Our delicious cold-pressed flaxseed oil has a delicate nutty flavour and can be taken straight from the spoon or drizzled over salads, vegetables or pastas. It can also be used in dips, dressings and desserts. But flaxseed oil doesn't just taste great - it is also the richest known plant source of alpha-linolenic acid (omega 3) as well as being a great source of omegas 6 and 9.
Omega 3 fats are vital for health and alpha linolenic acid (ALA) contributes to the maintenance of normal blood cholesterol levels (the beneficial effect is obtained from a daily intake of 2g of ALA). If you are vegan, vegetarian or simply not eating two portions of fish a week or regularly eating nuts and seeds, using flaxseed oil is a great way to obtain your essential omega 3 fats.
Made using 100% certified organic flax seeds, we use a gentle cold pressing method to extract this beautiful golden oil. Essential fatty acids are easily destroyed by heat and processing, so the cold-pressing method ensures that the oil retains its essential nutrients.
This high strength flaxseed oil is rich in the omega 3 fatty acid, alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) with each 5ml teaspoon providing a whopping 2900mg. ALA is proven to contribute to maintenance of normal blood cholesterol levels with a daily intake of 2g (2000mg). The oil is not only rich in ALA but also provides 600mg Linoleic acid (Omega 6) and 720mg Monounsaturates (Omega 9) per 5ml teaspoon.
Flaxseed oil is a great vegan and vegetarian-friendly way of obtaining your essential omega 3 fats in the form of alpha linolenic acid (ALA) in addition to omegas 6 and 9.
Flaxseed oil is suitable for the whole family and its delicious nutty flavour means it is very versatile. Essential fatty acids (EFAs) are so-called because the body cannot make them and so we must obtain them from the diet. This oil is ideal for anyone wishing to maintain healthy cholesterol levels.
