Benefits of Our Oil

The value of this oilseed lies within its unique fatty acid composition. Fatty Acids are the nutritional components of oils and fats. There are two types of fatty acids that are labelled “essential” because they must be acquired through the diet. Neither humans or animals can synthesize them on their own. These two essential fatty acids (EFAs) are linoleic acid (LA which is synthesized into Omega-6) and alpha-linolenic acid (ALA which is synthesized into Omega-3).

Frequently Asked Questions

 

 

Question

Answer

I recently purchased a 4L jug of Canpressco Camelina Oil, but my horse will not eat it.  Do you have any suggestions on how to ease them into it as part of their feeding program?

Thank you for your inquiry.  On occasion, we do have horses that will not try new things. If this happens, we suggest using a syringe to squirt the Camelina Oil into their mouth or mix it with apple sauce or molasses. If that doesn't work, you can return the product you purchased.

I just purchased a 4L jug of Canpressco. I was wondering about the dosage of Vitamin E for your oil? I can easily find the dosage for Omega 3,6, and 9 but nothing for Vitamin E.

The information provided in our Certificate of Analysis for Canpressco Camelina Oil concludes that there are five different Tocopherols.  These are all forms of Vitamin E.  The alpha tocopherols are labeled as Vitamin E.  That is because these forms of tocopherols are the most effective form of Vitamin E, and this value determines if a Vitamin E claim can be made on human food.  Alpha tocopherols are also the most effective form of Vitamin E for animals as well.  There is roughly 44.3mg of mixed tocopherols (Vitamin E) within 100ml of oil (so for 30 ml it would be about 13.30 mg).  The natural Vitamin E in Camelina Oil keeps the oil fresh for a longer period.  However, if you want to supplement your animal because of a Vitamin E deficiency, we suggest you work with your veterinarian and/or nutritionist to determine the best level of supplementation.

Is it ok to give to a pregnant mare?

Yes, Canpressco Camelina Oil is perfectly safe to give to pregnant mares! We have a lot of breeders that use Canpressco Camelina Oil and both mare and foal’s benefit!

Can I give this supplement to my Friesian yearling?

Yes, you can feed Canpressco Camelina Oil to your yearling! Camelina oil helps with bone and joint development.

I am looking to start my mare on your product but I’m unsure about the weight gain side of things. I know some oils increase weight, but she doesn’t need to gain any more

Every oil is a fat source and will help with weight gain.  However, because the recommended dose is 60 mls per day, it is generally not a concern.  We suggest starting with 30 mls per day (1 pump) and then incorporating 60 mls (2 pumps).  If weight gain becomes a concern, we would recommend returning to utilizing 30 mls per day (1 pump).

What is the best way to feed the oil? Is on oats, ok?

Yes, you can top dress it on oats as well as other feed.  Other customers have mixed it with loose mineral as well.

What is the shelf life of the oil? I’m considering buy the 13 L pail, but I don’t want it to go bad before I can use it up. How many mL is a daily dosage?

Canpressco Camelina Oil has a shelf life of two years after press date. We carry 3 sizes, 500ml, 4L and 20L pails.  Recommended dosage is 60 mls per day for horses.  Freshness is extremely important when feeding oil.  We have expiry dates and lot numbers on all our products and press frequently so you always have fresh oil.

Why is your oil for animal use only, and why does it caution: not for use in horses intended for food"

Canpressco Camelina Oil is approved by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency and Health Canada.  Camelina Oil is registered under the Low-Risk Veterinary Health Product category.  There are mandatory statements that must be included on every product that is registered within this category including "For Animal Use Only" as well as a cautionary statement "Not for Use in Horses Intended for Food".

I am currently feeding fish oil but have heard camelina oil is a way to support Canadian farmers and would be a good alternative. Are you able to speak to the differences between camelina and fish oil and what I could expect to see?

The difference between fish oil and camelina oil is that camelina is plant based. Horses are herbivores.  You can find the same content of Omega 3 in Camelina Oil as you would find in fresh grass. Another great thing about Camelina Oil is that it contains natural Vitamin E which makes it shelf stable for up to two years passed pressed date.
