The Wisdom of the Ages
Flax has been prized since ancient times. Its Latin name, Linum usitatissimum, means "most useful." Hippocrates, the Father of Medicine, prescribed flax to patients with intestinal issues. King Charlemagne was so convinced of its benefits that he passed laws requiring his subjects to consume flaxseeds.
The Science of Today
Today, the nutritional data backs up the wisdom of the ancients. There is general agreement among experts of all sorts that folks should consume more omega-3 fatty acids to promote good health. Two tablespoons of Bob's Red Mill Golden Flaxseed Meal offers 2430 mg of omega-3s. What's more, each serving provides 3 grams each of fiber and of protein. Golden flaxseeds and their meal have no significant nutritional differences from their brown counterparts, making them a just as valuable addition to your diet as the more common brown flax. It's no wonder so many nutritionists, not to mention Bob himself, urge you to add flaxseed to your daily diet.
Straight from the Source
Sure, there are omega-3s and fiber in pill and powder form. You can also inhale oxygen from a tank, but wouldn't you rather breathe fresh air from the great outdoors? We just believe that eating the whole seed, as nature intended, serves your body and soul best.
Milling flaxseeds is like opening a treasure chest. Flaxseeds contain a wealth of nutrients, but as whole seeds most of these nutritional treasures are locked away. Milling the seeds into meal gives your body access to the amazing nourishment stored within. In order to maintain the integrity of the wholesome nutrients in the flaxseed oil, the seeds must be milled with great care. That is why we don't make compromises or cut corners. Our proprietary flax milling machinery keeps the meal cool, which preserves the freshness of those precious oils. It's not the fastest way, but it's the right way, and it is absolutely worth the time and effort. The result is flaxseed meal with optimal nutrition and a fresh, nutty flavor you won't find anywhere else. Just a couple spoonfuls each day in your cereal or smoothie will be a wonderful way to maintain your wellness. That's why I say these bags are "packed with potential." I add a tablespoon to my oatmeal every morning, and I truly believe there is no better way to start the day.
To your good health,
Organic whole golden flaxseed.
Manufactured in a facility that uses tree nuts and soy.
Tested and confirmed Gluten Free in our quality control laboratory.

I add this to my smoothies and coffee(yes you heard me right!) and it thickens them and adds that muddy texture that I actually really like. The nutty flavour is there and actually very pleasant too. This is now a stable in my kitchen! Good quality and good price! Good job iHerb and Bob's Red Mill <3
