The Sprouted Power of Flax

Several traditional healing systems around the world, including Ayurvedic, Brazilian, Chinese, and Canadian folklore, recognize the health value contained in flax. Its culinary use dates to ancient Greece where the seed’s many health benefits were widely praised. Flaxseed continues to be enjoyed and easily incorporated into modern foods, and its optimal nutrition potential is best realized when it is eaten as a sprouted seed powder.

Every part of the flax plant has a long and continued history of economic importance, beginning in the Stone Ages. Widely cultivated by the Egyptians over 5,000 years ago, flax (also known as linseed, and botanically, Linum usitatissimum) is a slender, annual plant with beautiful blue flowers. Flax was initially cultivated for its fiber, which was woven into threads and famously used by the Egyptians. Artifacts found in Egyptian ruins maintain samples of hand woven flax fabric with up to 200 flax threads per square inch.

Product of Canada

Our flaxseeds are grown in the central farm belt of Canada and are never genetically modified. After harvesting the seeds, we sprout the flax for greater shelf-stability and to eliminate the need for refrigeration. The sprouted seeds are then low temperature dried and milled into flour. Navitas Naturals Flax Powder is made from flaxseeds that are certified organic, kosher, gluten-free, vegan and raw.

Flax, believed to have originated from Egypt, first came to Canada in the 1600’s where it flourished. The slender flax plants bear beautiful blue flowers. When the flax is ready for harvest, fields are swathed and the flax is dried in preparation for threshing - a process to break away the seed coat. Each small, shiny seed reflects the nutritive quality harnessed from fertile soils, abundant rainfall and cool temperatures.
