Organic Golden Flax Seed
Organic golden flax seed is an extremely rich plant source of omega-3s, the essential fatty acids that protect the heart and reduce excess inflammation in the body. They are also an excellent source of dietary fiber, protein, and lignans to give your diet a major nutrient boost. Whole flax seeds have a longer shelf life than ground flax seed, although we recommend grinding them to increase nutrient absorption and gain the most health benefits. This golden flax seed is certified organic by CCOF.
Health Benefits of Organic Golden Flax Seed
Organic golden flax seed is extremely rich in omega-3 fatty acids, specifically alpha-linolenic acid or ALA, which reduces inflammation levels in the body and lowers the risk for chronic conditions such as heart disease and arthritis. Flax seed is also an excellent plant-based source of lignans, a type of phytoestrogens that may have anti-cancer properties. Animal studies suggest that the lignans found in flax seed may have protective effects against breast cancer and prostate cancer.
Golden flax seed is also high in dietary fiber, including both soluble and insoluble forms. Soluble fiber can help control blood sugar levels and reduce LDL "bad" cholesterol, while insoluble fiber supports a healthy digestive system. Per serving, organic golden flax seed adds five hearty grams of protein to your diet. The nutritional content of organic golden flax seed is very similar to that of brown flax seed.
How to Enjoy Organic Golden Flax Seed
The recommended serving of golden flax seed is 1-2 tablespoons per day. Organic golden flax seed has a nutty flavor that blends in well with other foods. Grinding flax seed is the best way to ensure your body maximizes absorption of its protective nutrients. Our flax seeds can be ground in a coffee grinder, spice mill, or food processor. Ground golden flax seed can be sprinkled into smoothies, cereal, pancakes, soups, and any other recipes you like. If you do not wish to grind them, the whole seeds can be added to salads, oatmeal, baked goods, and other foods for a great nutty crunch.
Organic Golden Flax Seed Storage
Store organic golden flax seed in an airtight container that does not permit light to pass through. Store in a cool, dark, dry location away from heat. Flax seed will last several months if properly stored.

“I'm pretty sure I ordered my flax seeds on Thursday, and I received them on Saturday. So fast! The seeds are good, and I love the humorous e-mails telling me when they shipped and when they were delivered. The packaging is cool too. I ordered 5 bags for a great price, so I gave away a bag to a friend. She also commented on the cool packaging. I would order again.”

“OMG, just got my 1st order. I love it!!! It came when you said it would, so I was impressed by that, but when I opened it I almost passed out. Your packaging is so cute - bet no one tells you that, huh? I love the re-closeable packets, so clever. Then, I tasted my 1st treat and had to write. I haven't even tasted everything, but after writing this I'm going to order more stuff. Will you ALL marry me? Before you answer, I'd better admit that I'm 59 years old and not much to look at...lol ”
