Crafted using the ancient art of fermentation.
Cultured Oil from Zero Acre Farms™ is made by fermentation, the oldest culinary tradition after fire. This ancient technique creates a delicious healthy oil that is better for people and the planet.
Zero Acre oil is an all-purpose cooking oil made from rain-fed sugarcane plants, the highest yielding crop in the world. Natural fermentation breaks down raw sugar from the sugarcane and converts it to oil with a neutral taste and low carbon footprint. This method uses 99% less water than olive oil and 87% less land than canola oil.
It’s full of the same fats we’ve eaten for hundreds of thousands of years, made up of 93% healthy monounsaturated fat (making it even higher in good fat than olive oil), 4% saturated fat, and 3% polyunsaturated fat.
Good for any recipe, it has a clean taste that makes your ingredients shine, and a high smoke point for low-toxin cooking.
Zero Acre oil is sky high in heart-healthy and heat-stable monounsaturated fat. Every batch of Zero Acre oil contains 90-94% monounsaturated fat, and less than 4% polyunsaturated (including less than 3% omega-6 linoleic acid) and saturated fat. Per 14 gram (1 tablespoon) serving of Zero Acre oil, that translates to about 13g monounsaturated fat, 0.5g saturated fat, and 0.5g polyunsaturated fat.
Look up the fat profile of your specific bottle of Zero Acre oil.
- Zero Acre oil contains more than 90% heart-healthy and heat-stable monounsaturated fat, even more than olive oil and avocado oil.
- Zero Acre oil contains less of the fats that have been linked to inflammation, heart disease, and poor health, with less than 3% omega-6 linoleic acid. That’s up to 10 times less than avocado oil, olive oil, and canola oil and 20-40 times less than sunflower oil, soybean oil, and grape seed oil.
- Zero Acre oil has a high smoke point and high oxidative stability, meaning it holds up to heat and storage, and doesn’t easily break down into compounds that harm our health. In a third-party study, cooking with Zero Acre oil was found to produce significantly fewer toxic aldehydes than with other cooking oils. You can read more about the results of this test in our health report.
- Zero Acre oil is vegan, keto, kosher, Whole30 Approved®, gluten-free, soy-free, nut-free, allergen-free, pesticide-free, glyphosate-free, non-GMO, and deforestation-free.
Zero Acre oil contains natural antioxidants, including alpha-tocopherol, beta-tocopherol, gamma-tocopherol, and delta-tocopherol, collectively called “mixed tocopherols,” a form of vitamin E. Mixed tocopherols are found naturally in many foods, including olive oil, nuts, seeds, and spinach and provide protection against oxidation (rancidity).
At this time, we are not able to ship internationally. We only ship to the contiguous United States for now, but keep an eye out as we grow.
As part of our mission to improve the health of not only people, but also the planet, we use 100% recyclable aluminum packaging, in addition to a 100% recyclable kraft shipping box.
Aluminum is lighter and more sustainable than glass and infinitely recyclable. Infinitely recyclable refers to materials that can be recycled an infinite number of times without the quality of the material degrading. While the phrase “recyclable” is attached to countless products these days, that doesn’t mean they can all be recycled forever.
Today, about 75% of all aluminum produced in history, nearly a billion tons, is still in use. Studies find that consumers are also about 70% more likely to recycle aluminum than glass or plastic. And because aluminum is lighter than glass, it is more environmentally friendly in transportation.
Unlike glass (even dark green or amber-tinted bottles), aluminum packaging also completely blocks UV light, making the oil less susceptible to oxidation, rancidity, and waste. It’s also less susceptible to breaking or cracking than glass, further reducing waste.
