Linwoods Health Foods

by Anne Paddock

Linwoods is an Ireland-based company that manufactures a variety of superfood products including four energy rich blends referred to as Linwoods Health Foods.  Made primarily of organic flaxseed that are cold-ground to protect the essential fatty acids and nutritional goodness and then blended with a variety of ground seeds, berries, or nuts, Linwoods Blends  are high in protein (4-6 grams of protein) and fiber (5-8 grams) and low in sugar (1-2 grams) and sodium (30 mg) per 1/4 cup serving. Each serving has 155-178 calories and 12-15 grams of fat, which is primarily derived from the flaxseed.

Each blend has a unique combination of ground, blended nutritious ingredients with no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives:

Gluten-free , dairy-free, and with no added sugar, the blends are nutritious and delicious whether sprinkled over a prepared food or in a recipe. Each of the four blends are ground so they can easily be added to cooked oatmeal, hot or cold cereals, smoothies, pancakes, waffles, or any baked goods recipes. Packaged in resealable bags (12.7 – 15.0 ounce bags), the blends can easily be scooped out with a spoon and then resealed. Keep refrigerated after opening.1484104_630017703702588_591166808_n-1
