Brown Flaxseed, also known as linseed, comes from the flax plant. The seeds, which are a little larger than sesame seeds, contain omega-3 fatty acids, dietary fiber, and protein. Used since ancient times, flax is renowned for myriad health benefits. Add flaxseeds to breads, cookies, cereals, and pilafs, or grind them into flaxseed meal at home using a small electric grinder.


Brown flaxseed, also known as linseed, comes from the flax plant, which is cultivated for its seeds as well as its fiber. The seeds, which are a little larger than sesame seeds, contain omega-3 fatty acids, dietary fiber, and lignans. Used since ancient times, flax is renowned for myriad health benefits.

Don't let the tiny, unimposing size of the flaxseed fool you. Packed inside every teeny seed is a mountain of nutritional benefit. For instance, flaxseeds are an excellent source of fiber. They are also the most widely available botanical source of omega-3 fatty acids. Most Americans don't consume nearly enough omega-3's, and eating flaxseeds is an easy and tasty way to get these essential fats in your diet! Other health benefits provided by regular consumption of flaxseed are prevention and control of high blood pressure and reduction of cholesterol levels.

These seeds can be eaten whole, or sprouted or ground to make their vital nutrients available to the body. Add flaxseed to bread, muffins, bars, biscuits, crackers, granola, cookies and other recipes for extra nutrition and a nutty flavor. See the back of our package for two terrific recipes using our Flaxseed—Bulgur & Flax Pilaf and Three Seed Bread!

  1. Like this product

    by Fort Wayne Native on 05 Tue,2017


    I grind my own brown flaxseeds to mix with banana and yogurt and these are so good to use. I even sprinkle them whole on other dishes.

  2. Full of chaff

    by Mark on 04 Sun,2017


    The last 25 lb bag i got of brown flaxseed was heavy with chaff throughout.. i grind it so it wasn't too important but that chaff always made a big mess.. I will think twice about ordering it again

  3. Give Your Pizza a Health Kick

    by Joyfully Flour on 01 Sun,2012

    I ran out of cornmeal while making pizzas, and sprinkled flax seed meal on the bottom of the crust as you would cornmeal. The flax seed meal did the same as sprinkling of cornmeal, but offered a delightful new and complex texture. Just one example of the many ways you can really put this product to work in day-to-day recipes.

  4. Flaxseed is extremely nutritious

    by pad69jr on 04 Fri,2011

    The flax see works real well in cooking even fresh salads. We use it to make our own granola bars too for a healthy snack.

  5. Wonderful health addition to your recipe

    by Estee on 09 Tue,2010

    Add to anything. Muffins, granola,breads-it's all good.Tastes great and hardly noticed in baked foods. You can get ground form and add part into your flour for recipes to add fiber, omega source and nutritious.
