Rated 1 out of 5 by Plotfather Poor Taste or is Rancid
I bought a bottle and it had a terrible taste. I thought it had gone bad so I returned that one for another one. Still tastes terrible. I don't believe this is just how it tastes as I have used several other brands of Flax Oil which have a rich, smooth taste. I think Swanson has a quality problem and the bottles I received turned rancid in storage. The fact they don't have "Best Used By" dates on any of their products like other vitamin manufacturers do tells me this stuff may sit around a long time. Wouldn't buy this or any of their other liquid products again.

I like Swanson's pricing, but this oil has a bitter after taste. I have ordered Barleans brand before and it tastes better.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Hanna1 Disappointed
Although I am a raving fan over many products I purchase from Swanson, this is not one of those products. I ordered it because it was the least expensive bottle of flax seed oil on your site, and it turned out to be a disappointment. The taste is so poor that I purchased a different bottle from a different source. I used it several mornings to see if I would get used to it, and it never happened. This is one product that I can't recommend.

After using the Flaxseed Oil and the Flaxseed Oil with Lignans, I prefer the ones with Lignans. I think it tastes better. I looked forward to getting the stuff that settles on the bottom. Yummy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rando Favorite Flax Oil
I have been using Swanson Organic Flax Oil for a few years. I have compared its taste with others and it stands up. I get the benefits I look for by using it nearly every day, at least five days per week.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RenegadeXan I love Swanson packaging.
Just at looking at the bottle you can tell how valuable of a product this is. Cold pressed, organic, and great packaging at a low price.
Taste wise, it taste okay, clearly wouldn't taste as good as coconut oil but it is well worth it for the health benefits of omega 3. I consider this a must have.

We use this flaxseed oil in making salad dressings, pour it on rice or millet, and add it
to our dog's food. It is great stuff and has a
wonderful flavor. We love it!

I found this oil here about a year ago and have been using it on my salads ever since then. I am on the Paleo Diet due to some body issues. I need lots of good oils so I use this on my lunch salad almost every day. I love this stuff!

Rated 2 out of 5 by armommi Won't order again
I'm usually pretty good at spotting the differences in pure products and blends of other ingredients, but this one got by me. I made an assumption that Organic meant pure. There is a blend of other ingredients I wasn't expecting in this product that I didn't discover until it was delivered. I can use it and won't return it, but i won't be able to use it in my homemade lotions which are preservative free....at least not until I research the other ingredients.

Rated 5 out of 5 by maryem Best value for great flax oil!
This is my favorite flaxseed oil in the world! It is a high quality, organic oil without lignans. If I want extra lignans I use ground flaxseed meal, which is much more cost effective than buying it in my oil. I have not found a better value and always order several at a time & store them in the fridge. This is great for a healthy salad dressing - just add an equal part (or more) organic lemon juice, along with garlic and herbs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by edtex Great Product
Swansons offers an organic flax oil at a much better price than the competitors. I was surprised, and happy, that it arrived with no leaks in the package. I use lignans in powder form, so I order this oil without them, making for easier pouring.

Rated 5 out of 5 by manz7 Flaxseed Oil (OmegaTru)
Works nice. Mix 2 tablespoon of cottage cheese with 1 tablespoon of Flaxseed Oil (OmegaTru).
Mix thoroughly so that all the Flaxseed oil is completely in - none showing.
To give it a good taste - mix in some honey to taste.
Gives your body a boost.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FitDoc1 MVP - - - MOST VALUABLE PLAYER
For me, Flaxseed Oil is the Most Valuable - - - and Versatile - - - Player on the All-Star team. I take at least one good swig of about 1 ounce every day. I just keep a bottle handy in the door of the refrigerator, and at some point in the day, when I go into the kitchen, I just open the fridge, grab my Flaxseed Oil bottle, and take a big swig. I ususally order about 5 or 6 bottles at a time since I also top-dress my dog's dry food with Flaxseed Oil. You've never met a happier, healthier, handsomer dog than he is, - - - and at 7 1/2 years old, most everyone thinks he is a pup of maybe a year or so. I even top-dress my horses' food with Flaxseed Oil. EVERYONE PLEASE TAKE NOTE OF THIS: Always buy this Organic Flaxseed Oil from Swanson. Other brands, which are no better, are in the $15 to $20 range at the stores. Organic Flaxseed Oil is my MVP Product. Swanson is my MVP source. I recommend both all the time to everyone.
