Flaxseed oil differs from whole and ground flaxseed by being devoid of both fiber and lignans. It is a unique oil in that it is composed of 73% polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA), 18% monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFA) and 9% saturated fatty acids (SFA), making it a low-saturated fat food. Flaxseed oil is richest vegetarian source of the omega 3 (n-3) fatty acid, alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), which comprises 55% of the total fatty acids. The percent of fat as ALA in flaxseed oil is 5.5 times higher than the next highest sources, walnuts and canola oil. Alpha Linolenic Acid (ALA) is the essential Omega 3 fatty acid, which is converted in our body to functional lipid molecules EPA (Eicosa Pentaenoic Acid) and DHA (Docosa Hexaenoic Acid) as and which required.
