Auzure Canola Oil our Liquid Gold
Take a look in any kitchen in Australia and you will find a bottle of liquid gold. Cooking oils have become a kitchen staple and the base of virtually everything we cook, and at times the finishing touch. The supermarket aisles are crowded with hundreds of diverse oils, with varying cooking, nutritional and health benefits.
Oils contribute to the taste and texture of dishes; but they are not all created equally. So, what is the healthiest oil?
You would be hard pressed to find a purer oil then family-owned Australian MSM Milling’s expeller- pressed premium canola oil, auzure Canola Oil. 100 per cent Australian-grown and made by the hands of hundreds of New South Wales farmers who plant, nurture and harvest pure Non-GM canola seeds that are then carefully pressed, to extract the highest quality canola oil.
Known as expeller pressing, this process does not use solvents to extract the oil, instead, the seed is conditioned and then pressed. The oil is then refined to give it the clean taste, light colour, and high stability.
The name ‘auzure’ was developed to conjure up images of everything that’s good about this healthy oil, au for Australia and the chemical symbol for gold, combined with pure, as it’s the purest oil on the market, that’s how you get auzure!
MSM Milling Director Pete Mac Smith is about as proud of the product as he can get.
“Whatever you’re doing in the kitchen, our auzure Canola Oil performs. It’s fantastic for sautéing, grilling, stir-frying, coating baking trays, ensuring baked goods maintain their moisture and enhancing flavours in salads.
“Central to so many dishes, oils play a fundamental role in cooking because of their ability to conduct heat efficiently and prevent food from sticking to pans. auzure Canola Oil enhances the flavour, taste and mouthfeel of the dish – bringing it to life – with a plethora of health benefits that you may not find in other oils on the market,” Mr Mac Smith said.
Healthy oils contain a blend of mono and poly unsaturated fats that make them a healthy choice. Oils are essential in our diets to ensure our bodies can absorb essential vitamins and are critical for brain and nerve function.
Today, auzure Canola Oil’s highly sought-after nutritional properties make it the top choice for those interested in improving their health, whilst bursting with healthy fats and antioxidants.
Developed in the 1970’s in Canada, canola oil is extracted from the seeds of the canola plant. Canola obtains its name from two words: ‘can’ standing for Canadian, and ‘ola’ meaning oil. Since 2007, MSM Milling, have specialised in the production of canola and high-oleic oils at their world-class fully integrated oilseed crushing, refining, and packaging operation in Manildra, central west New South Wales.
It all starts at the farm for MSM Milling who has forged vital relationships with more than 1,000 local growers who tirelessly work to carefully cultivate and sow canola seeds in winter, which produce golden bright yellow fields of flowers in spring. The oilseed crop matures in late spring, with the flowers developing into pods. Each pod contains tiny black seeds that are made up of about 43 per cent oil.
From there its windrowed, harvested and finally, delivered to our world-class manufacturing site.
Here they expeller press the canola seeds to release the oil contained within, further refine and finally, bottle as premium auzure Canola Oil.
From well-stocked home kitchens, restaurants, and food service providers here in Australia and across the globe, nutrition and cooking experts agree that the neutral-tasting light texture of auzure Canola Oil delivers one of the most versatile, healthiest oils on the market.
MSM Milling General Manager (Commercial) Josh Gordon said that canola oil has almost zero trans fats, which means, no cholesterol, and is rich in monounsaturated fats which increases the good cholesterol in our bodies.
“With exceptional levels of Vitamin E, it has the lowest saturated fat of any vegetable oil and around half of that of olive oil. Low saturated oil content helps in lowering cholesterol and the risk of heart diseases.
“Additionally, it is rich in omega 3 and 6 fatty acids (polyunsaturated) and is an excellent option for vegetarians to obtain these fatty acids to help you maintain a healthy heart, preventing the risk of cardiac diseases, strokes, and ensuring healthy blood pressure.
“auzure Canola Oil ensures the ingredients in your dishes shine. Perfectly adaptable, it’s free flowing in the refrigerator so is great for marinades, sauces, and dressings, and is ideal for low to medium temperature cooking and sautéing,
or as a final addition to salads and dishes. Uniquely, its high smoking point, means you can cook at super high heats for pan searing and deep frying without smoking or burning the ingredients,” Mr Gordon said.
