Flax is back
The current interest in flax seed oil for health isn't new. The medicinal properties of flax seed oil were recognized by Hippocrates in ancient Greece.

What was recognized thousands of years ago was forgotten till 1929 when researchers at the University of Minnesota discovered fats are required to sustain life. But it has taken another six decades before health authorities have begun to recognize the consequences of essential fatty acid deficiencies in the population at large.

By the 8th century Charlemagne, the Roman emperor, ruled that every citizen of the Roman empire had to consume flax seed every day to maintain health.

Over a hundred and fifty years ago wild game, fish, eggs and whole grains were sources of Omega-3 fatty acids. Today the milling of grain removes the fatty acids. Other essential nutrients are added back into flour except the fatty acids because they reduce the shelf life of the flour. Laying hens, even the ones advertised as "free range," have no access to Omega-3 fatty acids in their diet. Eggs now provide little Omega-3. Essential Omega-3 fats are missing from the food chain and Americans are paying a steep price for this in poor health.

At Barlean's we have a responsibility, to provide you with the absolute finest, freshest and best tasting organic oil that NATURE has to offer. You can rest assured that we WILL NOT use any form of genetically modified food in ANY of our products. Perhaps our position statement emblazoned on our product logo says it best: "Barlean's, Pure Natural Oils, Old Fashioned Care". Thank you for your kind consideration of our products. We are honored to be your brand of choice. If you have any questions or comments regarding this issue, please do not hesitate to contact us.

On behalf of the Barlean's family, and our extended family of health food stores.

Sincerely,
Friends in Health and Life
