Flax seeds have been used as a staple food for thousands of years by many cultures. Sprouted Flax seeds are a source of Calcium and Iron, a high source of Fiber and provide 3 grams of Omega-3 per 1 heaping tablespoon 15 gram serving. These activated sprouted seeds deliver more nutrients per gram when compared to raw, non-sprouted flax seeds. The sprouting process improves digestibility and allows for a greater absorption of nutrients. Enzyme inhibitors are eliminated and anti-nutritive compounds such as phytic acid are reduced. The sprouting process not only dramatically increases vitamins and minerals in the seed, it also doubles the antioxidant score (ORAC) making Sprouted Flax not only a nutritional powerhouse, but also more shelf stable than raw Flax seeds.
