Why is Omega-3 from rapeseed oil important?

The Research Institute for Child Nutrition strongly recommends rapeseed oil for baby nutrition because of its high Omega-3 content, amongst other benefits.

We all know that what matter most for the healthy development of a baby is the love and care from their parents Only babies who receive loving attention and active support in their discovery of the world, will be able to develop their full physical and mental potential. However, it is equally clear that the correct supply of nutrients from a balanced diet play an important role.

Omega-3 fatty acids are receiving more and more attention. In infancy, they are especially important for the normal development of brain and nerve cells. In the first 2 years of life, the brain grows unusually fast, so a regular intake of Omega-3 fatty acids is crucial.

One of the best vegetable sources of Omega-3 fatty acids is rapeseed oil. Rapeseed oil contains particularly high amounts of Omega-3 – ten times more than olive oil, for example. The favourable fatty acid structure of rapeseed oil is very effective in helping the body to process these essential Omega-3 fatty acids. A positive thing to note is that rapeseed oil, when used in baby food, is mild enough to not affect the taste of the food – a clear advantage for our little gourmets.

A question for Claus Hipp:

Can you guarantee organic quality, even for rapeseed oil?

Yes, of course. Our commitment to organic food means that all ingredients are top organic quality. And that goes for rapeseed oil as well. This ensures that no genetically engineered produce is involved, in line with the Organic Farming Regulation. Personally, I think that genetically modified ingredients should not go into any food, let alone baby food. 

We vouch for this with our name.
