Organic brown flaxseed
high in omega-3

The nutritional qualities of organic flaxseed are well known. Low in carbohydrate, organic flaxseed has a fibre content of around 25%. It contains around 20% protein.

Above all, it’s the lipid profile of organic brown flaxseed that has earned it such an excellent reputation. Like chia seeds, it is very rich in omega-3 fatty acids, including alpha-linolenic acid. What’s more, its omega-6/omega-3 ratio is excellent, with omega-3 fatty acids accounting for over 40% of the fat contained in the seeds.

Minerals, amino acids and vitamins are also well represented in the nutritional profile of organic flaxseed.

All these nutritional qualities give organic flaxseed undeniable health benefits, particularly for preventing cardiovascular disease and improving transit.

grown in France

Flax has been cultivated since the Neolithic period. The oldest traces of flaxseed have been found at an archaeological site in South-West Asia, dating back around 12,000 years.

This oleaginous herbaceous plant was cultivated both for the fibres in its stem and for its oil-rich seeds. Today’s varieties of flax (Linum usitatissimum) are derived from the first wild strains, domesticated and then selected. Flax is grown in most of the world’s temperate regions. We prefer European-grown flaxseed.

For more than 20 years, FLANQUART has been developing its French flaxseed supply chain by building a network of farmers. This network led by FLANQUART is based on participative exchange between our producers in order to optimise farming practices. This approach includes improving sowing practices and reducing field interventions. This direct, contract-based supply ensures producers in France receive a fair price for their product. Impurities are removed from this flax in our dedicated sorting lines. In addition, our reinforced control plan guarantees optimal product quality.
