The Golden Omega Flaxseed is a NON GMO protected variety released by the North Dakota state seed department. It is favored for its wonderfully mild, slightly nutty taste and is also rich in OMEGA fatty acids. Our Golden Omega Flaxseed is gentle mill into a ready to use consumer friendly product. Most milling processes create heat during processing, which shortens shelf life. The gentle nature of the Golden Omega Flaxseed milling also encourages freshness by leaving the oil impregnated in the fiber of the seed thus providing shelf stable freshness for up to 18 months after opening.
