Father of "Organic, Unrefined Flax
Oil" & Udo's
Choice™ Oil Blend:
Udo Erasmus, Ph.D., introduced the importance
of essential fats (EFA's) derived from organic flax seeds to the world. He pioneered
methods for producing unrefined oils made with health in mind
which are still used today by manufacturers of flax and other
Starting in the mid-1980's, Udo popularized
the use of flax oil through an exhaustive itinerary of
public lectures, which eventually led to TV and radio interviews.
His groundbreaking book, Fats that Heal
Fats That Kill, became
the industry's bible on fats. Later he developed an oil blend
which is an improvement on flax oil, offering a better ratio
of Omega-3 to Omega-6.
This oil blend is free of trans-fats
and contains an optimum balanced level of all Essential Fatty
Acids necessary for health.

of fats and oils, there are now a variety of high-quality, EFA-rich oils available

oil manufacture will continue to benefit humanity for decades
