Our Next Generation Grains redefine the
entire category.

Since 2007, Glanbia has conducted extensive R&D work on flaxseed and its components to identify new ways to deliver value for our customers. We have pioneered proprietary processing methods to expand particle size options and increase ingredient functionality. Our brand new, concrete-constructed Next Generation Grains processing facility in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, extends our commitment to product innovation while setting new standards for food safety and quality.

But it’s not just about flax anymore. Glanbia Nutritionals also now offers a growing portfolio of chia ingredients, and specialty sorghum, amaranth and quinoa ingredients.

Because of our experience with specialty grains and seeds and the functional and nutritional potential they deliver, we’re moving faster than anyone, allowing you to add these ingredients to more applications, expand your product offering, and get to market quicker.
