Flaxseed oil is an excellent finishing oil for grilled meats, boiled vegetables, cooked grains, salad dressings, a bowl of soup, or even smoothies or shakes.
The mild, clean, crisp flavour of the oil makes it easy to mix with other oils. If you’re looking for a bolder flavour, the slightly nutty flavour pairs well with many different dishes.
Flaxseed oil is full of nutrients and is a vegan source of potassium and Omega-6 and Omega-3 fatty acids.
Fun fact: It is also the main component in a relatively new process of seasoning cast iron pans and skillets, since it belongs to a group of “drying” oils that form protective barriers on hard surfaces.
Flaxseed oil is expected to gain market share from 2021-2027 due to the rising popularity for its use in dressings, meat preparations and as a culinary ingredient. In North America it is expected to also increase its market share due to the significantly high demand by health and beauty conscious consumers
