Flax Seed Oil is derived from the crushed seeds of the flax plant, a food and fibre plant grown in the cooler regions of the world.
The oil the flax plant produces is colourless to yellowish and is obtained by means of 'cold pressing.' This process negates the need for heat or solvent extraction and results in a pure oil with most of its nutritional goodness intact.
Flax Seed Oil contains high levels of the essential fatty acid omega-3 which has been proven to be beneficial to health by lowering cholesterol levels.
Take one teaspoon per day from the spoon or simply add to food to improve both the flavour and nutritional content of your meal.
Do not heat as this will greatly reduce the beneficial effects and destroy many of the EFA's. Add to food once removed from direct heat.
Air, heat and light will damage your oil so keep it refrigerated and tightly sealed. Rancid flax seed oil is harmful and should not be consumed. Cold pressing increases shelf-life and if stored correctly it can stay fresh for up to 12 months. Do not freeze.
