“Flax is currently experiencing huge interest thanks to its numerous health benefits and superfood status,” said Marilyn Stieve, business development manager – flax at Glanbia Nutritionals. “LinPro 140 offers all the nutritional value of flax in a completely natural product that meets manufacturer demand for high quality protein, fiber and omega-3s, as well as maintaining the desired sensory properties.”
