At Kerfoot, we are joining the food and beverage industry in celebrating 50 years of National Nutrition Month. As a company, we are proud that our diverse and innovative range of top-quality oils are the ideal ingredient and raw material to assist you in developing and formulating healthier food options.
As an annual event, National Nutrition Month was launched in 1973 by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. The initial aim of the campaign was to provide insights and solutions that would furnish consumers with the relevant information to up their nutritional intake through informed food choices. But it has a key role to play in how new product developers can reimagine their product formulations too – offering consumers healthier food choices, particularly when developing processed foodstuffs.
To celebrate its 5th decade, the organisation’s theme for 2023 is ‘Fuel for the Future.’1 Eating with sustainability in mind is increasingly on the radar of informed consumers and offers a dual benefit: to nourish themselves and protect the environment. At Kerfoot, we are proud that our products comprise a trusted range of bulk, packed and specialist food oils that are sustainably sourced and produced to achieve these goals.

Nutrition & Supplements
While the oil industry often gets a bad rap, vegetable oils in fact provide a number of nutrients the body needs, including essential fats and vitamins. They also offer a wide variety of ways to flavour foods while boosting its nutrient content. Essential fatty acids are nutrients necessary for health, and the most trusted and stable forms is ingesting these from foodstuffs. The two primary types are omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. Linoleic acid, an omega-6 fat, is also found in flax, sesame, sunflower, safflower and soybean oils.
