You Can See Our Quality!
Flaxseed was eaten like nuts by the early Greeks and Romans. You may eat the untreated seeds whole, ground into meal, or sprouted. Used in small amounts, they add a crunchy quality when making muffins, waffles, pancakes, granola, or cooked cereals. When ground, Flaxseed can be added to breads, muffins, hot cooked cereals and smoothies. Two tablespoons of ground Flaxseed brings you the amazing nutritional benefits of omega-3, lignans and dietary fiber. One serving of flaxseed contains 1800 mg of omega-3 fatty acids.
Bob's Red Mill products labeled Gluten Free are batch tested in our quality control laboratory. We use an ELISA Gluten Assay test to determine if a product is gluten free.
Millers of Natural Foods!
What's inside each flaxseed and found in flaxseed meal could be better health, spelled F-L-A-X:
F is for Fiber. It's amazing how much fiber a little flaxseed contains. Just two tablespoons of flaxseed meal delivers 4 grams of fiber, as much fiber as 1 1/2 cups of cooked oatmeal! Studies suggest that when flaxseed meal is added to the diet, harmful LDL cholesterol drops, while good HDL cholesterol stays put. Regularity improves, also.
L is for Lignans. Here's where the flaxseed story gets major points. Flaxseed contains high levels of natural antioxidants called lignans. Many plant foods have some lignans, but flaxseed has at least 7 times more than any other. To get the lignans that are in just two tablespoons of flaxseed meal, you'd need toe at about 30 cups of fresh broccoli.
A is for Alpha-linolenic Acid. Modern diets — even healthy ones — are routinely deficient in omega-3s. Flaxseed is a mega-source for the plant version of omega-3 called alpha-linolenic acid. The oil in flaxseed is about 50% alpha-linolenic acid. Canola and walnut oils, the next highest sources, have about 10-%. But most foods have far less. One serving of flaxseed meal contains 1800 milligrams of omega-3.
X is for Excellent choice. Should you consider adding flaxseed meal to your diet? "Absolutely," say many doctors and nutritionists.
Diets low in saturated fat and cholesterol, and as low as possible trans fat, may reduce the risk of heart disease.
