    Ingredients

    Flax seeds.

    Flax (Linum usitatissimum) refers to the versatile annual plant that produces both the fibers used to make flaxseeds, also known as linseed. Flax was first cultivated in the Fertile Crescent as a fiber crop between 4,000 and 2,000 B.C., but from the very beginning people realized the culinary potential of flaxseeds. Today, certain varieties of flax are grown as oilseed crops, while others are grown to produce non-food grade flaxseed (or linseed) oil that is used in wood finishes, paints, coatings and industrial supplies.

    Golden Flaxseed is renowned for its light, buttery flavor. It is easily ground into flax meal using a spice grinder, and can be substituted for some of the flour in baking recipes or stirred into sauces or stews to add flavor and a nutritional boost. Flaxseeds are high in both soluble and insoluble fiber and rich in Omega-3 fatty acids.

    Flaxseed can also offer an alternative to eggs in vegan recipes. Simmering 1 tablespoon of flaxseed in 3 tablespoons water produces a mixture with an egg-like consistency, which can be substituted for 1 egg.
