QUINTESENS is a French company animated by the desire to change our eating habits, which are responsible for a large number of diseases (cholesterol, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, cognitive decline…). We want to give meaning to our food by reinventing different categories of food products.
To start, QUINTESENS has launched the first range of organic, healthy cooking oil blends especially developed by nutritionists and naturopaths. They cover our specific nutritional needs (Omega-3, DHA, Vitamin E...) according to our age and condition (pregnant and nursing women, babies 4-36 month, kids 3-9 years, teens and adults up to 50 years, and adults over 50 years). These blends are unique in Europe.
The QUINTESENS oils are the only blends naturally rich in DHA (a marine Omega-3 notably essential to brain and heart), and based on the official recommended nutritional intakes for these five different populations.
Each bottle combines, in the right proportions, the benefits of 4-5 different high quality organic vegetable oils, as well as deodorized and purified fish oil.
These oil blends can simply be used in substitution of usual cooking oils, for cold preparations or during cooking.
The QUINTESENS dressings, called “Les ASSAISONNETTES”, are based on a well-balanced oil blend providing the essential Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids and vitamin E, as well as delicious health food ingredients such as ginger, lemon, turmeric, paprika, garlic, thyme…
It is the first line of certified organic healthy and gourmet dressings which combines Health, Pleasure, Naturality and Practicality.
The recipes have been imagined by a famous culinary creator from the South of France, Valérie Cupillard. Our dressings only contain 100% natural raw and organic ingredients, 0% additive (not even natural additives).
Three flavours are available (“Intense”, “Provençale”, “Tonique”) for seasoning of various cold and hot dishes: raw vegetables, salads, cooked vegetables, potatoes, rice, quinoa, pasta, marinades for fish or meat…
Because packagings have a strong environmental impact, QUINTESENS has chosen to innovate. Recently, the brand has launched the first organic extra virgin olive oil in an eco-friendly Tetra Prisma cardboard bottle in order to preserve the environment. This pack is 100% recyclable and its life cycle (from production to recycling) emits three times less greenhouse gas than a classic glass bottle!
Opaque and vacuum packed, the Tetra Prisma Aspetic pack keeps the oil away from light and air, and also longer protects its nutritional values and freshness.
This organic extra virgin olive oil comes from a Tunisian traditional cooperative where olives are hand-picked. QUINTESENS has selected two sorts of local organic olives, the Chetoui and the Chemlali. Deliciously fruity, this olive oil tastes neither bitter nor sour.
