The Canadian Nutrition Facts Label Guidelines for Labelling Ground Whole Flaxseed
Nutrition labelling regulations in Canada require, with a few exemptions, a Nutrition Facts table on prepackaged foods. The Nutrition Facts table for ground whole flaxseed shows a serving amount of 2 Tbsp (30 mL) or 16 g. The Nutrition Facts table has a consistent format and provides information on serving size, calories, % Daily Value (% DV), and 13 core nutrients. Declaration of additional nutrients is optional. The serving size is the basis for the nutrient information shown on the label.
