Flora Flax Oils are all natural, unre?ned and carefully cold-pressed using a unique manufacturing technique, avoiding light, heat and oxygen to protect the fragile essential fatty acids. This allows the enzymes in the seed matter to be processed at body temperature, so the essential fatty acids remain active. Before we start grinding the organic ?ax seeds, we use nitrogen gas to ?ush all the lines, pipes and tanks, ensuring optimum freshness of the ?ax oil. Flora oils are packaged in safe, non-reactive dark brown glass bottles with metal caps that have been nitrogen ?ushed and kept free of light and oxygen.
Flora Flax Oil is third-party certi?ed organic by QAI. Organic certi?cation is your assurance that products are grown and processed according to strict procedures, without the use of toxic chemicals. Organic farming promotes sustainable agriculture, including protection and conservation of soil and water.
