What is Cold Milled Flaxseed?
The original milled flaxseed blend is a versatile product that is popular for maintaining normal blood cholesterol levels and for its high source of fibre and plant based protein, alongside how this product is 100% organic, gluten free and vegan.
When it comes to adding flaxseed to your diet, the best way to do this is by eating milled flaxseed which is where the seed has been blended to a powder like substance.
Including milled flaxseed rather than whole flaxseed in your diet has proven much more beneficial for digestion. The body finds it difficult to break down whole seeds and in many cases the seed simply passes through undigested, meaning your body will miss out on most of the great benefits that come from the seeds.
Linwoods Cold Milled Flaxseed is prepared with great care through our unique cold milling process to unlock the benefits of the seed for easy digestion and ensures the full nutrients remain intact.
What are the benefits of Milled Flaxseed?
Support your Health
Normal Blood Cholesterol Levels
Milled Flaxseed is a great natural source of Omega 3 Alpha-Linolenic Acid (ALA) which is an essential fatty acid which contributes to the maintenance of normal blood cholesterol levels. Our body does not produce Omega 3 (ALA) and therefore must be obtained from our food. One 20g serving of Linwoods Milled Flaxseed provides a convenient way of including 4g of Omega 3 (ALA) into your daily diet.
High in Fibre
One key component of good digestive health is fibre. Most people struggle to get the daily recommended intake of 30g. Flaxseed has a high fibre content, containing 5g of fibre per 20g serving (just two tablespoons). Making it an easy way to greatly increase your fibre intake.
Additionally, as our flaxseed is uniquely cold milled this makes the seed even easier to consume whilst retaining all the nutritional benefits contained within the whole seed.
Support Normal Bones & Teeth
Milled Flaxseed is high in magnesium (20% of your RDA) and high in phosphorus (13% of your RDA) which contribute to the maintenance of normal bones and teeth. Both of these nutrients also contribute to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue.
Source of Plant Based Protein
For those following a vegan or vegetarian diet, milled flaxseed is a fantastic source of plant-based protein, containing 5g per 20g serving. Protein contributes to the growth and maintenance of muscle mass and the maintenance of normal bones.
