Truefood Golden Flax Seed

1 In Stock

Size: 200g, 400g, 1kg (Resealable bag)

Truefood Golden Flax Seeds are naturally gluten free and have a mild nutty taste. They retain water so they can be used as an egg substitute or thickener as well as a whole grain alternative to commercial flours.


USES & BENEFITS

  • Flax seed is one of the richest sources of Lignans, an antioxidant that is both antibacterial and antiviral; it maintains hormone balance and cellular health
  • Flax may also be beneficial for menopausal women and assists with regulating menstruation
  • Flax seed is high in Omega 3 (ALA) which prevents heart disease, lowers blood pressure and cholesterol, improves memory function and promotes healthy skin and hair
  • The high levels of mucilage gum in flax seeds can also increase nutrient intake, by slowing the movement of food from the stomach into the small intestine
  • Flax seeds are a good source of natural fibre which helps to reduce inflammation and lower cholesterol as well as promote digestive health by maintaining healthy gut bacteria
  • Assists with detoxification and sugar cravings
  • With ample levels of magnesium, Flax seed helps to regulate calcium and potassium levels in the body as well as assist with heart health, increased energy, calming nerves and aiding in digestion

WARNINGS

Please note that the body cannot absorb the nutrients from the seeds when whole: they should be ground into a flour, sprouted or taken in an oil form to ensure that nutrients are absorbed by the body.

When baking with flax seed powder, the temperature should not exceed 150c so that the ALA remains stable.
