Low Net Carb Organic Flax Flour Nominated for Nutracon’s Nutraward

Saskatoon, SK, Canada

– The Nutracon advisory board has chosen Bak O mega™, a low net carb organic flax flour, as one of the best new ingredients of 2003. Bak O mega™ packs the health benefits of fiber, protein, omega-3 fatty acids, lignans and essential vitamins and minerals into low carbohydrate functional foods and baked goods.


O mega’s™ stability is maintained by a proprietary process without the use of chemical radiation. With less than 1% net carbs * , Bak O mega™ provides a rich source of omega-3s, fiber, protein and lignans. The product’s fine mesh size allows Bak O mega™ to be substituted for 10-15% of flour in recipes, increasing the nutritional value of the food.


O mega™ product information will be posted onsite during Nutracon March 3-5 in Anaheim, CA and at http://www.nutraconference.com/nutraward/Nutraward_BakOmega.pdf . The Nutraward winner will be determined by votes cast by Natural Product Expo West and Nutracon attendees, and will be announced on Saturday, March 6.
