Borderfields cold presseed rapeseed oils
The Borderfields story began in Northumberland in 2005, when local farmers from either side of the Scottish Border came together to create a premium cold pressed rapeseed oil from their crops. Production of a high quality, simple, tasty product was their collective aim and with this, Borderfields was born.
Rapeseed oil is produced from the black seeds of the rapeseed plant, also known as Brassica napus. It comes from the same family of plants such as cabbage, broccoli, and cauliflower. Visually, the rapeseed plant makes for a lovely landscape surface during the spring when it sprouts vibrant yellow flowers and boasts wonderful uses as an oil.
Measured up against other oils, rapeseed oil has the least levels of saturated fat. In fact, when compared with the mighty olive oil, it only has half the amount of saturated fat.
Rapeseed oil easily has the least measured levels of saturated fat compared to any other oil. This qualifies it as a heart-friendly, weight beneficial choice. Rapeseed oil also has rich quantities of polyunsaturated fat, a fat that has been observed to lower levels of LDL cholesterol (bad cholesterol).
Rapeseed is also loaded with monosaturated fats, and is highly recommended for vegetarians. In cooking, it also can withstand more elevated temperatures compared to olive oil with a threshold of 230°C.
It soon became very apparent that cold pressed rapeseed oil was a sought after, new kitchen “must have” and sales into national retailers began the next year when Borderfields became the first national brand with a national listing. Much has changed over the 16 years but producing the best quality, most widely available product remains as one of our key virtues. With growth came new challenges and in 2009 the production facility was moved to Nottinghamshire where the infrastructure to support the growing brand and sector was developed.
With the Nottingham move Hammond Food Oils added their own home-grown rapeseed as well as new local growers keen to support the virtues of the brand. Traditional farming families from Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire joined with the growers from the North East and Scotland to produce the best seed quality to drive the best tasting product. Borderfields has a family of farms to draw seed from which has aided business growth. Having a wide geographical spread, at times of poor weather and difficult growing conditions, really does give more assurances. Whatever the weather we guarantee Borderfields quality remains the same!
