The Healthy Pantry -Flax

Milled flax seed

Do you eat Whole Flax Seed? If you do, you may not be getting all of the heart-healthy and nutrition benefits of this food’s Omega-3 Oils. Milled Flax Seed breaks it down for your body to absorb. Unlike whole flax seed (which cannot be digested), Milled Flax Seed allows your body to fully absorb the benefits of the Omega-3 Oils. One serving (2 tablespoons) of Milled Flax Seed provides you with 2600 mg of Omega-3 Oils! Flax seed is also rich in dietary fiber, plentiful in vitamins and minerals, and has a long and interesting history as a food dating back thousands of years. The term “flax food” includes the whole flax seed, milled, ground or unmilled; flax oil; and flax meal, which is what is left after the oil is removed. The best flax food is milled flax seed.
