Ingredients: Organic Raw Golden Flax Seeds
-Processed in a peanut-free, dairy-free, and soy-free facility
These raw, organic flax seeds are golden in more ways than one! Flax seeds are the world’s best source of heart-healthy, disease-fighting omega-3 fatty acids. They’re packed with lignans, or micronutrients that act as powerful antioxidants and anti-inflammatories, along with thiamin, manganese, magnesium, and fiber. And they beat even Greek yogurt in protein content-- just a tablespoon of golden flax seeds has two grams!
Crunchy, nutty golden flax seeds are a delicious addition to salads, soups, granola, breads, smoothies and more. But they’re easiest to digest when ground-- try making your own homemade flaxseed meal for use as an egg replacer, protein-rich “bread crumbs,” or a gluten-free baking flour. These seeds’ lovely golden color also makes them easy to sneak into picky kids’ food for a protein, mineral, and antioxidant boost.
FUN FACT! Charlemagne believed so strongly in the nutritional powers of flaxseeds that he passed laws encouraging his subjects to eat more of them.
