It was stated that plant oils rich in alpha linolenic acid (flaxseed oil) and γ-linolenic acid (borago oil) become subject to oxidation processes very easily. One of the methods to increase their oxidative stability is to introduce antioxidants. In this work addition of antioxidants resulted each time in longer induction period depending on kind and dose applied. The mixture of alpha tocopherol, ascorbyl palmitate and lecithin was the most effective both in flaxseed oil and borago oil.
