From my personal nutrition notes:

Using rapeseed oil in place of butter reduces hydrogenised fat. Rapeseed oil is one of the healthiest cooking oils available. High in Omega 3 and Omega 6 it is great for maintaining skin, nerve, heart and brain health. The peach juice provides moisture and thickness as well as binding effects, therefore reducing the total amount of butter or liquid such as milk or oil that is required.
