Organic Flaxseed Oil
Our organic brown linseed comes from Northern Kazakhstan and Russia. The suppliers are under the control of organic certification bodies that monitor the cultivation and harvesting process.
Linseed comes from the flax plant and contains about 40% oil. The linseed is pressed at a low temperature in an oil mill in Niederkrüchten, so that all the nutrients and flavor are retained. Organic Flaxseed oil has a yellow to orange color and a nice, round characteristic taste with a hint of bitterness.
Organic Flaxseed oil is particularly rich in omega-3 fatty acids, in the form of alpha-linolenic acid. Alpha linolenic acid contributes to the maintenance of normal cholesterol levels in the blood and is therefore good for your cholesterol (source Nutrition Centre). Omega 3 fatty acids are polyunsaturated fatty acids. They protect us against cardiovascular disease and are part of a healthy diet.
Organic Flaxseed Oil is used in yogurts with muesli, smoothies, or fresh juices. It is often used as a salad dressing or in cold sauces as well as being used in nutritional supplements and cosmetics.
