Prairie Flax Seeds Products produces and distributes high
quality food grade milled flaxseeds.

Flaxseed (Linum usitatissimum) contains high quality protein, fat, and dietary fibre to support a healthy lifestyle. On average, Canadian flaxseed contains 41% fat, 20% protein, and 28% total dietary fibre. This modest seed is a wealth of good nutrition due to its omega-3 fatty acid ALA, (20% of dry weight); the plant lignan secoisolariciresinol diglucoside (SDG, 1% of dry weight); and soluble fibre (6% of dry weight) (ncbi.nlm,nih.gov).  Flax also has a pleasant, nutty taste and along with its unique blend of nutrients, flaxseed is an excellent addition to a healthy diet.

Prairie Flax Products are packaged in a variety of ways for convenient use at home, or in a commercial situation. Prairie Flax Products are also available for the manufacture of feeds for pets and livestock.
