False flax oil is produced by the cold pressing of the mature seeds of the false flax. The oil contains a high proportion of unsaturated fatty acids, mainly alpha-linolenic acid, an omega-3 fatty acid. The acid is very healthy for the human body, but it can not produce itself and is therefore dependent on the direct intake. The false flax oil is certified according to the EU guidelines as a “guaranteed traditional specialty” and is widely used by individuals.


Well-dosed, false flax oil is well suited as a feed. Although still unknown as edible oil, its high content of omega-3 fatty acids has a positive effect on the immune system, cholesterol levels regulation and arthrotic symptoms. Furthermore it also promotes wound healing. In the cosmetics industry, false flax oil is present in soap. In the industry the oil is used for the production of varnishes, paints, lubricants and lamp oil. It can also be used as fuel for airplanes.
