More than 7000 years ago
The benefits of flaxseed and its products have been known for more than 7000 years. The very Latin name „Linum usitatissimum“ speaks of the versatility and usefulness of this oilseed from whose seeds flaxseed oil is obtained.
The beneficial effects were written down by Hippocrates himself
The famous Hippocrates, who is considered the father of medicine, did not give up on this fluid miracle. In his medical writings, the Corpus Hippocraticum, he wrote down in detail all the beneficial effects of linseed oil. Valuable information and recommendations relating to both external and internal use are thus traceable in the individual files.
Even the pomace, or waste product from the pressing of the oil, was not wasted. Thanks to their high nutritional value they were added to the feed for the cattle of the time.
Cultivation and origin
Linseed oil is one of the rarest oils
Linseed is a relatively well-known and widespread oilseed. In the wild, it is not to be missed. It grows to a height of almost one metre and produces beautiful sky-blue flowers with a slight white tinge.
The fruit of the flax plant is a crumbling or closed capsule. Inside the capsule are dark brown, oval-shaped grains from which the resulting oil is pressed. Up to 7 kg of flaxseed are used per litre of quality oil. This is why flaxseed oil is one of the rarest oils.
The seeds from which we press linseed oil come from India.
Composition and properties
Flaxseed oil is considered one of the richest sources of essential fatty acids. It has earned the name "oil of the third millennium ". The uniqueness of this yellow-golden oil lies primarily in its** high content of the omega-3 fatty acid α-linolenic acid, which is present in up to 55%. The omega-6 fatty acid linoleic acid makes up 13%. These acids form an indispensable part of a balanced diet and contribute to **achieving the ideal ratio of essential fatty acids intake.
Essential fatty acids cannot be created by the body on its own, so they must be consumed in the diet. Together with the other biologically active substances contained in the oil, this RAW cold-pressed oil is literally a nutrient-packed food.
While the high content of essential fatty acids is behind the exceptional nutritional properties of flaxseed oil, their significant disadvantage is that they are easily perishable. Therefore, store it in a fridge immediately upon receipt and consume within 3 months. Keep the linseed oil in its original dark glass bottle for the entire storage period.
The spoilage processes accompanying the development of a highly bitter taste are a natural characteristic of linseed oil. However, by proper storage, the onset of these processes can be delayed as much as possible.
In vegetable and legume salads, on crusty bread, in yoghurt and cottage cheese
Freshly pressed linseed oil is typical for its slightly nutty flavour with lingering bitter undertones. It is used exclusively in cold cooking because its beneficial substances are sensitive to high temperatures. It is excellent in combination with cold vegetable and legume salads. We recommend it to sprinkle on crusty bread or other favourite pastries. You can also stir a tablespoon of flaxseed oil into yogurt and cottage cheese.
