    Now Foods Certified Organic Golden Flax Seeds are ideal for baking. Flax seeds are one of the oldest foods known to man. Remnants of flax seeds were found in an excavation in southeastern Turkey dating back to early biblical years. Today, flax seeds are gaining consumer interest because of their high nutrient content. Flax oil derived from Golden Flax Seeds is one of the highest known vegetarian sources of soluble fiber, magnesium, zinc and linolenic acid (an Omega-3 fatty acid). The Omega-3 content of the oil is typically 52%. Flax seeds also provide protein, mucilage, phytosterols and plant lignans. Now Foods Certified Organic Golden Flax Seeds are microbiologically tested for your safety. Now Foods Certified Organic Golden Flax Seeds are grown on rich soil in North Dakota and are best suited for baking, especially bread baking.

    Whether brown or golden in color, Now Foods Certified Organic Flax Seeds are from the same genus and species called Linum usitatissimum. According to the Flax Council of Canada, these northern grown plants are grown in different soil conditions and produce seeds with small differences in nutritional value. The Golden variety may have slightly higher fat as well as higher fiber content. Many customers have also remarked on the milder flavor of the Golden variety, which is usually preferred for bread making and other baked goods.

    Of the 38-42% total naturally occurring fat in Flax seed, an average of 18% is Omega 3 in the form of Alpha Linolenic acid. Contrary to what is found in most seeds, Alpha Linolenic acid is the predominant unsaturated fatty acid found in Flax seed. Linoleic acid, which belongs to the Omega 6 family, is the predominant unsaturated fatty acid in most other seeds like safflower, sunflower, corn and sesame.

    Flax seed contains between 24-38% total fibers. The Golden variety contains up to 8 grams of fiber per two tablespoon serving. These seeds contain a healthy blend of both crude and soluble fiber. Flax seed are not only a rich source of Omega 3 fatty acids and fiber, but also contain up to 23% protein. These marvelous seeds have also been researched to be the richest source of Plant Lignans known.

    Lignans, otherwise known as Secoisolariciresinol diglycoside (SDG), are pharmacologically active plant compounds that have been studied to provide immune support. Flax contains up to 100 times the quantity of lignans as the next richest source, which is wheat bran. In addition to the tests performed to assure freshness and the nutritional values described in the information above, every batch of NOW’s Certified Organic Flax seeds is tested for microbiological safety.

    About NOW Foods

    NOW's Mission
    The NOW mission is - To provide value in products and services that empower people to lead healthier lives. NOW Foods is an award-winning and highly respected manufacturer of vitamins, minerals, dietary supplements and natural foods.

    In 1948, with the natural food and supplement industry in its infancy, entrepreneur Paul Richard paid $900 for the purchase of Fearn Soya Foods-a Chicago based manufacturer of grain and legume-based products. This began a six-decade legacy of providing health-seeking consumers with high-quality, affordable nutrition products.

    History of NOW
    In 1968, NOW Foods was founded under the belief that good health was not a luxury available only to the wealthy. For the past forty years, NOW has made it their life's work to offer health food and nutritional supplements of the highest quality, at prices that are fair and affordable to all those who seek them. Today, NOW Foods is one of the top-selling brands in health foods stores, an award-winning manufacturer, a respected advocate of the natural product industry, and a leader in the fields of nutritional science and methods development. And while NOW has grown considerably over the past four decades, one thing has never changed - NOW's commitment to providing products and services that empower people to lead healthier lives.
