Cooking oil is a staple in the Filipino homestead and for more than three quarters, there is one brand name that is most often associated with it – Baguio Oil.
Then and now, Baguio Pure Vegetable Oil has been the trusted partner in many kitchens. Its product line consisting of different healthy cooking oils caters to varying preferences and cooking needs. Currently available in the market are Baguio Corn Oil, Baguio Palm Oil, Baguio Coconut Oil, and Baguio Canola Oil.
Made with 100% pure coconut oil that comes from dried coconut meat or copra. Unlike other nutritional oils, which turn rancid easily, coconut oil has a long shelf life and is highly resistant to oxidation.
The health benefits of coconut oil include boosting your immune system, maintaining cholesterol levels, assisting in weight loss, and promoting digestive health. It is also known to boost energy. One kilogram of coconut oil is said to furnish 9,500 calories of energy.
Baguio Coconut Oil perfectly complements your family’s healthy diet. Aside from its many health benefits, coconut oil has a smooth, sweet taste that enhances the flavour of food. It makes for a good alternative to butter in baked goods and is also delicious in savoury dishes, like curries and laing.
Canola oil comes from the crushed seeds of the canola plant. It is a heart-healthy oil. Low in saturated fat and very high in healthy unsaturated fats, the golden-colored canola oil is among the healthiest of cooking oils. Its neutral flavour and moderately high smoke point makes it one of the most versatile, multi-purpose oils today.
Baguio Canola Oil can be used in a number of dishes and cooking methods. It is ideal for sautéing, stir-frying, grilling and baking. You may add it to salad dressings, sauces and marinades, and even use it to coat pans for non-stick baking. Substituting it for other fats like butter and margarine in your recipes is an easy way to help your family eat healthier.
Baguio Corn Oil is full of good fats beneficial to your heart. More than a quarter of the total fats in corn oil are monounsaturated fatty acids known as MUFAs that play a role in lowering your LDL or bad cholesterol. LDL clogs your arteries, making you susceptible to cardiovascular diseases.
Corn oil is also composed of polyunsaturated fatty acids more commonly called PUFAs. Over half of the fat in corn oil is polyunsaturated fat which is also important in stabilizing cholesterol and protecting your heart. Omega-6 fatty acids and omega-3s are some of the PUFAs in corn oil. Both are essential in your diet as these are not produced by your body.
Aside from good fats, Baguio Corn Oil contains a powerful antioxidant – Vitamin E that fights free radicals. Without vitamin E, free radicals would be free to stick onto healthy cells and eventually cause chronic conditions like heart disease and certain cancers. Vitamin E is also essential in maintaining a healthy diet and boosting the immune system.
Baguio Corn Oil is great to use for frying because of its high smoke point and is a good substitute for other types of oil. Because of its creamy, buttery taste, it is usually incorporated in margarines and salad dressings.
Made from 100% premium refined palm oil that is a rich source of antioxidants. It is the richest vegetable oil source of tocotrienols, a potent form of Vitamin E, which strengthens the immune system and protects skin cells from toxins and UV radiation.
Palm oil is a common cooking ingredient in the tropical belt of Africa, Brazil, and Southeast Asia. It is often used for baked goods and packaged food. Extracted from the pulp of the fruit of the oil palm, it has a natural reddish-orange color due to a high amount of Beta-Carotene—the same nutrient that gives tomatoes, sweet potatoes, carrots, and other fruits and vegetables their rich colors.
Baguio Palm Oil works well with deep-fried and stir-fried dishes because of its high smoke point. The quality of palm oil does not diminish under extremely high heat.
