100% Natural Walnut Oil, Cold Pressed
Swanson's Walnut Oil
I don't use vegetable oils at all so walnut oil is a staple in my kitchen for baking with. This is a high quality oil but gave it only 4 stars because it comes in a plastic bottle instead of glass.

What a NUT oil this is!!
Wow...this oil is light and has almost not taste. That's a good thing compared to my normal Flax-seed-oil.
This is s-o-o light and easy to take it actually is fun to get my omega 3's now. I may Never go back to my nightly "Flax oil" tribulation.

As a first time consumer of Walnut Oil, I have nothing to compare this to; on that note, this oil is light, delicate, and a very welcome addition to my salads. Love this oil! Also a great value here at Swanson.

Delicious way to eat healthy
I bought this not quite knowing how I'd take it. I soon had a big salad in front of me and started with the Swanson Walnut Oil, and then added a no-oil raspberry seed dressing. The salad was delicious, and I imaging very healthy.

You may not believe this but I use walnut oil sparingly on popcorn to take the place of melted butter. The taste is amazing with just a touch of seasalt. So keep the walnut oil in your refrigerator, try this and enjoy.

works for me
My doctor recommended walnuts to me for a condition many older men have. They worked pretty well for me but I learned to hate them very quickly.
Than I tried this oil. It worked better than the walnuts themselves.
I can't tell you how pleased I am and I bought 8 bottles on sale!

Natural walnut oil
I love this oil! It is clean easy to use without guilt. I live using it with salads, with bread, and drizzled on vegtables.

This was my first experience with walnut oil and I'm pleased with the taste and texture. I eat a green salad every day and don't use bottled salad dressing, but instead, just a tablespoon of oil and Spike lemon pepper seasoning. I wanted the EFA that walnut oil offers over olive oil. The taste is mild and I will continue using walnut over olive oil.

Good on salads
This walnut oil make wonderful salad dressing. It goes well with salads that have fruit and feta, gorganzola, or blue cheese. Just add vinegar, honey, a little water or orange juice, and a tiny sprinkle of zantham gum so it will cling to the salad contents. It stays nice and liquid in the frige.

Good product but the cap need to change
I love this product the only thing is about the cap, not too friendly, if they can replace with a easy cap(now, every time I use it will leave extra oil out of the bottle, such a waste...)

I read previous reviews before ordering this and to be honest i expected a nutty flavor of the oil which I have not discovered so far.The oil is very clear it tastes just oily. I hated that i ordered it in January ( I got the buy one get one free deal) and the product expires in march.There is no way one can use it so fast( I don't use it for cooking), i take a spoonful every day.

Great to cook with; I add it to everything: Salads, smoothies, cookies (baking), anything.

Great Salad Dressing Oil
I use this to make homemade salad dressing as it is getting harder and harder to find quality olive oil at a good price. This does the trick and has a slightly nutty taste which is great in salads.

I was very disappoinbted to find that this oil comes in a plastic bottle with no statement that it is BPA free. I'm pitching all the plastic stuff from my kitchen and removing this from my Favorites list.

Mild, pleasant taste.
Only complaint: bottle leaked.
March 15, 2012
Drizzle this over salad greens, or mix in a walnut pesto instead of olive oil and you WILL have a tasty treat! IN-joy

Oil, Yes. Walnut Oil, Maybe
This is indeed oil. It has no discernible flavor or odor--certainly no "rich nutty taste." It may as well be canola oil. Suspicious.

Omega content of Walnut Oil
This product is advertised in the catalog as "full of omega-3 and omega-9". If you read the label, you can determine that it is 57% omega-6. Swanson, as most sellers of unsaturated fatty acids, refrains from declaring the omega-6 in their products because there is so much bad publicity on omega-6.
Actually, walnut oil is one of the best sources of omega-6 fatty acid in terms of the percentage, and there is nothing at all wrong with omega-6 when it is eaten from a source such as this cold-pressed oil. All the bad publicity on omega-6 is because of the ruined oil you get from cheap commercial seed oils (corn, soy, safflower, sunflower, etc.) and from foods that have been fried or cooked with those oils, where, if the oil wasn't spoiled to begin with, the heat from the baking, frying, etc. will have ruined the omega-6 in the oils.
The thing to remember is to reduce your intake of junk/fried/processed foods, and get healthy portions of both the essential fatty acids, omega-3 and omega-6. This Walnut Oil supplement give you BOTH. You can use it, as I do, to make mayonnaise and salad dressing that will be healthy, and far superior to anything you can buy in even a health food store. Swanson has a recipe for mayonnaise. Try it! My recipe is slightly different, using only Walnut Oil instead of the Walnut/Olive combination in the Swanson recipe. I love it.

I can't take flax seed oil, but this is a delicious alternative.
