Consumers increasingly choose flax as a nutrition-packed ingredient, rich in essential omega-3 fatty acid, Vitamin E, dietary fiber and protein, but low in carbohydrates. Flax, an ancient grain, is a particularly good source of antioxidants and minerals. Food companies find flax a wise choice for both taste and performance in baked goods and ingredient applications. It can extend shelf life, and improve both volume and texture in finished products. With a nutty flavor and unique shape, flax is an attractive and tasty topping choice as well.
Brown or golden flax – Both types come in whole seed and meal; non-GMO
