Blodyn Aur - Welsh Rapeseed Oil
Blodyn Aur (translated to 'Golden Flower') is the only Welsh Rapeseed Oil which is Welsh grown, Welsh pressed and Welsh bottled!
Launched in April 2010, Blodyn Aur is run by farmers and friends Llyr Jones, Bryn Jones and Medwyn Roberts. Together they have set-up a modern oil pressing facility on Llyr’s farm near the village of Llanfihangel Glyn Myfyr, near Corwen, in North Wales. The oil is cold pressed to protect and enhance its goodness and quality. It is rich in omega-3, vitamin E and has less than half the saturated fat of olive oil.
Blodyn Aur's green credentials are second to none. Llyr's farm produces its own electricity from a micro wind turbine and a small hydro-electric unit powered by one of the farm's rivers. It's this power that presses the locally grown seeds to produce Blodyn Aur oil. They have 0% waste from the pressing as all the feed that's left over, usually called the rapemeal, is given to local cattle. It's a valuable feed for cattle as the cold-press technique means that the rapemeal has a much higher oil content compared to what's left from conventional solvent extracted rapeseed oil.
