The omegafloŽ Process - shown on the right - is our proprietary method for producing the best unrefined, certified-organic oils of premium quality and exceptional taste.
The omegafloŽ Difference:
A Unique, Cold-pressed Extraction Process
The omegafloŽ process was developed to manufacture unrefined, certified-organic oils of premium quality and exceptional taste. We buy organic seeds and nuts that are certified by internationally recognized certifying agencies such as the OCPP/Pro-Cert Canada Inc.
Fresh, Organic, Unrefined Oils
Our seeds and nuts are "fresh" expeller-pressed at low temperatures (30°-33°C/86°-92°F for EFA oils, 30°-43°C/86°-110°F for culinary oils) without exposure to damaging light, oxygen and reactive metals.
The result: premium-quality oils that taste deliciously like the freshly cracked nuts or seeds they were crushed from.
Opaque Protective Packaging
Omega Nutrition uses inert gas to create this oxygen-free environment during the manufacturing and bottling process. As the name inert gas indicates, the gas does not react with oil. Light, more than any other element, causes the most damage to unrefined oil on the retail shelf. Proper packaging is, therefore, imperative.
100% Trans-fatty Acid Free
Our "live" oils are 100% trans-fatty-acid- (TFA)-free. Because of their freshness and the delicate nature of EFAs, we feel it is the responsibility of the manufacturer to inform consumers how long an oil will last. Which is why we have a "Pressing" and "Best Before" date on the bottle. This will help consumers best obtain their EFAs while the EFAs are still intact.
Maintaining the Highest Nutritional Quality
Omega Nutrition does not use any of the following procedures commonly used during the refining of vegetable oils:
