5 Reasons Why You Need Zero Acre Oil
Forget everything you know about healthy fats. This new cooking oil is made from the ancient art of fermentation and might be healthier than even olive oil. Find out why chefs all over the U.S. are tossing their formerly favorite oils in favor of this!
1. Zero Acre Oil is High in Heart-Healthy Fats
Zero Acre oil is a new kind of cooking oil that contains even more heart-healthy and heat-stable monounsaturated fat than olive oil and avocado oil, with up to 10 times less linoleic acid (an omega-6 fat linked to inflammation). Monounsaturated fats hold up well to high heat, are not highly susceptible to breaking down into harmful compounds, and are good for your health.
2. It’s Ultra Low in Inflammatory Fats
Omega-6 linoleic acid is a type of fatty acid found in massive amounts in most prevalent cooking oils like soybean oil and sunflower oil. Unfortunately, high linoleic acid intake is connected to an unprecedented increase in health issues, from obesity to heart disease and more. Zero Acre Oil contains between 1.8-3% linoleic acid, depending on the batch. That’s up to 10 times less than olive oil, avocado oil, and canola oil and 20-40 times less than soybean oil, sunflower oil, and grape seed oil.
3. It Has a High Smoke Point and Doesn’t Break Down Easily
Most cooking oils have a surprisingly low smoke point, which means they break down and start smoking in the pan even at low temperatures. With Zero Acre oil, you won’t run the risk of burning your food or smoking up the kitchen! And because Zero Acre oil has a higher oxidative stability than most other oils, you won’t have to worry about it easily breaking down into inflammatory compounds like aldehydes, in the cooking pan and in your body.
4. It Highlights the REAL Taste of Your Food
Zero Acre oil is naturally neutral tasting, so it lets the taste of your food shine. That means no grassy, green, or earthy flavors from olive oil or avocado oil. Just a light, clean taste that makes your eggs taste eggier and gives your veggies the perfect, non-greasy crisp. As a bonus, Zero Acre oil stays liquid in the refrigerator, making it perfect for homemade dressings and infused oils.
5. It Has a Tiny Environmental Footprint
Vegetable oils are leading drivers of deforestation, land use, water consumption, and biodiversity loss. Compared to the most prevalent vegetable oil in the U.S. (soybean oil), Zero Acre oil emits 86% fewer greenhouse gases, consumes 83% less water, and uses 90% less land. Zero Acre oil requires 88% less water than palm oil, 90% less water than sunflower oil, and 300 times less water than olive oil. It also comes in a 100% recyclable BPA-free aluminum bottle, offering a more sustainable option than plastic or glass.
About Cultured Oil
Cultured Oil is a new kind of cooking oil made by fermenting sugarcane. High in heart-healthy and heat-stable monounsaturated fat, Cultured Oil has a sky-high smoke point of 485°F and a clean neutral taste. It also has one of the lowest linoleic acid levels on the market at less than 3%. Unlike avocado oil or olive oil, you can use it for everything from salad dressings (that won't clump in the fridge) to sauteing and deep frying.
