Blackberry Seed Oil Antioxidant
Posted: February 12, 2013
Botanic Innovations has expanded cold-pressed seed oils to include blackberry, which is recommended for cosmetic and nutraceutical formulations. NatureFRESH Cold-Press Organic Blackberry Seed Oil (INCI: Rubus Fructicosis (Blackberry) Seed Oil) contains a high amount of antioxidants including: vitamin E, tocopherols, tocotrienols and a variety of carotenoids.
In addition, the berry oil contains both lutein and zeaxanthin, carotenoids believed to support eye health. The oil is a good source of polyunsaturated fatty acids including omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, with over 70% polyunsaturated fatty acid. It is low in saturated fat. The fatty acid profile is comprised of: stearic, 2.1%; palmitic, 3.4%; leic acid (omega 9), 15.1%; linoleic acid (omega 6), 62.7%; and linolenic acid (omega 3), 15.2%.
The company processes its oils using its proprietary NatureFRESH-Cold Press technology using low temperatures and no chemicals or synthetic solvents. This certified organic process retains the natural antioxidant activity lost through traditional processing; therefore, the oils and flours have a longer shelf life without the need for artificial preservatives.
