Providing Essential Fatty Acids
Flora Oils are truly cold-pressed, unrefined and unmodified. Most seeds used in our oils are grown organically by Canadian and U.S. farmers and are selected for their high quality and abundance of Essential Fatty Acids, EFAs.
EFAs such as omega-3s and omega-6s are needed by our bodies, but the body cannot make them on its own. They must be obtained from dietary sources. Using only the finest ingredients, Flora is proud to support your healthy lifestyle with a full line of Pure Premium Oils.
The quality of our oils is ensured by a third party certifying agency, Quality Assurance International (QAI). Unlike other commercially produced oils, Flora Oils are pressed in a light- and oxygen-free environment on highly sophisticated presses, where friction heat is kept well below 118°F (50°C) to produce truly cold-pressed oils that preserve the fragile EFAs.
These oils are then bottled in non-reactive dark brown glass bottles to prevent deterioration from light, and are stamped for freshness. As an additional protective measure, we use a nitrogen flush to ensure oxidation cannot occur, and that top quality is maintained.
Made with care and the utmost attention to detail, Flora Oils retain their authentic color, delicate flavor and primary nutritional characteristics. Providing valuable essential fatty acids from natural sources, these healthful, Pure Premium Oils complement a wide variety of nutritious meals.
