packaged? If it is in plastic then it is definitely not the right oil for you. Plastic can leach harmful substances into the oil. Think about it, would you ever drink wine out of a plastic bottle – didn’t think so, so why would you ever buy oil in a plastic bottle? Does your oil have omegas in it? You know, the essential fats that our bodies need for increasing energy, strengthening the immune system, improving cardiovascular health, and improving brain function? Since both coconut and olive oil (not to mention grapeseed or flax) don’t have all of the essential omegas, chances are that you are not getting all of them in your oil. So… with all that being said, it must be time for an oil makeover.

One oil blend that is getting a lot of recognition is Udo’s Oil™.  This omega powerhouse is packed with all the essential omegas required by our body. Carefully cold-pressed in small batches, Udo’s Oil™ is unrefined, unprocessed and made by a local company in Burnaby B.C., Flora Manufacturing and Distributing. The oil blend is made from carefully sourced organic ingredients, such as flaxseed (all of the flax seeds are from certified organic Canadian grown flax), sunflower seed, sesame seed, coconut oil and evening primrose seed oil. Besides Udo’s Oil™ being organic, it is also Non-GMO, Vegan and Raw, that’s right raw!  Meaning the oil does not get pressed at a temperature over 55°C. On top of that the oil is packaged in amber glass bottles, and not plastic. Seriously though, what more could you ask for?

Udo’s Oil™ really will take any dish to the next level, and it can be added to any meal. Where the oil really shines is in salad dressing, it will seriously transform any salad. We dare you to try the recipe below; you will be hooked.
