Naturally Good Food stocks organic, cold-pressed, unrefined and virgin oils, as part of its renowned wholefoods range. These oils are produced to the very highest standards, preserving as many nutritional qualities as possible, for maximum health and taste benefits.
We’ve got oils for cooking at high temperatures, oils for drizzling, oils for use in baking and oils for external (toiletry and massage) purposes. There’s something for everyone, whether you need a small bottle for ordinary cooking, or a huge drum of oil for catering purposes.
All our oils
Here’s a quick round-up of all our oils. If you’re not quite sure which one to use for a particular purpose, check out our blog: If you could only buy one bottle of oil which should you buy?
One of the world’s most precious culinary oils, this is rich in vitamin E, carotenes and unsaturated fatty acids (Omega 6 and 9).
This oil has a deliciously smooth flavour, a vibrant green colour and a velvety texture.
Coconut oil is the ultimate multi-tasker – it can do just about anything! With its high proportion of lauric acid, it’s one of our top sellers.
This oil contains the highest level of omega-3 fatty acids of any vegetable oil. It helps protect the body against high blood pressure, inflammation and water retention, and boosts the immune system.
This oil isn’t cold-pressed, as current techniques don’t allow for this. It’s derived from the seeds of grapes and is light-flavoured and light-coloured: ever so slightly fruity, with a hint of nuttiness.
With a strong, nutty flavour, this oil is a great source of oleic acid and is especially rich in vitamin E.
Hempseed is a rich source of omega-6 fatty acids; the oil derived from these seeds is considered by many to be the most perfectly balanced vegetable oil (in nutritional terms) of all those produced.
We stock the very finest extra-virgin olive oils. They’re packed with antioxidants, including the anti-inflammatories oleocanthal and oleuropein.
Peanut oil is rich in antioxidants, especially vitamin E, and full of mono- and polyunsaturated fats, which help lower overall cholesterol levels.
Pumpkinseed oil (and the toasted variety)
This oil’s wonderful thick, green colouring is complemented by its silky texture and deliciously nutty aroma and flavour.
Low in saturated fat, rapeseed oil contains all three omega fatty acids, as well as vitamin E. It’s one of the healthiest culinary oils available.
Safflower oil has the highest Omega 6 content of any of the organic, cold-pressed oils in Clearspring’s exhaustive range. It also contains Omega 9 and is a good source of vitamin E. With a high smoke point, it’s ideal for frying.
Sesame oil (and toasted sesame oil)
Toasted sesame oils have a pronounced flavour which, for many people, is the essence of Asian cooking. Untoasted sesame oil is much more delicate and has a higher ‘smoke point’.
Also known as ‘soybean oil’, this is rich in Omega 3, 6 and 9 fatty acids.
An old cooking favourite, produced to especially high standards.
Rich and nutty and a great source of monounsaturated fat.
We also stock Clearspring’s Omeg-A-Day blend of oils, comprising 78% flax oil, with walnut, sunflower, olive and pumpkin oils too. Designed for diets deficient in Omega-3, it’s intended to be taken medicinally, as part of a healthy balanced diet.
Oil in bulk
This is one of the cheapest ways to buy oil from us (you can also buy a full case of smaller bottles of oil, for a standard 10% discount). In our bulk oil section, we currently have drums of coconut oil (up to 20 litres), along with extra-virgin olive oil in 3-litre and 5-litre cans and large bottles of sunflower oil.
