NEW Heart Smart cooking oil is officially the healthiest way to fry, roast or bake your favourite meals. Heart Smart cooking oil has the highest amount of Omega 9 (good fats) compared to other oils. With a mild, neutral taste it will enhance the flavour of your cooking and add good health to your daily menu!

Super High Monounsaturated Safflower Oil (HeartSmart™) is a 100% Australian, sustainable vegetable oil derived from the seeds of Safflower plants. With simple modifications developed by CSIRO, the Safflower crop produces the highest amount of monounsaturated fat in a vegetable oil  whilst reducing saturated fats. HeartSmart™ has been deemed the “Best in Class” monounsaturated oil, making it an obvious choice for the vast majority of cooking needs.

The Benefits

Health

Rich in monounsaturated fat – the “Healthy fat” according to the Australian Heart Foundation – and low in saturated fats, oils such as HeartSmart™ have been proven to help lower cholesterol and improve heart health. It also may help improve blood sugar and reduce inflammation.

Cooking

Unlike other oils, HeartSmart™ can be used successfully in both high temperature cooking as well as low heat cooking, or even raw preparation. With an exceedingly high smoke point of 226oC, HeartSmart™ is one of the best oils for both frying and baking, massively reducing the release of free radicals.

While other oils such as olive oil also contain healthy unsaturated fats, HeartSmart™ has virtually no flavour, making it the perfect choice for a salad dressing or the like, as there will be no taste alteration. HeartSmart™ can also be stored in the fridge as it will remain a liquid unlike its competitors which will often go cloudy or solidify.Local Effect

HeartSmart™ is 100% Aussie made and grown. With the introduction of safflower oil to the market many rural Australian farmers will be entrusted to grow the safflower plants. This will provide a reliable income for many local farmers across Australia.

Environmental Impact

Our production process is carbon neutral, making it a good choice moving forward in lowering our environmental footprint.

Sustainable supply

Due to the safflower plants hardiness, it is relatively easy to grow and resistant to most climates Australia has to offer, from harsh to temperate. This allows for continuous supply of oil year-round, potentially avoiding growing problems and shortages found in some other plants and avoiding the need to resort to overseas imports.
