Supplying Better Nutrition with Great Taste and Clean Labels

With a growing global population, it is important to not only raise enough food efficiently, but also to raise high-quality food. Science and experience is showing us that it’s not just about having a sufficient supply, but supplying better nutrition, in the form of food that supports healthy, sustainable lives.

Consumers want high-quality food, made from high-quality ingredients. As consumers continue to replace the bad fats in their diet with the good, Omega-9 Oils is here to meet the growing trend of consumers desiring healthy, sustainably-made ingredients.

Between 2000 and 2014, Omega-9 Oils replaced more than 1.5 billion pounds of bad (trans and saturated) fats in the North American food supply.Replacing trans fats with healthy fats like canola oil could prevent 30,000 to 100,000 premature deaths a year.Switching to Omega-9 Oils resulted in meaningful cardiovascular risk reduction for more than 14 million people.
