Flax is a blue-flowered plant grown in the prairies of Western Canada and Northern United States. Its seeds, which can be consumed whole, provide dietary fiber that can help with regularity. But grinding the seeds into a fine powder is how its nutritional goodness is really released! Providing plant-based omega-3s and a good source of fiber, ground flaxseed can give your smoothies, shakes, cereals, and baked goods a nutrient-packed punch.
The super light powder of ground flaxseed makes it perfect for blending into your favorite foods and beverages.
