Pure Linseed (Flax Seed) Oil

Proudly produced in the UK

Cold pressed means that no solvents or heat are ever used. This is because linseed is like other unsaturated nut and seed oils – if subjected to high temperatures the oil’s important health-giving properties are destroyed. High Barn’s natural process can only be compared to the production methods used to produce the best single-estate olive oils. This linseed oil is cold-pressed on the farm where it is grown in West Sussex.  How’s that for traceability!

High Barn Cold pressed oil from linseed seeds is a rich source of omega 3 fatty acid, alpha linolenic acid and omega 6 in the correct proportions. Lack of these essential fatty acids may result in a dull coat, dry itchy skin and cracking hooves.

Omega 3 fatty acids have anti-inflammatory properties so are potentially beneficial for chronic arthritis as well as regulating smooth muscle and autonomic reflexes – construction of healthy cell walls – transportation of oxygen to body cells – regulation of nerve transmissions – primary energy source for heart muscles. Its lignans support the immune system as well as circulatory and structural system.

Linseed or Flax the Definitive Answer (by Durwin Banks)

Linseed and flax are often confused, if you are a farmer in the UK growing flax you are growing a fibre plant which is used for linen. So you see there is no such thing as flaxseed oil. The flax plant is taller than linseed and is pulled by hand or nowadays by machine. So when you see products called flaxseed or flaxseed oil it will almost certainly be linseed or linseed oil. The linseed plant is shorter and generally has a bigger seed with more oil. The latin name for linseed Linum usitatissimum means most useful, and it has been used in all its forms for many thousands of years.
