“When someone tells me they have tried flax oil (linseed oil) and don’t like its taste I suspect they have not tried fresh flax oil” Udo Erasmus, 1986, Fats that Heal…
A Traditional Food and A Super Food
Our Flax Farm fresh organic cold-pressed linseed oil is delicate, mild and creamy. It tastes great in all sorts of foods.
Flax Farm organic cold pressed linseed oil is simply linseed oil cold pressed and bottled in the traditional way. Our oil is made to be enjoyed fresh as a natural food. The mild flavour associates well with many foods. Linseed oil has been found to be rich in omega-3, which gives linseed oil its reputation for health.
It is not filtered or refined and we don’t use any preservatives but the gentle production method means it tastes great. We have no interest in making a long shelf-life product. Our oil is made to be enjoyed fresh, it is a versatile ingredient that can be incorporated in many everyday dishes.
Cold-pressed linseed oil has been used for centuries in Europe, especially the Saxony area of Germany where it has always been enjoyed in traditional dishes. Linseed oil with potatoes and cottage cheese is the national dish of the area.
It is nature’s richest source of Omega-3.
- Delicious in food
- Glass bottles can be chilled or even frozen
Using & storing linseed (flaxseed) oil
We recommend the bottles are used within 75 days from opening or 4 months from pressing. If it is stored in the freezer it extends its life for up to 6 months (don’t worry it doesn’t crack the bottles like water does).
We recommend an opened bottle of oil is stored in the fridge which is the ideal place because it is cold and, more importantly, dark.
Flax Farm linseed oil tastes lovely so it is a versatile ingredient that can be incorporated in many everyday dishes:
- Salad dressing
- Drizzle over porridge, soups, pasta and cooked veggies
- Blend with low-fat yoghurt and cottage cheese
- Make healthy mayonnaise
- Mash potatoes
- Hummus and other Mediterranean dips and sauce
