•    Add to a fruit smoothie
•    Stir into morning porridge
•    Stir into a fruit yoghurt
•    Stir into hot or cold rice pudding
•    Add a teaspoon of the oil to a vinaigrette

It is recommended that Fatty Acid Complex is only added to dishes after they have been cooked and is not used for frying as the stability of the oil could be affected.

AquaSource Fatty Acid Complex contains a diverse range of essential and non-essential fatty acids from evening primrose, garlic, sesame seeds, flaxseed, apricot kernels and many more plant oils which are cold-pressed to maintain their full nutritional integrity.

It has a lovely flavour, suitable for children and adults alike.
