Flax seed is naturally gluten-free, and grinding it yourself will assure that it has not been cross contaminated with grains that contain gluten.
This delicious Golden Flax Seed comes from a small family farm in western North Dakota that has been farming organically since 1992 and is certified organic by International Certification Services, Inc.
Golden flax seed has a milder flavor and more pleasant taste in general when compared to brown flax seed. Golden and brown flax seed grown in the same climate possess almost identical nutrient values.
Flax seed provides a high amount of fiber and lignans, and is the highest plant food source of Omega-3 fatty acids. These three flax components work together to prevent many health problems and promote your best possible health. Flax has been shown to help normalize cholesterol levels, aid digestion, relieve constipation, help dry eye syndrome and may prevent some cancers.
A cooler climate and long summertime days achieve a higher Omega 3 oil content in the flax seed as compared with flax seed grown farther south.
This whole flax seed has a delicious nutty flavor and can be stored at room temperature for one year.
For ground flax seed: optimum freshness is obtained by grounding the flax only as needed. A small coffee grinder works great to mill the seed which can then be put in cereals, yogurt, salads, drinks or can be used in baked goods. Use it as a healthy and tasty addition to gluten-free recipes when baking.
Unused ground flax seed can be refrigerated in an airtight container if it will be used in just a matter of days, or it can be stored in the freezer for longer storage.
Store your remaining whole flax seeds in a dark, dry, cool place and they will stay fresh for a year.
