alpha-Linolenic acid Seed oils are the richest sources of α-linolenic acid, notably those of chia, perilla, flaxseed (linseed oil), rapeseed (canola), and soybeans. Alpha-Linolenic acid is also obtained from the thylakoid membranes in the leaves of Pisum sativum (pea leaves). ALA is not suitable for baking, as it will polymerize with itself, a feature exploited in paint with transition metal catalysts. Some ALA will also oxidize at baking temperatures.
