Barlean's Organic Oils guarantee you the highest quality, best tasting flaxseed oil anywhere, at any price. Many of the nation's leading experts on health and nutrition exclusively recommend Barlean's Organic Oils due to their understanding of the importance of high quality, biologically active essential fatty acid rich oils.
Not all flax oil is created equal. Like other oils, there is tremendous variation in quality and purity as a result of differences in how the oil is expressed. The best method of producing flax oil is by mechanically pressing out the oil through an expeller. This method produces a high quality oil compared to solvent extraction or the use of air pressure (supercritical extraction).
The down side to a mechanical press, however, is when the oil passes through the expeller a tremendous amount of pressure and heat can be generated. The higher the heat, the better the yield of oil. Temperatures generally reach 200 degree F. Interestingly, flax oil processed in this manner can still be referred to as "cold-pressed" because no external heat was added.
Although high temperatures, as well as supercritical extraction, will provide a greater quantity of oil, they produce a lower quality oil. Many manufacturers will sacrifice quality for quantity. However, consumers must be aware that because flax oil is highly polyunsaturated oil, it is extremely susceptible to damage by heat, light and oxygen. Once damaged, the oil is a rich source of toxic molecules known as lipid peroxides. These molecules can actually do the body harm and should not be ingested. Lipid peroxides are associated with an extremely bitter taste and rancidity. One of the best ways to measure the quality of a flax oil is by taste. The degree of bitterness is a close approximation of the level of lipid peroxides.
