Whole Linseed seed and the pure golden Flax Seed Oil after pressing


Oil Extraction Method : Cold-Pressing

At Bio Oils we extract our Flax Seed Oils using a controlled cold-pressing method, and have a well-established cold-pressing plant.

This is regarded as the best method of extracting quality Flax Seed Oil. Most other methods of oil extraction expose the seed to heat and solvents, which damage the health giving properties of the oil.


Flax Seed Oil that is cold pressed usually has a distinct colour, flavour and aroma. Some large-scale Flax Seed Oil producers often remove these characteristics by refining, de-odourising and bleaching the oil, to produce a standardised, bland and odourless oil. Bio Oils choose not to do this, and only offers unrefined oils…..100% pure, fresh and natural.

We have dedicated organic and conventional facilities and equipment, which are all thoroughly cleaned down after each batch of seed is pressed...this prevents any cross-contamination and guarantees the traceability of each line.
