Flaxseed oil

Product of organic farming

A gourmet’s dream has become reality: years of research finally enable us to free flaxseed oil from its bitter taste. Through a unique processing technique called 3D-filtration, we have managed to eliminate the bitter constituents of flaxseed oil in a natural process.

The bitterness which flaxseed oil usually possesses is caused by a certain protein-component, a peptide. Filtering it out in a three-dimensional matrix, we take advantage of the peptide’s structure. The 3D-filtration process (see image) successfully removes all bitter constituents.

At the same time, the process ensures that the oil will retain its natural taste much longer. Nevertheless, its high proportion of Omega 3 fatty acids makes flaxseed oil potentially vulnerable to oxidation. For optimum light protection, we deliver flaxseed oil in a special light shield bottle. Captivating with its deliciously mild note of nuts, this oil cold-pressed from golden flax seeds constitutes the natural basis of BIO PLANÈTE’s Omega Color oil compositions. The high nutritional value of flaxseed oil is due to its content of roughly two thirds essential polyunsaturated fatty acids: namely alpha-linoleic acid (Omega 3) and linoleic acid (Omega 6). Since our body cannot synthesize these compounds on its own, they should be included into our diet.

Once opened, it should be kept in a refrigerator, out of the light and consumed within a short time.

Gourmet Tip

Flaxseed oil should never be heated. Enjoy it with curd cheese, jacket potatoes and young fresh vegetables. Alternatively, use it to make a Budwig crème (see above), named after Dr Johanna Budwig which is the basis for the highly acclaimed oil-protein diet.

Health Tip

Flaxseed oil is especially rich in unsaturated fatty acids. No other culinary oil has so much linolenic acid (omega 3) as flaxseed oil. This gives it an important role in cholesterol metabolism and the formation of cell membrane.

Consumer Tip

This oil is suitable for vegetarians, vegans and raw food. For the detailed product overview follow this Link.
