A fresh, unrefined certified organic cold pressed seed oil rich in omega 3 essential fatty acids. An excellent choice for those who already have quality omega 6 sources in their diet or those wanting to build their omega 3 levels before switching to a balanced blend such as Udos Choice.
This quality nutritional oil is:
Freshly pressed in an oxygen and light-free environment, at temperatures not exceeding 36 C (97 F).
Unrefined, non deodorised and unfiltered - leaving in all the minor ingredients and cofactors that are essential for the body to utilise the oil, whilst not damaging the delicate Omega 3s. The taste and colour of oil occasionally varies from one pressing to another - proof that the oil is unrefined and unbleached, because its taste reflects the climatic conditions in which the seeds were grown.
Packaged in nitrogen flushed, amber bottles to preserve freshness.
Certified Organic - the oil is pressed from certified organic seeds, carefully selected for flavour and maturity.
Fresh, highly nutritious and rich in Omega 3 as opposed to most supermarket oils whose vital nutrients are destroyed during processing.
Produced for health and nutritional value not shelf life.
What are Essential Fats?
Scientists have given essential fats their name because the body must have them to survive, but cannot synthesize them from any other substance we eat, so a direct food source is required. Hence the name essential.
There are many kinds of fats but only two kinds of essential fats, Omega 3 and Omega 6, both of which are unsaturated fats. Each EFA is turned into several derivatives by the body, provided enough undamaged Omega 3 and Omega 6 are supplied in the right ratio.
All other fats, such as Omega 9 (monounsaturated), Omega 7 and saturated fat are non-essential because the body can produce them from sugars and starches.
