Lignan-rich Flax Products
Which product is best for you?


Lignans can help us protect our health. Different products contain varying amount of lignans. But which one would fit best with your lifestyle? On this page you will find a few examples of products that contain lignans.

Flax Lignan Intake
Currently, there are no set nutrition guidelines for lignan intake, but science and research gives us some indication. Human clinical trials studying lignans for health have used 5, 10 and 25 grams of flaxseed per day, although some studies have safely used larger amounts (30 and 40 grams). One rounded tablespoon of flaxseed is equal to about 10 grams. This amount provides approximately 50 to 150 mg of lignans according to the Flax Council of Canada. Although this is a wide range, commercial ingredients that are standardized for lignan content will allow manufacturers to add a daily intake of 50 mg of lignans to their products more conveniently.



Supplementation

Since commercial methods for extracting lignans from flax are now available, it is possible for food and supplement companies to add lignans to their products. While consumers knew that flax was the richest source of lignans, they weren't sure of the amount of lignans in the flax products they were buying...until now.


Flaxseed
Not all flax ingredients are created equal when it comes to lignan content. According to the Flax Council of Canada, flaxseed contains between 0.7 and 1.9 percent SDG (the main lignan in flaxseed), making it one of the most potent forms of lignans.

Flax Oil
It is important to understand most flaxseed lignans are removed during processing and thus are not found in appreciable quantities in flaxseed oil. The lignans are concentrated in the fibrous hulls of flaxseed, so processing can remove them. This is why flax oil is essentially void of lignans, although flax oil enriched with ground flax (containing lignans) is widely available.
