Our Flaxseed Oil is a 100% natural product that is only cold-pressed, left to settle and naturally filtered and then bottled.
Our process is that we press the oil and then allow the natural sediment to fall out over a week, and then we simply filter through a 100-micron filter to make it ready for bottling.
There is no refining process involved because such processes do a lot of damage to the oil. It is likely that there will be some natural settling of the oil as you would expect to see in unrefined products such as vinegar.
Before bottling all of our batches of oil are tested as part of our HACCP food safety programme.
They are also tested by our taste panel, to make sure they meet our taste standards, as there is natural variation of taste.
Therefore, we are confident that oil containing some natural settling/sediment is safe for consumption.
