FAQs

WHAT ARE OMEGA-9 OILS?

Omega-9 Canola Oil, Plenish® Soybean Oil, and Sunflower Oils are cooking oils that offer superior functionality and performance for the food industry (manufacturers and foodservice) and health benefits for consumers. Omega-9 Oils create healthier foods without compromising taste or performance.

WHERE CAN I BUY OMEGA-9 OILS?

Healthy Oils offer performance attributes that best fit foodservice and food manufacturing applications. Omega-9 Oils are not available at the retail level because they were developed specifically for use in foodservice and food manufacturing. Find a supplier.

WHAT RESTAURANTS AND FOOD MANUFACTURERS USE HEALTHY OILS?

Some of the nation’s leading restaurants and food manufacturers already have switched to Omega-9 Oils, including Taco Bell, KFC Canada, Pop Weaver popcorn and many universities such as Virginia Tech and UMass. Check out who’s switched and stop by and ask them about how healthier oils can lead to healthier business.

ARE HEALTHY OILS EXPENSIVE?

Healthy Oils offer a cost-effective solution by providing up to 50% longer fry life. That means fewer oil changes and case purchases, as well as reduced labor and oil removal costs. Omega-9 Oils deliver proven performance for a healthier business by reducing labor and cleaning costs

WHY ARE TRANS FATS BAD FOR MY HEALTH?

Trans fats can negatively impact heart health, by increasing LDL ‘bad’ cholesterol and decreasing HDL ‘good’ cholesterol. Trans fats have been banned in many cities and regions across North America due to these negative impacts on health. Healthy Oils have zero trans-fat, the lowest saturated fat among cooking oils and uniquely high “heart-healthy” monounsaturated fat. Learn about the health benefits of Omega-9 Oils.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN OMEGA-3, OMEGA-6 AND OMEGA-9?

Unsaturated “good” fats are available in three different forms: Omega-3, -6 and -9. Learn what makes each fatty acid unique.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF MONOUNSATURATED FAT?

Monounsaturated fat can reduce your risk for heart disease and diabetes because they help maintain your HDL ‘good’ cholesterol and lower your LDL ‘bad’ cholesterol. Both Omega-9 Canola Oil and Plenish have heart-healthy monounsaturated fats.

OMEGA FATTY ACIDS AND MONOUNSATURATED / POLYUNSATURATED FATS DIFFERENCES?

Polyunsaturated fats are omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. Monounsaturated fats are omega-9 fatty acids. Packaged foods can use both terms on package labels, so it’s important to understand both.
