New! Omega-3 and Lignans. Delicious Roasted Taste. 4g Dietary Fiber Per Serving. Rich in Omega-3 (ALA) Fatty Acids. 2.8g Omega-3 per serving. Non-GMO Kosher. Dry Roasted and Ready to Use. Spectrum Essentials Brand Dry Roasted Flaxseeds are premium quality organic golden flaxseeds that have been carefully selected for their nutritive content and meticulously cleaned using a three-part process to remove low-weight and broken seeds commonly found in bulk bins. The seeds are then carefully dry roasted for a delicious  nutty taste without compromising any of the nutritive benefits naturally occurring in the seed! Roasted flaxseeds are easy  to chew and unlike raw whole flaxseeds do not need to ground in order to enjoy their full nutritive benefits because the seed coat is dry and brittle allowing it to be broken easily by your teeth. There's no need to grind!  . The Benefits of Flaxseed. Flaxseed offers the benefits of fiber Omega-3 fatty acid Alpha-Linolenic Acid (ALA) protein and SDG Lignans. Fiber promotes regularity supports normal functioning of the digestive tract and healthy lipids. ALA is an Omega-3 essential fatty acid that helps support normal cardiovascular function and helps to maintain healthy hair skin and nails.  This premium flaxseed is a highly concentrated source of secoisolariciresinol diglucoside (SDG) lignans which are phytonutrients. The amount of SDG lignans can vary from 0.7% to 1.9% of seed weight depending on seasonal variation in growing conditions.
