What is the difference between concentrated lignans and flaxseed hulls?

The flaxseed contains two parts: the hull and the embryo. We separate the hull from the embryo to produce pure flaxseed hulls. The lignans are found only in the hulls. Thus, the hulls are more concentrated with lignan than whole flaxseed. Consuming flaxseed lignans provides the benefits of whole flaxseed without having to eat several pounds of it. Flaxseed hulls also have other components: they contain fiber and antioxidants. We do not use chemicals to concentrate the lignans. The lignans are concentrated solely by virtue of the hulls’ separation from the embryo. Some of our product descriptions say “concentrated lignans” and others say “flaxseed hulls.” They are both the same.
