The seed of the flax plant is small and full of oil, especially omega-3 fats. Flax is also a rich source of both soluble and insoluble fiber, which helps regulate cholesterol, blood sugar, and helps keep you digestive system healthy. This seed is also brimming with plant compounds called lignans, which have heart-protective benefits and have been shown to help protect against certain types of cancer like breast and colon. Omega Power Bread is made from about 85-percent flax.
Omega Power Bread has a lesser amount of rye compared to flax, but provides numerous health benefits. Rye is a cereal grain closely related to wheat and barley. The grain contains gluten that is less elastic than wheat, which gives Omega Power Bread its delicious mouth feel. Whole grain rye contains a boatload of important nutrients like vitamin E, several B-vitamins (like folate), calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, iron, and zinc. Like in flax, the insoluble fiber found in rye also provides a healthy dose of lignans.

Good Source of Fiber
Each slice of Omega Power Bread contains 16-percent of the recommended daily amount of fiber. Much of the fiber comes from the flaxseeds and rye, which provides a combination of soluble and insoluble fiber. Benefits of soluble fiber include helping to regulate blood sugar, decreasing blood cholesterol, and reduce the risk of diabetes and heart disease. Insoluble fiber helps decrease the risk of colon cancer and helps keep you regular. This type of fiber also helps keep you feeling full, and has also been linked with weight control and management.
Brimming with Omega III Fats
Each slide of Omega Power Bread contains 1 gram of omega-3 fat, which is an essential fat your body cannot make. Omega-3 fats are important for growth and brain function, and are heart healthy because they help lower total cholesterol and triglycerides. A diet full of omega-3 fats has been linked with a reduced risk in high blood pressure, Alzheimer’s and rheumatoid arthritis, and an improved immune system.
Good Source of Protein
There is close to twice as much protein then carbohydrates in our bread. This is ideal for anyone who is looking to eat more plant-based protein as recommended in the 2015 dietary guidelines for Americans. Protein also takes longer to digest, which keeps you more satisfied for a longer period of time. Plus, it is perfect for diabetics who are looking to better control their blood sugar.
With the 2015 dietary guidelines recommending that less than 10-percent of your daily calories should come from added sugar, Omega Power Bread is a perfect solution to help cut added sugar.
Very Low in Sodium
Each slide of Omega Power Bread contains 20 milligrams of sodium, which is 1-percent of your recommended daily maximum. Most other commercially prepared whole grain breads contain 6 to 7 times the amount of sodium per slice.
