The Taste of Goodness
What is good taste? For most people taste is simply a matter of flavor. We believe that the taste of goodness is about making conscious and thoughtful decisions about the foods we eat, the planet we share and the people we work with every day.
The Benefits of Flaxseed
Flaxseed offers the benefits of fiber, Omega-3 fatty acid Alpha-Linolenic Acid ALA, protein and SDG lignans. Fiber promotes regularity, supports normal functioning of the digestive tract and lipids within normal levels. ALA is an Omega-3 essential fatty acid that helps support normal cardiovascular function and helps to maintain healthy hair, skin and nails. This premium flaxseed is a highly concentrated source of secoisolariciresinol diglucoside (SDG) lignans - which are phytonutrients.
Not All Flaxseed are Created Equal
Spectrum Essentials® Brand Flaxseeds are premium quality organic seeds that have been carefully selected for their nutritive content. Flaxseed is a highly concentrated source of SDG lignans— the amount of SDG lignans can vary from 0.7% to 1.9% of seed weight depending on seasonal variation in growing conditions. These select seeds are meticulously cleaned using a three-part process to remove low weight, broken, and dirty seeds commonly found in bulk bins. Only Spectrum Essentials® brand uses a proprietary milling process that finely slices the seed, rather than crushing it, thereby preventing the loss of valuable nutrients from oxidation. The sliced seed is immediately packaged in this light protective pouch and airtight sealed to ensure optimum nutritive benefits and product freshness.
2-3 Tbsp. daily. Can be eaten alone, sprinkled on cereal, yogurt and other foods, or used in baking. For more omega-3 benefits, we recommend Spectrum Essentials® Brand Organic Flax Oil. Consult your healthcare practitioner for your individual needs.
Organic cold milled ground flaxseed.
Refrigerate After Opening: To store, press air out of pouch and seal tightly. Best if used within 3-4 months after opening. Can be frozen to extend shelf life.
