Source and Processing
Our non-GMO flaxseeds are grown in the central farm belt of Canada. After harvesting, we sprout our flaxseeds for increased nutritional content -- a process that also allows greater shelf-stability and eliminates the need for refrigeration. The sprouted seeds are then low temperature dried and milled into a fine soluble powder. Navitas Naturals Flax Power is made from pure spouted flaxseeds that are non-GMO, raw, kosher, gluten-free, vegan, and 100% organic.
The seed of the common flax plant (also known as linseed, and botanically, Linum usitatissimum).
Ancient Seed of Health
A slender, annual plant with beautiful blue flowers, flax produces a small and shiny brown seed that is slightly larger then a sesame seed. Flax has been known and utilized since the Stone Ages, originating in Mesopotamia. Although initially cultivated for its fiber (which was woven into threads and fabrics and famously used by the Egyptians), the first records of flax’s culinary use stems from ancient Greece, where its health benefits were widely praised. Flaxseed continues to be enjoyed and easily incorporated into foods in the modern world, and is most nutritiously assimilated when ground.
The Sprouted Power of Flax
Flaxseeds are best known for their healthy essential fatty acid profile, and boast the highest source of omega 3’s of any plant-based food. These “EFAs” are known to have a number of advantages, including promoting a healthy cardiovascular and immune system. Additionally, flaxseed is rich in lignans, which are known to balance hormone levels, and the seeds also serve as a fantastic source of soluble fiber. If all this nutrition weren’t enough, Navitas Naturals Flax Power takes this superfood one step farther by sprouting the seeds before dehydrating. This process of germination changes the nutrient composition of the seed, and maximizes the body’s ability to digest and absorb the nutritional benefits. Among these benefits are increased levels of omega fatty acids, a substantially higher enzyme content, and an upsurge of amino acids. Flax Power is a food with a nutritional mission.
Just by sprinkling it into various foods, Navitas Naturals Flax Power is an easy way to fortify any recipe with its naturally occurring nutrients and mild nutty flavor. Blend a spoonful into a smoothie as a omega boost; use as a partial flour substitute in baking to cut carbs and add fiber; or simply sprinkle and enjoy on top of salads, soups, cereal, and just about any dish under the sun.
