Raw Linseed Oil is not fit for human consumption. Raw Linseed Oil also doesn’t taste very nice.
If you would like to consume Linseed or Flax Seed Oil as it is also known, we recommend our Premium Food Grade Extra Virgin Flax Seed Oil.
What is Cold Pressed Raw Linseed Oil?
Cold pressed Raw Linseed Oil is obtained by ‘squeezing’ the oil out of the seed, without the use of heat, chemicals or solvents. Cold Pressing Oils mean there is no use of heat and chemicals in the production process. Our established Ashburton plant has been dedicated to producing cold pressed Linseed/Flax Seed Oil since 1987.
Some large scale Linseed Oil producers use solvent extraction or heat extraction, exposing the seed to heat and solvents, which damages the properties of the oil. Some also refine, deodorise and bleach the oil, which produces a colourless, bland and odourless oil. This is typically known as boiled Linseed Oil.
Can Raw Linseed Oil be used on Decks?
Yes! Linseed Oil is great for helping to maintain woods natural moisture and prevent cracks.
Raw Linseed Oil also waterproofs and protects wood from the elements while leaving a stunning natural finish.
Is Flax Seed Oil the same as Linseed Oil?
No. Whilst the oil comes from the same plant, the grades of seeds used, and the extraction techniques are completely different. Globally, linseed oil is the term used for industrial grade oil used for staining wood for example. For food grade oil, the term used is flax seed oil. Therefore you will only ever find flax seed oil in health stores for human consumption.
