Project Description

Certified Organic Flaxseed Oil

Discription

Our Certified Organic Flaxseed oil is cold pressed out of the seeds of organically grown flax plant  (Linum usitatissimum). Flaxseed (sometimes named linseed) oil is a very special oil, because it is used as a nutritional supplement, it is very high in α-Linolenic acid, (an omega-3 fatty acid). The flax seeds we source can have an extremely high content of α-Linolenic acid (ALA) and is in very popular demand as a health supplement or as an ingredient in health foods such vegan- and keto snack bars and granolas. The flaxseed oil can be delivered cold-pressed, raw (refrigerated) or refined.

Applications

  • The main use of this oil is as a health supplement and additive to simple dishes as salads, juices, yoghurts and smoothies
  • In the commercial food manufacturing, this oil is added to health- and sport bars or to certain food products focused on Natural, Keto or Vegan diets

Health Benefits

  • α-Linolenic acid is one of two essential fatty acids (the other being linoleic acid), so called because they are necessary for health and cannot be produced within the human body
  • They must be acquired through diet. ALA is an omega-3 fatty acid found in seeds, especially in Chia and Flax
  • Eating Omega 3 from Flaxseed is especially good for vegans because they do not eat fish: another high source of Omega 3 is fish like salmon
