Barlean’s organic Flax Oils are ideal for those who prefer a vegan Omega-3 option. Flax oil contains more Omega-3 fatty acids than any other botanical in the world. Yet that high content of extremely degradable fats means it can spoil if not handled just right. Over-pressing of flax oil is common, which unduly heats the oil, damages its integrity, diminishes its nutritional value, and ruins its naturally nutty flavor. Our proprietary, truly cold-pressed technology protects the perishable flax oil from the damaging effects of heat, light and oxygen. Our organic, pure flax oils are sourced from premium North American flaxseed only, are packaged in opaque bottles to prevent oxidation, and are freshness dated to ensure the very highest quality and best taste.
