How Does Flax Beverage Compare to Other Plant-Based Alternatives?

Have you fallen in love with our original or vanilla flax beverage yet? These drinks make it easier than ever to add a boost of flax to your meals and snacks!

Our unique process ensures that only the best flaxseeds make their way into your cartons of flax beverage. We keep this process simple from start to finish so the natural nutrients stay sealed inside.

Why Flax Beverage?

If you’re new to flaxseed or flax beverages, you may wonder how our version stacks up to plant beverages on the market. Plant-based drinks have gained traction as an alternative to cow’s beverage and are especially attractive to those with beverage allergies. As it turns out, Manitoba Milling Co’s flax beverage in particular offers a great allergy-friendly alternative. In fact, our product is free of gluten, nuts, dairy, soy, and any animal based ingredients.

Other plant-based alternatives can yield a watery drink with low nutritional values. For example, 10 ounces of almond beverage can contain 1 gram of fiber, less than two grams of protein, and 2% Daily Value (DV) for Calcium. Alternatively, the same 10 ounce portion of flax beverage contains 3 grams of ALA Omega 3 (more than twice as much as any other flax beverage), 3 grams of fiber, 4 grams of protein, and 25% Daily Value for Calcium plus plenty of other bonuses like 30% DV of Riboflavin and 40% DV of Vitamin B12. The powerful vitamins and minerals in flaxseed, such as omega 3s, have been shown to decrease risk of heart disease (1), support the immune system (1), lower inflammation, and support cell structure.


Our shelf-stable cartons make it easy to use as little or as much flax beverage as you want while preserving peak freshness (the cartons will need to be refrigerated after opening). Our flax beverage makes it even easier to add the power of flax to almost any meal or snack. For instance, you can add flax beverage to quick breads, pancakes, biscuits, or other baked goods. Flax beverage also makes an easy beverage alternative for cereal, coffee creamer, popsicles, smoothies, beverageshakes, or protein shakes.
