Flaxseed oil is the richest source of Omega 3 (Alpha Linolenic Acid), and is therefore much sought-after as a popular dietary supplement, particularly in Western style diets, which are deficient in this essential fatty acid. Flaxseed oil is added to foods such as rice, vegetable and pasta dishes, salads, cereals, soups, yoghurt and tofu, milk and soy drinks and fruit smoothies.
As mentioned, our bodies cannot produce essential fatty acids (EFA’s), so we must obtain them from a food source. Flaxseed oil contains both of the EFA’s Omega 6 and Omega 3, but it is most often recommended by health practitioners for its high level of Omega 3 (at 55-65%, twice that of fish oils).
Every human cell uses EFA’s and cannot exist without them. Research and clinical experience demonstrates that Omega 3 has beneficial results in many illnesses, such as heart disease, cancers, diabetes, arthritis, asthma, premenstrual syndrome, allergies, inflammatory tissue conditions, water retention and skin conditions.
The Stoney Creek Story
Founded in 1992 by Fred and Coral Davies, Stoney Creek Oil Products is based on the Davies family farm near Talbot, in Central Victoria - about two hours north-west of Melbourne.
The family company originated as a value adding business on the fourth-generation farming property, to contribute organically-grown products to the health food market, to provide employment opportunities for the local community - and provide tangible, ongoing support for Australian farmers.
Extensive market research in the early 1990’s had revealed 95% of cold- pressed oils on the Australian market were imported, expensive and of unsuitable quality. This provided an environment favourable to the development of new products - particularly in the burgeoning Flaxseed market.
In response to demand for its products, Stoney Creek has recently expanded production capacity significantly, and is now a major processor of specialty edible oils in the Australian market. The company is recognised as a market leader for freshness and purity of its cold-pressed oilseed products – particularly premium quality organic Flaxseed oils and Flaxseed meal.
Stoney Creek continues to foster sustainable farming, and supports the rights of Australians to consume foods that are nutritious and not genetically altered. To that end, Stoney Creek now embraces minimum till and pasture cropping methodology, and stands proudly upon their commitment to Healthy Farm.
