Looking for a new way to add some distinctive flavor, as well as a healthful boost, to your next salad or pasta dish? Flora Pumpkin Seed Oil brings a characteristic nutty flavor to the table, while Flora's unique method of cold pressing helps retain the original rich flavor. On top of providing omega-6s and -9s, the dark color of the natural, unrefined oil signifies a high content of chlorophyll.
When oil begins to smoke it starts to breakdown, the process is called thermal oxidation. The smoke indicates that carcinogens are being released into the air and free radicals are forming in the oil. Oil that begins to smoke should ideally be discarded and replaced with fresh oil for optimal health and taste. Beware of highly processed supermarket oils. They are made with a long shelf life in mind, rather than considerations of dietary health.
