Why Black & Gold?

Black & GoldLouise Elder started Black & Gold in the harvest of 2010, after reading about the nutritional properties of cold pressed oil. Today many of our vegetable oils are highly processed, using heat and chemicals. The overall balance of Omega 6 and Omega 3 fatty acids in the oil conforms to the World Health Organisation’s international guidelines. This means that Black & Gold may be superior to oils commonly used for cooking, such as sunflower and extra virgin olive oil, due to its favourable Omega 3 to Omega 6 ratio and antioxidant content.

By cold pressing the oil, the levels of naturally occurring antioxidants, the original flavour, viscosity and taste are beautifully preserved.

Hugh Elder chose the name Black & Gold because of the contrast of the black seed in the sheds at harvest time with the rich gold liquid that is released.  With Black & Gold sold the length and breadth of the country, in top class restaurants and fine food outlets, another fine East Lothian product is on the map.
