Which Grocery Store Aisle Is Flaxseed Oil In?
The vitamin and supplement aisle may be the number one location for flaxseed oil in most grocery stores. You might see both the bottled liquid and flaxseed oil supplements in this area (just be sure to check supplements for non-vegan ingredients).
If there's a natural or organic food section in your grocery store, that's a good place to check next. Look on the shelves and in any coolers in this section.

Great Ways to Use Flaxseed Oil
Put It in Smoothies
Adding flaxseed oil to your smoothies is an excellent way to get more vital omega-3 fatty acids into your diet. It won't add any particular taste, which means you can blend it into absolutely any smoothie recipe you like. Think green smoothies, tropical smoothies, cacao smoothies...
Use It in Salad Dressings
Do you usually drizzle vinaigrette on your salads? Go for a flaxseed oil vinaigrette next time. Or try a creamy vegan dressing made with flaxseed oil instead of olive oil.
Make Vegan Mayo
If you prefer to make your own condiments at home, you'll be happy to know that vegan mayo is a cinch to throw together. You can use any fairly neutral-tasting oil you enjoy, whether it's olive oil, grapeseed oil or flaxseed oil.
