Flax Meal

What is flax meal?

Flax meal is made from ground flaxseed, also known as Linseed. Grinding the hard outer seed coat makes the nutrients easier to digest. 

Why add flax meal to pet food?

Flax meal is becoming increasingly popular in pet foods, particularly as it is not a grain and so is suitable for use in grain free diets. It is rich in the essential omega 3 fatty acid alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), as well as being high in soluble and insoluble fibre, protein and lignans (which are powerful antioxidants). 

Where does your flax seed fibre come from?

We use a high quality flax meal which is grown in Mid-Canterbury and processed in Ashburton.
