An Amazingly Versatile Oil - Hemp Seed Oil

As someone who cooks meals from scratch regularly, I tend to stock up on different types of cooking oils. The type of oil I use depends on the dish I am cooking and the kind of flavour required. In my kitchen you will mostly find Olive oil, Sunflower oil, Coconut oil and Clarified butter. A recent addition to the stock has been Hemp seed oil from Good Hemp Food.

GOOD Oil Original is a deliciously nutty hemp seed oil for cooking. Hemp seeds are cold pressed to extract the oil which is naturally rich in Omega 3. You can use it in a way similar to Olive oil.

Here are some facts about the oil from Good Hemp's website:
- Higher content of Omega 3, 6, & 9 (the good polyunsaturated fats) than any other culinary oil
- Naturally rich in Omega 3
- 1 table spoon (10ml) of Hemp seed oil contains 94% of the daily recommended intake of Omega 3
- Half the saturated fat of olive oil
- Can be used for dressing, dipping and cooking

I have been using this oil now for 3-4 weeks and it is indeed a very versatile oil. Smells lovely and tastes wonderful as well with a lovely nutty flavour. I have used it pretty much for everything - as a salad drizzle, for roasting peppers and potatoes, for making fluffy omelettes and for regular cooking and it has tasted good in all cases. If you are looking for a healthy culinary oil and haven't tried Hemp oil, then I would recommend that you give this a try.

You can read more about this Hemp oil and other products from Good Hemp Food here - The oil is available in 250ml & 500ml bottles and can be picked up from Tesco, Ocado, Waitrose, Sainsbury's and Holland & Barrett among others.
