Camelina seed Oil, benefits


rich in Omega-3 fatty acids – camelina oil is packed with heart-healthy Omega-3's, which may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease and lower blood pressure levels
an antioxidant powerhouse – with its impressive levels of Vitamin E (a cancer-fighting antioxidant), Omega Maiden is much more stable and versatile than other vegetable oils.  Not only is it great as a salad dressing and finishing oil, but its high smoke point (475° F) also makes it ideal for cooking, baking, and light sautéing.
ideal Omega-6:Omega 3 ratio – while most vegetable oils on the market are full of Omega-6 fatty acids (the over consumption of which can harm the heart by causing inflammation), camelina oil contains more than twice as many Omega-3 fatty acids as Omega-6’s.  Omega Maiden helps to restore your Omega-6:Omega-3 ratio to an optimal, healthy natural balance.
cold- pressed -  our golden camelina seeds are mechanically pressed in small, artisanal batches to ensure the highest quality and most nutritious results.   We never use added heat, harsh chemical solvents, or any other unsafe methods.
unrefined  - unlike the majority of other “natural” cooking oils on the market, we never use any chemical or “natural” refining agents in our oil processing.  With its naturally high levels of Vitamin E, camelina oil is already well-suited for high heat applications.
certified organic - from tiny seed to golden oil, we adhere to the highest organic quality standards throughout every aspect of our artisanal batch processing.  Omega Maiden is 100% pure and in its natural and nutritious form, just as Mother Nature intended.
excellent for cooking, baking, and sautéing – with a 475° F smoke point, camelina oil is well-suited for nearly all of your cooking needs.  Use it as you would olive oil: for dressings, roasting vegetables, light sautéing, and in your favorite baked goods.
mild and nutty taste – camelina’s mild, almond-like flavor profile lends itself well to a variety of dishes.  Its pleasant taste imparts subtle flavor to your favorite recipes without overpowering other foods’ flavors.
extended shelf life – camelina oil’s high amounts of Vitamin E antioxidants not only make it a healthy cooking oil, but give it an impressive shelf life of two years.  Your bottle of Omega Maiden will keep for 18 months or longer after opening it.  (As with any oil, we recommend storing it in a cool, dark location.)
