This is the most unpleasant flax oil I have ever tasted. I use around 1 bottle of 250ml per week as part of a Budwig maintenance diet and have tried a number of different brands. I bought 6 bottles from Clearspring and the first 4 bottles have all been the same. The colour is a darker yellow than other flax seed oils and there is a very bitter after taste which makes me think it is rancid. It smells like the old linseed oil I used to put on my cricket bat. If taste and freshness are important to you then avoid this product.
I wouldn't normally comment on the taste of flaxseed oil as I add it to my muesli after it's soaked in water, to give it a little extra body, and the oats in the muesli emulsify the oil, giving it almost the consistency of milk. However, for this review, I tasted the oil and while it does have that characteristic bitter taste of flax seed oil, it's mild and the oil has a nice smooth taste, smoother than any other I've tried, which indicates to me that it's reasonably fresh.
The best oil we have found, great company and customer service and well packed. Thank you
A high quality oil, and my order was delivered very quickly.
Very nice smooth taste, using it every morning, the right size bottle. Very nice gesture the samples, thanks.
