Linseed Oil (अलसी का तेल)

Linseed oil is the oil extracted from flax seeds. Now, you may be wondering that isn’t the oil from flax called flaxseed oil. Yes, that’s true. Both flaxseed oil and linseed oil start out from the same source – the flax seeds. However, the processing is quite different which leads to marked differences between these oils. Linseed oil is used for various industrial purposes and paint jobs whereas flaxseed oil is fit for human consumption.

Flaxseed oil is the more “natural” kind of oil and it is extracted by cold pressing. This keeps its nutrients in their original form, making it fit for human consumption, Both linseed oil and flaxseed oil are extremely vulnerable to rancidity. They have poor shelf lives and must be refrigerated and kept away from sunlight at all times.

Linseed oil may lead to a slight yellowing of the product over which it is used, but this diminishes after some time. The intensity of this yellowing varies from product to product, and there may be some where such an effect is not seen at all.
