Our variety of oil types all have various health benefits ranging from helping you manage cholesterol levels, provide you with essential nutrients and vitamins, and reducing inflammation. 

Let's break it down:

Benissimo Infused Oils: Heart-Healthy Elixirs

Our collection of Infused Oils have a base of Canola oil and are naturally infused with locally-sourced dried herbs for delicious and rich flavor. Canola oil, derived from the seeds of the canola plant, possesses a composition rich in monounsaturated fats and omega-3 fatty acids, making it a heart-healthy choice. Here are some notable health benefits:

1. Heart Health:

Canola oil's low saturated fat content aids in reducing LDL cholesterol levels, thus mitigating the risk of cardiovascular diseases. Its omega-3 fatty acids contribute to reducing inflammation and promoting overall heart health.

2. High Smoke Point:

With a high smoke point, canola oil is suitable for various cooking methods like sautéing, baking, and frying without breaking down and releasing harmful compounds.

Toasted Sesame Seed Oil: A Nutrient-Rich Elixir from Seeds

Our Toasted Sesame Seed Oil is a staff favorite because of its nutty, umami flavor that is perfect for marinades, vinaigrette dressings, and even just drizzling over savory foods. Sesame oil, extracted from sesame seeds, has been an integral part of traditional medicine and culinary practices for centuries. Its unique composition offers an array of health benefits:

1. Antioxidant Properties:

Rich in antioxidants like sesamol and sesaminol, sesame oil helps combat oxidative stress, protecting cells from damage caused by free radicals.

2. Nutrient Density:

Loaded with vitamins (B and E) and minerals (calcium, magnesium, and iron), sesame oil supports bone health, aids in blood clotting, and boosts immunity.

Avocado Oil: Nature's Liquid Gold

At Benissimo Oils, we offer both Non-GMO Avocado Oil and Organic Avocado Oil. Avocado oil is the MVP of the kitchen and can be used for any cooking or baking needs. With a high smoke point, it's the perfect go-to frying or grilling oil, but it's mild, buttery flavor also makes it the perfect healthy baking oil. Avocado oil, pressed from the pulp of ripe avocados, has gained popularity for its exceptional health-promoting properties:

1. Rich in Monounsaturated Fats:

Similar to olive oil, avocado oil is abundant in oleic acid, a monounsaturated fat linked to reducing inflammation and improving heart health.

2. Nutrient Absorption:

The presence of healthy fats in avocado oil aids in the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins like A, D, E, and K, promoting better nutrient assimilation.
