They are using slighly defatted flax for the bread, specifically the linolenic acid (or alpha linolenic acid if you call it that) ALA.
Its not bad, most of the omega 6 fats iwll come from the vegetable oil. PRobably as good as any other bread that you purchase, but having no white flour in it at all will make it nice and dense =) high energy density unforunately.
