Organic golden flaxseed

Organic golden flaxseed

Like organic brown flaxseed, organic golden flaxseed is an ideal ingredient for numerous baked goods. Incorporated into rustic wholegrain breads, crispbreads or crackers, organic golden flaxseed contributes to the healthy nature of the finished product. And much more besides… 

As a topping, alone or combined with brown flaxseed, organic golden flaxseed gives bread a high-quality visual signature. The colour and graceful shape of the seeds bring a distinctive visual effect in numerous applications. Baked goods, salads, delicatessen products and ready meals or frozen desserts: organic golden flaxseed brings texture and conveys a positive healthy image.

The fruity, tangy and fresh flavour of golden flaxseed is slightly milder than that of brown flaxseed. Toasting golden flaxseed makes it crunchy and easier to digest. Like brown flaxseed, organic golden flaxseed has remarkable functionalities. In contact with water, the integument of organic golden flaxseed becomes coated with mucilage. Milled into a flour or ground into a paste, organic golden flaxseed becomes a clean label ingredient. Golden flaxseed flour can be used as a substitute for texturizing or binding gums or eggs, and to facilitate gluten-free formulations.

Organic golden flaxseed
high in omega-3

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

Above all, it’s the lipid profile of organic golden 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 flaxseed.

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

Flaxseed 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.

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.

Did you know? One tablespoon of ground golden flaxseed contains around 1.6 g of omega-3 fatty acids.
