For the Love of Linseed

Another ingredient in Flora Margarine is linseed oil, also known as Flaxseed. What makes linseed oil great is its rich in omega-3, an essential fatty. Read on for a basic breakdown of its benefits.

One of The World’s Healthiest Foods

Good heart health is vital for everyone. But a healthy heart requires the right ratio of omega-3 fatty acids and omega-6 fatty acids in your diet. Which is why we use linseed oil to make Flora – so that every spread of Flora carries the best of both. A rich source of both essential omega oils, Flora has the perfect blend of omega-3 and omega-6 in it to make it as easy as possible for you to care for your heart.

Here are two examples of how it can help: 

Lower Cholesterol

Discovered by researchers in the USA, at the Iowa State University’s Nutrition and Wellness Research Centre, linseed has the ability to reduce cholesterol due to its combination of omega 3 and 6. A heart healthy benefit that reduces the risk of heart disease and helps to prevent stokes.

Improved Heart Health

Low in saturated fats and high in polyunsaturated fats, as well as essential oils omega-3 and omega-6, linseed is great for your heart health. Precisely why it’s in Flora, because we believe the road to a healthy life is through a healthy heart.
