THE TASTE OF GOODNESS®
What is good taste? For most people taste is simply a matter of flavor. At Spectrum® brand they believe the taste of goodness is about making conscious and thoughtful decisions about the foods we eat and the planet we share.
THE BENEFITS OF FLAXSEED
Flaxseed offers the benefits of fiber, Omega-3 fatty acid Alpha-Linolenic Acid (ALA), protein and SDG lignans. Fiber promotes regularity, supports normal functioning of the digestive tract and healthy hair, skin and nails. This premium flaxseed is a highly concentrated source of secoisolariciresinol diglucoside (SDG) lignans - which are phytonutrients.
NOT ALL FLAXSEEDS ARE CREATED EQUAL
Spectrum Essentials® Brand Flaxseeds are premium quality organic seeds that have been carefully selected for their nutritive content. Flaxseed is a highly concentrated source of SDG lignans- the amount of SDG lignans can vary from 0.7% to 1/9% of seed weight depending on seasonal variation in growing conditions. These select seeds are meticulously cleaned using a three-part process that finely slices the seed, rather than crushing it, thereby preventing the loss of valuable nutrients from oxidation. The sliced seed is immediately packaged in this light-protective pouch and then flushed with an inert gas and airtight sealed to ensure optimum nutritive benefits and product freshness.
