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, ALA (alpha-linolenic acid), protein and SDG lignans. Fiber promotes regularity, supports normal functioning of the digestive tract and can have a positive effect on cholesterol. ALA is an omega-3 essential fatty acid that supports heart health, and helps to maintain beautiful hair, skin and nails. SDG lignans are phytonutrients that exhibit antioxidant properties and can have a balancing effect on hormones. Not all Flaxseeds are Created Equal: Spectrum Flaxseeds are premium quality organic seeds that have been carefully selected for their nutritive content. Flaxseed is the most concentrated source of SDG lignans - which can vary from 0.7%-1.9% of seed weight depending on seasonal variations and 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. This light-protective pouch has been flushed with an inert gas and airtight sealed to ensure product freshness. Certified organic by QAI. No preservatives.
