Feeding your family is the most important job you’ll ever do. You want to be sure that every meal you put on their plates is as nourishing as it is delicious. But when family members have different tastes and tolerances for certain foods, creating well-balanced dishes that will please everyone, every day, is no picnic. Still, there’s one ingredient you can always count on. Cobram Estate Extra Virgin Olive Oils are packed with goodness and are suitable even for those on a restricted diet.
The health benefits of Extra Virgin Olive Oil are wide-ranging, but did you know that it can also be part of a low-FODMAP eating plan? FODMAP foods are known triggers for irritable bowel syndrome, and following a low-FODMAP diet has been scientifically proven to keep IBS symptoms at bay.
Cobram Estate’s range of everyday and premium olive oils, as well as many of their flavour-infused oils, can be used in everyday cooking as part of a FODMAP-friendly diet, providing your family with the nutrients they need, while giving you peace of mind.
Food allergies occur in about one in 20 children. Though severe reactions are rare, as a parent you don’t want to take any chances with your child’s health. Decoding food labels is a tricky business, so it helps to know that Cobram Estate Extra Virgin Olive Oils contain no hidden additives or common allergens, such as nuts or gluten. In fact, the only extras you’ll find in our oils are powerful antioxidants, essential fatty acids and vitamins – and, of course, that fresh Cobram flavour.
AND SO MUCH MORE
Aside from being incredibly versatile and delicious, there are even more health-enhancing reasons to love Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
Cardiovascular health: Extra Virgin Olive Oil does not contain trans fats – which are fats that can be damaging to your heart health.
Weight Control: The Mediterranean dietary pattern, which includes Extra Virgin Olive Oil as the main fat, has been associated with a lower Body Mass Index (BMI) and reduced levels of obesity.
Inflammation: Extra Virgin Olive Oil contains several bioactives that can slow down inflammation, including oleocanthal (unique to Extra Virgin Olive Oil), which has been shown to work in a similar way to ibuprofen.
Protection from ageing: Extra Virgin Olive Oil contains high levels of natural antioxidants such as vitamin E, which can help prevent cell damage caused by free radicals.
LESS PREP, MORE FLAVOUR!
We get it – life is busy, time is precious and sometimes you don’t want to waste hours in the kitchen. Yet you still want them to be singing your praises by the mouthful – so don’t labour over long lists of ingredients, get an instant zing with every glug!
Take a shortcut to full flavour by cooking with Cobram Estate’s Infused Extra Virgin Olive Oils. Try drizzling lemon-infused oil over fish before baking or, for a kick of heat, use the chilli-infused oil in a bolognese sauce. And as an alternative to chopping up fresh garlic, check out their wonderfully aromatic garlic-infused range and add a few chopped herbs to elevate a simple salad dressing or roast vegies to virtuoso status.
