If there were a hit list for healthy vegetable oils, cold-pressed flaxseed oil would be right at the top! With its precious substances, its positive effects and its inimitable taste flaxseed oil has earned its place at the top. Many fans of this oil even call it "liquid gold".
Maybe because it is viscous and drips with a golden shimmer from the spoon. Flaxseed oil is pressed from flax seeds and at Pödör this process is always carried out fresh and cold. You can trust in guaranteed organic quality, careful production and absolutely fresh products.
"Liquid gold" is best served cold as heating destroys its sensitive fatty acids. It does not even need to be heated because flaxseed oil tastes simply wonderful when taken pure or dripped over finished dishes as the final touch. Its aroma is rustically nutty with light notes of hay. Traditionally flaxseed oil is served with good reason with boiled potatoes and curd cheese. Flaxseed oil can develop its effects especially well in combination with vegetable protein. One or two teaspoonfuls are enough to support the required daily intake of healthy fatty acids.
