Hanfood’s Cold Pressed Flaxseed Oil has been processed at a minimum temperature to preserve its nutritional integrity. High temperatures are used to increase product yield, but results in a worse flavor profile and decreased nutrition. When considering purchasing flaxseed oil, the cold pressed variety is usually more expensive but retains better quality, taste and health benefits.
Flax seed is the richest vegetarian source of omega-3 essential fatty acids (EFA ‘s)， which our bodies cannot produce and must obtain through diet. Flax seed oil is unique because it contains both omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids that are necessary for maintaining good health.
Flax seed oil contains 2X the amount of omega-3 than the equivalent volume of fish oil!
