We provide high quality Ethiopia linseed oil to the local and export market. We source the raw fresh Ethiopia linseed oil from family growers from the country.
Ethiopia linseed oil comes from flax plant (Linum usitatissimum) which has been in agricultural society for up to 8000 years. In the near East and Egypt, the plant served as fabric for preserving mummies in tombs. Its cultivation may have spread from Egypt into Ethiopia in unknown times. Locals usually take flax in ground form and mix it with other ingredients to form the Telba creamy tea. It is rich in antioxidants for controlling inflammation.
The main use of linseed oil is in industries as a binding agent. It usually has strong viscosity which also dries strongly to form a see-through film in just one day. It is a common agent for colorants, varnishing chemicals and linoleum coating. It features in making soap, pen ink as well as paints. The edible flaxseed oil, which we also process contains omega 3 fatty acids for good cholesterol control in the body.The dietary fiber content is also high for the control of constipation.
We source flax seeds from different parts of the country where the locals refer to the plant’s seeds as Telba. Our sources are only family growers though the plant is grown mainly on large-scale for the chemical industries. We select the fresh seeds from farmers with between 1 and 1.5 hectares of land. They grow the plants under organic conditions.
We extract Ethiopia linseed oil by cold pressing the flax seeds. Each seed comes with around 38 to 44 percent of oil content. We first of all grind the capsules which cover around 6 seeds per outer kernel which leaves a mixture of the kernel and seeds for processing. We then pass the ground parts into a distillation press that squeezes the oil part of the ground seeds between steel rollers. This leads to a crude brownish yellow or golden liquid that can have traces of green in it. In most cases, the smell at this stage is usually quite sharp. This consists of the unrefined Ethiopia linseed oil. It is also common by the name flaxseed oil as it is fit for consumption.
In most commercial formats, however, linseed oil is sold in refined form. It is not edible and contains other solvents so that it can feature in industrial use. Unlike the flaxseed version, above, which we extract by cold press only in unrefined form, for this version we use a warm press. We also add solvents to remove all reserves of the oil for commercial use. Boiling also follows for this version.
Your can avail the edible linseed oil in form of small bottles of 250 milliliters to 1 liter tins, PET or glass makes. We also have the commercial version of the Ethiopia linseed oil for industrial use in 55 gallon or 208 liter drums. This can go to as low as 5 gallons or roughly 19 liters. Each package comes with clear labeling that indicates the date of processing and packing. We also provide details of the shipping condition to prevent contamination between the two versions.
We store Ethiopia linseed oil under temperatures of 5° C. This maintains the compositional balance and keeps the shelf life for up to two years after purchasing. We maintain the same temperatures during the refrigerated truck transportation phase.
