Camelina of Sweden is 100% organic oil and dry-roasted seeds from the flowering plant Camelina (Camelina sativa), cultivated by the company By Ranch AB outside of Nyköping in Sweden. Camelina is a crop that takes functional food to the next level for those who want to live and eat healthy. Both the oil and the seeds contain high levels of important nutrients like omega 3. They also have a wonderful flavour and lots of exciting uses in the kitchen. Thanks to its moisturizing properties and high concentration of vitamin E (antioxidants), camelina oil is also very well suited for use in everything from skin- and hair care to nutritious animal feed.

Studies have shown that health benefits from omega fatty acids not only depend on the concentration of fatty acids. For an optimal nutritional uptake, the balance between them needs to be optimal, because omega 3 and omega 6 compete for space in the body’s cells. If we are consuming too much omega 6 in relation to omega 3 it can have negative effects on the health. Our modern eating habits mean that we consume 15 to 20 times as much omega 6 as 3, or 15:1-20:1. To achieve this all-important balance, it is recommended that you reduce your intake to only 1 up to 5 times as much omega 6 as 3, hence 5:12.
