Golden flax seed powder is light brown in colour and has a fairly neutral smell. It is naturally gluten free and is full of essential fibre which provides bulk to your digestive system.
Flaxseed powder comprises approximately 28% total dietary fibre by weight, including both soluble and insoluble fibre. Soluble fibre can help lower blood cholesterol levels and help moderate blood sugar, while insoluble fibre moves the stool through the colon more quickly, helping bowel movements and improving laxation.
Flaxseed is one of the richest plant sources of lignans, providing up to 800 times more lignans than most other foods. Lignans are phytoestrogens – compounds that have been shown in studies of animals and in early human clinical trials to help protect against certain kinds of cancer, particularly cancers of the breast and colon, by blocking tumour formation.
Flaxseed contains about 20% protein and has an amino acid profile similar to that of soybean protein which is considered to be one of the most nutritious of the plant proteins.
