Enjoy a Healthier Thanksgiving Feast with MeadowPure Flaxseed and FlaxMatters.com
MeadowPure flaxseed and www.FlaxMatters.com, an online community dedicated to the health benefits of flaxseed, are helping Americans enjoy a healthier Thanksgiving dinner this year with premium flax products and recipes for incorporating flax into traditional holiday foods.
Angusville, Manitoba – October 31, 2008 – A collection of flax recipes featuring MeadowPure whole and milled golden flaxseed, have been released at FlaxMatters.com. The site, which aims to educate visitors about the health benefits of flax (such as ALA Omega-3s), shows that flaxseed can be incorporated into not only everyday meals, but also a rich holiday feast this Thanksgiving through soups, salads, breads, side dishes, and even desserts.
Flax products featured at FlaxMatters.com use the patented MeadowPure cleaning and sorting process, guaranteeing the best quality flaxseed available. MeadowPure flaxseeds feature the longest industry shelf life of up to two years (without refrigeration) and an ideal level of 18 – 24% ALA Omega-3s. The MeadowPure process achieves these goals by electronically separating damaged, dark, or immature flax seeds (which can cause premature spoiling and offer decreased health benefits) from the plump golden seeds featuring the best taste and highest ALA content.
“Flaxseed is one of the best plant-based sources of Omega-3 essential fatty acids,” says Linda Pizzey, President of Pizzey’s Nutritionals, whose MeadowPure flax products are offered on FlaxMatters.com under the Pizzey’s Premium brand. “Thanksgiving meals aren’t often rich in these ‘good fats.’ With consumers looking for healthier eating options, even during the holidays, flaxseed becomes a natural choice to enhance traditional foods because of its versatility and significant health benefits including Omega-3s, lignans, antioxidants, protein, and fiber.”
To help families take advantage of the health benefits of flaxseed this Thanksgiving, FlaxMatters.com offers the following free tips on incorporating MeadowPure whole and milled flaxseed into holiday food staples:
Tip 1: Milled flaxseed offers the most health benefits, so either use Pizzey’s Premium milled golden flaxseed in your Thanksgiving dishes, or grind the whole flaxseed in a coffee grinder before using.
Tip 2: Add milled flaxseed to appetizers. It can be sprinkled over a salad, baked into homemade crackers, added to dips for those crackers or vegetables, and even added to soups.
Tip 3: Pizzey’s Premium golden milled flaxseed is a healthy addition to rolls, buns, and breads served with Thanksgiving dinner. Simply include the flax in a traditional bread recipe to add texture and MeadowPure guaranteed ALA Omega-3 content.
Tip 4: Top vegetable side dishes with milled flax to give them an extra health boost.
Tip 5: Pizzey’s Premium plump, ALA-rich, golden flaxseed is even an ideal addition to common Thanksgiving desserts. Add flax to pie crust recipes, brownies, cookies, fruit bars, or any other baked goods.

About Pizzey’s Nutritionals
Pizzey’s Nutritionals is the largest high quality, food-grade flaxseed supplier in North America. The company was founded in 1991 in the heart of the flaxseed belt, and markets flax-based ingredients for baking, beverages, supplements, and animal nutrition under the MeadowPure brand which ensures the most nutritious and most stable flaxseed available in the market. The MeadowPure process allows the company to offer premium flaxseed products through a cleaning and sorting process involving electronically separating whole, plump flax seeds from damaged or dark seeds, providing a richer source of ALA. This process weeds out damaged seeds that can limit shelf life, leaving MeadowPure milled flaxseeds with a two-year life, with whole flaxseeds lasting indefinitely. The strict quality controls in the MeadowPure process also enable the seeds to be stored at room temperature, rather than having to be refrigerated (the way flax seeds traditionally have to be stored). Pizzey’s Nutritionals was acquired by Glanbia plc, an international leader in dairy foods and nutritional ingredients, in 2007.
