America’s oldest flour company adds heart-healthy flax to its repertoire
King Arthur Flour has added a new category to its line of premium baking products available in supermarkets nationwide: flax. The two new products – whole flax seed and whole flax meal – are specially milled for maximum freshness and nutritional value, so consumers get the full health benefits flax offers.
“Flax is high in fiber and Omega-3, -6, and -9 fatty acids – known to lower cholesterol and the risk of heart disease,” says King Arthur Flour Marketing Director Tom Payne. “King Arthur Flour is proud to offer this product full of excellent health benefits that is also a high-quality baking product.”
King Arthur Flour’s new flax products are finer in grind, milder in taste, and lighter in color for better performance in a wide variety of uses. They are also non-GMO, certified gluten-free by the Gluten Intolerance Group, and kosher, and meet the same high standards for quality and consistency to which the company holds all of its baking products.
Available this summer in supermarkets nationwide, natural food stores, and at kingarthurflour.com, King Arthur Flour’s whole flax seed and whole flax meal carry a suggested retail price of $3.99.
King Arthur Flour is one of America’s best-selling flours, known by avid bakers for its consistent baking performance and lack of chemical additives. A variety of King Arthur’s unbleached flours, ingredients, and additive- and preservative-free baking mixes is sold in supermarkets nationwide.
