Grand Oil gets p rofessional endorsement


Grand Pure Soya Oil, a quality product from Grand Cereals Limited, a subsidiary of UAC Nigeria plc, has got endorsement of the Nutrition Society of Nigeria (NSN) for its quality nutrition.

This development is coming after the endorsement by the Nigerian Heart Foundation (NHF) after series of analyses, and facility visit by the society to the company’s plant.

Grand Cereals Limited parades leading brands and has been at the forefront of promoting wellness by offering excellent value to consumers.

Speaking at the endorsement certificate presentation, Tope Banjo, marketing manager of the company, commended the Society for its steadfastness in promoting the well-being of Nigerians through continued dietetic/nutrition research and healthy-living advocacy.

He also used the forum to educate consumers on the sources and types of vegetable cooking oils, saying that bad oils with saturated fatty acids do congeal or ‘sleep’ at low temperatures and may also inhibit the absorption of some vitamins and nutrients.

He urged consumers to be weary of so called ‘heart-friendly’ oils that have flooded the Nigerian Market and to check for the source of their cooking oil on the labels, stating that most of them are made from Palm Oil (Olein) which is not as healthy as Soya Oil.

According to him, Grand Pure Soya Oil is made from carefully selected Soya bean seeds. “It neither foams nor fumes, does not congeal or ‘sleep’ even at very low temperatures. It is cholesterol free making it an ideal choice for individuals that are health-conscious.”

Grand Pure Soya Oil is the first cooking oil to be endorsed by the Nutrition Society of Nigeria, same way as it was the first to be endorsed by Nigeria Heart Foundation.

It comes in 0.75, 2.75 PET bottles, 4, 10 and 18 litres jerry-cans. It is available in shops and malls across the country.
