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 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 Flaxseed are Created Equal
Spectrum Flaxseed 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 seeds, 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.

I use this as an egg replacer when I am making vegan cakes. I use one tablespoon mixed into some water to make a loose paste, then I leave it for about 10 minutes. I use one tablespoon per egg I am replacing. There is a very faint taste of flax-seed, if you are really, really looking for it, and of course there is a slightly grainy texture. But other than that, it works just like egg.

The best flaxseed I've tried so far!

Added 2 tablespoons of these flaxseeds to my cereal everyday and not only they have the best flavor but they also helped me to go daily to the toilet, which i highly appreciate for its a rare thing in me!!! After buying these I decided to try another brand but nor the flavor was as good as these ones and nor the fiber kicked as much as these ones. Sooo I'm buying this again! Excited to get them again!!! Absolutely reccomend them!!!

I bought it in Dec 18,2015 and its expired date is May 06, 2016. Less than 5 full months! I barely eat a few spoonful before I had to toss the whole package away as it has already gone rancid.
