NEW RELEASE - WE CAN NOW OFFER OUR OWN FLAXSEED/LINSEED OIL AND WHOLESEEDS

FLAXSEED/LINSEED OIL

Flax oil is quite unique not only as a rich source of nutrition for people and animals; it has many uses beyond the kitchen and for those interested in healthy eating.

Flax oil is rich in polyunsaturated fat - Omega 3 so once pressed it is at its best fresh and consumed within 2-3 months of pressing; stored in a cool, dark place - the fridge is ideal. It is not a high heat cooking oil and should not be heated.

Our 2-in-1 label features the best before date for consuming and a second date of pressing for those who wish to use the oil for art, paints, woodworking, timber perservation or other workshop uses. So, even if you don't manage to use the whole bottle by its best before date it means you don't have to throw it away!

2-in-1 natural flax oil is cold pressed on a regular basis in a stainless steel press and then carefully filtered by - all by flaxland.

FLAXSEED CAKE FLOUR

Cold pressing flaxseed removes around two thirds of its oil content leaving the meal and around a third of the oil which sets into a hard cake. This is broken and milled into flour for bakery goods or as a direct feed for larger animals; containing all the dietary fibre and anti-oxident properties of whole milled seeds but with reduced fat content.

This flax flour is particularly suitable for adding to breads and bakery goods. Replacing around 5-7% of the wheat flour with milled flaxseed improves the nutritional content of foods, it also enhances the taste and texture in a traditional way.

Edible flax, or Linseed as farmers call it in this country, are harvested from prolific seed bearing short varieties which are not grown for their fibre content.

Cut with a conventional combine harvester, the seed is sold for human consumption, animal feed and crushing for oil.
