We know our Flaxseed Cooking Oil has a great flavour with amazing health benefits, but we wanted to hear what the health conscious consumer thought.

Social Nature is a social product sampling community that helps people try natural healthy consumer goods for FREE in exchange for writing a product review on social media.

Over the summer of 2015, they conducted a product review for the Alligga Organic Cooking Oil which garnered over 400 reviews. This is what they had to say:


Anita S. – British Columbia | Rating: 5/5 Stars

Love this Flaxseed cooking oil! A friend told me about this, but I never got around to buying it to try. I am so glad I was able to try it through Socialnature. I love the slight nutty flavor it gave my dumplings when I pan fried them. It gave it new life. My kids loved it and doesn't even know that the oil has omega three health benefits. I would definitely continue to use it and recommend it to my family and friends.



Ryan P. – British Columbia | Rating: 4/5 Stars

Use this oil just like any other. I don't really notice a difference when cooking, but it's nice to know it is a healthier option then other brands.



Mansoor S. – British Columbia | Rating: 5/5 Stars

awesome just started taking flaxseed oil for about a month now an see a huge difference in my skin nails an hair,yay for flaxseed oil. I also found flaxseed oil stops me craving sugar and balances my blood sugar.



Holly T. – British Columbia | Rating: 4/5 Stars

In the past, I've had flaxseed oil for the nutritional benefits, not necessarily for the taste. However, I did find with this product that the typical flax oil taste is diminished significantly when it's used for pan frying/sauteeing things. I sauteed a number of things from meats to vegetables to savory pancakes. Everything turned out great! And I suspect that healthwise, it's better than all those so-called "extra virgin oils" out there. I would buy this product.
