Effect

Linseed oil is characterized by an extremely high content of alpha-linolenic acid, which makes up more than half of the oil's fatty acids. Alpha-linolenic acid is a plant-based omega-3 fatty acid. An essential health effect is therefore to improve the omega-3 supply of the body. Since it is also low in linoleic acid (an omega-6 fatty acid), flaxseed oil is very well suited to shifting the ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids in the diet towards omega-3. This has been recommended by nutritional science for years because today's diet contains too many omega-6 fatty acids. For this reason, more omega-3 fats should be consumed regularly.
The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has already approved the following health claims for ALA in the Health Claim Regulation: ALA contributes to maintaining normal blood cholesterol levels. Just 2 teaspoons (3 g each) cover the daily requirement of 2 g ALA for an adult. Ensure a varied and balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle.

use

Linseed oil can be enjoyed on its own or in dressings, dips and marinades, as well as in breakfast muesli and yoghurt with fruit. The oil is not recommended for frying, but only for steaming to preserve the valuable essential fatty acids.

The linseed oil is also very suitable for skin care or in oral mouth care. (See After Brush in Oral Mouth Concept)

The wood can also be maintained with it, it leaves a very pleasant and mild smell. Oil that has exceeded its minimum durability may also be used for this purpose. Simply apply a thin layer to the wood with a brush or cloth and leave to soak in for a day.

What is the best way to store oils?

All cooking oils should be stored protected from light. Particularly sensitive oils with a high proportion of polyunsaturated fatty acids should be stored in the refrigerator and used within 8 weeks.
Linseed oil should always be tightly sealed and stored in a cool and dark place to protect its valuable ingredients in the best possible way.
Tip: You can freeze oils. This slows down the oxidation process and extends the shelf life. After thawing in the refrigerator, the oil regains its regular shelf life - but only if it was frozen immediately after purchase.

Tip:

Also try our linseed flour made from gently de-oiled organic linseed. It is suitable for baking and refining sauces, mueslis and smoothies.
