Whole/Ground Linseed Seed

Bio Oils is New Zealand's largest producer of Flax Seed products. Wholesale ingredient supplier to the pharmaceutical, cosmetic and animal health industries.

At Bio Oils our focus is on quality, and locally grown Linseed Seed, to create some of the world’s best Certified Organic and Conventional Linseed Seeds.


Whole Linseed Seeds are tough little capsules. They are too tough to digest properly if eaten whole, but once they have been ground or pressed their wonderful nutritional properties are released in the form of either Flax Seed Oil or Flax Seed Fibre, or simply ground Whole Linseed Seeds.

Crunchy and delicious with a pleasant taste, Linseed Seeds are packed full of nutrients, Omega 3 fatty acids, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals that are essential for optimum health:


  • Rich in monounsaturated fatty acids and are an excellent source of the Omega 3 essential fatty acid alpha-linolenic acid (ALA)

  • Provide a quality source of protein

  • The richest source of lignans, a class of phytoestrogens considered to have antioxidant and cancer preventing properties

  • An excellent source of vitamin E, a powerful lipid soluble antioxidant required for maintaining the integrity of cell membrane of mucus membranes and skin, by protecting it from harmful free radicals

  • Packed with many important B-complex groups of vitamins such as riboflavin, niacin, thiamin, pantothenic acid, vitamin B6, and folates.

  • A rich source of minerals including manganese, potassium, calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc and selenium.
