Even medical professionals agree it is the healthier choice.

When preparing meals for those dearest to you, choosing the right cooking oil is of utmost importance. Sure, factors such as price, taste, and smoke points must also be considered, but the most discerning moms know that when choosing the best cooking oil for their family, the most crucial factor is its health benefits, specifically its heart health benefits.

Scientific studies have proven that the use of canola oil for everyday cooking has remarkable heart-health benefits. That’s why doctors and other health professionals recommend that it be a staple in every kitchen. 

Not all canola oils, however, are created equal. If you want not only a healthy heart but also a peaceful mind knowing that what you are using is of the highest quality, choose only the leading and most trusted canola oil brand: Jolly Heart Mate Canola Oil—the No. 1 brand and the only brand to trust when it comes to cooking for those closest to your heart. 

Registered nutritionist-dietician Thina Asis shares that Jolly Heart Mate Canola Oil, which is made from the crushed seeds of the plant with the same name, has essential fatty acids which promote heart health. “Jolly Heart Mate Canola Oil has Omega-3 and Omega-6 which help lower cholesterol and blood pressure,” she explains. 

Several other registered nutritionist-dieticians such as Christine Alcantara and April Manlangit echo the same information and are also advocates of Jolly Heart Mate Canola Oil. “It has the lowest level of saturated fats among all types of cooking oil,” Christine says. “This helps minimize the risks of heart diseases and stroke.”

It also has a high smoke point, making it ideal for frying. “Smoke point refers to when the oil begins to break down and produce chemicals which may be harmful to one’s health,” April explains. “So it’s important to choose a cooking oil which has a high smoke point.”

Makati-based mom Sheh Lizano says that using Jolly Heart Mate Canola Oil every day is an easy decision. The 48-year-old mom of four shares that several diseases run in her family’s blood, including diabetes, hypertension, and heart failure. She, of course, doesn’t want her kids to inherit any of these.

At first, she tried to avoid fried foods, a favorite in their home and in many other Pinoy households. “Pero nung nalaman ko ang advantage na maganda sa puso ang Jolly Heart Mate Canola Oil, we use it every day kapag nagluluto,” she says. Sheh and her family can now enjoy eating their favorite fried dishes worry- and guilt-free.

Aside from frying, Jolly Heart Mate Canola Oil is also ideal for baking and roasting. Because of its neutral taste, instead of overpowering the other ingredients, Jolly Heart Mate Canola Oil helps bring out its full flavors, making a healthy and hearty meal.

Meanwhile, Grace Escueta from Laguna has grown more conscious of the meals she prepares for her family. 

Talagang inaalam ko kung ano ang dapat i-prepare na ingredients, lalong higit kung anong gagamitin kong cooking oil,” says the young mom of two. “Noong na-introduce sa ‘kin si Jolly Heart Mate Canola Oil, doon ko natutunan lalo ang importance ng maganda ang ginagamit mong oil in preparing meals for your family.”

Even celebrity mom and wife Carmina Villarroel has only one choice when it comes to cooking oil: Jolly Heart Mate Canola Oil. “Sigurado ako sa quality and I’m sure that when I cook, ‘di ko lang napapasaya ang mga puso nila, na-proprotektahan ko pa,” she enthuses. 

Carmina’s husband Zoren Legaspi and their twins Mavy and Cassy cannot agree more. “Mahilig din ako magluto and when I cook, I only trust the No. 1—Jolly Heart Mate,” Zoren says.

Mavy and Cassy have also started getting active in the kitchen and they already know which cooking oil brand they should use. “Heart Mate lang ang cooking oil sa kusina namin,” Mavy shares. “Heart Mate for life kaming pamilya,” adds his sister. 

On a final note, Carmina, who is a smart mom herself, asks with a smile: “Why should you settle when you can choose the best?”

Jolly Heart Mate Canola Oil became the No. 1 canola oil brand in 2011 and is still the No. 1 brand today, making it the most trusted cooking oil of its kind in the country. Its consistent quality and heart health benefits make it the brand of choice for Filipino moms, medical professionals, and even trusted celebrities.
