Story behind the recipe

Did you know? HOLL stands for High Oleic – Low linolenic. This means that on the one hand it has a high oleic acid content (high oleic), but at the same time a low proportion of linolenic acid (low linolenic). In classic rapeseed oil, the ratio of fatty acids is exactly reversed, which is healthy. However, the oil cannot withstand high temperatures. The fatty acid structure of HOLL rapeseed oil, on the other hand, ensures the stability of the fat even at high temperatures: if it is heated, it retains its nutritionally good properties and the fatty acids are not destroyed.
