Ground Organic Flaxseed with Bits of Real Blueberries, Strawberries, Cranberries, Raspberries and Elderberries
The Taste of Goodness
What is good taste? For most people taste is simply a matter of flavor.
At Spectrum Essentials brand we believe the taste of goodness is about making conscious and thoughtful decisions about the foods we eat and the planet we share.
Now with Raspberries and Elderberries!
Ground Flaxseed has never tasted so berry good!
We have taken our best-selling Ground Flaxseed to a whole new level by blending in bits of real fruit—blueberries, strawberries, cranberries, raspberries and elderberries. Often referred to as "Super Fruits", these berries are particularly well known for their antioxidant polyphenol levels and immune supporting qualities, making them as healthful as they are tasty. Spectrum Essential brand Flaxseeds are premium quality seeds that have been carefully selected for their nutritive content. Flaxseed is a highly concentrated source of secoisolariciresinol diglucoside (SDG) lignans. The amount of SDG lignans can vary from 0.7% to 1.9% of seed weight depending on seasonal variation in growing conditions. Only Spectrum Essentials brand uses a proprietary milling process that finely slices the seed rather than crushing it, thereby minimizing 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 sealed airtight to ensure optimum nutritive benefits and product freshness.
The Benefits of Flaxseed
Flaxseed offers the benefits of fiber, Omega-3 fatty acid ALA (Alpha-Linolenic Acid), protein and SDG lignans. Fiber promotes regularity, supports normal functioning of the digestive tract and lipids. ALA is an omega-3 essential fatty acid that helps support normal cardiovascular function and helps to maintain healthy hair, skin and nails. This premium flaxseed is a highly concentrated source of (SDG) Lingnans—which are phytonutrients.
2-3 Tbsp daily. Ground Flaxseed with Mixed Berries is a good accompaniment sprinkled on cereal, yogurt or used in baking.
