    Flax and flaxseed powder properties

    Cultivated flax is an annual herbaceous plant, which belongs to the Linacea family and produces blue flowers.

    It has adapted throughout history to temperate regions, but it comes from Egypt and Persia. Grown mainly for its fibers, flax also has oilseeds eaten by man since Neolithic times. We find indeed fragments of fiber dating from 36,000 B.C. and its culture is attested from Ancient times. The history of flax travels through time, since the time oft he Pharaohs. It was introduced by the Phoenicians in Europe developed crafts under Charlemagne, 300 000 hectares grown in the 18th century etc. ... Currently 50% of global flax production is grown in Normandy and serves 85% of global uses between textiles (90%), technical opportunities (building materials,composites) and animal and human feed (oil and seeds).

    Invaluable vegetable source of Omega-3, which contributes to the improvement of the cardiovascular system and the prevention of cholesterol, flaxseeds also contain many food fibers[i]: a teaspoon of our powder provides 10% of the recommended daily intake. The combination of soluble and insoluble fibers improves intestinal transit and fight against digestive disorders (poor digestion, constipation, irritable colon syndrome) through its laxative effects. The vegetable proteins of flaxseed promote the immune system and represent a nutritional alternative for vegetarian people.

    On the other hand, it seems that based on some studies flaxseed, thanks to its lignans, participates in lowereing symptoms due to menopause, such as osteoporosis; they are full of phytoetrogens with powerful antioxidant properties. The high antioxidants content of our flax seed powder protects body cells and maintains health with its anti-inflammatory properties.

    This cereal thus has multiple health assets and nutritional benefits in its composition, between vegetable proteins, Omega-3 fatty acids, Omega-3 linolenic acid and fibers[ii].

    These active elements such as polysaccharides, polyunsaturated fatty acid oil and proteins increase the beneficial effects to the body and protect the body particularly by reducing cardiovascular risk as well as blood cholesterol.

    Flax seeds, low in carbohydrates, and rich in lignans contribute to lowering carbohydrates and lipids in the blood, and act against the risks of hyperlipidemia.

    As a super food, flax seed is growing on the European market because the areas of application of its use are varied:

    • Bakery products,
    • Meal substitutes, snacks,
    • Cereals and biscuits,
    • Plant-based beverages,
    • Vitamins and food supplements.

  2. #Species and parts of the plant used#

    Species and parts of the flax used

    Two categories of flax exist: fiber linen and oilseed linen. Many cosmetic products use flax flower. We use an oilseed flax that has more ramifications of the upper rods and thus produces more seeds. Flaxseed is harvested when nearly 90 percent of the seed heads have become coloured, about 100 days after planting. The colour turns from golden yellow to reddish brown. At the end of this maturation, the capsules containing the seeds are harvested. The specificity of flaxseed is its exceptional oil content (35 to 45%) and alpha-linolenic fatty acid. The Natural Origins flaxseed powder provides multiple health benefits.

  3. #Origins & quality#

    Origins and quality of flax

    France is the main region of flax production in the world, from Calvados to North Pas-de-Calais.

    A flax powder combining the following advantages has been developed by Natural Origins:

    • Gluten and GMO free
    • High fiber content (up to 32%) providing nutritional claims such as "source of fiber" or "rich in fiber"
    • High protein content: between 32 and 39%

    Thanks to our heat-treatment process, we guarantee a flax seed powder in accordance with the microbiological standards below:

    • Bacterial plate count ≤ 50 000 CFU/g
    • Yeast and moulds DMLT ≤ 1000 CFU/g
    • Staphylococcus aureus ≤ absent /10g
    • E. Coli ≤ absent /10g
    • Salmonella ≤ absent /25g
