OHAWA Company: Introducing the first premium cold-pressed flaxseed oil in Vietnam

On July 15th, 2023, in Ho Chi Minh City, OHAWA Vegetable Oil Company (OHAWA Company) launched the first premium heat-stable cold-pressed flaxseed oil product in Vietnam under the OHAWA brand.

According to Mr. Vo Minh Minh, the CEO of OHAWA Vegetable Oil Company, OHAWA Flaxseed Oil is high in nutrients, rich in natural plant-based Omega-3 up to 8g/15ml (approximately 1 tablespoon). This is why flaxseeds are known as the "queen" of seeds and are popular in countries like Canada, Russia, the United States, China, and Kazakhstan.

To preserve the maximum amount of Omega 3-6-9 in flaxseeds, OHAWA oil is cold-pressed only once using exclusive advanced cold-pressing technology from Canada.

Especially, with a high smoke point of 250°C, OHAWA is the only flaxseed oil in the market that is safe for daily cooking without compromising its nutritional value. This is a significant advantage of OHAWA flaxseed oil compared to other vegetable oils rich in Omega 3-6-9, certified by the Quality Measurement Technical Center of the Ministry of Science and Technology with test and analysis result number: 01791/N3.22/ĐG.

OHAWA Flaxseed Oil, with its high nutritional content and natural Omega-3 fatty acids, has positive effects on cardiovascular health, blood pressure, brain function, cholesterol elimination, prevention of arterial plaque, coronary artery disease, reduced blood fat levels, and enhanced immune system.

OHAWA is the exclusive distributor of heat-stable flaxseed oil in the current market. The product utilizes advanced heat-stable cold-pressing technology from Canada and is 100% imported and produced in Vietnam.

With the desire to bring a high-quality international product from Canada for the health of Vietnamese consumers, OHAWA Flaxseed Oil is confident in being the premium vegetable oil distributor in the market, contributing to improving community health, shared Mr. Vo Minh Minh, the CEO of OHAWA.

Flaxseeds, scientifically known as Linum usitatissimum, are known for their mild, non-bitter taste and lack of sweetness.

Flaxseeds have ancient origins, dating back about 8,000 years to ancient Egypt. Currently, they are cultivated in several countries, with Canada being the largest producer since 1994, accounting for about 40% of global production. Canada is also known for its high-quality flaxseeds due to the climate and soil conditions, as well as strict monitoring of the cultivation process.

Kazakhstan is the second-largest flaxseed producer in the world. Other countries such as Russia, China, the United States, and India also cultivate flaxseeds.

Flaxseeds are rich in alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), a type of Omega-3 fatty acid that is beneficial for cardiovascular health. Therefore, besides being used as food, they are also used for oil extraction.

Although relatively new in Vietnam, flaxseeds are considered the "queen" of seeds and are used in various forms due to their incredible benefits.

First and foremost, flaxseeds are high in dietary fiber. Every 7g of flaxseeds contains 3g of fiber. They also contain essential nutrients for the body, including Omega-3 fatty acids, protein, carbohydrates, fats, phosphorus, magnesium, and potassium. Additionally, flaxseeds are rich in lignans, natural antioxidants that support the aging process.
