Bob’s Red Mill Raw Whole Golden Flaxseed is a great, nutritious addition to just about any food. Flaxseeds contain lignans (antioxidants) as well as Omega-3 fatty acids and soluble fiber. Sprinkle flaxseeds over hot or cold cereal, salads, popcorn, eggs, or any other snack or meal. Incorporate into homemade granola bars or trail mix. Like all of our gluten free – labeled products, this product is processed in a dedicated gluten free facility and R5-ELISA tested to confirm its gluten free status.
Organic flax seed is an excellent source of fiber. Flax is also the most widely available botanical source of omega-3 fatty acids. Most followers of the Western diet don’t consume nearly enough omega-3s, and eating brown flax is an easy and tasty way to get these essential fats in your diet, as well as plant-based protein—especially vital for vegetarians and vegans.
While whole flaxseeds are full of nutrients, they are very hard for the body to break down: ground flaxseed is much more readily absorbed. Fortunately, making ground flax is easy: just use your home mill, a spice grinder or a high-speed blender. You can even sprout our brown flaxseeds!
Add flaxseed to bread, muffins, bars, biscuits, crackers, granola, cereal, cookies and other dishes—check the recipes tab for inspiration! To Your Good Health
