GOODRICH, N.D. — Flax USA, Inc. has introduced Flaxmilk in half-gallon containers at Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. The new beverage is available in two flavors: original and vanilla.
The company is promoting the health attributes of the new product, noting that several studies have found evidence that the consumption of flax on a daily basis may help reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke and cancer. An 8-oz serving of Flaxmilk is 50 calories, according to the company.
“In addition to our full line of omega-3 flax products, including flax seed, flax oil and pet food, we were excited to be the first to produce 100% natural Flaxmilk so that consumers could enjoy a lactose-free, dairy free, soy-free, gluten-free milk product derived from flax,” said Stephanie Stober, president and owner of Flax USA.
Flaxmilk has a suggested retail price of $2.98.
