The Goodness inside and how we make it?

 

Do your products get heated or pasteurised? What does this do to the quality of the flax?

Just like other dairy and plant-based milks, our products go through a steam-infused UHT (ultra-high temperature) pasteurization process. The exposure to only a few seconds of 145 degree heat helps to preserve the taste and nutrition of our products, while ensuring the safety and quality of the product. Both the quality and benefits of our flax oil are unharmed during the heating process.

 

What kind of Omegas are found in your Flaxmilk? DHA/EPA or ALA?

All of our Omega-3s are found exclusively from flax seeds, meaning our Omega source is exclusively ALA. Our products contain cold-pressed flax oil to deliver the highest quality of Omegas per serving.

 

What is rapeseed lecithin? How is it sourced? From GMO inputs?

Rapeseed lecithin is derived from the plant tissues of rapeseed and is non-GMO certified. Nutritionally, it is an emulsifier that gives our products their creamy texture.

 

What is Xanthan gum and Gellan gum? How is it sourced? Are these ingredients vegan?

Both xanthan gum and gellan gum are used to stabilise the product and provide a smooth and creamy texture. Both are vegan friendly, non-GMO certified, and not produced with any animal by-products. You can call it flour.

 

What types of sweetener do you use?

We use fine sugar for the original Sweetened and the Macchiato

Our Original varieties contain Stevia.

 

How much Calcium do your products contain per serving?

Each serving of products has 30% of the FDA recommended daily value for Calcium.

Where do you source your flax from?

We source our flax from a variety of sources in North America, including US and Canadian farmers.

 

What is flax drink?

Flax drink is a major-allergen-free, non-dairy milk alternative with a smooth and creamy texture and delicious taste. Since it is produced with high-quality cold-pressed flaxseed oil, all of our flax milk varieties also have 1200mg of Omega-3s per serving.

 

Freshness

 

How long will your products stay fresh after opening?

The recommended use within date is 7-10 days after opening when refrigerated. However, if our products are unopened and refrigerated properly, they will be fresh until best before date printed on the top of each carton.

 

Can I heat the Flaxmilk without damaging the Omega-3s?

Yes. The flax oil in our flax milk is stable, so you will not have any problems with Omega-3 retention during reasonable heating.

 

Can I cook and bake with OOOMEGA products?

Yes, you can safely cook and bake with our OOOMEGA products. In most cases, you can substitute our flax milk for dairy milk in your favorite recipes.

 

Can I use Flaxmilk as a coffee creamer?

Absolutely! Although our flax milks were not specifically formulated to act as coffee creamers, they can be mixed with hot or cold beverages as desired.

 

Can OOOMEGA products be frozen?

OOOMEGA products can be safely frozen, however the process can alter their smooth and creamy consistency. Additionally, we would not recommend freezing them in their original packaging. Freezing can cause the products to expand and rupture the packaging.
