Welcome to the World of Shelled Flax!
Winner of Canadian
Agri-Food Award of Excellence
health's delight brand of Shelled Flax is like no other flax on the
market! Before now, flax was only available in 2 forms:
whole flaxseed and ground (or milled) flaxseed. Thanks to our
research team, along with Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, we developed
a totally new way to process this nutrition packed seed!
Whole flaxseed normally passes undigested through the human body.
While good for regularity, it does not generally allow your body to
digest the nutritional benefits of the inside of the seed, namely the
flax "kernel". The kernel contains the flax oil which is the source
Grinding flaxseed, which most people do using a coffee grinder, solves
this problem and creates a new one! Besides being messy and
noisy, ground flax goes rancid very quickly! Why? Again, we
go back to the flax oil.
Grinding flaxseed presses the flax oil out of the flax kernel.
When flax oil is released from the kernel it goes bad very quickly and
is very unstable. This is why flax oil must be kept in a dark-coloured bottle in the refrigerator and also why you cannot heat it.
Ground flax must be kept in the refrigerator and tends to go rancid in a
Shelling flax solves these problems! This patented process
allows us to take off the outer shell to isolate the kernel. Now,
with the hard shell removed, your body can absorb the
Omega-3 oil found
inside. However because we have not pressed (or crushed) the seed, the oil
has not been disturbed so it won't go rancid like ground flax and you
can bake with it and retain the Omega-3
goodness. All Natunola®
