An incredibly nutritious crop, flax’s omega-3 fatty acids, fibre and other nutritional benefits have made flaxseed a popular food ingredient for people of all ages. Kelli’s Original Flax Bar Company in Saskatoon, SK knows just how to capitalize on the nutritional aspects of flax. They have recently launched a healthy and delicious “Flax to Go” premium wellness bar to the marketplace. The bar contains over 50% of the daily amount of ground whole flaxseed shown to help lower cholesterol, is gluten-free and high in fibre. Kelli Skwark, owner, is confident the product’s nutritional and taste component will appeal to all consumers, especially those interested in making healthier food choices for their family.
Flax to Go is currently sold in Saskatoon, SK at Dad's Organic Market, Michael's Independent Grocer (on 51st Street), SaskMade Marketplace, Sangsters Organic Market and several fitness centres. Please check their website for a complete listing or for more information.
The Food Centre is proud to have worked with Flax to Go to bring this wellness bar to market in the areas of Product Development, Processing, Packaging, Labelling Regulations, Health Claims and Ingredient Sourcing.
