About Brush Creek Organic Foods

It all started with three brothers, as different as brothers can be: Richard is the dreamer and a self-proclaimed health-nut, with a desire to help people. Stan is the businessman who can accomplish almost anything he sets his mind to. And Les is the scientist, a veterinarian in practice for over thirty five years.

Richard was the first to fall in love with flaxseed and what it can do, and he fell hard. “This is the HEALTHIEST FOOD on the PLANET!” became his battlecry. But without funds and business expertise, he needed help. Along came his niece Suzanne, who shared his interest in health foods and nutrition, and after 8 months of research she became familiar with the real benefits of flaxseed. Then Suzanne found Jim, the North Dakota farmer who stands behind Brush Creek's flaxseed.

When Les tried flaxseed, to his amazement his hyper sensitive hands, tender from the rigorous washing required by his veterinary work, began to heal. After years of trying prescribed creams to no avail, Les could once again put his hands in his pockets without pain. Another flaxseed advocate was born.

The next step was to convince Stan, which was no easy task! However, being the experienced businessman that he is, Stan examined the facts and they added up: a product that delivers on its promises, organic certification by the FVO, and a farmer whose quality control exceeds required standards. Stan evaluated all this and agreed to oversee what became Brush Creek Organic Foods.

Nothing makes us happier than knowing that Richard's dream is a reality today. The Brush Creek family stands behind every package of our flaxseed, and we are proud to welcome you to Brush Creek –Where health comes first!

Brush Creek Organic Foods - Certified Organic Flaxseed - 16 oz. (435.5 g)

Flaxseeds, Brush Creek Organic Foods Organic Flaxseed all starts in North Dakota, where Brush Creek Organic Foods grows their beautiful golden flaxseed with pride.

At Brush Creek, their packages consistently contain only Golden Flaxseeds, with less than 3 brown or green seeds per thousand. Brush Creek Organic Flaxseed is a superior product, in both taste and in color, very rich in soluble fiber and Omega Fatty Acids 3, 6 and 9 — a perfect complement to your daily diet! Brush Creek knows that you will appreciate its pure, golden color and delicious nutty flavor.

About Flaxseed

Using the Whole Seed for Fiber

The benefits of flaxseed in its whole seed form far surpass those of flax oil for a couple of major reasons. Just taking the flax oil doesn't provide you with the same amount of fiber, lignans and protein found in the rest of the seed. Choose whole or milled (ground) flax if you want all the health benefits and nutrition that flaxseed has to offer. Freshly ground seed includes a much higher fiber content, which is so vital to maintaining good digestive health. Because you grind the seed as needed, you avoid the oxidation of beneficial oils and are assured of freshness. Unlike oil, flaxseed has an unlimited shelf life when properly stored and protected from UV rays.

How Much Flaxseed is Best?

We recommend an average serving of 2-3 tablespoons of whole seeds daily, milled as described below. Because flaxseed fiber expands in your stomach, be sure you drink plenty of water throughout the day to aid digestion.

Milling Your Flaxseed

In order to extract the most benefit from your Brush Creek Golden Flaxseeds, you should mill (grind) them fresh, just before using. Do not eat them whole, as the seeds will not break down properly and will simply pass through your system as whole seeds. Flaxseed grinders are available in specialty food shops and catalogs, but we find that a coffee grinder will also easily process the seeds.  You will know that they are ground to the right consistency by the smooth whirling sound your grinder will make when done.          

Storing Your Flaxseed

Unlike flax oils and premilled seed, our whole flaxseed has an unlimited shelf life. Once the package is opened, store it in a cool, dry place, protected from sunlight and the seeds will keep indefinitely. Once milled, flaxseed will keep 4-7 days in the refrigerator and at least 2 months in the freezer.

Health Benefits of Flaxseed

Omega Fatty Acids 3, 6, and 9-  Our bodies need a balance of Omega Fatty Acids 3, 6 and 9, working together in a balanced ratio, to help fight against a host of health concerns, including cancers, heart disease, high cholesterol, diabetes and more. In today's world, the average diet is actually depleted of "good" fats, due to over processing of foods. It's the omega 3s -- "good" fats -- that researchers are looking at in terms of their possible effects on lowering cholesterol, stabilizing blood sugar, lowering the risk of breast, prostate, and colon cancers, and reducing the inflammation of arthritis, as well as the inflammation that accompanies certain illnesses such as Parkinson's disease and asthma. The results of a Harvard study, published in August 2001 in the Archives of Ophthalmology, showed that people with a high intake of omega-6 (vegetable oils) were more likely to develop macular degeneration, while those with a combination of lower omega-6 intake and high omega-3 intake were less likely to have the disease.

Lignans-  Lignans are phytonutrients found in the fiber portion of flax seed. Flax contains 75 - 800 times more lignans than other plant sources. Lignans are sometimes called phytoestrogens, because they weakly mimic the action of estrogenic hormones in the body. Research continues to show their potential for minimizing many of the negative effects of estrogenic hormones in humans, reducing several menopausal symptoms and reducing the risk of hormone-dependant cancers of the colon, breast and prostrate. Lignans also possess powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties associated with a lower risk of artery-clogging plaques and diabetes.

Protein & Fiber-  Just one ounce (2-3 tablespoons) of ground flaxseed provides over 30% of USDA's Recommended Daily Intake of fiber. Flaxseed is almost a third (28%) fiber! According to the American Dietetic Association, dietary fiber can have a “significant impact” on the prevention of obesity, cardiovascular disease and Type 2 diabetes. Because flaxseed has both soluble and insoluble fiber, it can reduce cardiovascular disease (soluble fiber) through lowered cholesterol levels. It can also aid immensely in proper digestion (insoluble fiber), thereby reducing the risk of colon cancer. Flax also contains a special fiber called mucilage, which is known to help stabilize blood sugars. Flaxseed also contains about 25grams of protein for every 100grams of seed, thus making it an easy and tasty way to ingest the protein and amino acids needed for strong and healthy functioning throughout the day.

Vitamins and Minerals-  The vitamins and minerals found in flax seeds are zinc, iron, vitamin E, carotene, B-group vitamins, magnesium, calcium, sulfur, potassium, phosphorous, manganese, silicon, copper, nickel, molybdenum, chromium, and cobalt. All of these lead to a better and stronger immune system, protecting your body against illness and disease.

Oils- The naturally-occurring oils in flaxseed help to ease the symptoms of both psoriasis and dry eyes. Dry eyes are usually the result of an insufficient outer oil layer in the tear film, so the water in the tears doesn't have anything to keep it from evaporating. Omega-3 fatty acids help the oil glands produce the proper consistency of oil so it will flow from the oil glands and coat the surface of the eye. These same oils can help reduce the itching, swelling and redness associated with certain skin conditions.

Suggested Use
Grind flaxseeds fresh for 20-25 seconds in a coffee or flaxseed grinder. Once ground, use immediately or store in freezer bag in the freezer for up to 2-5 , months. Can be stored in refrigerator for 3-4 days.

    I recommend this product!
    I first purchased this product at my local healthfood store. I really liked the smooth mellow flavor of this flax seed. I usually grind the whole seed in my coffee grinder and store in a glass jar in the refridgerator for 3-5 days. I can then easily add the ground flax seed to oatmeal, cereal, yogurt, baked goods, pancakes, etc... This particular golden flaxseed doesn't have a strong taste so when I add it to baked goods my kids can't tell. I am glad Lucky vitamins is carrying this brand now at a great price.
