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 everyday.
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. Only Spectrum 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 then flushed with an inert gas and airtight sealed to ensure optimum health 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 Organic Flax Oil. Consult your healthcare practitioner for your individual needs.
