Flaxseed provides a highly economical source of Omeg-3 oils (22%), dietary fiber, and lignan phytoestrogens for nutritional products, supplements and beverages. Omega-3 from flaxseed that is incorporated into a food product qualifies for nutrient content claims and structure function claims. As a nutrient content claim, only 260 mg of ALA per serving must be present in order to qualify for a "High", "Rich", or "Excellent" Source of ALA Omega-3 claim. Appropriate structure function claims include "Supports Cardiovascular Health", "Supports a healthy Immune System", and "Supports General Health". Food manufacturers should consult FDA guidelines to ensure that their products are consistent with the requirements.
Pizzey's patented MeadowPure Quality process captures 100% of flaxseed's nutritional value and keeps flaxseed's natural protective mechanisms intact, thereby guaranteeing the stability of these ingredients under normal storage conditions.
