Our “Perfectly Pressed” Organic Culinary Linseed Oil from The Linseed Farm
Savour the delicious nutty flavours and benefits of this carefully produced oil.
Using the most knowledgeable producers is particularly important with this oil as it is unstable and prone to damage with exposure to heat, light and air.
- Culinary linseed oil is obtained by pressing the ripened seeds of the flax plant.
- Also known as flax seed oil or flax oil
- Great source of Omega-3 (take note vegetarians & vegans!)
- It has a pretty short shelf life, so check the smell after a few weeks and if it has an unpleasant or rancid nose, say bye-bye!
- Do not use this oil for cooking
- Looking after this oil: Keep bottles that are being stored, open or unopened in the freezer! Just decant small amounts that are going to be used within 2 weeks in the fridge.
