Organic flax seed is an excellent source of fiber. Flax is also the most widely available botanical source of omega-3 fatty acids. Most followers of the Western diet don’t consume nearly enough omega-3s, and eating brown flax is an easy and tasty way to get these essential fats in your diet, as well as plant-based protein—especially vital for vegetarians and vegans.
While whole flaxseeds are full of nutrients, they are very hard for the body to break down: ground flaxseed is much more readily absorbed. Fortunately, making ground flax is easy: just use your home mill, a spice grinder or a high-speed blender. You can even sprout our brown flaxseeds!
Add flaxseed to bread, muffins, bars, biscuits, crackers, granola, cereal, cookies and other dishes—check the recipes tab for inspiration!
