Organic Four Seed Mix is a perfect combination.
Our Organic Four Seed Mix is a lovely combination of nutritious seeds which all contain omega fatty acids. Choosing a mix of seeds is a nice way to save money and time by giving you a range of seeds in one handy bag. This mix is great sprinkled on porridge, added to muesli mixes or baked into granola bars.
- We chose organic natural sesame seeds for this mix as they have a really impressive range of nutrients and are particularly high in calcium which makes them a popular choice.
- Organic pumpkin seeds are high in zinc which can be harder to obtain from a plant based diet.
- Organic flaxseed is an essential choice for any nutrient rich seed mix as it is a source of fibre, B-vitamins, protein and omega-3 fatty acids. Organic flaxseed is actually one of the richest sources of plant based omega 3 fatty acids (also called alpha-linolenic acid – ALA).
- Organic sunflower seeds taste extra special and their high levels of vitamin E which and zinc protect the body from oxidative stress.
A great staple for every store cupboard. If you want a recipe to get started with this nutritious mix then try this delicious chocolate granola recipe.

For a detailed table of the nutrients in each seed please visit the individual listings for each product.
Sesame seeds are high in calcium and B6. Pumpkin seeds are high in zinc. Flaxseeds are a source of alpha linolenic acid. Sunflower seeds are a source of vitamin E.
Manganese: This vital nutrient contributes to the maintenance of normal bones, formation of connective tissue and the protection of cells from oxidative stress.
Vitamin B6: This important nutrient contributes to normal functioning of the immune system, physiological function, immune system function, hormone function and the reduction of tiredness and fatigue.
Zinc: This nutrient contributes to normal function of the immune system, DNA synthesis, carbohydrate metabolism, cognitive function, fertility and reproduction, metabolism of fatty acids, protein synthesis as well as the maintenance of bone, hair, skin and nails. It also protects cells from oxidative stress which is so important in a world where our bodies are exposed to so many toxins daily.
Vitamin E: This antioxidant contributes to the protection of cells from oxidative stress.
Copper: This trace mineral is needed to protect cells from oxidative stress and for normal function of the immune system. It also contributes to normal connective tissue and functioning of the nervous system.
Calcium: It is a common myth that we need to eat dairy to get an adequate calcium intake. Many plant based foods boast high levels of it. Calcium is needed for the normal maintenance of bones and teeth and digestive enzyme function.
Iron: It is vital to get enough iron and many whole foods contain high levels of it. Iron contributes to normal cognitive function, immune system function, reduction of tiredness, energy-yielding metabolism, formation of red blood cells, transportation of oxygen and cell division.
