Ideas for Cooking With Flaxseed Oil

Are you interested in incorporating omega-rich flaxseed oil more into your daily diet? These recipes and tips will help you get started!. Learn more at eVitamins, the largest online health Australia superstore.

Flaxseed oil is packed with heart-healthy essential fatty acids, like omega-3. These fats, as part of a healthy diet and exercise regimen, may help reduce your risk for heart attack and stroke. They also support the eyes and central nervous system as well as the skin.

It's possible to get these benefits by taking a flaxseed oil supplement, but you can also use flaxseed oil in the kitchen to improve your health. Want to know how?

How to Cook With Flaxseed Oil
First and foremost, it's important to buy the right flaxseed oil. Look for a bottle that says the oil is cold pressed, which means the seeds are pressed at the lowest temperature they can be with no additional processing after. This oil should also be in a dark bottle, which blocks out any light that could cause the oil to break down.

Once you've found the right oil it's time to get cooking and for that, you need to remember one thing: heat is not flaxseed oil's friend. This oil tends to break down and go bad when heat is applied, which means it shouldn't be used for sauteing, roasting or frying. Think that limits your options? Just wait until we get to the recipes.

After you've prepared a delicious snack or meal with your flaxseed oil, you need to store it properly. That bottle does half the work, but you need to store this oil in the fridge to prevent it from becoming rancid. You can freeze the entire bottle to use later, but otherwise, the door is the best spot.
