Frylite Rapeseed Oil:
Our rapeseed oil is 100% non-hydrogenated refined, deodorized and available for Bulk delivery. We operate a strict approved supplier programme and source oil only from approved suppliers. Oil is EU sourced. We also operate a detailed positive release programme of inspection and monitoring for all oil prior to acceptance and intake to ensure that the safest, highest quality standards are maintained from source to customer and onward to your consumers.
Our rapeseed oil available with and without anti-foaming agent (E900) to aid the frying process and is available in bulk, bucket or IBC delivery.
In terms of Quality & Chemical Standards, the following parameters apply:
- Appearance: light, golden yellow free-flowing liquid.

Oils purchased by Frylite are Non-Hydrogenated, refined, deodorised vegetable oils, which are a purified edible fat generally derived from a plant origin and composed mainly of triglycerides (>95%), therefore, becoming part of the Lipid family.
The Lipid family or fats as they are more commonly known, play a significant part of all living systems and are a major component of the diet. Fats and oils are the main supplier of energy to the body, therefore, helping every cellular reaction, every muscle movement and every nerve impulse to occur.
As highlighted, oil is composed mainly of triglycerides (fats) which come in two main forms, either saturated fat or unsaturated fat. Unsaturated fat is further broken down into two groups, polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fat. Saturated fats are often referred to as “bad fats” while unsaturated fats are referred to as “good fats”.
Oils and fats are a source of many bio-active compounds containing important Essential Fatty Acids (EFA) mainly Omega 3, 6 and 9. These EFAs are required within the body for cell membrane formation and function. Fat-soluble vitamin (A, D, E and K) and phytosterols are contained within vegetable oil and are required in biological processes within the body such as blood clotting.
Vegetable oils fat and nutritional composition vary between oil types and comparisons are noted below for Rapeseed and Soyabean oil typical supplied by Frylite. Rapeseed Soyabean Saturated Fat 7% 15% Monounsaturated Fat 63% 26% Polyunsaturated Fat 29% 58% Trans Fat Trace Trace As represented above, Rapeseed oil has the lowest levels of saturated fats among all commodity oils.
Due to Rapeseed increased monounsaturated fat content, oleic acid (Omega 9) is found in large quantities bring with it required Fat Soluble vitamins. Soyabean oil displays a higher saturated fat and polyunsaturated fat content with a lower monounsaturated fat profile therefore providing fewer Omega benefits. For full nutritional benefits, Rapeseed oil is the ideal frying oil as it contains low levels of saturated acid, allowing for less chemical alteration during the heat exchange process and is best adapted to cold and temperate climates.
Storage of Oils
Oils are an ambient product and therefore must be stored at a constant, ambient/ room temperature. Some oils are also sensitive to sunlight, and so it is recommended that oil is stored away from direct sunlight. It is important to store the product in a sealed container which does not provide air egress as this affects shelf life. It is not recommended that oil is stored outdoors, as this too will have an impact on the shelf life and performance of the oil, causing minor and gradual changes in temperature, exposure to sunlight, precipitation and moisture from the air – all of which are unfavourable to oil’s chemical profile.
