    Ingredients

    Brown flax seeds.

    Flax (Linum usitatissimum) refers to the versatile annual plant that produces both the fibers used to make linen and flaxseeds. 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.
    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.
