Description

Organic Golden Flax, 36 lbs.

Ground flax seedOur golden flax seed (linum flavum) is certified organic, non-GMO and useful for all kinds of cooking purposes. Golden flax has a mild, pleasantly nutty flavor. Enjoy the flavor and health benefits of flax by adding it to protein smoothies, juices, salads, cereals, casseroles, baked goods, and even desserts... the list is endless!

The outer layer of flaxseed is so hard and fibrous that we can’t actually digest it, even with extensive chewing, so grinding flax seed is essential to absorbing the powerhouse of nutrition it offers. We recommend using a  coffee/seed mill to grind your seed shortly before using it. Ground flax is highly perishable and turns rancid quickly, so grinding small amounts as needed is recommended.

Flax has earned a great reputation, thanks to its plant lignans which promote heart health, maintain bone density, and balance estrogen which can help fend of and fight certain cancers. Flax seed is actually the richest source of plant lignans, containing up to 800 times more lignans than other plant foods!

Flax seed is also rich in omega-3 essential fatty acids which improve brain, eye, heart, bone and joint health. Omega-3 decreases inflammation, fights autoimmune diseases and depression, improves concentration, and so much more. Flaxseed is one of the best sources of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), a plant-based omega-3 fat. Flax is one of the highest dietary sources of omega-3, surpassed only by chia seeds.

  • “Your customer service is the best. All companies could learn from you and your employees. Very courteous and prompt.”

    – Stacey, SD

A common myth surrounding flax is that one color may be superior to the other, but nutritional studies have shown that golden and brown flax are virtually the same in their levels of omega-3 fatty acids, lignans, and fiber. Golden and brown flax both contain about 3 grams of fiber. Brown flax seeds provide slightly more ALA, at 2.5 grams per tablespoon, while golden flax seeds contain 2.1 grams. A tablespoon of either type provides your entire daily recommended ALA intake.

Energy protein balls made with flaxLooking for ways to add fiber to your diet to improve your digestive health and maintain healthy blood sugar and cholesterol levels? Flax offers both soluble and insoluble fiber. Thanks to its soluble fiber content, ground flax seeds create a gummy consistency when mixed with water, so those on an egg-free diet can use flax as an egg replacement. To replace one egg, grind 1 tablespoon of flax seeds and mix with 3 tablespoons of water.

Flax oil, also known as linseed oil, is a good source of omega-3 fatty acids, but the highly desirable lignans and fiber found in the whole seed are removed in the process of making flax oil. Flax oil is a delicate oil and oxidizes easily, so it’s best to use it raw. To keep the oil fresh, store it tightly sealed in the refrigerator.

Just one tablespoon of flaxseed per day will provide a good amount of fiber and omega-3 fatty acids, as well as a boost your intake of B vitamins and minerals such as calcium, iron, and magnesium.

Super-cleaned

All of our flax is cleaned to ensure purity and protect your grinder from any foreign objects. (Flax seed that isn't sufficiently cleaned may contain small stones that will damage or destroy a mill... not to mention that you don't want such things in your food!) All of our golden flax is cleaned to 99.99% purity by weight. To clean, the flax is processed using a screener, gravity table, de-stoner, and magnets. Achieving this level of quality may require further processing yet, through a color sorter. No liquids, soaps or additives of any kind are used in the cleaning process, and the flax isn't heat treated in any way.

Shelf Life

Our organic golden flax seed has a shelf life of 10+ years when unopened and stored in a cool, dark, dry environment.
