Golden Flaxseed / Linseed - Ground Organic 500g
Golden Flaxseed meal, freshly ground and ready to use. Now that's a superb and natural organic plant source of Omega 3 and Omega 6 healthy fatty acids and fibre, without substantially changing the taste of what you're making.
So is the Golden any better than the brown flaxseed? Well yes! Golden has more polyunsaturated fatty acids, less monosaturated fatty acids and larger amounts of the two essential fats that your body can't produce: alpha-linolenic acid (Omega 3) (ALA) and linoleic acid (Omega 6).
Along with these additional benefits, they have a much milder nutty flavour, making it easier to incorporate into your diet. Regularity, gut health, cholesterol, heart health, antioxidant, balance hormones, for beautiful hair, skin and nails - there are loads of reasons to incorporate flaxseed into your diet.
