Sprouted Chia seeds are a good source of Calcium and Iron, a high source of Fiber and provide 3 grams of vegetarian Omega-3 per 15 gram serving.

Golden Flax seeds, also commonly known as Linseeds, have been used as a staple food for thousands of years. They are a good source of Calcium and Iron, a high source of Fiber and provide 3 grams of vegetarian Omega-3 per one heaping tablespoon 15 gram serving. Flax seeds also contain Lignans, which are unique compounds that have been shown to provide numerous health benefits. Flax seeds are mucilaginous in nature and as such provide a soothing film for irritated mucous membranes. These activated sprouted seeds deliver more nutrients per gram when compared to raw, non-sprouted Chia or 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 Chia and Flax Seed powder not only a nutritional powerhouse, but also more shelf stable than raw Chia and Flax seeds.
Sprouted Chia and Flax seed powder contains Omega 3 fatty acids, bio-available essential vitamins and minerals and an impressive host of antioxidants, giving them an ORAC value of 1,600 per 1 heaping tablespoon 15 gram serving. Simply add Organic Traditions Sprouted Chia and Flax powder to everything you eat to reduce the glycemic load of any recipe.

You can use this as a nutritive supplement, or a stool softening/bulking agent (helps both diarrhea and constipation), or to thicken puddings, smoothies etc. If you don’t want your shake or smoothie to be thicker, then just add 1 tsp. If you’d like to use this to add body and texture, then add 1 tbsp. or more. Flax seed should always be kept in the fridge, and even moreso if it’s ground. So I also keep my unopened packages in the fridge too.
Note: If you have a stricture or suspect you might have one, then consult your health professional before using.
