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 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. This light-protective pouch has been flushed with an inert gas and airtight sealed to ensure product freshness.

Suggested Use

1 1/2-3 Tbsp. daily. Should be ground prior to consuming for optimal health benefits. Ground seed 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.

Other Ingredients

iHerb Customer Reviews

One of the best sources of alpha-linolenic fatty acid, lignans, fiber, essential vitamins and minerals.

Posted by Leione on Apr 21, 2014 | Verified Purchase

Flax seeds are truly a superfood. They're one of the best sources of omega-3 fatty acids, particularly alpha-linolenic fatty acid famous for fighting inflammation, relieving pain, boosting metabolism and facilitating fat burning, and the best source of lignans known for protecting against colon, breast and prostate cancer by blocking enzymes that are involved in hormone metabolism and interfering with the growth and spread of tumor cells. But that's not all: flax seeds are also an excellent source of fiber, protein, vitamins and minerals: one ounce of flax seeds provides a whopping 8 grams of fiber (31% of the recommended daily intake), 6 grams of protein, 35% of the RDI of manganese, 27% of magnesium, 18% phosphorus, 17% of copper, 10% of selenium, 9% of iron, 8% of zinc, 7% of calcium, 7% of pota ssium, 31% of thiamin, 7% of vitamin B6, 6% of folic acid, 4% of niacin, 3% of riboflavin and pantothenic acid, 2% of vitamin K, not to mention that they're naturally gluten and cholesterol free and suitable for people suffering from gluten intolerance and celiac disease. It's no surprise that flax seeds are packed with health benefits and can help people suffering from diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol, obesity, heart disease, gastritis, acid reflux, nausea, indigestion, menstrual cramps, asthma, multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, osteoporosis, arthritis, rheumatism, autoimmune disorders, and even cancer: they stabilize blood sugar, regulate insulin levels and prevent blood spikes keeping you full longer, aid digestion, prevent heartburn and acid reflux, increase appetite, soothe the stomach lining, reduce inflammation, normalize blood pressure, lower triglycerides and LDL or "bad" cholesterol levels while increasing HDL or "good" cholesterol, improve blood circulation, protect against strokes, atherosclerosis and peripheral arterial disease, help maintain healthy skin, hair and nails, and even reduce the risk of certain types of cancer. These organic flax seeds are one of my favorite products. They normalize my cholesterol and blood pressure, help my acid reflux and gastritis and keep me full for a long time stabilizing my blood sugar. To get maximum health benefits, I grind them and add them to oatmeal, cereal, soups, salads, yogurt, smoothies and many different recipes. Glad I ordered them.

Taste weird

Posted by iHerb Customer on Nov 09, 2013 | Verified Purchase

I do not like the taste. I like sealable packaging. I will not repurchase it.

Thanks for your feedback!

Very Good Product!

I grind these up in a small grinder and put in my protein shakes. Great fiber and has made a real difference with my bowel problems. Also great source of antioxidants & omega 3 fatty acids. I've read that buying whole seed and grinding up and adding to foods gives the best nutrition from flaxseed.

Thanks for your feedback!
