Naturally sweet, grassy-tasting Sprouted Flax Seeds are a good source of lignans and dietary fibre. Lignans are phytonutrients, which help maintain hormone balance. Fibre helps maintain a healthy bowel and cardiovascular systems.
Sprouted Flax Seeds are a rich source of protein and alpha-linolenic acid, the Omega 3 essential fatty acid (EFA). They provide linoleic acid, the Omega 6 EFA and monounsaturated fatty acid (FA) Omega 9. They also contain Choline and the minerals Calcium, Magnesium, Iron, Potassium and Phosphorus, with trace amounts of B vitamins, Vitamins C and E and Beta Carotene.
The process of germination or `sprouting` transforms the seeds into a living superfood. Sprouting increases the seeds` nutrient content and decreases their amount of anti-nutrients and tannins. This allows for increased nutrient absorption.
Omega Excellence Organic Sprouted Flax Seeds are milled to a coarse, golden powder without using heat or friction, which reduces nutrient loss and increases stability against rencidity.
Omega Excellence Organic Sprouted Flax Seeds are packaged in specially-made opaque, recyclable PET tubs, which help protect the ingredients against harmful UV light and oxygen.
