Flax for Nutrition is roasted. We call it the Roasting Advantage.
Golden Roasted Flaxseed is roasted for many reasons. Seeds are roasted for taste, texture, nutrition, and food safety.
The roasting process ensures that bacteria, mold and pathogens are destroyed without altering the important omega-3 fatty acids and lignans in flaxseed.
The roasting process adds a crunchy crispy texture to the flaxseeds and therefore convenience to the product. Roasted seeds are slightly puffed up which adds to the crunchy texture. The result is that whole roasted flaxseed can be chewed easily without pregrinding seeds.
Roasted flaxseed tastes nutty and crunchy.
Due to the roasting process moisture content in roasted flaxseed is reduced from 8-10 % to below 1 % therefore increasing nutrient density in roasted flaxseed.
