People often worry about linseed oil being out of the fridge. There is a lot of mythology about this and even though the fridge is the best place to store it really it isn’t something you need to be too worried about. This new Flax Farm article on Facebook explains the technicalities of storing linseed oil for your health and to keep the flavour.

One of the essentials of the Budwig Diet: Cold-pressed linseed oil and extra virgin coconut oil
Lots of easily digestible nutrition and one of the best vegan butter alternatives; if you want a tasty butter alternative you can’t do better than oleolux. Continue reading What is Oleolux?
Oleolux is a savoury butter or topping for food created by Dr Johanna Budwig. It is a rich golden-yellow blend of cold-pressed linseed (flax) oil and raw coconut oil delicately enhanced with onion and garlic. Cholesterol-free, rich in Omega-3 and other beneficial fats, it makes a healthy alternative to butter, cream or olive oil in everyday meals for anyone looking for tasty food and a healthier lifestyle. The garlic and onion are healthy additions and probably help the absorption of the omega-3.
Ingredients for Oleolux:
125g Cold-Pressed Linseed (Flax) Oil
- 250g Cold-Pressed Coconut Oil
- 1 Medium Onion
- 10 cloves garlic mashed
Weigh the Linseed Oil into a suitable container, preferably glass that has a lid, or can be covered, it needs to be large enough to take the coconut oil as well. Place it in the freezer for 20 minutes.
Melt coconut oil in a large pan from which it is going to be easy to pour the oil.
Slice the onion and cook at a very gentle heat so that it is lightly straw coloured after 15 minutes.
Add the crushed garlic cloves and cook for a further 3 minutes.
Remove from heat, allow to cool a little and strain through a sieve into the chilled linseed oil and put in the fridge to cool. When it has set it is ready to use.
Store in the fridge.
Best used within a month.
How to Use Oleolux
- Melt into cooked veg, potatoes and buckwheat.
- Use instead of butter on bread.
- Use to fry with; though if using oleolux for frying do not heat for more than 1-3 mins and then only at a gentle heat.
- Stir into risotto, lentils and soup.
Buckwheat with Oleolux
Melt 50g oleolux in a warm pan. Add 150g raw whole buckwheat groats (grains) and stir gently over a gentle heat for 3 minutes, then add 250ml boiling water and simmer very gently for 15-30 mins or until soft.
This can be made into a risotto style dish by using low salt veggie stock instead of water, adding sliced veg. such as onions, celery. carrots, mushrooms, at the very start or for softer veg such as spinach 3-10 mins from the end of cooking and sprinkle with chopped herbs, black pepper, cayenne, yeast flakes, etc.

Sugar, the Warburg Hypostesis, cell respiration and oxygen
Sugar is a complete no-no on the Budwig diet. See the Warburg hypothesis about the lack of correct respiration which allowed cancer cells to fuel themselves by effectively fermenting sugar in the absence of sufficient oxygen. This is called glycolysis or non-oxidative breakdown of glucose. In 1924 the Nobel laureate, Otto Heinrich Warburg, proposed that sugar allows cancer cells and cause tumours to grow, This was the foundation for the recommendation for cancer patients to avoid sugar.
