REVIEW OF BARLEAN'S FORTI-FLAX
Back To Top

Introduction:

BARLEAN'S FORTI-FLAX

The Claim:

From Cold-Milled Select Flaxseed!

Barlean's Forti-Flax ground flaxseed provides a cornucopia of naturally occurring nutrients including valuable Omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, amino acids and trace minerals, to bring you vibrant health and energy.
Barlean's Forti-Flax does appear to provide an array of different ingredients that promote good health. However, Barlean's Forti-Flax is relatively low in all categories. That being said, it does have a fairly good amount of essential fatty acids and monounsaturated fatty acids per serving. Also, each serving is only 90 calories.
Forti-Flax supplies all the benefits of fiber plus a comprehensive source of organic-source nutrition:

  • Nutritional Powerhouse: Extremely rich source of Omega-3, dietary fiber, protein, mucilage and phenolic compounds, vitamins, major and trace minerals and amino acids
  • Highest Quality: 100% certified organic, kosher certified, free of pesticides and herbicides; made with select flaxseeds from North America
  • Advanced Process: Proprietary cold-milling process delicately liberates vitamins, minerals, amino acids, lignans and phytonutrients without damaging delicate omega-3 fatty acids
  • Supports Healthy Body Function: Soluble fiber - great alternative to unsavory fiber supplements
  • Convenient: Easy addition to a healthful diet, no special preparation needed, just sprinkle on your favorite foods or stir into juice or water
  • Great Taste: Adds a crunchy nutty flavor to baked goods, cereals and sprinkled on banana slices


Again, it does provide all these but it does so in relatively small amounts. However, being that the serving size is only 90 calories, you could always consume more than 1 serving.

Attributes of Forti-Flax:
Fiber: Contains both soluble and insoluble dietary fiber Fatty Acids: Contains essential* Omega-3 and 6 as well as Omega-9 in an excellent balance to support health
Vitamins: Contains eight essential* vitamins
Minerals: Contains four major minerals and four trace minerals
Amino Acids: Contains all 10 essential* amino acids (complete protein) as well as eight non-essential amino acids Phytonutrients: Contains Lignans, Phenolic Acids, Flavonoids and Phytic Acid

  • Essential Nutrients must be ingested directly in the diet and cannot be created by the human body


There is no doubt it makes a nice addition to different foods. Simply by sprinkling it on with no other preparation necessary.

I felt that Barlean's Forti-Flax was fairly honest in its claim. Therefore, I award Barlean's Forti-Flax an 8/10 for the claim.

Taste:

I sprinkled Barlean's Forti-Flax on an oatmeal/granola/yogurt mix and it was hardly noticeable. Also, I added it to a shake, where it didn't appear to have an effect on the overall taste of the mixture. Therefore, for taste, I found that Barlean's Forti-Flax (when mixed with other recipes) was relatively undetectable. As a result, I award Barlean's Forti-Flax a 7/10 for taste.

Solubility/Texture:

I mixed in Barlean's Forti-Flax into a blender which mixed it in, and to a degree, diced them up into smaller pieces. However, after pouring, Barlean's Forti-Flax sunk down to the bottom of the shake, which I saw as poor solubility. At the end of the shake (the bottom where the flax sunk), this made for a very gritty texture. If you are planning on adding Barlean's Forti-Flax to something, I would recommend adding it to food, rather than a shake. Therefore, for solubility/texture, I award Barlean's Forti-Flax a 1/10.

Effectiveness:

Barlean's Forti-Flax provides a variety of healthful ingredients. The dosage of most of these ingredients is relatively small. However, if you desire higher concentrations of these ingredients, simply add more Barlean's Forti-Flax. Therefore, for effectiveness, I award Barlean's Forti-Flax an 8/10.

Overall Review:

I felt that Barlean's Forti-Flax's claim was relatively honest. Initially, I thought that the flax would be easily detectable and undesirable. I was impressed to see how undetectable the taste of Barlean's Forti-Flax was. The solubility/texture is what you would expect, very poor. However, keep in mind that you're not dealing with a powder but instead, actual flaxseeds. I felt that Barlean's Forti-Flax is a healthful product. Therefore, for an overall review, I award Barlean's Forti-Flax a 7/10.
