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 oils.
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.
Because of Udo’s committment to the field of fats and oils, there are now a variety of high-quality, EFA-rich oils available in health food stores and dispensaries around the world. Udo’s contribution to the fields of health and nutrition, along with his pioneering work to establish standards of quality for oil manufacture will continue to benefit humanity for decades to come.
