Brown flax seeds.
Ground Brown Flaxseed adds taste, texture and nutrition to recipes ranging from baked goods like bread and granola to breakfast cereal, oatmeal and salads. Our Ground Brown Flaxseed has been milled into a smooth meal that can be substituted for some of the flour in baking recipes or stirred into sauces or stews to add a bit of flavor and a dash of extra nutrients.
Flaxseed periodically appears on lists of the healthiest foods, and with good reason. Studies have linked increased consumption of Flaxseed to reductions in the occurrence of everything from breast, prostate and colon cancer and diabetes to heart disease and arthritis. The seeds are high in both soluble and insoluble fiber and rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, "good" fats that have heart-healthy benefits. Flaxseed also contains lignans, which have antioxidant qualities and can protect against cancer by interfering with the growth and spread of tumor cells. For maximum health benefits, flaxseed is best consumed ground, as the seeds are too hard and small to be ground by chewing and cannot be digested whole.
Oatmeal cookies are an ideal application for our nutritious Ground Brown Flaxseeds, as their color, flavor and texture all blend well with the other recipe ingredients. The flaxseeds add nutty flavor and various health benefits, including a hearty dose of omega-3 fatty acids.
