The Linette Commitment to Bleu-Blanc Coeur
Linette® is a product that was born by chance in 2002....
The Bleu-Blanc-Coeur Association was conducting its first clinical studies to compare the Bleu-Blanc-Coeur "Diet" with a standard 'control' group. The aim was to measure how effectively a high quality diet fed to animals would carry through as a benefit in a human diet based on those same animal products.
As one part of the experiment, Bleu-Blanc-Coeur wanted to give one group of volunteers a vegetarian diet that was equivalent to a similar diet based on animal products. In order to acheive equivalent levels of Omega-3 in the vegetarian diet they created a linseed based flour (Linette) to be used in the experiment.
When the results came in, the first question that they were asked was - "Where can I get supplies of Linette?"
From that moment, Bleu-Blanc-Coeur decided that they would find a way to provide all consumers with the Linette product.
Bleu-Blanc-Coeur approached Valorex, a company specialising in the treatment of linseed, to develop Linette in the form that we see it today.
Linette is made from linseed seed grown by producers following the Bleu-Blanc-Coeur approach with varieties specialy selected for their high omega-3 content and fully traceable from the field to the plate.
