Pressed Purity Flaxseed oil is cold pressed from Australian grown flaxseeds. Flaxseed Oil may also be referred to as Linseed Oil.
This oil contains twice the Omega 3 (60%) as fish oil making it the highest natural source of essential fatty acids. This oil is most commonly used as a nutritious and nutty addition to salads or smoothies. Flaxseed Oil is not suitable for cooking.
Store in the refrigerator for a longer lasting fresh taste. Suitable for storage in the freezer as it will not set hard - it will only be thickened until defrosted.
We do not recommend the use of flaxseed oil in cooking and baking as heating this oil will cause a bitter flavour and damage its Omega 3 properties.
Cold pressing refers to oils obtained through pressing fruit or seeds with a modern steel press. Although pressing produces heat through friction, the oilseeds are not precooked and consequently the oil is considered cold pressed - in contrast to large scale solvent extraction and refining operations which strip the oil of natural antioxidants, vitamins and flavour.
