HUMAN SUPPLEMENT AND COOKING OIL
You may already know the importance of polyunsaturated (omega-3s and 6s) and monounsaturated fats (omega-9s) to a healthy diet, but you may not know that the balance of these fats is just as significant to your good health. If not balanced by omega-3, too much of certain types of omega-6s in the diet can result in inflammation, which is associated with a number of health concerns, including asthma and allergies, heart disease, arthritis, and diabetes. Wild Gold Camelina Oil has an ideal balance with a 2:1:2 ratio of omega-3, -6, and -9, respectively.
Marinades, Vinaigrettes, Sauces
The smooth, nutty flavor blends really well with other flavors to create sauces, dips, and vinaigrettes. It’s ideal for marinades since it doesn’t congeal. And it has a shelf life of two years—much longer than other omega-3 oils such as flax and chia.
Cooking, Stir-Fry, Deep-Fry
Beyond its use as a dietary supplement, camelina oil is also a healthy, incredibly versatile cooking oil. With an extremely high flame point of 475° F (much higher than olive, coconut, canola, and grapeseed), it’s well-suited for moderate to high levels of heat making it perfect for stir- and deep-frying.
Moisturizer For Skin And Hair
Camelina oil is also used in beauty routines to nourish and heal skin. The Vitamin E and omega fatty acids help improve skin elasticity, repair damaged skin cells, and prevent free radical damage. And it’s a great hair moisturizer because it provides nutrition to the scalp and gets rid of dry skin, dandruff, and flakiness.
