Linwoods Healthy Super Foods - Competition

The Linwoods range of delicious, nutritious ‘Super Foods’ is the perfect solution for those who want to ensure that their diet comprises the essential fatty acids, vitamins and minerals that can add such quality to life and living.  Their range of ground seeds, nuts and berries can add that healthy boost to almost everything you eat. Importantly, all of the Linwoods Super Foods products are gluten free and have no added sugar.

There are nine different Super Foods in the Linwoods range, which includes shelled hemp, and milled flaxseed. You simply add the super foods to your everyday meals, such as cereal, smoothies, curries and casseroles.   Add a spoonful everyday to any meal to help maintain a healthy heart, boost you energy and support a well-balanced diet.  Linwoods have kindly sent me three of their super foods to share with my loyal followers.

Whole Sun-Dried Goji Berries
Linwoods Whole Sun Dried Goji Berries are a small, red, raisin- berry from China and are considered a national treasure there because of the antioxidant properties and health benefits these berries are believed to provide. Linwoods Goji Berries come from the Ningxia region in North West China. The Ningxia region offers the ideal soil conditions for growing Goji Berries as the Huang He (Yellow) river, which originates in the Himalayan Mountains, flows through this province and deposits vitamins and minerals into the soil thereby creating super fertile silt-water flood plains found no else on earth. The unusual alkaline soil, unpredic precipitation and extreme temperature range ensures that Linwoods Goji Berries are packed full of beneficial nutrients including Protein, Antioxidants, Iron and Dietary Fiber.


Linwoods Whole Sun Dried Goji Berries are a good source of Iron with 10% of your RDI in 30g/1oz. Iron supports the transport of oxygen around the body and the reproduction of red blood cells. They are also a good source of Dietary Fiber which aids digestion and helps maintain regularity and cholesterol levels that are already within normal range. In addition, one serving provides 8% of your RDI of Vitamin C and 6% RDI of Vitamin A.

If you click on the link above you can find out more about the Linwoods Goji Berries, purchase online and find a delicious recipe for Fragrant Chicken Curry with Goji Berries (see the yummy looking picture on the left).


This delicious mix of Flaxseed, Sunflower, Pumpkin and Sesame Seeds and Goji Berries is bursting with a range of essential fatty acids, vitamins and minerals to deliver some excellent health benefits. It has all the great benefits of Flaxseed, but the additional ingredients introduce vitamins such as Vitamin D, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, and B Vitamins into the mix.

This energy rich bl is nutritionally dense to support a balanced diet and active lifestyle. The finely ground texture of this mix means it is a substantial addition to any meal at any time of the day. Delicious in yogurt or sprinkled over salads for a nutritious boost. One serving provides 5g of Protein, 6g of Fiber and 8% of your RDI of Zinc and Iron.

There is a yummy sounding recipe on the Linwoods site for a Nutritious Fresh Fruit Salad (left).


Milled flaxseed, cocoa, strawberries and blueberries

You can now enjoy the luxurious taste of Cocoa knowing you are fortifying your diet with extra vitamins, minerals and nutrients! This delicious mix of ground Flaxseed, Cocoa, Strawberries and Blueberries contains Flavanols which are highly effective antioxidants that may help maintain a healthy heart and efficient circulation throughout the body. Just one serving (30g/1oz) of this delicious mix gives you the same antioxidants as all this fruit and veg combined!


This delicious mix is also a good source of Iron and Zinc. Zinc supports the immune system function and may protect the body’s cells and tissues and you get 10% of your RDI of Zinc per serving. As well as the Omega 3 benefits from the Flaxseed, you also have 10% of your RDI of Iron and Vitamin B1 plus 8g of Dietary Fiber per serving. All these valuable vitamins and minerals assist in supporting the body’s normal functioning and gives you a nutritious boost to your diet.

The recipe on the Linwoods website for this mix is for buckwheat, flaxseed, cocoa and berry crepes (left). Yum!
