Canada is the largest producer of flaxseed in the world, and we source all of our flaxseed from conventional and organic growers across the Canadian Prairies. Our flax oil is cold-pressed using a proprietary method that allows us to produce the best tasting oil possible and protect the important omega-3 ALA fatty acids. After cold-pressing the flaxseed, our oil is then filtered to ensure the best clarity possible.
Coconut Oil – RBD
At Food4Change, our “Refined, Bleached, and Deodorized” (RBD) oil is obtained from dried coconut kernel, which is cold pressed to extract the oil. This yields practically all of the oil present, amounting to more than 60% of the dry weight of the coconut. This oil is then processed with organic clay to produce a product with no coconut taste or aroma. The oil is then filtered to produce a high quality refined product.
Coconut Oil – MCT
Coconut oil is a superior source of medium triglycerides (MCT). Due to their shorter length, MCTs are easily digested and many health benefits are linked to the way your body processes these healthy fats. Approximately 65% of the fatty acids in coconut oil are MCT. These medium-chain fatty acids are essential for good health and are used in the body in a variety of ways.
Our hemp seed is sourced from both conventional and organic growers across Canada where hemp production has been allowed since 1998. All of our hempseed products are manufactured from varieties of Cannabis Sativa that do not contain significant amounts of THC, the psychoactive element present in the cannabis plant. After cold- pressing the hemp seed, our oil is then filtered to ensure the best clarity possible.
