About Flax

Flax is a bluish-purple flowering plant that is abundantly grown in cooler, northern climates. As flax matures, it produces flaxseed, a high-fiber oilseed that is rich in omega-3 fatty acids.

In addition, flaxseed has a high lignin content and also contains mucilage gums. This unique combination of nutrients– omega-3 fatty acids, high-lignin content and mucilage gums— have many health benefits:

  • Relieves skin conditons
  • Lowers cholesterol
  • Eliminates constipation
  • Reduces inflammation and heart disease

“No other commonly eaten nuts or seeds contain such a combination of healthy nutrients.”

What makes our flaxseed the best choice?

Cool climate

North Dakota has the ideal climate for growing flax because flax grows best in cool nights with a dry harvest and adequate rainfall throughout the growing season.

Best practices

Our growers are invited to attend Good Agricultural Practices Training (GAP) annually. This is an in-person training that meets the requirements of the FSMA Produce Safety Rule. We co-sponsor this with the North Dakota Department of Ag in order to ensure food safety best practices are followed on our growers’ farms.

Local growers

The seeds in our products are grown locally. We have long-term good working relationships with our growers, helping and supporting them during all parts of the growing season. We often make visits to the fields to monitor the crops in our products.
