Becoming A Leading Health Product
Out of hundreds of natural health products on the market, some of the best selling ones are colon-cleansing bulk fiber products that make bowel movements easy. High quality milled flaxseed is far superior as a gentle soluble fiber, and because of the nutrition it supplies along with the easy BM's.
Omega 3 fish oil capsules and flax oil are quite popular too. But nearly all of those are rancid. High quality organic flax seed, milled and vacuum packed, is much better and has many tasty uses.
Many take protein supplements of various types. High quality milled flax seed has 22% protein, and it is complete with all the essential amino acids.
And our convenient and versatile organic milled flaxseed is WAY less expensive than any of the products mentioned above.
- "After taking the flaxseed for one week I clearly notice that my elimination has improved. I enjoy the flax in various ways, but especially on salads. I feel good about taking it because it is doing me good."
-- Don D.; Hartville, Ohio
The Best Organic Milled Flaxseed
Our Saskatchewan grown flax seed is the very best there is. No other organic flax product is grown, tested, prepared and cared for like this.
Best Growing Conditions
~ Our flaxseed is certified organically-grown in a large region of farms in the far northern Canada, which have been growing organically for about 30 years.
~ The environment is pure & clean there.
~ The flax Seed grown in this area is the highest quality in the world.
~ The very cold climate and the rich organic soil of these farms, cause this flax seed to have the highest oil content, about 45%, AND the highest Omega 3 level of the oil, about 60%. This is FAR higher than any other flax product on the market.
~ The soil in this region is free of toxic metals like cadmium. This is one of only two North American flax seed growing areas (both in northern Canada) that meet Europe's strict import standards for toxic metals.
All soils in the U.S. are too high in these metals to meet those standards. Flax draws more minerals out of the soil than other plants, which is good if the minerals are nutritional, but a problem when there are toxic metals present.
NorQuin is a family-owned business with a thorough commitment to highest quality. Superior to any other brand, the flax seed selected is tested for quality.
Only certified organic flaxseed that is grown in this special organic region is selected. This is the highest quality flax seed in the world, containing 45% oil, with up to 60% of this oil being the important Essential Fatty Acid, Alpha Linolenic Acid (source of Omega 3). Only the very best of the crop from this unique area is used.
~ With the careful growing, harvesting, cleaning & storage methods the farmers in this area have perfected, their flax seed is known all over the world for being of the highest quality. Broken seeds (which would lead to rancidity problems) are avoided.
~ Every batch of flax seed grown for our product is cleaned to 99.9% purity, and tested for bacteria, mold and other contaminants, and for rancidity.
~ Our flax seeds have 45% oil content, and 60%+ of that is Alpha Linolenic Acid, the needed Essential Fatty Acid source of Omega 3 fats.
~ This flaxseed also has a high content of lignans, protein and minerals.
~ Our flax is on average: 22% protein, 45% oil, 26% fiber (14% soluble, 12% insoluble), and the remaining 7% is made up of carbohydrates, minerals, vitamins, lignans (antioxidants), enzymes and other trace phytonutrients.

NOTE: Percent Daily Values are based on a 2000 calorie diet.Note that although 2 tablespoons of our milled flaxseed contains 80 calories, that 50 of them are from the very desirable, high-quality nutritious oil. The rest is mostly from the protein.The carbohydrate content of flaxseed is virtually all fiber. Flaxseed is the best choice for fiber to help with bowel function. Flaxseed is 26% fiber, and an ideal mix of soluble and insoluble fiber. It is the very best food for the intestine.
~ Our flax seed is specially cold-milled to give full benefits. Milling is a needed process to enhance digestibility and bioavailability.
~ A special flaking process is used that breaks up the seed, yet leaves the oil within the seed. In order to leave as much of the oil as possible within the cell walls (not exposed to oxygen), this flax seed is milled by slicing. It is not ground or crushed.
~ This slicing or flaking process seals the oil & other nutrients into the pieces of the seeds, protecting and preserving them. The oil seals itself into each tiny piece like a self-sealing envelope.
~ Ordinary grinding of flaxseed is too oxidizing. The oils go rancid; as they do when flax oil is extracted. Expelled flaxseed oil is a fractured, dead food, which also lacks the fiber, protein, enzymes and other nutrients, and has far less lignans than the seeds.
~ On the other hand, whole unmilled flaxseeds cannot be broken down well by chewing nor by the digestive juices, so as much as 90% of the value is missed.
~ Our flaxseed is milled directly into a light-proof bag, ONE BAG AT A TIME, and instantly VACUUM-PACKED.
~ The slicing machinery is thoroughly cleaned after each milling with compressed air. No chemical solvents or soaps are used on the blades which might leave a contaminating residue.
~ Because of these unique procedures, the freshness and purity of our organic milled flaxseed is GUARANTEED. Our flax has been tested as far as two years from packing with no detectable deterioration.
Best To Eat
~ This flax seed product is milled for easy digestion, and is ready-to-eat. It's slightly nutty flavor tastes great with any other food. It can be sprinkled on or mixed into any dish, such as cereals, salads, sauces, sandwiches, eggs, potatoes, rice or other grains; in muffins, bread or casseroles; in juices and blender drinks; in applesauce; on vegetables or fruits; in yogurt or cottage cheese; even on ice cream!
Note About Color: Golden vs. Brown Seeds
The color of flax has no bearing on its nutritional value, despite claims by its growers that golden flax is superior. In tests conducted by the Canadian Grain Commission in the summer of 2001, the "Dakota Gold" flax from South Dakota was shown to have 43-44% oil content, while the Canadian brown flax tested had 44%, virtually the same.
However, the level of ALA (Alpha Linolenic Acid -- source of Omega 3 fatty acids) in the Canadian brown seed was 59% of the oil, compared to 51% in the "Dakota Gold". This difference is due to the colder Canadian climate, and perhaps better soil quality, not the color variety.
Both the Canadian brown and "Dakota Gold" flax are superior in oil content to other flax grown in the U.S. which has far less oil. However, unlike any other North American flax, our Saskatchewan grown flax seed is free of toxic cadmium; and it is tested to ensure it is free from contaminants.
Further, golden flax is a hybrid plant. Hybrids are generally weaker than standard varieties of a plant, and usually do not absorb nutrients from the soil as well. Chemical-based farming is commonly used with hybrid plants, which are more susceptible to pests and blights. Golden flax is rarely organically-grown.
Simply The Best
The growing, harvesting and storage methods of the conscientious northern Saskatchewan organic farmers result in the cleanest, least rancid, and most nutritious flax product on the market.
Their careful procedures eliminate broken seeds which can contaminate a batch with rancidity. Our growers are paid six times as much for their organic flax seed as would be paid for normal flax seed at the grain elevator.
This is one of only two North American flax seed products acceptable under Europe's strict import standards for heavy metal (cadmium) toxicity.

Other producers mill their lesser quality flax into a large hopper where it sits for a length of time, then they fill the containers from there.
Flax oil makes up a large segment of the flax product market. The oil is expelled from the seed leaving behind most of the antioxidant lignans, the protein, the fiber, and the vitamins. minerals and enzymes.
Exposure to light and oxygen begins the spoilage process. Rancidity quickly spreads through an oil-rich medium like an infection. Free radicals create more free radicals (peroxides). So flax oil, oil capsules or other brands of pre-ground flax are NOT the best choices for the consumer.
Our flaxseed combines the benefits obtained from consuming flax seed oil, fiber products, mucilage (soluble fiber), lignans and high quality protein all in one complete wholesome product.
About Grinding Flax At Home
The whole flax seeds available for home grinding, even when organically-grown, are inevitably too high in toxic metals and other contaminants, and too low in oil, Omega 3 source fatty acid and other nutrients. There is no other flax approaching anywhere near the quality of ours.
Further, if the blades of a grinder are not cleaned properly each time, rancid oils remain to infect the next batch with free radicals. On the other hand, cleaning with typical dish soap leaves chemical residues on the blades.
Be wary: whole unmilled flaxseed is NOT digestible by humans. It only acts as a laxative. (In fact it moves so efficiently that after it passes through the digestive tract it can be planted and it will grow.)
Flax seed needs to be milled to allow the digestive tract to absorb the nutrients contained in the seed. However, bulk milled flax seed or flax oil may rapidly go rancid by exposing the oil to light and air, resulting in a poor shelf-life.
Properly prepared and protected, milled flax can be eaten raw, blended into drinks, sprinkled on ice cream or cooked and baked into items without losing much of it's nutritional value.
Flax is the best known source for the two most essential fatty acids: Linoleic [LA, (18:2)] and the less common Linolenic [LNA. (18:3)]; which combat heart attacks, breast and colon cancer, arthritis, severe menstrual cramps -- even depression.
Our organic milled flaxseed is for many reasons the best flax product in the world.
No other flax seed is grown, tested, milled and packed like ours.
The freshness and goodness of other flax products is much less than one so carefully grown and prepared. It is free of contaminants and protected from oxidation, yet ready to eat so it can be conveniently used daily, . . . the BEST by far!
"Love the flax product. Vicki loves it even more than me. Wants to know if you keep it in stock. Has several friends who she thinks will also want some."
-- Jim G.; Akron, Ohio
Please consider ordering the best!
One bag (15 oz) of our flaxseed is a month's supply for an adult at about two tablespoonsful per day. Unopened, the flax remains fresh in the vacuum-sealed bag for over a year from packing (even well past the future expiry date on the bag). After opening, it should be resealed and kept in the refrigerator.
Those with sensitivity or inflammation in the digestive tract should start gradually with any flaxseed, perhaps a teaspoonful per day for the first week. Then work up in steps to 2 tablespoonsful.
