All Flax Is Not Equal
    • Must be grown above the 53rd parallel. The long cool days increase the amount of Omega 3 in the seed.
    • Flax grown in the south has a peanut taste indicating a higher Omega 6 content.
    • Our flax taste is a cross between walnut and grass indicating a higher Omega 3 content.
    • Commercial Flax is milled into a hopper and then shipped in paper flour bags, not refrigerated and then packaged, in turn reducing the shelf life. Our flax is milled into the package and vacuum-sealed within 30 seconds. Our package has a shelf life of 18 months.
    • Our flax is cleaned for Human Consumption; it's 99.99% clean.
      Before we buy our flax we test the bins:
      • Oil content must be at least 45%.
      • Checked for bacterial plate count for Salmonella and Ecoli.
      • Must have the vitamins and minerals we say it has.
      • Must taste good.

    • We only mill the best of the best!
    • Our flax has lower Cadmium levels than southern flax. There are only 2 growing areas in North America that low Cadmium Flax can be produced.
    • Poplar Valley Organic Growers Association's land has only been farmed for the last 50 years. The soil has been glaciated which dropped the minerals in the soil. The farmers rotate their crops and are certified organic OPAM.
    • Other flax companies pour sesame and sunflower seeds in their product, so the fatty acids are balanced which does not help you overcome your Omega 6 overabundance. They actually do this to cover up the rancidity of their product.

Milled Flaxseed

  Milled flaxseed contains fiber, mucilage, lignin, protein, omega 3 fatty acids, etc. Fiber in the bowel acts as a cancer fighter, mucilage for stabilization of blood suger and respiratory system and lignin - the tumor fighter.

  • Need 1.5 grams of omega 3 minimum if you wish to balance the over abundance of omega 6 in other food.
  • 2 tablespoons of flaxseed a day give 3.9 grams of omega 3

  Important - flaxseed swells up to 8x's its size, it is very important that you drink 8 to 10oz of water this will help the process along with by flushing your body of unwanted toxins and wastes.
