ALVENAT is a company created in October 2006 which specialises in the production of 1st cold-pressed rapeseed oil.
First cold-pressed rapeseed oil is rich in Omega-6 and also contains 9% of Omega-3 ALA fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids are good for the heart. They cannot
be synthesised by the organism and must come from food. They are called "essential" fatty acids.
It also contains a non-negligible amount of vitamin E: a valuable vitamin with antioxidant properties. Vitamin E protects the membrane that surrounds the
body's cells, especially red blood cells and white blood cells.
Rapeseed oil is also very rich in vitamin K, which plays an important role in blood coagulation and also contributes to bone formation. It prevents calcium
from laying deposits in arteries and fixes it where it is needed, in the bones.
At ALVENAT, first cold-pressed oils are so-called virgin or extra virgin oils obtained by simple mechanical pressing. There is no refining process. Only
virgin oils can be described as natural.
Not refining means preserving the essential fatty acids (omega 3 & 6), antioxidants (vitamin E), phytosterols and polyphenols naturally present in the
Refined oil requires a heavy industrial process during which a chemical treatment is used in order to ensure better conservation and flexibility of use.
Tiny chemical particles remain after this type of treatment. Refined oil preserves the same composition in terms of fatty acids but loses most of its
antioxidants and other unsaponifiables (polyphenols, phytosterols, etc.).
