In 2014, based on the strength of scientific data, Health Canada approved a health claim linking the consumption of ground whole flaxseed to the lowering of blood cholesterol — a major risk factor for heart disease.
The three main health-promoting components in ground flaxseed are: omega 3 fatty acid alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), plant lignans and soluble fibre.
Canada is the only country in the world to allow a cholesterol lowering, health-related claim for flaxseed.
More information on the beneficial relationship of flax consumption and the reduction of cholesterol is available at Health Canada’s web site.
