Introducing Flaxmilk: The First Non-Dairy Milk Product made from Flax Oil

Nutrition Breakthrough Lets Health Conscious Consumers Drink In the Benefits of Omega 3s

Goodrich, North Dakota – A truly innovative product in the field of nutrition, brand new Flaxmilk is the first and only all-natural, dairy-free milk product made from cold-pressed flax oil. Several scientific studies have found evidence that ingesting flax on a daily basis may help reduce the risk of heart disease, cancer, stroke and diabetes. Flaxmilk is rich in omega-3 essential fatty acids known for their heart-healthy benefits. A daily glass of Flaxmilk is a simple and delicious way to help prevent heart disease, stroke and cancer. The perfect companion to whole grain cereal or as a dairy-free substitute in recipes, one eight ounce serving of Flaxmilk is only 50 calories and provides as much calcium as cow’s milk with zero cholesterol and zero trans fat. In addition, Flaxmilk is completely plant-based and enriched with Vitamins A, D, and B12.

A study published in the 2006 issue of the American Journal of Cardiology stated that sources of plant-derived omega-3 fatty acids including flaxseed and flaxseed oil had remarkable cardioprotective effects and consumption of these food sources should be increased in the diet to decrease cardiovascular disease risk significantly.

What’s more, according to Eco Chef and cookbook author Bryan Au, “Flaxmilk is not only as good tasting as it is good for you, but is great for making smoothies, desserts, puddings, ice creams, and sauces for those who wish to eat a gluten-free, lactose free, raw or vegan diet.”

Flaxmilk is made by Flax USA, Inc., a company operated by the Stober family, who are fifth generation farmers in North Dakota. Flax USA was founded in 2001 to market Golden Omega Flax Seed, a non GMO flax seed that is 100% natural and grown on the Stobers’ 1600 acre farm. To insure the highest quality in making Flaxmilk, only the best flax seed is used.

“I started Flax USA to make it easier and tastier for consumers to add flax to their daily diets and reap the multitude of health benefits,” says Stephanie Stober, president and owner of Flax USA. “In addition to the full line of omega 3 flax products that we market, including flax seed, flax oil and pet food, we were excited to be the first to produce 100% natural Flaxmilk so that all consumers, adults and children, could enjoy a lactose-free, dairy free, soy-free, gluten-free milk product derived from flax.”

Flaxmilk comes in original and vanilla flavors and is sold in ½ gallon containers at Wal-Mart stores across the country for $2.98. For more information on Flaxmilk, visit
