flax-seeds

Raw Brown Whole Flax Seeds. Buy it here! “Our brown flax seeds are completely raw and unprocessed. They were grown in Italy and are traceable back to the farm that raised them. The farm is certified organic and a sample of the seeds were lab tested for the presence of glyphosate and none was found.”

Unique Nutritional Qualities of Flax Seed

Omega 3 Fatty AcidsFlax seeds are a very good source of Omega 3 fatty acid in the form of alpha-linolenic acid, or ALA.  The ALA present in flax can also remain intact after baking, so fresh ground flax can be added to breads and pastries and still retain its Omega 3 advantage after coming out of the oven. Flax seed has a high ratio of Linolenic (Omega-3) to Linoleic (omega-6) fatty acids. While many other plant seeds contain a higher ratio of omega-6 fats, flaxseed is the one of the few seeds that contains a much higher ratio of the essential omega-3 fats.

organic-raw-honey-lg

A Raw Product from the Wilderness. Buy it here!

Healthy Traditions Organic Raw Honey comes from the frontier areas of Canada, and is only harvested during a 6-week period in the summer. Healthy Traditions is the exclusive source of this premium organic honey in the U.S. Most commercial honeys available on the market today come from bee farms, where the bees are controlled within a certain area and get their pollen from usually only one kind of flower. Many of the plants that produce these flowers (clover, orange blossom, etc.) are grown with pesticides and fertilizers as well. In addition, almost all honeys on the market are pasteurized in high heat and filtered, removing many of the beneficial nutrients and enzymes.

Healthy Traditions Organic Raw Honey has not been subjected to the heat of processing, only warmed enough to flow (same temperatures the honey would see inside the hive). We select only premium honey that is pure, smooth and creamy, with the consistency of soft margarine at harvest. It contains live yeast and enzymes, because it has not been processed. It also contains pollen because it has not been filtered—merely screened.

Fine textured crystals are characteristic of totally pure, unheated, unprocessed, raw honey. Properly crystallized honey has a fine, smooth texture. Crystallized honey preserves natural goodness and doesn’t drip. The more rapidly honey crystallizes the finer the texture will be. It will also turn harder over time as it crystallizes. Truly raw honeys do not deteriorate with age, but like fine wines, continue to age and develop into more complex tastes.
