Linwoods sent me a full size package of their Ground Flaxseed Sunflower Pumpkin and Sesame Seeds and Goji Berries. Lush red goji (goh-gee) berries are considered a national treasure in China because of their various health properties. Here Linwoods has paired them up with with flaxseed, pumpkin, sunflower and sesame seeds fabulous natural sources of fiber plus healthy omega-3 fats, vitamins and minerals. This magical blend, that's low in cholesterol and high in health, can be used in your baking or sprinkled over salad or in your smoothies – it is a very versatile product. Sprinkle liberally to boost your intake of fiber and healthy omega-3. Just 4 spoonfuls gives you 6g of omega-3, which can calm down minor inflammation, balance your immune system and contribute to your healthy heart and brain. Goji berries are packed with antioxidants too that protect and strengthen the immune system so its a great package all the way around.

When I learned about the nutritional powers of flax seed, that was it for me. I started adding it to all our foods where it would benefit and add flavor or weight to the product. I am in love with food, with health, with life, and want to share this with everyone. I do not love any type of genetic modification, hydrogenated fats, refined sugars and other garbage. And you won't find these in Linwood's products.

Linwoods’s philosophy has always been about delivering fresh, great tasting, quality products and this belief is core to everything we do. In our bakery, we combine the best quality and blend of ingredients to bake superior products that meet both our customers and consumers quality standards. I'd say they lived up to their brand promise.
There are six varieties of their Ground Flax Seed Mixes that are all interesting in their own right and I could see being used for a good many dishes.
You can check out Linwoods website for a lot more information, including extended product information and some nifty recipes.
