What is Organic Flaxseed?
Organic flaxseed (also known as linseed) is a nutrient-dense superfood that has been cultivated for over 6000 years. It is one of the richest sources of plant-based omega-3 fatty acids (alpha-linolenic acid or ALA), as well as protein, fiber, and antioxidants. Flaxseed can help maintain normal blood cholesterol levels, support digestive health, and provide various other benefits.
Our organic flaxseed is grown without the use of synthetic pesticides, herbicides, or fertilizers, and is certified by the Soil Association. It is cold-milled to preserve its nutrients and aid easy absorption after consumption. You can add it to your favorite dishes, such as cereals, salads, soups, smoothies, or baked goods, to boost their nutritional value and flavor.
