The new CanMar facility was built in 2004 and was specifically designed to clean, roast and package flaxseed all at one location. CanMar is specialized in the roasting of flaxseed for human consumption. CanMar’s unique roasting process is a value added process that gently roasts flaxseed without altering the nutritional profile of the seeds. Roasting enhances value through quality, safety, nutrition, convenience and flavor. In the state-of-the-art food grade facility CanMar produces roasted flaxseed for the retail market and wholesale market worldwide. Retail products are sold under the Flax for Nutrition brand.
Roasted bulk products include
- golden roasted whole seed flaxseed
- milled golden roasted flaxseed
- brown roasted whole seed flaxseed
CanMar is the only facility roasting flaxseed and therefore differentiates itself from other flaxseed companies by the ability to add value to a nutritious agricultural food product. Roasting flaxseed adds great nutty aroma and toasted taste, a crunchy texture and delivers a safer product to consumers. Heat treatments such as roasting or pasteurization have a significant impact on increased food safety. Compared to raw flaxseed roasted whole seed flaxseed can be consumed without the need to pre mill.
The facility is kosher and Eco Cert certified, nut free, dairy free, egg free and gluten free.
CanMar Grain Products Ltd. has achieved SQF level 2 certification for safe food management practice.
In April 2015 CanMar Grain Products Ltd. has been awarded with the Paragon Award from the Regina Chamber of Commerce for its export achievements.
