Flax Seed (Whole, Organic)

Flax seed is touted as a 'super food' because of its impressive nutritional profile. In addition to providing an abundance of vitamin B1, copper, magnesium and phosphorus, less than 3 tablespoons provides more than 15% of the daily recommended amount of fiber and a whopping 130% of omega-3 fatty acids. Use flax seed liberally in casseroles, salads, vegetable dishes, cereals, breads, muffins—even homemade pizza crust.
