Pure Oils & A FABulous Giveaway

A few years ago, I began looking at our allergy-friendly foods a bit more closely. I have been an avid label reader ever since NutriSon was diagnosed with food allergies but when my own intolerances became apparent, I had to look even closer at ingredients. Being the kitchen geek that I am and always cooking, trying out new allergy-friendly products and perusing the baking aisle of the stores, I was intrigued when I came across Winona Pure Oils a few years ago. Since, then, I have never had another brand of oil in my kitchen pantry. Or, even under my bathroom sink (whaaat?! What is she talking about? Click here).

Pure Oil, Nothing Else- That's what I said and it's completely true. Winona Pure Oils are spray oils that are in a non-aerosol cans with no additives, propellants, soy or anything else, JUST OIL. As a food allergy mom, I love this and as a woman in her forties (hey, very early forties!!) having no soy added into the oils I can use safely for my entire family is a life-saver. (FYI- soy has been shown to effect hormones so we try to avoid it as much as possible). 

Tell Us, Winona! I reached out to my contact at Winona Pure Oils and they answered a few questions so I could share with all of you. 

Q: How long has Winona Pure been in business?  A: The brand has been around for five years but the family company has been in business for twenty years.

Q:  Is there anything that your oils cannot be used with or on?  A: They can be applied to any food and also many household and beauty uses. They are pure oils.

Q:  How did the idea of a pure oil come about?  A: Our owner brought the technology over from Germany and wanted to be the first company to offer a healthy spray cooking oil option after his wife beat breast cancer.

Q:  Sprayed, streamed or dripped- was this a consumer request?  A: No, this was developed for ease of use for consumers. We have an actuator that is patented.

Q:  Will you have additional products in the near future?  A: We are always developing new flavors and watching consumer trends.

Q:  Not only are your oils pure, your website states that the container can be recycled, is it true?  A: You bet!

Q:  Winona Pure is a sponsor for the Food Allergy Blogger Conference this year- tell me more!  A: We find it important to support the food allergy community because our products are safe for those who suffer from the top 8 allergens.
