Flax Packs (Carrington Farms) Product Review

Note: Another product I got to try was Carrington Farms Organic Milled Flaxpacks. These are convenient on-the-go flaxseed packs that you can take with you to work or school.

From their website: Flax seeds are a great source of fiber, lignans, protein, essential fatty acids, omega 3 & omega 6, vitamins, and minerals. Researchers also believe lignans to have antioxidant properties. Flax seed has up to 8 times more lignans than other vegetables and grains! The vitamins and minerals found in flax seeds are zinc, iron, vitamin E, carotene, B-group vitamins, magnesium, calcium, sulfur, potassium, phosphorous, manganese, silicon, copper, nickel, molybdenum, chromium, and cobalt. For every 12 grams of flax seeds, you get about 3-4 grams of protein.

I took these to work with me to make my chicken and flax lettuce wraps!
