During the pressing of flaxseed, the broken husks of the seed are left as flaxseed fibre pellets, we mill these into a flour for you and your family to use. Flax fibre is extremely rich in protein, soluble and insoluble dietary fibre, and lignans (which the body may convert into beneficial Phyto-oestrogens). It is not a high Omega 3 product, as it retains an oil content of only 10%.
Flaxseed fibre can be added to almost any food – eg sprinkled over breakfast cereal, natural yoghurt and fruit, mixed into a fruit smoothie (especially when it is in one of our fantastic smoothie mixes- balancing greens, fruity boost or detoxalin) - or used in fruit loaves, health bars, cakes and bread. It provides a nutritious alternative to bran or psyllium products, it is also gluten free.
Flax fibre is a great way to add not only a nutritional element to your diet but a great nutty flavour too. This recipe is so easy to throw together in just a few minutes and is a healthy (not to mention moreish) addition to the morning tea or lunch box.
