Melrose Organic Golden Flaxmeal is a quality functional food to support good general health. Increasingly consumers are seeking “functional foods” like flax meal to promote health benefits as part of their regular diets. Flaxseed meal is a convenient way of obtaining many of the nutritional benefits of flax seeds, including omega 3 fatty acid, (ALA), dietary fibre and lignans.
About 42% of flax seed is oil, and more than 70% of that oil is polyunsaturated fat, a healthy fat. Flax also contains 57% of the important omega-3 fatty acid, ALA. Flax seed also contains soluble and insoluble fibre. Soluble fibre can support the lowering of blood cholesterol levels, while insoluble fibre moves the stool through the colon more quickly, helping bowel movements.
Flax seed is also one of the richest plant sources of lignans, providing up to 800 times more lignans than most other foods in a vegetarian diet. Lignans are phytoestrogen compounds that have been shown in laboratory studies of animals to help protect against certain kinds of cancer.
