MYOM Oat Drink and Rapeseed Oil. And Why We Chose It...

MYOM Oat Drink and Rapeseed Oil. And Why We Chose It...

Creating A Unique Oat Drink Taste Profile

Rapeseed oil brings a distinct flavour to MYOM Original Oat drink that sets it apart from other plant-based alternatives. The taste of MYOM is the number one reason for people when buying and recommending MYOM, regardless of all the other advantages. With its neutral and mildly sweet undertones, the use of our GMO-free and Kosher rapeseed oil adds a delightful complexity to MYOM Original Oat drink. Our rapeseed oil ensures that the distinct oat flavour is enhanced and not overshadowed.

Elevating Texture and Creaminess

Using rapeseed oil in MYOM Original Oat is a game-changer when it comes to texture and creaminess. It lends a velvety smoothness that creates a luxurious mouthfeel, making every glass a truly indulgent experience. From cappuccinos to creamy desserts, MYOM froths beautifully and the possibilities to incorporate it into recipes are endless.

A Conscious Choice

The inclusion of an oil in MYOM is a considered choice. Not only does our rapeseed oil contribute to the sensory pleasure of MYOM Original Oat, but we also chose it for its beneficial fat profile compared to other vegetable oils. Rapeseed oil has a high content of unsaturated fats, particularly polyunsaturated fatty acids including omega 3. These types of fats can support heart health and overall well-being. We chose GM-free, kosher rapeseed oil from a British supplier sourced from European crops.

What does GM-free mean?

Rapeseed oil is a crop that can often be genetically modified (GM), in fact up to 90% can be – although there are no GM rapeseed crops grown in Britain. Rest assured we carried out extensive quality checks when sourcing our oil and it is certified GM-free, a key quality credential.

Nutritional Benefits of Rapeseed Oil

In general, rapeseed oil boasts an impressive array of nutritional components that can positively impact health. Here are some main benefits:

  1. High in Unsaturated Fatty Acids: Unsaturated fats, such as monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids, are known for their heart-healthy properties. Rapeseed oil is abundant in these unsaturated fats, which some studies have found that it is this fatty acid profile which may contribute its potential impact on reducing cholesterol levels.
  2. Rich in Omega-3 Fatty Acids: Omega-3 fatty acids play a crucial role in various bodily functions, including brain health and regulating inflammation. MYOM Original Oat drink contains a favourable ratio of omega-3 to omega-6 fatty acids compared to other seed oils such as sunflower seeds.
  3. Vitamin E and Antioxidants: Rapeseed oil contains vitamin E, along with other flavonoids and carotenoids. These have antioxidant potential, which may help to protect against the damage caused by free radicals.

Our rapeseed oil contains 35mg of Vitamin E per 100g.

Comparison with Other Oils

When it came to choosing the right oil for MYOM Original Oat drink, it was essential to not only have the right taste, texture, and creaminess, but also to consider the health properties of all ingredients.

We carefully chose rapeseed oil due to its more beneficial polyunsaturated fatty acid profile when compared to other seed oils. Rapeseed oil is higher in omega 3 fatty acids and lower in omega 6. You can see how it compares to sunflower oil and soya bean oil below:

*Polyunsaturated fats, also called polyunsaturated fatty acids or PUFAs, are considered good fats.

Rapeseed oil has a higher content of omega 3 and significantly lower content of omega 6. Therefore, rapeseed oil shines in comparison to vegetable oils, such as soybean or sunflower oil due to its much lower omega 6 : 3 ratio.
