Can I cook with Balance Oil?
Dramatic heat will destroy the double bonds of the lipids, which makes them rancid, so it is best to add after cooking. For great recipes using Balance Oil, check out our Recipe Blog. Please refrigerate after opening.
I heard we should avoid Omega 6’s…
Oxidized Omega 6’s found in heated oils are not good for you. Our products use an unrefined, non-oxidized Omega 6 from Safflower Oil which contains essential fatty acids pivotal to the health of our mitochondria and our muscular function. Unfortunately, most Omega 6 sources are now limited in the USA due to the introduction of hybrid oils that are high oleic. Ours is naturally high linoleic. The most concentrated source of linoleic acid is in whole organic raw seeds like sunflower, chia and pumpkin seeds. Omega 6 fatty acids evolve into Prostaglandin 1 series (from linoleic to gamma linolenic to dihomogammalinoleic into PG1, a powerful anti-inflammatory Prostaglandin) and Arachidonic into PG2 which overall turns on responses and is one kind of inflammatory response. Arachidonic acid is an essential fatty acid. We must consume it, we cannot synthesize it.
