Milk Thistle Oil
· Food supplement ·
The milk thistle — also known as Our Lady’s thistle or the Holy thistle — was grown back in medieval times in monastery gardens for healing purposes. Today, it is increasingly coming into the focus of orthodox medicine and homeopathy. This oil, pressed from the seeds of the milk thistle, is rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids and is an exceptionally valuable oil in terms of health.
The oil is also rich in Vitamin E, which helps protect cells against oxidative stress. Some 2.5 tbsp. (= 25 ml) of Milk Thistle Oil alone already meets 90 % of our daily requirements of the vitamin. Our BIO PLANÈTE Milk Thistle Oil has a pleasantly mild and slightly nutty taste, adding an interesting touch to salads, dressings and dips and refining not just hot vegetables but also yogurt and smoothies. However it is used, it should always be served cold to protect the precious ingredients.

Where does the vitamin E come from? Was it added to the oils artificially?
Vitamin E occurs naturally in cold-pressed cooking oils because the plants make this vitamin and, due to its chemical properties, it passes to the cooking oil during cold pressing. Incidentally, the following are especially high in vitamin E: natural Sunflower oil, natural Safflower oil and natural or roasted Almond oil.
