I really loved this organic flaxseed cooking oil by Alligga. I use it to make my own salad dressing that has a unique taste. It is nutty but not over powering. I also cook eggs with the oil it also gives a nice taste. I love it’s canadian made and a good source of omega 3. Also being organic I love this product and if you are health conscious you should try this great product.

I liked the fact that it is organic with the benefits that come with flax. I was a little hesitant to try this as I'm used to used olive oil in my dishes. Turns out that the taste is very subtle/non-existent. I use it when steaming fish, frying my eggs, etc. Only downside is it's difficult to a store that carries this (only able to find at Whole Foods) and it's very pricey - $20 a bottle. * Received this product free as part of a promotion/trial

Sang L. – Ontario | Rating: 5/5 Stars
Excellent product! It has only mildly nutty smell and taste even though its texture seems thicker than olive oil. That makes it an excellent choice for dipping or salad dressing as it's hard to disguise its smell and taste in these if it's too strong . It also comes in several different flavors, so I don't have to stick with just the basic. I especially like the chili flavored one! I find it's a little pricey and hard to find this product as not many stores have it yet. Other than that, it's a great product that offers an easy way to get lots of Omega-3 and antioxidants!

This product was very good for salads, cooking. It did not smoke up like some other oils. Plus, its organic and you can taste the difference. AND it is a Canadian product.

I love this cooking oil because it's a great alternative to avocado oil, which I've been using to cook for a while now. I like the light nutty flavour and the fact that me and my family can get our omega-3s without tasting fish; I find it very difficult to get my kids to take omega supplements because they don't like the taste. I've used this oil as an alternative to canola in a zucchini bread recipe - the result was a moist bread packed with goodness and the kids got their omegas, too 🙂 I'd definitely recommend this to anyone who wants to add more omega-3s in their family's diet.

They've been going into smoothies, and topping our yogurt and hot cereals. The cooking oil seamlessly incorporates into my baking recipes and I am looking forward to trying it in salad dressings. Their chilli oil blew my mind. I had it drizzled over avacado toast for one meal, and as a finishing oil over scrambled eggs and it was beautiful. I highly recommend these products, the chili has a permanent place in my heart. Wow.

The oil has a very strong flavour and scent so I personally didn't enjoy it very much. Also, the fact that it is heat safe means it was probably manipulated/filtered to only contain short-chain fats, which begs the question of - why consume it then?

Pleasantly surprised by how versatile this oil was. It was a great oil for high temperature cooking and for baking. It was also a wonderful addition in salads as a fat to bind with any citrus I was using; to create a dressing. This oil has a nutty taste, but it’s light and tolerable. The nutritional profile was also excellent. It’s rare to find a plant based product oil with a good concentration of omega-3.

I switched my regular olive oil to Alligga Organic Flaxseed Cooking Oil for a month. The switch was noticeable to my family, in great way. We were very pleased with the taste of this flaxseed cooking oil. The flavour was slightly nuttier than olive oil, but worked just as well in cooking and uncooked recipes. Unrefined and cold pressed, this Canadian product is a must in our home. My favourite use was in a spinach and strawberry salad. I have included the recipe for you try too: Spinach and Strawberry Salad 2 tablespoons sesame seeds 1 tablespoon poppy seeds 1/2 cup white sugar 1/2 cup Alligga Organic Flaxseed Cooking Oil 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar 1/4 teaspoon paprika 1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce 1 tablespoon minced onion 10 ounces fresh spinach - rinsed, dried and torn into bite-size pieces 1 quart strawberries - cleaned, hulled and sliced 1/4 cup almonds, blanched and slivered Mix all the ingredients on the list, up till the spinach and strawberries (to make the dressing) and drizzle generously on the spinach and strawberries, finish with almonds!

I received this Alligga Flaxseed oil for free, and as a result I promise to provide a honest review. I really liked this flax seed oil. The first time I used it, I decided to use it to cook eggs for breakfast. I was a little skeptical that my eggs would taste funny, but they didn’t. It has a light taste. I then used it to make banana bread, and have topped it on my salads. The only thing I noticed and that I’m not fond of is the price tag. My local Fortinos - which is where I claimed my free product. this was $18. I will try elsewhere to see if I can find it cheaper. I couldn’t find it at Walmart or NoFrills when I was trying to claim my the free coupon. However, other than that I really liked this oil.

I love the nutty taste of the Alligga flaxseed oil, it tastes great when drizzled in salads and cooking eggs. I usually get my omega 3 intake from consuming salmon and but this flaxseed oil also has omega 3 so now I don't just have to rely on salmon! Overall I would recommend it to my health conscious friends and feel great to support a Canadian product!

I was really curious to try flaxseed cooking oil as I didn't think that was possible. I tasted it directly and noticed it was slightly bitter but once cooked, I didn't notice any difference in taste to when I cook with olive oil... even in scrambled eggs. I was quite pleased about that and extremely excited about the health benefits. I will definitely buy this product.

The best oil ever! I have been a long time and loyal Olive Oil user and was absolutely floored by how wonderful this worked on everyday - and specialty recipes. I used it as a base in a vinegarette (light and amazing) and to cook veggies (stir fry - gave it a deeper fuller flavour) and fish. It adds a depth to everything that I just cannot get with any other Oil. It is now my staple.

I usually use vegetable oil or Virgin olive oil whenever I'm making vegetarian curries or sautéeing my vegetables; however, I find that my kitchen gets smokey fast and makes my eyes burn! But with the Alliga Organic Flaxseed Oil, I found thaty vegetables not only had a wonderful boost of nuttiness, it felt light in my stomach and best of all - there was no smoke in my kitchen, it was such a huge relief!! I would definitely buy this as a replacement for vegetable and olive oil - it feels light, healthy, adds a great flavour boost and is easy overall to add in any recipe!

To be safe, I used the oil in our baked goods. I often replace butter with oil when baking and it turned out just as well as any other times. We didn't notice any strange flavours/textures after baking. In terms of baking, it performs just like any other oil that we've used.

The one thing that really caught my attention about this product was how it was chemical free. I always put flaxseed in my drinks but didn't have anything with such good benefits for cooking. I avoid oils a lot with all the additives it has. This oil has a mild smell nothing too strong. I used it in my stir fry and it gave a very nutty aroma. The taste was also mild and slightly similar to virgin olive oil. I did notice the smell of the oil got a bit stronger because I fried the veggies in it a bit longer then needed. Nonetheless the taste wasn't bitter. This is definitely a great find and buy. Thank you for letting me try this amazing product.

After doing a little research on this oil and discovering that that it is one of the first flaxseed oils you can actually cook with overall I am very happy with the outcome from our cooking with it. It has a distinct nutty flavour when cooking it with chicken but I felt it was a good addition to the meal and the kids did not object. The only downside was when eating it cold with a salad it gave off a little bit of a bitter flavour. After a few times eating it cold I started to grow accustomed to the flavour and quite enjoy it now. Really love that the oil comes in a big glass bottle for the price but need to remember to refridgerate it so it doesn't go bad.

I quite like this oil actually. I cooked chicken in it and it cooked nice and evenly. I find it heats up just as quickly as a traditional cooking oil, at least on a stovetop. I also noticed that it provides a hint of flavour that was new to me...almost nutty or earthy but not overpowering. It actually made my chicken taste so good! The only concern is that this slight flavour may not pair well with everything so I would just consider that when deciding what to cook in this oil. Overall though, an awesome product!

This is a good oil with a nice nuttiness to it which makes it an interesting finish to salads as opposed to more neutral oils like a soybean, peanut oil or grapeseed based dressing / vinaigrette and is more pleasant than a strong olive oil. I appreciate the Omega 3 benefits of flaxseed. Good mixing medium if you want to make up your own dressings and vinaigrettes with herbs and spices. Due to the fact that this is flaxseed - make sure you refrigerate after opening or it will go rancid.

Absolutely amazing! I use this as my regular cooking oil now. Not too overwhelming, this flaxseed oil is just right. It is also much healthier than your go-to corn oil or etc as it has the right type of fats. This oil has all the qualities I'm looking for all in one bottle: it's organic, unrefined, and has the right kinds of nutrients. I will definitely be repurchasing this after I run out.

Loved it. Flaxseed oil is supposed to be so good for you and it’s awesome that you can cook with this one. The flavor is definitely an acquired taste - bitter, but when it’s drizzled on or mixed into foods (uncooked), it adds another dimension to the flavours. When I cooked with it, it seemed to take away the bitterness.

I tried Alligga organic flaxseed cooking oil. I like how it was rich in Omgea-3 and had a high smoke point. I didn't have to worry about seeing a lot of smoke or setting of the smoke detector when I sautéed my veggies or cooked my meat. I also like how it had a light nutty flavour that added to my cooking without over powering it. I was a little worried that it would make my cooking taste funny or bad but after trying it I realized it didn't. I will definitely be buying more when I run out.

I will definitely keep this as a staple in my home.

I have used other flax seed products in the past but this is a different type of oil or product than I have used. I like that this can be used more for cooking and for things like salads. Many other oils like this have to be mixed into something or put into a smoothie. I used this not for cooking so much but to add to salads and food in place of other oils that I would usually use. The taste is really good and it is not strong or overpowering. I like that I can also cook with it though I have not had the opportunity to do this yet. It is great that this is an organic and natural product and that it has lots of health benefits. I can see myself using this to add Omega and other good fats to my diet.

It is also important to support Canadian products and I will definitely purchase this again and again!

I love the health benefits of using flax seed oil rather than some other oils on the market. This was my first time trying flax seed oil in cooking. Great packaging, I tried it in a variety of ways including, as a base for salad dressing, to stir fry veggies, to deep fry chicken wings (for guest with no complaints) and with pasta. It is definitely more bitter than I expected but that could be remedied by balancing it with seasonings and adding something sweet/acidic when making a salad dressing. It definitely can stand up to high heat, no smoking noted which is a plus compared to other unhealthy alternatives on the market. I would recommend this product but be mindful that it does have a slight bitter taste, it wasn't a bad taste though, just different from what I'm used to.

I have never tried flaxseed oil before but I have heard about the nutritional benefits of Alligga Flaxseed oil thus I decided to give it a try. I used it as a cooking oil but I know it can be added to salad or as a dip as well. I used it for cooking because, unlike some other oils, Alligga is safe for high heat. I like the great flavour of it and my kids love its flavour too. Besides its good flavour, flaxseed is also very rich in omega 3. Alligga organic flaxseed oil is all natural, non GMO and unrefined, I will continue to use it and recommend it!

This bottle of flaxseed oil is as expected. The taste was not altered in any of my food, and even when I heated the oil for too long, the scent of burning was not overly pungent. I could not point out anything in particular that would draw me to buy this product over another (especially if it costs more than another bottle of flaxseed).

Hi I tried flax seed oil that is organic. I tried it with the vouchur that was sent to me by Social Nature. I liked it alot for the fact that it was organic and full of omega 3 which is healthy for my kids. Also when you cook with it you dont taste any flax seed or oil only the smell is very strong the smell of flax seed but its full of omega 3 goodness. I like it and i will buy it again. I even made my ommellates from it and it taste great. Nobody could tell if i cooked with normal oil or flax seed oil smell comes only when u cook after awhile even the smell goes and food tastes great.

I love this product. I used it to cook with instead of my usual canola oil and liked it so much better that it has now become the oil of choice In my home. It endures high heat much better than canola or vegetable oil do. It also does not fill the air with that lingering odor that I used to drop the others. However I found another use for it that maybe others have not thought of......I added it to my bath water and found that it is amazing for my skin. It left my skin so well moisturized and did not leave an odor nor did it leave feeling greasy. I will never use baby oil in this way ever again. I'm totally hooked on this product. Thank you to social nature for giving me the opportunity to try this product for free!!!!

I received a full bottle of Alligga Cooking Oil from Social Nature and have since used it twice...once for frying and once in their banana bread recipe. It has a dark colour but it isn't representative of its taste. It is light tasting, doesn't really affect the flavour of what you are making. I am looking forward to trying out a salad dressing made with it. I quite like it and would certainly consider buying it at a later date. It is a little on the pricey side however.

I've never tasted flaxseed oil before, and this was more bitter than I was expected. That said, once I got used to the flavor, I've decided I really do like it. I like that the filtering process during manufacture makes it possible to cook with it. Since I started eating healthier, I figured that fried chicken was something I'd have to give up. Oh, I could cook it on low heat with olive oil, but I really dislike the flavor of olive oil. Alligga allows me to have my favorite dish (with a few alterations). Instead of dredging the chicken in a flour mixture, I coat it with raw shredded coconut, then saute it in Alligga flaxseed oil. It has a delicious nutty, coconut-y flavor, and it's as crunchy as the fried chicken I used to eat. I like that this oil comes in a dark bottle (which prevents oxidation). And as long as I keep it in the fridge between uses, it stays as healthy as the day I got it.

I can honestly say that my life has completely changed for the better since trying Alliga Organic Flaxseed Cooking Oil. I have a skin condition called keratosis pilaris, a.k.a. chicken skin on my upper arms. The bumps on my upper arms have since almost completely dissappeared from ingesting this delicious oil rich in Omega-3! I use Aligga daily: from scrambling eggs, making grilled cheese sandwiches, drizzling it on salads and even making garlic bread. I enjoy and crave the light nutty taste, which is versatile and healthy, for a wide variety of dishes. I can trust that this product is good for my body due to it being organic, Non-GMO, with no additives, chemicals, or preservatives. So pick up your own bottle today, you won't be dissapointed!

This company has great integrity and their "Product Highlights" are very impressive - organic, GMO free, Kosher, Canadian, cold pressed plus more. Flax is a great source of Omega 3 and that makes it stand alone as a cooking oil. I'm still a little unclear as to what about it's cold pressing and filtering process that makes it have a higher burning point than all other flax oil. It is very bitter as is all flax oil, but I found this product to be more so. I was leery to bake with it due to the bitterness.

I was looking forward to this product because it was supposed to have a high smoke point and I've been trying to find new alternatives with high smoke points. It didn't burn or turn when I sauteed and fried some of my meals. There was a little bit of a different taste there but it wasn't a bad taste and was very mild. Most important it did not make my food taste any different than frying with any other oil. Non-GMO and loaded with Omega 3s, It is probably as healthy as you can get in an oil with the possible exception of olive oil which I don't use for everything. A fun product to experiment with as this is the only flaxseed cooking oil that I've come across to date.

The flaxseed oil has a great nutritional profile and smooth texture. However, I found the flavour to be a little strong, so I would be selective as to which foods I use to cook it with, or add it to, as it can overpower the main ingredients in the dish.

Alligga Organic Flaxseed oil is a great oil for sauteeing/frying as it has a high smoke point. The bright yellow color threw me off at first, being used to light and colorless oils. The flavor is relatively mild so does not affect the flavor of the food you are cooking. I also used it to toss vegetables in for roasting in the oven with good effect. I especially liked that this oil is GMO free and 100% Canadian.

I tasted a spoonful of this oil before cooking with it. It was extremely bitter and unappealing. Because of that I've been very hesitant to use it for anything. I can't imagine using it for baking. Perhaps in a salad but again, I don't know how the bitterness would be covered up. Many people have given this product a positive rating saying the taste is mild. I am wondering if perhaps my bottle went rancid. I'm giving it 2 stars because of the health benefits and the fact that it is organic.

I generally oven-cook with olive (not great for high heat) and coconut oils. Using Alligga's Organic Flaxseed Cooking Oil was my first time cooking with Flaxseed Oil. Being a product test, first, I cracked open the bottle and poured a small amount on a teaspoon, to taste. While at room temperature, the oil was smooth with a distinct flavour. The flavour was not undesirable, but not a one I would pour over my salad; this is definitely a cooking oil. Next, I prepared my usual broccoli, carrot and cauliflower combo. On went the oil and into the oven it went. This particular meal was to be consumed by the family, including 2 taste-specific children, ages 3 and 6. It was a risk to switch oils - but noting that this Canadian product contains no additives, chemicals or preservatives, is organic, among other great pluses, I was more than willing to give it a try. The result? Everyone ate everything. The Organic Flaxseed Cooking Oil from Alligga provided an almost sweet flavouring which absolutely complimented the natural flavours of the vegetables. The kids didn't say a word (that's a good thing!) and I was very pleased with the outcome, inlcuding the evenness of cooking (no burned spots or over saturation) There was no noticeable cooking-oil odor in the house. As a bonus, the pan was easy to clean! Next experiment: In the frying pan @ a higher heat! R 🙂

I've tried Organic Flaxseed Cooking Oil by Alligga three times. The first time I tried it, I used it to saute vegetables used in a stir fry. I was impressed with the high smoke point and the flavour. The second time I tried it, I massaged it into kale chips (which were then baked). While the taste of the oil was fine, the chips came out differently (not in a good way), than when I use more traditional oils (Olive, Canola). They were chewy instead of crisp and crunchy. I wouldn't use it for this cooking method again. The third time I used this product was to brown onions before making an omelet and this was also pretty delicious. I like the taste and the health benefits most about this oil. Flaxseed is incredibly healthy and I'd love to incorporate more of this fat in my diet. Although it won't replace olive oil in my kitchen, I would still buy this product.

I use a lot of ground (and whole) flax seeds in my smoothies, etc. but had never used flaxseed oil. I’m very particular about the oils I cook with, and I usually only use extra virgin olive oil and coconut oil. I’ve used this one for oven-baked salmon and its somewhat strong, slightly fishy taste makes it perfect for it! I tried replacing the olive oil I put in my hummus with it and the result was very rich, earthy and yummy. It’s also great for salad dressings, adding a unique flavor and some great Omega-3 benefits! 🙂 I keep it in the fridge so it stays fresh for longer; also, love the sleek bottle!

This is my new cooking oil! I was getting very nervous about high smoke points with canola oil and other cooking oils, but I am nervous no more. I tried Alligga's Organic Flaxseed Cooking Oil and I was really impressed. The main reason I like this product is because it has a low smoke point, which makes it suitable to cook with. The second is for it's rich source of non- GMO flaxseed/Omega 3's. I use this oil mainly for cooking - chicken, steak, eggs, potatoes, veggies. I also found it to be quite delicious as a substitute for olive oil on bruschetta. I love that this oil is cold pressed with non GMO Canadian flaxseeds, it's also gluten-free. The fact that there are no added chemicals, artificial ingredients or preservatives makes me love it even more! I find I don't get enough Omega 3's. With this oil I know I will have reduced inflammation, better cognitive function and better skin, hair and nails! What's not to love!

This is a good oil but on it's own, uncooked, I thought it had a fishy taste. When cooked the flavour was good and masked when using spices and other ingredients. But if I used the oil on it's own the flavour was too off for me to handle. For dishes like salad I wouldn't use this. I did enjoy the health benefits and the fact it was organic. It's a healthier alternative to the common oils available on the shelf.

As soon as I got the sample I tried it right away to my salad. I am very conscious about my health. I know flaxseed is very nutricious and the sample will add to my healthy eating habits. My salad is much more enjoyable to eat knowing I add healthy dressing on it. I also use it for mynkther recipes. thank u so much for the sample. marizol

i used this to sate veggies and I also used this as a substitute in baking recipes. it had a subtle nutty aftertaste which was nice. It had a high smoke point. I like that it is high in omega-3. I use flax seed all the time but sometime I don't have time to grind them so this is another good and easy way to get my much needed omga-3 in my day.

I used this in my pasta with some sun-dried tomatoes and garlic. Great taste and texture - some oils have an "overbearing" flavour, but this was just right. I love that it's from flax, as flaxseed oil has so many health benefits. I would definitely use this for salads, pasta and for cooking.

I have tried flaxseed in the past and I did not like the taste....this has nothing to do with the brand I got to try for free from Social Nature. Alligga is a very good brand, it is a brand I trust and a brand that creates high quality items. Unfortunately, I just do not like things with a bitter taste, I found all flaxseed oils to have a bitter taste to it. I read all about this brand and this product of flaxseed oil I received and was so excited to try it because it is such a good quality and very well-made. I tried cooking with it but it just boils down to the fact I can not stomach the taste, It is a personal thing and I recognize this, not the product's fault as other flaxseed oils taste the same if not worse. I gave it 3 stars to be fair... Because when reading about the product it is a very healthy and high grade of flaxseed oil with a ton of benefits! Unrefined and cold pressed oils are my choice when selecting other type of healthy oils I consume. An added bonus is that this product has a high heating/cooking point which is beneficial. I let my friend taste it since she likes bitter tasting things and she LOVED it so I gave her my bottle so it wouldn't go to waste. So if you like flaxseed and use it reguarly and quailty is of impotance to you than I would recommend this one.

A decent neutral tasting oil. It held up well to heat - no burning before I get the food in the pan! I don't think I'll purchase it due to the price since there are other comparable products for the same use that are less expensive.

I used this oil uncooked/without heat and was overwhelmed by the smell and taste. However, I do cook a lot and decided to use it as a substitute for olive oil and coconut oil and to be expected, the smell/taste was not there and I really liked that. It's an acquired taste if you're going to use it uncooked but if you plan to cook with it, try it, plus it has some amazing health benefits.

I'm not sure if my flaxseed oil isn't off? It has a strong flavour to it compared to oils that I normally use. When I received the bottle it had spilled in the package, so it was open before I got it. So I can't actually review it fairly. I would purchase it to actual try it because of the health benefits of Flaxseed and I would recommend it for the same reason.

I am a bit torn on how I feel about this product, I love all of the benefits but cooking with it was a bit harder than I expected. It was difficult to get the right consistency while frying and hide to work with the flavour, I continued trying but it worked better as a salad dressing. Ultimately I would give it another go and see if i can get the right formula.

Although flaxseed oil is healthy, I do not appreciate it's taste. i found it to be unpleasant as a dressing, did not enjoy it at all on salads. I did, however, like it in stir fries. The unpleasant taste much subdued. Adding it to smoothies, enhances the flavour and gives you all the benefits of flaxseed. Overall, not keen on flavour, but the benefits of flaxseed oil overweighs it's unpleasant taste. #trynatural

Mixed feelings...although it didn't leave a bad taste I wasn't crazy about the dark colour in my food. I tried it in the frying pan with breakfast (eggs & potatoes) and it made them discoloured.

This oil is fantastic. It gives the food a bit of a nutty flavour. You only need just a bit and it goes a long way. I made the mistake of putting too much at one point. This oil has a bit of a high burn content so don't put it at max or medium heat right away. I would suggest low then medium.

Really like this as an alternative to olive oil and LOVE that it is 100% Canadian and organic! I've used this a few times to make different salad dressings and have really enjoyed the flavour. With the high smoke point, I'm looking forward to trying to fry some tofu with it - I think it will make a lovely combo. This has been an excellent addition to my oil collection and I look forward to experimenting with it more.

As a cooking oil, I still prefer using olive oil as it has a higher smoking point than the flaxseed oil. I tried it as an oil for making homemade dressings, and I still prefer the taste of a high quality olive oil. However, it just may take getting used to. I wouldn't replace any of my current products with the flaxseed oil, but it certainly would get used as another oil in my pantry.

I loved the taste this oil gave to my foods. I used the Aliggia Flaxseed oil when making tomato sauce using my homegrown tomatoes.

It would also make an awesome housewarming gift! #trynatural

I'm no oil snob. I've tried olive, sesame, and coconut oils and I've loved each one for different reasons. This was my first time trying a flaxseed oil, and I've been enjoying experimenting with it. The Alligga version has a high heat point of 485F which makes it great for baking into treats like banana bread. That's amazing! Flaxseed oil gives you a good dose of omega-3 in your diet, which helps your mood, your health, and more. The mild nutty taste allows it to go pretty undetected, if you add it to things like your morning smoothies (my favorite easy use!) or in dressings. You only need about one or two tablespoons a day to see benefits from flaxseed oil. This is a nice addition to my pantry shelf!

I have a hormonal imbalance that I've struggled with since stopping the birth control pill a year ago, and my dietician advised me to up my soy and flax intake to regulate things. I find the taste of flaxseed off-putting sometimes when it's used in baked goods, but this oil has so far delivered only good things! I've used it in place of olive oil for cooking as well as in a waffle recipe and not noticed any bitterness that I've come to expect from flax. Additionally, I was impressed to learn in the accompanying pamphlet that you can cook at high heat with this particular flaxseed oil. I love that it's organic, too. I will definitely buy this again!

I have been have flaxseed for a very long time, whether the seeds or ground powder form & I love it. However, this was my 1st time trying it in oil form. 1st impressions...great packaging & I didn't notice any smell on opening the bottle. I tried a teaspoon of the oil on its own, no strong noticeable taste either. I've used it several times now since arrival, from basic omelettes to baking fish. It didn't really affect the taste/smell of my food. However, it did absorb well & my meals weren't as greasy as other oils would be. I like that this organic & has omega-3.

Flax seed oil is an acquired taste...and I guess I still haven't gained it. Such a bad aftertaste after I used it to fry food at high temperature as the bottle says. It cooks okay but the taste is just....blah. and because cooking with flax seed oil has been known to introduce carcinogenics into your system, I'm curious to learn more about this new filtration system the company uses to reduce this risk.

slightly nutty, totally delicious! I know this is supposed to be 'cooking oil' however I used the Aligga both as a bread dip and a salad dressing mixed with aged balsamic vinegar and some fresh herbs and got raves from my guests. I also used the Aligga as a supplement to add some healthy fats to my smoothies and it tasted great there too. I will try it to cook with but with the weather being as warms it has been I'm more of a salad person.

I admit I was confused when I signed up to review this product. It is well known flax seed need to stay cold to benefit from the omega 3 oils. Alligga has found a way to cold press and filter the flax seed oil so it has a high smoke point. I cooked with this oil and it was great. It worked well and did not leave an after taste. I am glad I read the instructions because this oil needs to be kept in the fridge after opening. Things I love about this product; - Harvested from only organic non-GMO Canadian flaxseeds - fully processed in Canada -no added chemicals, artificial ingredients or preservatives It is an innovative, organic, Canadian product.

I received a bottle of this oil for free courtesy of the brand and Social Nature. Before cooking with it, I tried it with bread and to be honest, I didn't like it. It has a very strong and bitter flavour. Having said that, when it's cooked it adds great depth and dimension to whatever you're cooking. I used it to stir-fry on high heat and it didn't smoke which was great. I also love the fact that it's 100% Canadian made. I will certainly consider purchasing it in the future!
Lilly B. – Ontario | Rating: 4/5 Stars
Although the label states that it is a cooking oil, it seemed like such a waste to use it for cooking. I felt that heating the oil would somehow diminish the omega- 3 values, a little crazy I know but then I decided to use the least heat possible for anything that I use it in. I mainly drizzled it on my food as is because I loved the flavour of it on it's own. It has a slightly nutty sesame seed kind of taste, it doesn't taste like a vegetable or olive oil at all although the texture is pretty much the same. I also added a spoon of it in smoothies too, yummy. The only thing that may be a disadvantage over other oils is that flaxseed oil is highly perishable and needs to be stored in dark places, a small price to pay for the omega-3 benefits of it. I love the flavour and wouldn't mind buying it in small quantities to avoid it spoiling. Of course using whole flaxseeds would get around this totally.

I had the pleasure of testing Organic Flaxseed Cooking Oil from Alligga for free as part of Social Nature's Product Review Program. As North America's 1st high-heat safe flaxseed oil, I was very eager to take this baby for a spin! Over 2 weeks, I have used this beautiful oil to cook veggies, fish, chicken, and so much more. It gives the meal such a gorgeous, bold nutty flavour. As the oil is rich in Omega-3's, is unrefined and cold pressed, certified organic, non-GMO, and has no additives, chemicals or preservatives, there is no reason NOT to give Alligga Flaxseed Cooking oil a try...or should I say #trynatural?!

Non-GMO and loaded with Omega 3s, Alligga flaxseed oil is probably as healthy as you can get in an oil with the possible exception of olive oil which I don't use for everything. It does have a different taste but it wasn't a bad taste and was very mild. If you're concerned about a possible bitter nutty flavor, use it sparingly the first few times and then you can adjust as you go along. I used it in my parmesan penne dish and also used it to roast brussel sprouts. I think for best results, this flaxseed oil should be used for sauteing relatively neutral tasting ingredients like cauliflower or potatoes.

I've never tasted flaxseed oil before so I drizzled it on my balsamic tomato and basil salad. It had a stronger taste than I expected. That said, once I got used to the flavour, I've decided that I do like it. This oil has a golden brown colour to it. Consistency wise, it's very much like olive oil. Flaxseed oil is the best vegetable-based source of omega-3s. Omega-3s are important for lowering bad cholesterol, boosting cardiac health, and reducing inflammation. Another great feature of this oil is its smoke point of 482°F! So next time I'm going to try it when making coconut shrimp for an added nutritional boost.

As Many are aware of the various health benefits of flax seed oil, this was my first time trying it out. I liked the aroma, the flavour is bitter, but it has nutty flavour. Its strong flavour won't replace my coconut oil or sunflower oil and ghee(Clarified Butter) for cooking but it will become part of my life. I used it for my salad dressing and dipped my bread in the oil which tasted really good. If the taste of flax seed suits you or want to try it out, then I think that this oil will be a good choice and a good alternative to olive oil it was good to experiment with it, as this is the only flax seed cooking oil that I've come across till date !!

I was one of the chosen ones to receive this product for free from social nature. So far, I have tried this 3 different ways: as an appetizer bread dip, on over roasted herb potato wedges and in a salad dressing. I like balsamic vinegar / extra virgin olive oil as a appetizer dip with bread so tried substituting the flax seed oil in place of olive oil. The first time I did the usual, 50 / 50 dip where I found the flax seed taste a bit strong; the next time I used 60 / 40 vinegar and oil and it tasted a lot better. I used it as a base for coating my homemade potato wedges with herb seasonings and then baking and it turned out very well, tasted great and was and helped enhance the flavour or the seasonings I added. I grow lot of my own herbs and usually do a vinegar and oil dressing with seasonings. I tried this in my usual measurements and again, as I found out in the first test, the flavour is a bit stronger that what I am use to and it did not quite turn out as expected. The second time I made it, I used less of the oil and mixed it 40% oil to 60% vinegar with seasonings and it tasted a lot better. I will continue to try this in different ways and report back but I am very satisfied with it and will continue to use it and purchase 🙂

This oil has great nutritional qualities but it also has quite a strong flavour. I have used it in cooking and it's best for sauces or foods that have enough flavour to not be affected. Would not use as a finishing oil unless you wanted the flax taste.

I wasn't really surprised at how I enjoyed the flaxseed oil. I usually put flaxseed powder in my oatmeal and yogurt so I expected the flavour and taste would be relatively the same. I used it as part of my salad dressing as half balsamic vinegar/half oil. I enjoyed the nutty flavour (though personally I don't have a preference in flavour of oils) because I usually put almonds and other nuts in my salad. I also really like the fact that it has a high smoking point. Though I haven't had a chance to cook with it yet, I really like knowing I don't have to worry like I do with olive oil. Overall, a great product. Unsure of the price so I'm not sure if I would spend that amount on a bottle of oil, but as a splurge, I would do it.

This flaxseed oil has been a great way to add healthy fats to my diet - whether I cook with it, drizzle it over a salad or even take just a small spoonful on its own.

The first job I used the oil for was caramelizing onions, and at first I wasn't sure about how the flavors were blending, but then I added hot peppers & garlic, and suddenly something rather lovely happened. The tomato sauce that was the end result turned out extremely well, and the oil seemed to be what bridged the other flavors. Next I tried using it with pan-frying protein (chicken, then tofu) and was instantly happy with the results. Finally, I tried it with baked vegetables, and I think maybe that's where I like it best, as the distinctive flavor really flatters the taste of the vegetable itself. I've been playing with it quite a bit (my jar is almost empty!) and it has grown on me very quickly.

I used this flaxseed cooking oil in my salad which also had flaxseeds so the flavour was great in the salad, and worked well with the other ingredients. I put a little on some garlic bread as well and it was hardly noticeable that i used the cooking oil and not butter. I used it again, twice, to cook chicken breasts will dill, oregano, basil, turmeric and a bit of salt and pepper. I didn't taste the flax seed at all, the chicken stayed super moist. The whole meal was using organic foods and I felt full, but not bloated at all, I felt light and full of energy, not lethargic and wanting to lay down and sleep.

Great new addition to our family's line of cooking oils. So far we have tried it with pasta (spaghetti and vegan meatballs) as well, we drizzle it over our salads. It has a subtle, yet nutty flavour.

I was really happy to receive this product because I use flax seeds regularly, but didn't know there was a flax seed oil. I tried using this and noticed it has a very distinct, almost bitter taste, but it doesn't bother me. Knowing how many benefits flax seeds have and the versatility of using an oil, this is something i will continue to use, despite it's distinct taste. A little goes a long way.

It was really interesting trying flaxseed cooking oil. I've had the pleasure of trying many different types, but this was a first. The flavour is mild. I used it for making roasted vegetables, baking muffins, and frying things up in a pan. It works well! I really like the fact there's the added benefits of Omega 3, especially as someone who doesn't consume a lot of fish or eggs. 🙂

As a child, I was allergic to fish so I always had to get my omega 3 through food and supplements.

I absolutely love this oil and recommend it to anyone looking for healthier oil options.

Love this stuff. The ridiculously high smoke point seemed pretty unreal at first, but it did do the job even for searing/stir-frying food. It has a nice, flax-seedy aroma when it heats up as well. I'm definitely going to look out for this in stores.

I don't notice any particular significant flavor or odor, but they may be just me. It's very pleasant. Have used it for frying organic (non-GMO) potatoes and stir-fry, and as a coating for baking bread. I believe it would be excellent added to other things in small amounts, such as homemade salad dressings and soups. No smoking at all, with excellent cooking qualities. Recommended and seems to be of a high quality.

This is an amazing product. To start with, the ingredient credentials are great, non-GMO and Canadian and organic, not too many products can boast about so many things in one place. Love the dark glass bottle and the oil is sumptuous without a strong smell. Used it raw to make dressing and felt good about feeding high quality product to my family.

I was surprised at how big the size we received to try from social nature was. A little does go a long way, I have never tried flaxseed oil before and I have to say that I like it. It is rich in omega-3 and has a subtle nutty flavour. Since it has a high smoke point it is amazing in stir fries for quick weeknight dinners. I highly recommend this oil as an alternative to canola or vegetable oil, and if u don't have coconut oil

I intended to try baking with it before writing a review, but I haven't had a chance yet - I look forward to trying it that way, too!

I loved the nutty flavour! Drizzled it on my salads with fresh squeezed lemon juice - delicious! It is a delicate oil that smokes and burns easily when heated (causing nasty trans fats to occur) so it is best used in its pure form, straight out of the bottle. Although it is touted as having a high heat capability, I still prefer to use other oils for high heat. It should be stored away from heat and light to prevent spoilage. Love the fact that is 100/% Canadian! My one critique is that the glass bottle be light-proof ie dark glass.

I have to say that I really enjoyed cooking with this product, I know flaxseed oils deliver the health benefits of omega-3s, and it works great for frying, sautéing and baking many different types of foods with no burning of food. Also, great to use as be used as a dip, salad dressing or food topping. I will be purchasing this once I finish & recommend as a great alternative to regular cooking oil.

Using this in place of other types of oils is a great concept. Through the years we have all moved on from using what was traditionally great for our parents, grandparents and their historical family. Now, when many people face the time in their lives which is heart trouble or high cholesterol they seek an alternative which is beneficial to their health. This is one of those ingredients which is good for you and at the same time accomplishes the age old remedy of making things which enhance their character on your palette.

I am used to the taste of olive oil, but I was not disappointed with the Flaxseed Oil. I noticed a bit more of a nutty flavor, and that is okay. I used it in salads and I used it in a stir fry. I really liked that it did not smoke like olive oil does. I would buy it, for sure.

I used the oil while making a stir fry the other night. The vegetables cooked nicely, the oil didn't smoke and the taste didn't alter the flavour.

I was sent this product as a sample. I can't say as I noticed any real difference between this and olive oil. The fluid is a bit more yellow but honestly other than the colour there was no real difference. So far I've used it in my Sweet and Sour Tofu on Rice recipe and to fry an egg. Both turned out great. This is a great alternative to olive oil! Edit: tried the curry raisin couscous recipe on the website. Delicious! The only problems I had were not with the product, but with the website. McAfee gave me warnings every time I tried to enter it saying it had signs being a phishing website. My other problem was with how ingredients were listed in the recipe section. Ingredients should be listed in the order they are needed.

I received a free sample of this product in exchange for a review. I made fried eggs with it , the flavour was nutty, but I am used to oils being a little bit sweeter. I used a cast iron pan, and unfortunately it made the pan sticky, and the eggs stuck to the pan. My husband and I also used this in a cucumber salad with onion and a flaxseed/lemon juice vinaigrette. It has a mild flavour, a little nutty/earthy. I think it worked a little better in this application, in a cold dish. Overall, I don't know that I would buy this product again. I could see it working in certain applications.

I take omega 3 supplement everyday and buy flaxseed powder to add to soup and congee. So I am really excited to try out flaxseed oil, which is another way to add more fibre to my diet. I love to use flaxseed oil on my salad, or brush on salmon and steak for grilling or bbq. I don't want to use it as cooking oil, as it will be a bit wasteful in my opinion.

Alligaa's Flaxseed cooking oil is pretty tasty when used for cooking. There's a picture on the side suggesting it's use for salads, however I find that it is extremely bitter and needs to be balanced with a lot of sugar/honey. I no longer use it for salads. Nonetheless, I highly recommend it's use for cooking as it adds a new flavour profile to many dishes.

I'm very happy this product came... I absolutely love it! My colleagues eat salads all the time which prompted me to eat healthy so using in salads has been great. It adds a nice nutty flavour and it helps that it's a healthy fat. I don't know if it makes a huge difference since I already take omega 3 supplements but I use this in small amounts so hopefully it will not make me overload on the good fats!

I am not a fan of strong scented oils like olive oil. I was not sure if I would like the taste of the Flaxseed oil. I was pleasantly surprised at the scent not being that strong. I can't really say if the I notice the omega 3 change in my diet. I have tried it in salads and it was great. I have yet to try using it to cook. I will update the review once I do try it. The only down side is that the oil needs to be put in the fridge once it had been opened.

This is a product I was really looking forward to receiving! I really wanted to try out a new cooking and dressing oil, and set aside the standard sunflower and olive oils that I regularly use. The oil is slightly nutty in flavour, which makes it a bit odd to use in certain salads, but a dream to cook with and use in keto recipes, including smoothies. I also love the fact that it contains Omega-3s, and is a great way to incorporate them into my diet.

I was super excited to receive Alligga Flaxseed Cooking Oil in the mail - not only was it an alternative to the usual olive oil I put on my salad, I appreciate the fact that it is made with Canadian Organic Flaxseeds, Cold Pressed/Un-Refined, and Non-GMO/Organic. Alligga Flaxseed Oil had an mild earthy scent, and a distinct but delicious nutty flavor. It was a great complement poured over salad, mixed with apple cider vinegar.

Unfortunately I didn't really care for the taste of this product. I used it in a stir fry recipe and it made the stir fry taste bitter. I know that flax has a slightly bitter taste, but it just seemed to overpower a bit.

I really liked the fact that it has a high smoke point.

This Flaxseed Cooking Oil was great. I wasn't expecting much but it sort of surprised me. This is what I tried cooking with it: - Mexican Rice: This was definitely a surprise, I noticed the oil gave the rice a distinct flavour and it was good. I'm not sure how to describe it but it was delicious and we all ate a lot of it 🙂 Also, it seemed as if the rice had came out more fluffy, softer and hydrated. - Salad: I made a pretty normal salad with lettuce, tomato, chicken, olives and cheese, as I usually make it but instead of olive oil I added the Flaxseed Oil. It was great, again it added flavour to the salad somehow. It also mixes well with cheese. - By itself: I tried a spoon of Flaxseed Oil and it's not bad, though it's bitter but it's a nice bitter, like tea. However, if it was less bitter that would actually be better, just a personal preference. The texture is not super oily and is really light, which is good but I think the design of the bottle has to change due to this, maybe to something that would make it easier to pour the oil without pouring too much? Also, a bigger bottle would be nice 🙂 I am pretty sure now that I will switch to Flaxseed Oil. I've been using olive oil for a while now as a healthier alternative but Flaxseed Oil is tastier, the texture is great and it's not heavy at all. Also, I heard that it's good for lowering cholesterol, so I'm on board!

I love the fact that it has a high cooking temperature! I used it to roast potatoes, added it to smoothies and used it to make banana zucchini muffins for the kids! I think it's one of the most universal oils out there! I love the fact it is made in Canada and that it's organic. The price point is comparative to other high quality oils. It's a nice addition to the family of olive, avocado and grapeseed. I'm glad I got to try it because I think I would have passed it by. Now it will be one of my regular oils I go to. Healthy fats are so important in our diet and I'm glad my kids liked it too!

Great product! Nice glass bottle and packaging. I like that it has a high smoke point so I can use it in cooking and still enjoy the taste and benefits. It has a fresh and nutty taste.

For years, cold pressed flax oil has been touted as having all the benefits of flax preserved and that heating it would destroy them. As this oil is used with heat, one is left to wonder. I use flax often and enjoy the flavour. I did not, however, enjoy the taste or aftertaste of this oil.

I actually quite like this product as an oil substitute much better than olive oil. Tried it raw...as a dip to my pizza crust. It had a nice light nutty flavour to it. Also used it to Sautee some onions and it's colour added a nice hint of yellow to my white onions. love the fact that it has a higher smoke point than the other oils I use. I would consider keeping this as a staple in my pantry if the price point was more pocket friendly 🙂 #trynatural

I LOVE cooking and I LOVE trying new food products so when I was accepted to this campaign I was super excited! I LOVE this oil. I had a family BBQ over the weekend and I made veggies on the BBQ, I used a bit of the flaxseed along with some spices and everyone raved about how tasty they were. I also used the oil in my roasted potatoes (which again, everyone raved about) I would use this oil in replacement to olive oil. It has a slightly nutty flavor but it isn't over powering. Its a bit of a different taste but a pleasant one. I plan on making a Brussel sprout & quinoa salad and using the flaxseed oil as the base of the salad dressing. next! I would highly recommend this product to someone who loves trying new (and healthy alternatives) food, or anyone who is looking to get a little more of Omega 3's in their diet. Thank you so much Alligga & SocialNature for this great opportunity!

Although it may not neutral as other oil, flaxseed is so great for you! Omega 3 is great for skin and nails and is essential for your body. Each time you can sneak omega 3 into your diet, it is a bonus for your help. It's also great that the product has a high boiling point.

While I hardly consider myself to be a foodie, I DO enjoy trying new things. This said, it would never have occurred to me to try cooking with flaxseed oil! I’m glad I was given this opportunity because this oil adds a whole new dimension to the flavor of sautéed foods. Excellent in stir fries, this light, nutty and somehow non-greasy oil lends a welcome taste-change to my old standby recipes. I would definitely purchase this again. #trynatural

I have really enjoyed using this oil in my cooking. I really like how versatile it is, i have made salad dressing with it used it on my salad as well as fried and used it in baking. when using it, it has a very pleasant nutty taste to it. When frying with this oil it has a high smoke point and the food had a very light non greasy taste to it. I would absolutely be purchasing this for my home.

Maybe I got a bad batch, but the oil tasted very bitter and smelled "off". Even if this was not the case, I don' t see the benefit of using this oil for cooking. It is very expensive and I could simply add some ground flax seeds to my food instead.

Great product! I have used it to replace my normal salad dressing and my family loves the taste of it in our salad. Easy way to get our daily dose of omega-3 fatty acids.

We have used this product a few times. We tried it 2 times by using on pizza after it was cooked just as you would with Olive Oil and replacing the Olive Oil with this product in homemade salad dressing. We found the taste to be quite earthy and we did not care for it when used this way. Maybe it is an acquired taste. We then tried it as a cooking oil and we liked it much better. The cooking process seemed to take the strong earthiness flavour away. We both liked the health benefits of this product and will definitely use it in all our cooking.

This is very light. Very good in doing steak. I used to use olive oil for steak, I guessed due to high temperature, there is a lot of smoke and the smell stays in the house for a long time. With flaxseed oil, it is not an issue.

What I like about the Alligga Flaxseed oil the most is that it is a healthier option to oil. It is important for me because I watch what I eat and try to eat natural. First of all I really like the packaging of this product. The bottle is sleek and modern looking. I would definitely notice it on a shelf of a store. I don't use oil too much because it's high in fat and unhealthy but I am looking forward to experimenting with this one in the future. The first thing I made with it was a chicken stir fry with lots of vegetables. It gave the stir fry a very nice flavor and I only needed about a teaspoon. I look forward to using it again

This product was great! When you first open the bottle there is not strong odour which is great. I did make the mistake of bringing it close to my nose to smell it and unfortunately for me I felt is smelled disgusting. We cooked with it anyways, making stir fry veggies with just the oil and garlic. There was no smell when cooking with it and it gave the veggies a nice nutty flavour. I love that you can cook with the flaxseed oil as it is healthy. All in all a good product

I really love this Canadian flaxseed cooking oil by Alligga! I am constantly trying to incorporate more Omega-3s into my diet and I'm not a big fan of fish oil, so this is a great alternative.

And the fact that it is certified organic, non-GMO, and is additive, chemical and preservative free makes this a wonderful, healthy cooking oil option.

This an amazing new product. The flavour just bursts forth when put on a plain salad. Foods stir-fried comes alive and the best part is the high heat factor. It's smoke point surpasses all other oils on the market. The most important health benefit is Omega 3 fatty acid. This is one type of fat you do not want to miss out on. In studies it has been shown to curb stiffness and joint pain. This product is a winner in my books!!

I used the oil to saute onions and garlic for a roasted red pepper sauce. I did not leave an after taste and kept my veggies from burning. I turned my onions a bit yellow but did not effect the taste. I used this oil a second time to saute some spinach for stuffed shells. The oil did it's job but came out of the bottle very quickly and there ended up being waaaaaaaaaaaay too much for my spinach. It left a flavour on the spinach and the whole dish. I have also used the oil in pasta water to keep the noodles from sticking. My only complaint would be that the oil comes out too much at a time; a different nozzle/opening would be great to help stem the flow. The bottle

I usually add flaxseed to my morning smoothies. Never had i thought that I would be using Flaxseed cooking Oil. Mind you, i didn't even know this product existed. I used this oil in three ways. 1) I made chinese stir fry with it 2)I used it as a dip 3)I used it as a salad dressing. As an individual recently diagnosed with high cholesterol, i have been seeking different sources of Omega-3, and after some thorough research it shows that flaxseed oil is one of the best sources. There was indeed a stronger taste than olive oil, however, i was fine with it. I find it mixes really well with spices (garlic powder, seasonings, etc). One really important aspect that you MUST keep in mind... you MUST refrigerate this after opening! It's unusual to refrigerate oils, but i guess this is what keeps this oil tasty! It's a great alternative to olive oil and a great source of Omega-3's. The taste is excellent. Will definitely purchase this product for my home.

I've been looking for an alternative to Organic EVOO to use in cooking and think I've found it! Used this last night to create a wonderful dish using the flaxseed oil together with some par cooked potatoes; green peppers and roasted red peppers. The taste was incredible.

I'm trying to transition away from cooking with olive oil because of it's low smoke point but I'd never used pure flaxseed oil before (just a blend).

OK this is definitely a product I was so excited to try I actually used it the same day it arrived in the mail! To be honest I am a big fan of flaxseeds in general as they have multiple uses and are rich in OMEGA-3 fatty acids which are really good for your cholesterol. I use them all the time in my vegan cooking & baking as an egg substitute. Flaxseed oil is new to me and I did notice it does have a characteristic flavour that may not be everyone's cup of tea, but I think when used properly it will surely enhance any meal. I used it for example to grill veal and I thought it came out well. Only advice for people using this for the first time is to use sparingly, other than that I think this is a great healthy product and it's 100% Canadian!

I also like the healthy properties that flaxseed oil has. I use ground flaxseed in my smoothies, so this is another way to ingest the nutritional seed! The bottle says you can also use it for salad dressings and for dipping - I tried a bit on my finger and it had a very strong flavour. Not sure if I loved it, but maybe it's one of those tastes that you get used to and then like. Looking forward to using it for baking banana bread later this week.

I have tried flaxseed before - whole, ground and capsule form. I had heard many great things about it and that is why I tried incorporating it into my diet. I had never tried flaxseed cooking oil before and I had not been aware that it could be used for cooking. I started off by drizzling it onto my salad. I love the nutty flavour it added. It was a nice change from olive oil. I also tried cooking with it. I used it in a stirfry after reading that it has a high smoke point. This is great to ensure that I can cook my vegetables at a high heat, unlike olive oil for example. However, this seems to be particular to the Alligga brand. The flavour was nice and subtle. I was so impressed to learn how high flaxseed oil is in omega - 3, 6, 9 and it was interesting to learn that this particular brand - Alligga - has a higher omega composition. One of my favourite things about the Alligga product is that it is Canadian! Woohoo! I really like this product and will be purchasing it in the future. I love the taste, even on its own. It has numerous health benefits and is excellent for high heat cooking. Thanks for introducing me to this product.

This is my first introduction to Flaxseed oil and I am amazed at the benefits it has. I have been using Organic Flaxseed Cooking Oil by Alligga for constipation, and it works wonders in having regular bowel moments. I even rubbed a little oil on my dry elbows, and it works great as a moisturizer. I add a few teaspoons in my salad and the Flaxseed oil adds a slight nutty taste, when I would make an egg omelette I would substitute butter for Organic Flaxseed Cooking Oil by Alligga. My favorite part is Flaxseed oil is very rich in Omega-3 acids and it helps lower cholesterol. I would definitely recommend Organic Flaxseed Cooking Oil by Alligga and I will continue to use it.

I think this could be a good alternative to cooking with olive oil. I did not notice any taste with my food. When I was cooking the onions with this oil, it did impart a strong yellow colour onto the onions which was scary at first! But, it didn't impart any flavours. Bonus that it is organic, Canadian and cold pressed! I have yet to try it cold but I will definitely try it in a salad dressing. I use flaxseeds in my smoothies so this is a cool new use.

My first thought was I am not sure about the colour 🙂 my second thought was, I love the way this works in the frying pan and I love the taste of the food. Olive Oil begone, I didn't like the taste of it in my food (healthy fat or not) coconut oil will still have a place in some things but, for 95% of my cooking Alligga will be the first thing I reach for. Taste is so important, it doesn't matter if something is healthy for you, if it doesn't taste good you won't stick with it. This product is easy to Love, one use is all it takes. I will be using it in my ginger cake recipe on the weekend. I have already been spreading the word to my family and friends. This is wonderful.

I very much like this flaxseed oil. It has a strong flavour with a slightly bitter aftertaste, but I like it. I have mixed it with olive oil and ACV for salad dressing. Although it is specifically made to be cooked with I am still weary to expose it to high heat, I want to preserve the nutritional profile as much as possible. One thing that has me confused is how exactly this is different from other flaxseed oil in that it is "okay" to expose it to heat. Usually flaxseed oil has to be refrigerated after extraction and kept cold since it can turn pretty quickly. When I got this in the mail it was warm from the heat outside.

I have wanted to try Flaxseed oil for a while now. My curiosity was piqued having previously used flaxseeds in my favourite smoothies. I recently used this oil in a smoothie I had concocted. The flavour was very light, nutty, and tasty, but not too overpowering. It blends very well with fruits and vegetables. This delicious tasting oil would make a very good dressing on salads. A little piece of heaven consisting of flaxseed, olive, coconut, and canola oils. There's nothing that this powerful combination of oils won't be able to transform, taste wise!

I love the butty flavours this oil has! I;ve been using it in my salad dressings and to use when stir frying thanks to it's high smoke point. It's also a nice way to get some of those omega fatty acids in my diet- bonus points for it being plant based!
AJ D. – Ontario | Rating: 3/5 Stars
After trying various omega3 products, I assumed that unique omega3 flavour was from fish. Turns out it's in this flax oil also. This bright yellow, slightly more viscous oil also had a bit of an oily aftertaste that was still within palatability. Granted, I used it over lightly salted microwaved organic popcorn so the flavour was quite exposed. It was less pronounced when I mixed it with olive oil to roast cauliflower. I'll take advantage of its high smoke point and use it exclusively for stir frying going forward. Love that it's organic. A bit pricey for my budget. Update: I'm now regularly using it on microwave-popped organic popcorn to psych the kids into seeing "butter". Love it.

I really like this oil drizzled in salad, tastes better then olive oil. Thought the taste when used for cooking a little over powering but will definitely purchase this product again for salad dressing.

The bottle was beautiful and the texture of the oil was great but a wee bit over powering. Did not leave a great after taste when sautéed in the chicken I prepared for salad for dinner. Ended up needing to add additional salad dressing to bring down some of the powerful taste.

This Flaxseed Cooking Oil I #gotitfree from Social Nature @socialnature and here's my review of it. I love the fact that it's very healthy, i usually include Flaxseed in my diet because of the high Omega 3 it offers. Very glad to know that it stands a high smoke point, as a Chinese, we stir fry and sauntee a lot so this comes really handy, knowing the fact that it's not killing me if i use this oil for these purposes. The flavour of the oil stays in the food, thankfully not overpowering. I still prefer the extra virgin olive oil taste as raw oil but will use this flaxseed oil for cooking from now on. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone. #trynatural

Just received my bottle of organic flaxseed oil yesterday and immediately used it as a salad dressing It was a perfect addition! Perfect texture - not too thick and not too runny. Delicious nutty aroma and taste that enhanced the veggies rather than overpowering their taste. I am looking forward to trying it in more recipes!

As mentioned already, the Alligga Flaxseed Cooking Oil has a nutty flavor and high smoke point which I found very interesting so I decided to make Chinese hot chili oil with it. I used it in replace of peanut oil and peanuts which turned out great. I also used the Alligga Flaxseed Cooking Oil with eggs and I enjoyed it as well. I was already planning to pack my own food starting next week for the new school year so I can eat more healthy and save some money so this will get a lot of use. The only issue I had with it was when I first opened the bottle after breaking the seal on the cap. The plastic spout came off with the cap while removing it. However, it was easy to put the plastic spout back on. Aside from this, I'm happy with the product and will consider getting it in the future when I run out.

Most of us are not consuming enough Omega-3's and this product is rich in that, thus helping us consume more. I used to take Omega-3 supplements however, I found the pills to be rather large and unappealing in general. This is a perfect solution for me and it is a very versatile product. For instance: tonight for dinner, I applied a generous amount to my spaghetti and topped it with both feta as well as green olives. You can really get creative with this fabulous Canadian product! I can't wait to make a stir-fry and use this Alligga Organic Flaxseed Cooking Oil in it! There are also a ton of delicious recipes on their web site using this oil for: cooking, baking, smoothies, vinaigrettes and many other delicious dishes! There are various benefits from using this and it is also Certified Organic, Non-GMO Certified and it is Kosher.

This oil tasted ok, but I only ever consumed it raw. Flax seed oil should never be heated as it oxidizes and destroys the Omega3s, and I couldn't find any information online as to what this company has done to or added to the oil to make it safe for heating. Without full facts it is hard to make an informed decision.

Alligga Flaxseed Cooking Oil is definitely one of the better flaxseed products on the market, and I was particularly pleased to know that I was using a Canadian product! I was impressed with the smooth texture and consistency. It has a bold flaxseed flavour that is not for the timid, or first-time flaxseed consumer (read: pungent, bitter, nutty, earthy), yet finishes clean on the palate - a nice change from other flax oils I've tried. I was also really happy to find a high-heat safe oil to add to my pantry. I used this product for the first time to saute kale, and then a second time to roast yams/sweet potatoes - in both instances, the results were delicious. My comment would be a caution to new consumers to advise them to use a deft hand when adding Alligga Flaxseed Oil in its raw state - as I mentioned above, the flavour profile is bold and assertive, so it might be best to use sparingly when pairing with milder flavours. I will certainly be using this product in the future.

I was really pleased to receive this product, both because I'm trying to find alternative oils to use in my diet, and because my first experience with flaxseed oil was not great and I was hoping that it was just a matter of brand. I was very pleased to find that this oil is great to use in all sorts of cooking, enhancing the flavour of my of stir fries without making the veges heavy and oily. I have used it to toss on potatoes and add to cooked rice as well as a topping on bread (with and without other spreads, grains and wheat germ) instead of butter or margarine, and I was pleasantly surprised that it adds a very mild, almost nutty flavour so I didn't crave the buttery taste. I was a bit nervous to try it as a thinner in the coleslaw dressing (usually use a bit of almond milk), but I loved it. I find its texture to be much lighter and less oily than other oils, and a taste enhancer rather than taking over and changing my favourite flavours. This is such a versatile product, and I love the fact that I can use it straight out of the refrigerator. I will be interested to see how long it lasts as I don't use oils as often as I did while testing this.

When i received it, i liked the nice sleek look of the oil bottle. definitely attractive & would definitely look healthy on the shelf. When I opened it, I smelt it and I was instantly hesitant to use it because of the earthy smell. I thought it would make my food taste that way. Much to my surprise, It actually didn't! you couldn't really taste it in any of the food that I cooked. I have used this for roasted chicken, stir fry's cooking eggs... it's great for so many uses! Lucky for me this flaxseed oil has a high smoke point so I was able to cook on a higher heat than normal cooking oil. I was very impressed and satisfied with this oil.

I had been wanting to try flaxseed oil for quite some time but for some reason had yet to purchase it....I wish I knew what I was missing sooner! I've struggled a bit with finding an oil that works for me - I love olive oil for salad dressing and finishing dishes, but I don't like the fact that it doesn't have a very high smoke point. Conversely, coconut oil is great for cooking, but not so much for dressing. Alligga Flaxseed oil covers both bases, by having a light enough flavour to use as a salad dressing, but also being robust enough to withstand my stir frys! It adds a really nice element to my salads and doesn't feel heavy at all. I tried the recipe it came with and made an oil-based pasta, and it was DELICIOUS. The flavour of the oil really stands out so you don't need to add a ton, which keeps the calories low. All in all, this is totally something I would recommend to my friends and anyone looking for a new addition to their healthy cooking.

I love the Organic Flaxseed Cooling Oil. I have used it in rhubarb muffins, as a salad dressing and fried pork chops with this oil, each use was a perfect result. Organic flaxseed cooking oil has a light nutty flavour and held up to the high temperature of frying. I will continue to use this quality product. Thank you for the testing experience on this product.

I have never had flaxseed oil before but definitely have seen it in the market being sold at very high price. The food cooked with this oil is flavorful and suitable for all type of cooking. The next dish we'll try to make salad with it as suggested. Also, knowing that it is produced in Canada with organic material is also very important to me.

This oil works well for both salad dressings and cooking. I don't find it to add much of a flavour to dishes. I would recommend this oil due to its high omega 3 content and the fact that it's heat-safe.

My first thought - interesting. My second thought - good source of Omega 3 fatty acids. My third thought - this could be an ideal way to get more Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) into my families diet! After trying Alligga's Organic Flaxseed Cooking Oil, I was impressed. No overpowering taste when cooking with it or adding it to baking. This is a product I plan to keep in my repertoire of oils and definitely encourage others to do the same.
Erik K. – British Columbia | Rating: 4/5 Stars
Great to have flaxseed oil as an option to cook with, for dishes that can benefit from the nutty flavor, especially stirfrying. It's probably too expensive to use for a lot of deep-frying, but it would be interesting to try it and see how it effects the flavor.

I finally found time to use this product. On Sunday morning, I try cooking my favourite breakfast dish, hash browns. Honestly, although smoking point of flaxseed oil is theoretically higher, I don't seem to see any difference during actual cooking. Making hash browns is just as easy as always. simple and delicious. With the flaxseed oil, an unique nutty flavor was added to the hash browns and make it more perfect than ever. Just for the sake of it, I also put the flaxseed oil on my toast. As surprising as it was, with the flaxseed oil enhanced the flavor of the hash browns so perfectly, it really does not work so well substituting butter. Although I really enjoyed The flexed oil myself, I just don't think it is for everyone. The strong taste is a bit hard to get used to and the use is limited to certain dish that fit the taste of the flax oil.

I used this in a stir fry to brown the meat. It was better than regular oil because I could use a higher temp to cook the meat getting a nice browning on the meat. It didn't leave a greasyness to the meal. I would definitely consider buying this again.

First time trying flaxseed oil. I am always interested in finding healthy new fats to be incorporated into my diet. I used this oil in its natural state, adding it to salad dressings. Very good. Nice change from the robust taste of olive oil. I have not yet tried heating it as I do not know how the oil stands up the heat. Highly recommend in its "raw" state.
Lisa W. – Victoria | Rating: 4/5 Stars
I used the oil mostly for cooking (stirfrying or with eggs). I liked it - the taste wasn't too 'flax-ey' like when I've had it straight up and not cooked. Considering all of the health benefits of flax oil, this could be a really great kitchen essential...I think I 'd need a bit more convincing to feel that cooking with it was healthy - there has just been so much education around not heating flax oil, I need to believe! But nice mellow somewhat nutty flavour.
Monica G. – British Columbia | Rating: 5/5 Stars
I'm really enjoying my bottle of flaxseed oil, it's light, easy to use and doesn't have any strong scents or flavours. I really like the fact that it has a high smoke point, which worked well when I wanted to sear some steaks without having the flavour of the fat being imparted into the meat itself. I'm going to try it next with some za'atar, I think that'll be fabulous.

I absolutely loved this flaxseed cooking oil. The delicious flavour really adds a whole new dimension to my cooking. I love making sautéed vegetables and i find that this oil, because of it's high smoke point is perfect. It's versatile, healthy and almost guilt free. Have you tried making hummus with it yet?! You definitely have to. I'm a believer! This will be a new staple in my pantry and it should be one in yours, too.

alligga organic flaxseed cooking oil was the product I tried. When researching it, I found that although you can fry with it, it is even better not to. Since learning this, I decided to make a tuna salad sandwich with it. It was fabulous! The flavour it added was just right. I really enjoyed it. Way more than I thought I would. Even my young kids loved it. I will definately buy more in the future. I am impressed by all the health findings on this oil. It was light to work with & smelled good. I appreciate the opportunity to try this product. P.s the tuna recipie is; A large tin of tuna in its own juice, 1 finely chopped shallot, 2 finely chopped radishes, 1 piece of celery finely chopped, 1 tablespoon of mild mustard, 1 tablespoon of organic flax seed oil , a pinch of cayenne pepper. It was so good!

Organic Flax-seed cooking oil by Alligga added such a nice nutty flavor to my salads, quinoa even cooked my egg-whites with it. My favorite discovery was putting the flax-seed oil mixed with some siracha sauce on popcorn, was delicious! I really liked that three was a very high smoke point, it made it so much easier to use this oil while cooking. Even if you don't like to cook you can just drizzle this lovely flax-seed oil on top of salads, it gives a nice nutty taste! Another thing I did with this oil was use it instead of olive oil for making home-made humus! Really where ever you use olive oil or canola oil i recommend switching it for this healthy flax-seed oil. My last hint is to make organic kale chips by drizzling this oil and a little bit of rock salt on kale then baking in the oven until nice and crispy. You are going to find so many uses for this amazing flax-seed oil!

The taste and colour were spot on when I used this for a salad dressing or in a cold slaw but when I tried to actually cook with it while frying mushrooms in a pan they stuck to the pan. I tried adding more oil and still didn't releive my problem. As this says " Cooking Oil" right on the bottle I feel as if it is more of a eating oil and not to be cooked with. I think I will stick with my organic grape seed oil instead as this oil does every job I need it to.

In the past, I've had flaxseed oil for the nutritional benefits, not necessarily for the taste. However, I did find with this product that the typical flax oil taste is diminished significantly when it's used for pan frying/sauteeing things. I sauteed a number of things from meats to vegetables to savory pancakes. Everything turned out great! And I suspect that healthwise, it's better than all those so-called "extra virgin oils" out there. I would buy this product.

Thanks for introducing me to this great product. I normally use EVOO or coconut oil for most cooking I do, but they do always smoke when I am cooking a stir fry or something that requires high heat.. This product does not smoke on max heat! It does have a flavour, as do most oils. I made my AM eggs with it, and the taste almost overpowered my eggs so I will only use it for very flavourful meal that require a high heat, such as my stirfrys. I love that it is organic, GMO free, Canadian, and chemical/preservative free. I only wish it had a little less flavour so I could replace, instead of supplement, the oils I currently use. I've used it in the oven as well, and there was absolutely no smoking on broil setting. First time using the broiler and NOT setting off the fire alarm!

We've been adding ground flaxseed to our oatmeal for a few years now but never thought to try flaxseed oil. The oil definitely smells like the ground flaxseed but stronger. I added the oil to our oatmeal, worried that my kids would be able to taste/smell it but they didn't notice anything different. Phew! I also made french toast with it instead of my usual coconut oil or butter and again, the kids didn't notice it. I will continue adding it to oatmeal and frying with it. I did try to dip bread in the oil/balsamic vinegar mix, but the flaxseed scent was too much for me. I will experiment a bit more (baking and on salads) but I think I'll stick with my first love - coconut oil.

I was nervous when a curry chicken recipe called for 1/2 cup of cooking oil. I had intended to use the Alligga flax oil because of it's high-heat capacity, but I was thrilled by the lightness of the oil as well. The curry was light and delicious and my fears of heavy oiliness were alleviated by this product. I'm now a loyal customer and will look for Alligga when I shop! I've continued to use Alligga flaxseed oil to season my cast iron frying pans. Because it is able to withstand high temperatures, it does a great job of providing a stick-free coating on the pans.

I've used Alligga flaxseed oil in a few different ways, and so far have liked it for all applications! I often roast vegetables and in the past have used canola oil. I love that using the flaxseed oil actually adds flavour to the veggies while roasting them - and the high smoke point lets me continue to use the high oven temperatures I usually do. I've also used it as a substitute for 1/2 of the vegatable oil in breakfast muffins. It added omega-3's and a subtle nutty flavour! I drizzled some over homemade hummus, which was also delicious. My dog also likes a little bit on top of his food a few days a few - he goes crazy for it and I swear his coat is shinier! Overall, I would suggest if you like the taste of flaxseed and are looking for an oil with benefits beyond olive oil and canola/vegetable oil.

I like that fact that it has a high smoke point and is organic and healthy. It's fine if I used it for cooked foods (i.e. saute or stir-fry), it had a very subtle nutty flavour. However, I wasn't a big fan of using it as a salad dressing or in dips...it was too strong and almost bitter. If I prefer milder oils like grapeseed, avocado or sunflower which also has high smoke points.

I used this oil for stovetop searing a steak, for sauteeing broccoli, and for scrambling eggs and it worked beautifully for all uses. The only thing I would recommend is that you start it in a cold pan; for the eggs the pan was already hot and the smell of the oil was quite high when it hit the hot pan. I was considering adding some of it to my cat's food, since I've read that flaxseed is good for their coats and digestion, but honestly there are so many cooking uses for this nutty, high smoke point oil I'll just save it for myself.

I always heard that you should not cook with flaxseed oil and should only drizzle it on raw vegetables/salads, or onto already cooked foods. This oil tasted fine when we cooked with it; it has a more noticeable flavour than olive or canola, or most other vegetable oils, but pleasant enough. It seems to work like a regular vegetable oil. I have no idea if it is healthy or not, but according to this product's literature and website, they are the first high-heat safe flaxseed oil, and somehow the oil retains most of its Omega-3 content. A neat find!

Soooooo good! I love this stuff! The Organic Flaxseed Cooking Oil from Alligga is the first flaxseed oil I have ever used. I really does have a high smoke point - I tossed some veggies in the oil and (because I was in a bit of a hurry) roasted them in the oven at 425F, and they were perfect! The oil added a nice flavour - I'd usually use olive oil at a lower temp, and love the flavour that gives, but the flaxseed oil actually had a nicer flavour, kind of nutty, which went nicely with root veggies. I used it to dress a pasta dish, and although it's a cooking oil, I actually used it with balsamic vinegar as a bread dip, and as the oil in a homemade Italian dressing. It looks like the Alligga website has some recipes too - I am looking forward to trying some of them out. I love that this product is local & Canadian, organic, and especially non-GMO!! Will DEFINITELY be purchasing!!

The flavour wasn't quite what I expected, as it wasn't very nutty to me, but it had a nice light fresh taste. I have been using it mostly in salads, where it works really well with apple cider vinegar, and brings out the flavours in my meal-sized salads of kale, nuts and seeds, green onion, tomatoes and different cheeses, usually feta and/or grilled haloumi. I've also used the flaxseed oil when grilling portabella mushrooms with a little soy sauce. This has worked really well! It enhanced the portabellas and cooked them to perfection. I really like this oil, as it's very versatile and performs well both in salads and in cooking! I think it's very important to use healthy oils like this, that don't break downin cooking and retain their health benefits, such as omega-3. I'm quite conscious of what I eat, and I will definitely be adding this to my regularly used oils.

Kimberly Y. – British Columbia | Rating: 3/5 Stars
I thought this oil paired quite nicely with my friend dishes, such as egg and stews. I have not tried it with salads yet but I am not sure that I would because of it's unique and strong nutty taste which tends to stand out and not fit in with any food that I have tried. However, for some reason, I found that the flaxseed oil tasted better with dishes which were hot because then the texture of the oil stood out rather than the taste. I did not like the false nutrition labeling which promoted the large content of the Omega-3 oil but which did not explain that the Omega- 3 oil cannot be all absorbed by the human body. Thus, this product did not seem extraordinarily healthy to me. However, I enjoyed the oil and would recommend it to my friends which are looking for an oil which is healthier than corn oil and fries at a higher temperature.

I was very excited to try this product. I used it to stir fry some spiralized yams and black beans and topped the dish of with some Coconut Bacon flavored Hippie Snacks. It made for a tasty, healthy meal I could be proud of. The flax oil had a nutty flavor that paired well with yams and complimented the smoky flavor of the Hippie Snacks as well. I love the fact the oil has a high smoke point. All of my cook ware is cast iron so Alligga Organic Flaxseed Cooking Oil works perfectly for any frying I may want to do:) I also tried it for cooking pancakes...awesome. It gave the buttermilk pancakes a subtle nutty flavor. I'm proud that this is a Canadian product and that it is Non-GMO certified. I just bought an inspiralizer and am dying to try this product on some fresh salads. What a wonderful product, A perfect addition for a healthy diet and lifestyle:)

I love the Organic Flaxseed Cooking Oil by Alligga! I've used it for frying food (veggies, eggs, etc) and in salad dressings. Although it has a bit of an odour, it has a mild, clean taste. I love the fact that it's Canadian made, non-GMO, has omega 3's and has nothing bad for you added to it. I would definitely buy this product and recommend it to friends!

I baked chicken, roasted small potatoes and fried pork chops with the oil and enjoyed the flavour ..no oily taste , no burning and no oily/greasy residue. And you don't need to use alot as well. Very welcoming in my kitchen, thank you

I love flax seeds alone, I put them in my morning shake every day, but somehow I never knew that they made flaxseed oil! I am a vegetarian, so Omega 3's from a non animal source (especially Canadian) is a blessing. My first impression of tasting Alligga flaxseed oil right from the bottle was that it was a little bitter. I'm not a huge fan of strong olive oil, and this is a bit reminiscent of that. But the flavour changed to the nutty smooth flavour that I am used to from ground flax. Being unsure of what to make with it first, I decided to just use it on pasta. Now I love plain pasta with just garlic and margarine, so I hoped that the flavour didn't overpower the plain pasta. Well it didn't, it was a nice compliment to the pasta and garlic. This product would be great with bread and balsamic vinegar. Alligga came with some great recipe ideas on the bottle and online and I look forward to trying some of them once the weather cools down enough for me to want to stay for an extended period in a hot kitchen. I may even try adding it to my morning shake!

Organic Flaxseed Cooking Oil is a handy tool to have in your kitchen. Whether it be for eggs in the morning or a salad in the afternoon. The high smoke point of flax seed oil allows you to get the pan nice and hot and quickly cook your eggs when you need quick fix in the morning. The nutty flavour provides great depth as a base in a simple salad dressing. I like the flaxseed cooking oil and would definitely recommend giving it a try.

I have not used olive oil for a long time. Instead I have been using coconut oil as it has a really good and nutty aroma and cleaner as it has high smoke point when cooking. I was surprised to find flaxseed oil to be even better than coconut oil! Not just for cooking, I also use it for salad dressings too!

I used this first to dip bread in, and was not disappointed. It has a light and fresh nutty kind of taste. I like how it's Canadian, and made without preservatives or additives 🙂 The package itself is well designed and makes it look appetizing, and I really enjoyed the information flyer that came with it, I feel more informed and likely to buy this myself in the near future.

Organic flaxseed cooking oil is a good oil to have in the kitchen. It is versatile oil, I used it in a few different dishes. It does have a strong somewhat bitter nutty flavour, but I didn't find it overwhelming in any of the dishes I made. I like that it has a high-smoke point and that it has omega-3 in it.
Sarah C. – British Columbia | Rating: 4/5 Stars
I used Organic flaxseed cooking oil in several different dishes. I used it as cooking oil, as part of a pasta sauce and two different types of salad dressing. The flavour is quite strong so it is best used in dishes that are full of bold flavours. The high smoke point was a plus, and I love that it is a good source of omega-3.

Great cooking oil. I usually use olive oil (bad for cooking at high heat) or coconut oil (which solidifies and makes the food extra weighty) so Alligga Organic Flaxseed Cooking Oil is the perfect solution! It's light flavour is perfect for sautéing.
Daisy Y. – British Columbia | Rating: 4/5 Stars
I love the fact that this oil is organic and healthy! The nuttiness is apparent when using it as a salad dressing mixture, which gives added flavour, but it gets lost when using it for cooking. Because of that, I would recommend using it uncooked, as that probably retains more health benefits as well and is not worth the extra cost when used as a cooking oil. I had tried it cooking a stir-fry in a cast iron wok and didn't notice any different from other oils so it can definitely be used as an alternative. I'm not sure the price of this product, but it's likely more than regular cooking oil so dependent on your perception of health benefits of cooked oil, that'll likely drive your decision on if you want to use the flaxseed oil for uncooked enjoyment or general cooking.

Danika M. – British Columbia | Rating: 3/5 Stars
So far I've only used this product while cooking. Unfortunately there is an off-putting fishy smell when I add the oil to the pan. Also I am still not sure if it is safe/healthy to heat flaxseed oil. I wish the oil would have come with a booklet of information on how it is treated differently to achieve higher smoke point. I need to try it cool in a salad dressing. Packaging design could use some refinement - there is too much information on the label. I am on the fence with this product. Not sure it replaces grapeseed oil in my pantry.

I've used this oil a few times now. I've cooked with it once and used it as a dressing. It works well when cooking and doesn't add too much excess flavours to the food. It is also good as an oil base for dressings and gives a nice finish to the taste.

I used it when I made couscous and it added a nice taste to it. I also used it when I was cooking ground beef for burritos. I found it hard to find things to do with it. I am so used to using extra virgin olive oil for cooking thinks. But I would probably use it in things like couscous again. Not sure I would purchase it though because I already need to buy olive oil and I didnt find enough uses for it myself. I will keep trying it though and that might change. It is a product I need more than 2 weeks to try out to make my most informed decision on. I do like that it is a Canadian product though.
Jessyka M. – British Columbia | Rating: 3/5 Stars
I love the idea of getting my omega benefits from flax seed in an oil form. This product was great in salad dressings. I made an oil vinagrette using half flax oil, half olive oil and I really could not taste much difference. Although I did miss the nutty flavour of a roasted flax seed, I found that served cold I really enjoyed this oil. I also used the flax oil for coating roasted vegetables and sautéing in a pan. I would not recommend this oil for heating purposes. It provides a very fishy smell and alters the taste slightly as well. Overall, I think this is a great product for cold applications such as dressings but I would avoid heated applications. It is a great way of adding omegas to your diet.

I appreciate that this is an organic, unrefined, non-GMO Canadian Product. Supporting Canadian food producers is important to me. I have not cooked with it as I rarely "fry" my veggies; I usually steam them and then put organic, virgin coconut oil on top. However, I have tried it " straight-up", right off a spoon - and I was disappointed that I did not find it to have the "nutty flavour" I was expecting. I find it to be rather bitter tasting. I am adding it in small amounts to my salad dressings, so that I can enjoy the nutritional benefits without the bitter flavour.

This oil boasts being North America's first high-heat safe flaxseed oil. I put that to the test and made french fries. This oil performed better than our usual vegetable oil of choice and though I thought it would add a bitter taste to the fries, they turned out to be golden, crispy on the outside, soft but cooked inside, and had a bit of a nutty flavour, which enhanced the flavour. That the fries were soaking up Omega-3 was a secret I didn't share until after we ate them. Great job, Alligga - not sure how you created this super product, but I was impressed.

I have never tried Flaxseed Oil before now. However I will continue using Flaxseed Oil by Alligga as it is made in Canada, Gluten Free and certified organic.

My husband and I are quite particular about the oils we use for cooking. We use only coconut oil and grass fed butter or ghee butter. On occasion we have used avocado oil. The coconut oil, ghee and avocado oil all have a distinct flavour that is not always appreciated; however the flax seed oil has been such a nice alternative with its light taste.

My husband and I aren't too familiar with flaxseed oil; we've used it a few times but only for salad dressings. We didn't even know that Alligga has a recipe section by Chef Alana Peckham on their website, so when the bottle of flaxseed oil arrived on our doorstep, we picked out a few recipes to try over the weekend. Friday night: Kimchi fried rice. Chef Peckham's recipe was easy to follow and very easy to cook, although we replaced the pork with tofu and omitted the Chinese sausages. We had only used vegetable or sesame oil with Asian cooking before and were surprised at how well the flaxseed oil blended with the kimchi and Korean hot sauce flavour. In fact, I think that it added an extra kick to the dish with its own subtle nut-like flavour. Needless to say it was delicious and even looked a lot like the photo of the dish on the Alligga website! Saturday night: Flaxseed oil linguine. Again, we'd only ever used olive oil for Italian recipes, as we really like the light and delicate olive oil taste. This recipe was quick and easy, and the flaxseed seemed to really bring out the flavour of the cherry tomatoes and white wine, while its own slightly nutty flavour was delicious too. Call us converts; we'll definitely be using more flaxseed oil for Italian recipes. Sunday morning: Blueberry coconut orange smoothie. We were skeptical at first; who puts oil into a smoothie? We're smoothie junkies but have never tossed in any sort of oil. But in went the flaxseed oil, blueberries, orange juice and coconut milk into the blender. The resulting smoothie was, well, smooth, creamy and delicious. We didn't really taste any flaxseed, just the blueberries and orange juice. That being said, it was such an easy way to add in extra health benefits the other ingredients don't have, like omega-3, 6 and 9 fatty acids. We'll probably be adding flaxseed oil to smoothies in the future. So apart from the fact that flaxseed oil is very versatile and easy to cook with, we were impressed with the health benefits. As we're both vegetarians, we do have to pay attention to what we eat to watch out for animal products and essential nutrients from meat that we have to get elsewhere. I can see flaxseed oil becoming a staple in our diet. Additionally, Alligga's flaxseed oil is non-GMO, organic and Canadian - big bonuses too as we prefer supporting Canadian companies with ethics. We'd highly recommend this product! We've nearly already used up our sample bottle of Alligga flaxseed oil and it's on our shopping list for the upcoming weekend!
