Stock seed oil-free options for Australian supermarkets and clearly label them as such
There have been recent discussions regarding seed oils and the negative health effects of consuming them in large doses such as: leading to obesity, inflammation of joints, possible cognitive decline over the long-term, and many other things.Sign PetitionSign Petition
I request that Australian supermarkets implement a plan to stock seed oil-free prepackaged alternatives and clearly mark them as such for people that would prefer to purchase them as well as allowing people to filter out products with seed oils when shopping online.
This would give people a better chance of choosing what they want to ingest, and yes, you can check the ingredients for these oils but I think it would be a great thing to actively stock items that market themselves as having been produced without the use of these products.
Many people would gladly shop at supermarkets that give them an easy way to tell which products they'd like to avoid in this regard and making it easier for them would be much appreciated as it is hard to find food (pre-packaged especially) that does not contain some form of seed oil.
Eating a handful of sunflower seeds, nuts, or legumes is not going to have a negative effect on your health but the point here is that the massive quantities of oil derived from these products that are in many pre-packaged food items can be detrimental to one’s health.
A further step in this regard is to instead stock items that use healthy oils in their manufacturing process such as: Extra virgin olive oil, coconut oil, ghee (clarified butter), butter, tallow, etc.
