Pizzey's Nutritionals (previously Pizzey’s Milling) was founded in 1991 upon the principle that a growing market opportunity for flaxseed ingredients, driven by mounting nutritional and medical evidence of its benefits should be anchored upon a foundation of good business practices and sound science. What began as a family farming operation transformed itself into a bakery before evolving into North America's largest, most experienced specialty-flaxseed ingredient supplier. Pizzey’s flaxseed products are developed through scientific research which aims to determine the optimum processing technologies to ensure highly nutritious and stable ingredients. Pizzey’s Nutritionals was recently acquired by Glanbia, plc.
Pizzey’s newest ingredient, UltraGrad™ is a unique ingredient which delivers a consistently fresh, highly nutritious, naturally stable flaxseed with all the benefits of ALA Omega 3 plus EPA and DHA Omega 3 from OmegaPure fish oil. Pizzey’s patented MeadowPure™ seed selection process guarantees stability for up to two years on Pizzey’s MeadowPure flaxseed products. These products uniquely combined with OmegaPure oil offer excellent shelf life when stored at ambient temperature. No special handling or storage is needed. Pizzey’s UltraGrad™ is available in numerous grind sizes suitable for various applications including bakery, beverage, pasta and cereal, and supplements.
Incorporation of this product allows for Nutrient Content Claims and Structure Function Claims for ALA and a Qualified Heart Health Claim for EPA and DHA Omega 3.
