Simply The Best Organic Milled Flaxseed

~ The growing, harvesting, testing and storage methods of the conscientious organic farmers who raise flax seed for our product result in the cleanest and most nutritious flax seed product on the market, with no rancidity.

Their careful procedures eliminate broken seeds which can contaminate a batch with rancidity. Our growers are paid six times as much for their organic flax seed as would be paid for normal flax seed at the grain elevator.

~ This is one of the rare flax seed products, only found in two areas of Canada, that is acceptable under Europe's strict import standards for the toxic heavy metal cadmium, due to the insignificant content of it in this flax.

~ No other flax seed is as high in oil content and ALA (Omega 3 source) content. 

~ Northern Edge flax seed is milled by a special 1-bag-at-a-time slicing and packing method that seals the oil in the pieces and minimizes its exposure to air, heat, light and rancidity. 

~ Our flax seed is cold-milled in the dark directly into the light-proof container and instantly vacuum-sealed.

~ Other producers mill their lesser quality flax into a large hopper where it sits for a length of time, then they fill the containers from there. 

~ Flax oil makes up a large segment of the flax product market. The oil is expelled from the seed leaving behind most of the antioxidant lignans, the protein, the fiber, and the vitamins, minerals and enzymes. So with flax oil the consumer is missing much of the nutrition and benefits of the whole flax seed.

~ Exposure to light and oxygen begins the spoilage process. Rancidity quickly spreads through an oil-rich medium like an infection. Free radicals create more free radicals (peroxides). So flax oil, oil capsules or other brands of pre-ground flax are NOT the best choices for the consumer.

~ Northern Edge organic milled flaxseed combines the benefits obtained from consuming flax seed oil, antioxidants (lignans), fiber (including mucilage soluble fiber), and high quality protein, plus vitamins, minerals and enzymes, all in one complete wholesome food product.


Why Milled Flaxseed?

Whole un-milled flaxseed is NOT digestible by humans. It only acts as a good fiber for the intestine. (In fact it moves so efficiently that after it passes through the digestive tract it can be planted and it will grow.) 

Flax seed needs to be milled to allow the digestive tract to absorb the nutrients contained in the seed. However, bulk milled flax seeds or flax oil may rapidly go rancid by exposing the oil to light and air, resulting in a poor shelf-life.

Properly prepared and protected, milled flax can be eaten raw, blended into drinks, sprinkled on ice cream or cooked and baked into items without losing much of its nutritional value.


About Grinding Flax At Home

The whole flax seeds available for home grinding, even when organically-grown, are inevitably too high in toxic metals and other contaminants, and too low in oil, Omega 3 source fatty acid and other nutrients. There is no other flax that even approaches the quality of ours.

Further, if the blades of a grinder are not cleaned properly each time, rancid oils remain to infect the next batch with free radicals. On the other hand, cleaning with typical dish soap leaves traces of chemicals as well as oil residues on the blades.

Why bother with tedious grinding and clean-up when you can eat our far better flax seed that is ready to eat.  Your time and your health are each worth more than the few dollars difference in cost.
