Manitoba Milling Company uses a proprietary heat treatment process to ensure consistent safety and quality. Only healthy, uniformly colored seeds are selected for milling. This gives the flaxseed a roasted, nutty, mild flavor. Typical flaxseed flavor characteristics can include a grassy, grainy, or even a sharp taste. Our heat treatment process rounds those flavors out so you only get the premium taste profile of our flaxseed. Our Smooth Whole-Milled Flaxseed is suitable for use in your smoothies, juice, yogurt, granola, or anything else you can imagine. The Pizzey family is responsible for more than a handful of product patents when it comes to flaxseed. Our extensive knowledge and passion for flax are just a couple of the reasons why Manitoba Milling Company provides the best smooth milled flaxseed for your family.

Are your flax seeds organic?
Thanks for your question!
Our flaxseed is pesticide-free and non-GMO. However, herbicides are sometimes used in limited quantities, early in the growing season. Rest assured that we do rigorous testing on our product, and that no residues have ever been found.
Please let us know if you have any further questions. Thanks again for your interest in our farm!
Julie at Manitoba Milling Company
Hi Julie! Thanks for being honest!
Do you use any glyphosate/round up for your herbicides? If not which ones?
Hi there! The farmers we work with use only herbicides that are approved for use on flaxseed by the provincial government. Please also be aware that if herbicides are used on flaxseed, they are used very early on in the growing season, so there is no residue left at harvest. Also, we conduct rigorous testing to ensure that there is never any residue on the seeds that we mill.
Thanks again for your interest in our products, and the way that we make them!
