Description

Organic Golden Flaxseed is high in antioxidants called lignans.

Organic Golden Flaxseed is a very popular whole food which has been cultivated for over 6000 years.  You may sometimes hear these little nutrient dense seeds being called linseed – they are exactly the same thing.

One 30g serving of organic golden linseed is:

  • High in protein
  • Fibre
  • B1
  • Magnesium and Manganese.

Flaxseed is actually one of the richest sources of plant based omega 3 fatty acids (also called alpha-linolenic acid – ALA).

You can buy ground flax but this reduces its shelf life and it is hard to preserve the quality of the fats once they are in powder form.  We recommend grinding small batches yourself on a regular basis.  You can store the powder in the fridge in an airtight container for up to a month.

You can simply sprinkle the organic golden linseeds over food but soaking or grinding them releases more of their nutritional power.  Flax can also be brewed into a tea by steeping it in hot water for 10 minutes.

If you are feeling creative organic golden flaxseed can also be made into natural hair or skin serum by soaking it overnight and using its gel-like secretions.  Once it has been soaked it can be kept refrigerated for 3-5 days.

You could also try our organic brown flaxseed.

Family Tip:

  1. Some people prefer to sprinkle flax directly on to cereals, soups or salads.
  2. We add them to seed mixes which we use in a whole host of recipes including baking and stir fries.
  3. We prefer to grind our flax up to use in smoothies and home made cereal bars.
  4. Ground flax can be used in recipes to thicken sauces or in the place of breadcrumbs.
  5. You can make a healthy tea by simply adding hot water and steeping for 10 minutes.
