At Prairie Flax Products Inc. we produce and distribute high quality food grade milled flaxseed.

Flax has a pleasant, nutty taste along with a unique blend of nutrients. The high amount of dietary fibre, the abundance of Omega-3 fatty acids and the rich amounts of vitamins and mineral make it an excellent addition to most diets.

Flax is one of the few vegetable sources for Omega-3s which are essential fats our bodies require to function properly.
It is also rich in lignans which have antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal properties and can play a role in the prevention of several types of cancers.

See: Flax Benefit Testimonial from St. Boniface Hospital, Winnipeg, MB.

Seriously consider adding flax to your diet. The benefits are numerous, it is a convenient addition to a diet, the results will please you and the cost is reasonable.

Prairie Flax Products are packaged in a variety of ways for convenient use at home, or in a commercial situation. Prairie Flax Products are also available for the manufacture of feeds for pets and livestock.
 

 


PROVINCE PRESENTS FIRST FOOD SAFETY CERTIFICATE
TO PRAIRIE FLAX PRODUCTS INC.

Prairie Flax Products Inc. today received recognition as the first company in Manitoba to successfully complete a food safety audit, conforming with the province’s Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) Advantage.  The certificate of recognition was presented today at the opening of the second annual ‘Food Safety … It Matters!’ conference held at the Victoria Inn in Winnipeg.

“The HACCP program is a food safety system that helps to ensure each step of the food development process in a production plant has a science-based monitoring and control system in place,” said Wowchuk. “We congratulate Prairie Flax Products Inc. for its diligence in pursuing this process to create safer food products.”

HACCP is designed to identify and control potential hazards from the raw materials, during  processing and through to the finished product. The Growing Forward Food Safety program provides companies with funding for consultation, staff training, to cover staff time in developing and documenting the system, record keeping, product testing and certain pre-approved food safety related equipment.

Manitoba’s HACCP standard was launched in 2006 by Manitoba Agriculture, Food and Rural Initiatives (MAFRI). With funding from the federal-provincial Food Safety Initiative, MAFRI worked with Canadian Grain Commission (CGC) to develop a grain-specific food safety program that could be certified by CGC and recognized by MAFRI with a single audit. Grain companies may access funding from Growing Forward program to implement CGC’s HACCP program and be audited by one of CGC’s accredited service providers.

Participation in the Manitoba HACCP Advantage or CGC HACCP is encouraged by MAFRI, CGC and the grain and food processing industries. The program provides the resources to help Manitoba food processors to produce safer food which increases consumer confidence and helps increase and maintain access to local and distant markets.

Further information on HACCP is available from all MAFRI GO offices and on-line at www.gov.mb.ca/agriculture/foodsafety/processor/cfs02s01.html#benefits_of_haccp
