Linwoods Milled Organic Flaxseed 425g
Our nutritionally dense flaxseed supports a balanced diet and active lifestyle.
Tastes great with porridge, cereal and yoghurt, or try sprinkling on fruit and salad.
Our Flaxseed is cold milled to protect all the nutritional goodness and Omega oils contained in the seed. Flaxseed, also known as Linseed, is one of nature's richest sources of the essential fatty acid Omega 3 (ALA).
Our body does not naturally produce Omega 3, therefore we must get this valuable fatty acid from our food, and Linwoods Flaxseed provides an easy, convenient and tasty source with 5.8g of Omega 3 per 30g. Our healthy super foods are cold milled to aid quick and easy absorption into the body, so you can feel the immediate nutritional benefit in your diet, naturally.
